kwin dropshadow ebuilds and patches

this tarball contains the ebuild and patch files for kdelibs-3.3.0-r1.ebuild
and kdebase-3.3.0-r1.ebuild to enable suuport for kwin drop shadows as shown

proposal: there're some more cute enheancements at,
it would be probabely nice to see a useflag (kdelook?) that optionally
enheances kde gentoo distribution by those once, wouldn't it?
Comment 2 Gregorio Guidi (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-30 04:12:54 UTC
Why not submitting it to instead?
Comment 3 Christian Parpart (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-07 04:38:35 UTC
Well, as of X.Org's X11 Server, we can close this. I tested it, and I tested X.Org X11 (RC4) now for a while and I guess, its just a question of time since KDE's window manager gets official XComposite support.

So - even if functional - I believe we can close this :(

however, greets,
Christian Parpart.
