Description:

Gtk+ module to activate RGBA in gtk apps.
Use it with Cimitan\'s murrine theme engine instead of patching applications.

Thanks to VMChaZ for help with debug.
http://home.kis.ru/~vmchaz

Installation
Just use PPA or (1) and (2)
1) Compile it:
gcc -fPIC -shared librgba.c -o librgba.so `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`
2) Copy librgba.so to /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules.

3) Install Cimitan\'s murrine engine and themes for it
4) Activate RGBA:
- Open gnome-color-chooser
- go to \"Engines\" tab
- set \"global\" checkbox
- Choose \"Murrine\"
- Click preferences
- set 2 RGBA checkboxes
5)Add export GTK_MODULES=rgba to .profile
Set environment variable GTK_RGBA_APPS (usually add to .profile).
export GTK_RGBA_APPS= list of applications

GTK_RGBA_APPS variable
- set it to colon separated list of applications to activate rgba ONLY in these apps:
GTK_RGBA_APPS=gedit:app2:app3

- append \"allbut\" to start to activate rgba in ALL apps except listed:
GTK_RGBA_APPS=allbut:gedit:app2:app3

FAQ
Q: Some applications does not work. Is it bug?
A: It is Ok, and not bug of RGBA Gtk+ module.
Not all apps can use RGBA.
You SHOULD set up GTK_RGBA_APPS variable.
For example:
GTK_RGBA_APPS=gedit:gcacltool:gnome-help - Activate RGBA ONLY in gnome edit, gnome calculator and gnome help.
or
GTK_RGBA_APPS=allbut:gedit:gcacltool:gnome-help - Activate RGBA in ALL applications except listed.

P.S. Sorry for bad English.




Changelog:

0.2
prints name of program to console when rgba activated.

0.1
first release

hi, thanks for doing this work.
I got these error message when trying to compile your .c file.

smif@introd>>gcc -fPIC -shared librgba.c -o librgba.so `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`
Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

you need o install the libgtk2-dev files.. i dont know what exact filename you will have on your distro but that will fix it.

hi, installing the dev library fixed the compilation error. My ~/.profile looks like this now:

export GTK_MODULES=rgba
export GTK_RGBA_APPS=gedit:gnome-terminal:gcalctool:baobab

It works.

I suggest you to make a list of apps that breaks and editing a ~/.profile file that new linux users can download..

thanks for doing this!!

You have to logout and back in to make this work.
And to test rgba, you first have to enable rgba in your gtkrc, type "export GTK_RGBA_APPS=allbut" in the terminal,
after that, type for example "gedit" in the terminal.
Good luck!

/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules

 errors

 
 by zhuqin on: Mar 6 2009

The gnome related apps work fine, some other gtk apps work, too. However, quite a few have such errors and crash:

RGBA on
The program 'pidgin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 250 error_code 8 request_code 2 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

hello,
it works quite nice except on some applications it's right (as you said)
nautilus does not display background at all
here the copy of my ~/.profile file

export GTK_MODULES=rgba
export GTK_RGBA_APPS=allbut:nautilus:pidgin:gnome-panel:firefox:rhythmbox:netspeed_applet2:GlobalMenu.PanelApplet

like that it's working quite well
i hope nautilus "bug" will find a workaround soon.
Thank you a lot good bye
