Oxygen is dead, long live Oxygen

posted under , by Pinheiro | Edit This
Today Hugo Pereira Da Costa hacker extraordinare of Nitrogen, the very popular window decoration theme in kde-look, merged it into Oxygen, this means that we will be able to have just one theme that can do what oxygen and ozone did and much much more. We will keep working on new options for its and removing options that can be removed. The shadow/glow generation code is being enhanced to offer more options and better glow. It introduces a new approach to the division between oxygen and ozone dilemma, that was suggested by another great hacker/designer Thomas Luebking, that ofers a nice option to people that want to color active and inactive windows in different colors, without making it look completely awkward.

"The oxygen style and window decoration have been the primary reason which made me switch to kde4 a couple of years ago. The window decoration at that time had however too few configuration options to my taste, and so Nitrogen (a fork of the original Oxygen) was born, then posted to kde-look. I got pretty excited when it was added to kde SVN repository about a month ago due to its (unexpected) popularity on kde-look, as a replacement for the previous Ozone fork. Today's even more thrilling, since we went one step further and merged Oxygen and Nitrogen, in order to have a one-and-only full-featured Oxygen decoration for the next kde release. The new Oxygen has customizable button and window border sizes, configurable drop-down shadows, and provides a nice highlight to the active window title bar in a way that is similar (but nicer looking IMHO) than what Ozone would do. It also allows one to define window-specific settings that overwrite the defaults. Not to mention that this brings me an official ticket into the wonderful Oxygen team, and we're all pretty excited about future plans and new features we will bring to users soon, starting from where we are now."

I LOVE OpenSource, and I love Nitrogen! Merging Oxygen and Nitrogen is a very great idea! Yay!

Djuro Drljaca said...

So do we now have 80% Nitrogen and 20% Oxygen? :)

Maybe it should be renamed to "Air"... :)

Pinheiro said...

@Djuro Drljaca :) heheheh.. Good one.

imrael said...

great news. i use nitrogen for few weeks.

Paul said...

Nitrogen is great so I'm glad to hear this. Firefox looks much better with the default background overriden!

I hope the glow becomes more configurable; I like the blue active glow but want to make it bigger, because even though it's the same size as the inactive (black) glow, it stands out less because of its colour.

Pinheiro said...

@Paul " inactive (black) glow, it stands out less because of its colour" exactly what we want to fix its should look more active not less, we will need to experiment on it with maybe double or triple coloring of the shadow....but work is going into it with is cool

What about nitrous oxide? KDE on happy gas ;-)

Augusto Leite said...

First, terrific job!!

I am using KDE trunk and i've been watching the progress of nitrogen (now oxygen) . On some old versions, there was an option to choose the button's style (kde 4.2, 4.3). Why isn't it available anymore? That option was great!

One question: How can I get this config?
(ozone like color + outlined title)

This is simply beautiful, but I am not able to get it.

Another thing: will the famous blue lines on the title be back?

Keep the excellent work.. thank you

Is there any way you can merg some bespin code into the oxygen theme just like the nitrogen code was merged into oxygen.
