Re: make whisker menu blurry

Hello and welcome.

For those of us who don't use deepin or have different ideas on what "blurry" means, can you explain in a little more detail what you are looking for?

Re: make whisker menu blurry

This question has an example:

Deepin blurred menus

The link in the answer is broken, I think these are better:

https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GTK/Roadmap/GTK4

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=786057

https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/milestones/1

IMHO it's a boring and inconsequential addition, but what do I know?

Re: make whisker menu blurry

Assuming you are running the newer version of the Whiskermenu - built on GTK3....

Yes and no. No in that GTK3 CSS does not support image filters (yet). I'm assuming that the deepin menu has the code built-in to create the frosted look.

Yes, in that you can try to imitate the look. You can set image files to be the background of GTK3 images. I searched for "frosted glass" on google and found this image. Rotated it 90 degrees counter clockwise to make it fit the whiskermenu window. I then used the following code in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

#whiskermenu-window {
	background-image: url("file:///home/toz/Pictures/q.jpg");
}
#whiskermenu-window entry {
	background: transparent;
}
#whiskermenu-window treeview { 
	background: transparent;
}

...(note the path and name of the image file - you will need to change this to point to your image file).

End result:
Untitled.png

Naturally, you'll need to find a frosted glass image that better fits your image (or create one).

Hope this helps.

Hey, farhadmax69, this might be of interest to you:

I made a utility (really, a hack) that allows for fast gaussian blur in the compositor/window manager on Xfce. It comes with an installer script and a settings panel. (Please read the included Readme file first.) You can download it at kalideva.com/xfwm-effects.html.
