Description:

I have compiled nautilus 2.22.3 from source with the patches and I have transparency now. Murrine engine and all patchs are not ready, so install it AT YOUR OWN RISK. You need a composite manager as Compiz fusion or the new metacity. It does not work on Nvidia graphics cards.

If you want this:

First: Install murrine engine svn and install some themes.

Second: Download Nautilus 2.22.3, 2.23.5 or 2.24.1 source. You can download all versions from here:

http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sources/nautilus/

Or download with apt-get:

Sudo apt-get source nautilus

Third: Install nautilus dependencies to compile. In debian or Ubuntu you can use:

sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus

fourth:Replace the nautilus-desktop-window.c and nautilus-window.c into the src folder in the nautilus source.

fifth: Remove your nautilus version.

sixth: Compile and install Nautilus.

./configure
make
sudo make install


Seventh: Restart Nautilus.


Thanks CIMI for murrine engine.
Thanks Zniavre for the updates.

I can confirm that this works on gnome 2.26.2 as well, as long as you use the new patches from the site referenced in the notes.

Thanks a lot!!! :-)
Is it also possible to set a REALLY transparent wallpaper? Togheter with the compiz wallpaper plugin, this would allow for different backgrounds for every viewport, without loss of functinality (i.e. desktop icons...) :D

It's not possible already, nautilus backgrounds and the compiz wallpapers plugins are not the same. If you want transparent wallpapers and not to loose desktop icons, you can change the transparency value of the cube if you are using this plugin, but use *.png wallpapers with transparency for example is not already possible, because gnome and nautilus don'n support it. If you want something like that, hack it, but i don't know how to.

When Nautilus draws the desktop, it actually draws a special fullscreen window with no toolbars, and sets the background to the gnome wallpaper. This desktop window is draw OVER the wallpapers managed by the Compiz plugin. Hacking Nautilus to behave just as the gnome-terminal (i.e. the background can be transparent), we would hav nautilus that manages the icons and draws a really transparent background, so that wallpapers from Compiz would be visible.
I re-wrote this because I'm not sure that we're talking about the same thing :P
So all I'm asking is really: would it be difficult to hack? I admit I'm not a programmer. But I'd like to have both icons and != wallpapers and this looks like the more conservative way to achieve it (wallpapoz looks more hacky than this...) Thanks for your attention! :)

sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus
