Another patch, after an idea by MohammadAG - removes the blurring and instead amplifies the desaturation. I'll leave it to others to clean up the patch and merge it into MHD or any of the builds that are floating around

Get it here: "noblur" Patch against hildon-desktop_2.2.140-1+0m5

If you do not fear scratchbox, just:

Code:
apt-get source hildon-desktop
patch < /path/to/hildon_desktop_noblur.patch
cd hildon-desktop-2.2.140
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b
cd ..
scp hildon-desktop_2.2.140-1+0m5_armel.deb n900:
ssh n900
sudo gainroot
dpkg -i hildon-desktop_2.2.140-1+0m5_armel.deb
killall hildon-desktop

Why not? It makes it easier to see what's behind the current popup, so when you go back, you can already target the next UI item (unscientific, non-evaluated guess). It also looks better IMHO, but you are free not to use it.

Yes, because there is no need to blur iteratively multiple times (which is how the blur is implemented AFAICT).

a bit confused
how is this different from editing transitions.ini, disabling the blur and making the saturation zero?

Disabling blur overrides 0 saturation, try it yourself, you'll see the background as it is, this patch makes it more ala Symbian^3 or MeeGo, a bit more resource friendly.

Oh and here's a deb with this applied on top of http://gitorious.org/community-ssu/hildon-desktop

http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/...rize_armel.deb

Question: do those sources (or Mohammad's preopackaged deb) include the thing that enables portrait-mode status-menu opening (the hildon-desktop part, obviously, not the hildon-status-menu part)? Because that's far more valuable to me than this. (Or, indeed, than the entire SSU, probably - in that I would wait until I could figure out how to readd portrait mode status menu opening before bothering to upgrade to community SSU.)
