Window Decoration native KDE 4

Smaragd is a window decoration engine for the KDE window manager KWin. It allows you to use Emerald theme files (from Compiz/Beryl) with KDE SC 4.

Please read on before writing bug reports!

Installation and Usage
* You have to compile from source, needs cairo, glib2 and kdebase-workspace development headers (see INSTALL file)
* Restart KWin when you had a previous version installed
* The *.emerald theme file has to be extracted to $HOME/.emerald/theme (make sure the file $HOME/.emerald/theme/theme.ini exists)
* You can also use the original Emerald theme manager to install and modify themes, but it is not needed for running
* There are well over 1500 themes available, browse them on http://openDesktop.org/index.php?xcontentmode=102x103

Known Bugs
* Shadow offsets are broken (use KWin shadows for now)
* No theme installation/configuration dialog

Ubuntu binary kindly provided by Sam Rog, thanks!

It would be great if like Oxygen, right-click on the titlebar can opt to Move Window to Group.

Buttons in inactive window with a strange shadow - buttons are slightly shifted to the right.
Active windows is OK

 I really like this....

...but gotta admit it is a little bit of a bother to use different emerald themes if you don't have the Emerald theme manager installed. But it isn't that much trouble to rename theme folders from theme to theme-a then theme-b to theme. ;)

Thanks! I kinda like this better than kwin-style-Dekorator!

If you compile from source, you also need the required -dev packages. Just follow the error messages.

Install kdebase-workbase-dev and it compiles all the way through.

I am still on KDE4, and not sure when I will switch. Right now, there are too many bugs, especially with decoration settings.

KDE 5 still supports Aurorae, so I've been working on a script that converts emerald themes to aurorae. I mostly have the vrunner engine working, but mapping settings between all the emerald engines and aurorae is not the easiest thing!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
