Aurorae Theme Engine

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  12317
Submitted:  Jun 18 2009
Updated:  Aug 14 2009

Description:

This version is for KDE SC 4.3. If you use KDE SC 4.4 or later, please use the version of Aurorae shipped with KDE SC and do not install the version offered here!

For creating themes it is recommended to use the Aurorae Designer (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/AuroraeDesigner?content=122763).

Aurorae is a theme engine for KWin window decorations. A howto for creating themes can be found on http://techbase.kde.org/User:Mgraesslin/Aurorae

It was created with the idea of making KWin decorations as themeable as the Plasma desktop shell. Decoration and buttons are SVG files.

This theme engine requires KDE 4.3.

Packages are available for ArchLinux: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=27499

and the ebuild for Gentoo:
http://anpn.de/aurorae-0.2.0.ebuild

In Kubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 Aurorae can be installed with the package kwin-style-aurorae.

Themes are available in the Aurorae category or can be downloaded directly via GHNS in the configuration module




Changelog:

0.2.1;
* Restrict painting of the svg to the decoration. No need to paint behind the window as it isn't visible anyway.That seems to fix the most painfull performance issues with Aurorae. (svn rev 1011338)

0.2.0:
* Do not hardcode the menu icon size (svn 1007235)
* GHNS (svn 1007228)
* Update window mask when compositing is suspended/resumed (svn 1003235)
* Configurable text shadow (svn 998382)
* Custom button width for each button type (svn 998257)
* Window mask is not calculated from SVG when compositing is active (svn 994961)
* Don't paint deco on other screen when window is maximized (svn 994960)

0.1.1:
* added COPYING file
* synced source changes to rev 990494

0.1.0:
add version to tar-ball

 Found a bug

With dual monitors maximizing a window in one monitor puts a side of the window decoration into the other monitor, but only the decoration. If you need a better description of what I'm saying I can upload a photo.

mgraesslin...good job on creating this theme-able kwin manager!!! Do you plan add more options and functionality?

I would like to see*:
- Text alignment (left, center, right) for the application name in the titlebar.
- Option to set round corners
- Options to change the width of the the borders and titlebar.
- Options to change the transparency of the borders and titlebar**
- And an option to change the images of the borders and buttons***

* I realize these may not even be possible with the limitations of kwin and/or being able to code these in.

** As it is now, KDE allows you to change the "translucency" of the window decorations. But setting it too low, causes the application name and buttons to be transparent as well making them hard to see. This needs to be an independent setting to allow the name and buttons to not be set with transparency.

***More functional without being restricted to what the theme is. These could be separate border themes and button themes to make it more customizable.

Some of these are already available in Crystal, Dekorator, Nitrogen, and a few others.

Thanks and good job again!

- Text alignment (left, center, right) for the application name in the titlebar.
Already available as part of the theme configuration
- Option to set round corners
Possible in svgs
- Options to change the width of the the borders and titlebar.
Available in the theme configuration
- Options to change the transparency of the borders and titlebar**
It's in the svg
- And an option to change the images of the borders and buttons***
That's a theme engine. It takes themes consisting of svgs for the decoration and the buttons. And there is one configuration file for border width. etc.

Everything is already there and of course there won't be an option to change that as it's supposed to be done in the theme.

Hi... i'm making a theme but i have a problem. I want to change the close button with a svg file but when I test the theme there is a empty space instead of the close button... What's wrong?

Thanks

if there is an empty space the required element prefices are missing. Please have a look at the theme description file explaining how to name the elements or have a look at the existing deco.

Can I use the png for the buttons? find or create good svg is very difficult ... I think you should add this option to use png instead of svg

Sorry the whole thing about this engine is to have an svg engine. For pngs there is dekorator. Using pngs - that is unscalable graphics - would destroy the sense of the scaling theme engine.

First thing, I really like your theme engine, I hope it will be merged into the main KDE project.

Is it possible to use the "stay in foreground" button, with this engine?

It is already merged into KDE trunk - it will be part of KDE 4.4.

Yes it's possible to use the keep above button, but the used theme has to provide an svg file for the button. The engine only uses buttons which are supported by the theme.

I haven't even noticed this document, because installed directly from the openSUSE repository...
Probably it would be better if you could provide the documentation also somewhere on the internet (maybe kde-techbase).

Do you plan add more options and functionality?

I would like to see:
- Option to set glow text in title (like vista theme or vrunner engine emerald)
- Options to change the width of the button close (themes like chrome and vista)

Sorry I don't know what it is supposed to look like and I must admit that I don't understand the source code you added - it is out of context and I language I don't know.
- Options to change the width of the button close (themes like chrome and vista)
Individual button width? Yes that can be added. I think individual button height does not make sense

With rev 998257( http://websvn.kde.org/?view=rev&revision=998257) it is possible to define a custom width for each button type.

about the glow:

I added a text shadow in rev 998382. I guess I could extend it to be more configurable to make such a glow possible.

sorry to say but KDE 4.2 is not supported. It might be better for you to just wait for distribution packages which will probably be available together with KDE 4.3.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
