Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  12595
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

the decoration works mostly good on my system but there is a problem when i mini- maximize windows. There is a delay of maybe a second and it seems a bit laggy. The processor usage jumps up more then on other decorations.

Are there others with the same problems or is it just me? I'm using archlinux and kdemod 4.2.96.

have same problem on core i7...

so i think this problem is because of some double-updates on special events or maybe because of unclean paintevent-code.

it is EXTREMELY slow to resize and the delay of clicking on windows and moving them is there too ... curious

I don't know how to install cmake files, I would like to install this theme but don't know how. Maybe you should add an install section within the readme, that would be helpful for people who hasn't worked with cmake files. In the meantime could you pm me on how to make and install the files.

I've never build any KDE app from a user point of view. So I can't provide an install file and there is no need as distros provide or will provide packages.

Here is the install from fancy tasks which should work as well:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
make
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4

I use Gentoo which only has kdelibs 4.2.4 not 4.2.92, which cmake errors that my kdelibs are too old. I guess I'll just have to wait

 options

hi.. would it be possible to edit theme options in system settings (maybe not all but button & title bar & border sizes for sure)? i don't think that ordinary users would edit this manually..

with restore default possibility..
windecorc.default (or something like this) would be installed and user changed file would be windecorc.user so after updating the user changes would outlast..
and this leads me to: would it be possible to implement gethotnewstuff?
thanks ;)

Changing options is not intended. Aurorae gives power to the designer not to the user. It is expected that the designer knows better than the user how the theme should look like and what the perfect border size is. Nevertheless it's still possible to overwrite the options by changing the values manually in the config file.

About ghns: already implemented and waiting for a kde-look update ;-)

I think Nitrogen/Oxygen cannot be compared with a theme engine. If you don't like one theme use another one. If you think it has to be changed fork it.

And there is no decision as that is a design goal.

i'm not a big fan of forking.. most of the times you'll end up with same thing in 5 almost similar versions.. but you are right the designer should know best how the theme should look like.. so let's hope that most of the themes doesn't give users the impression that something should be changed ;)
all the talk about options is probably caused (on my side) because there are not as many themes available yet..

hey, you must be kidding about this: "It is expected that the designer knows better than the user how the theme should look like". :)

That cannot be an argument against settings. The default look of a theme can be the designers choice but if a user wants to changes something it should be his decision. I don't want to attack you but i could not be quiet about your argumentation. ;) If you said "Its to hard to implement" or something like this i could agree but what you said is no argument against the possibility to change theme appearance by the user.

cheers :)

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.
