Aurorae Theme Engine

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  12435
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 Aurorae category is for Aurorae themes. The theme engine itself is still a native decoration. So it has to stay in this category.

 compositing performances

is it just me or compositing effects like minimize and maximize windows hang when an aurorae deco is used?

I have a nvidia 8600GT and compositing effects run smooth when I use other window deco

On Kubuntu 9.04 KDE 4.3, in order for this to work I had to install the package kdebase-workspace-dev

then install,

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

Everything should work, it did for me.

Thanks, it looks stunning.

Unfortunately I've had to go back to oxygen as it's too slow here. While changing active window and / or virtual desktop is instantaneous with oxygen, there is a one/two second delay with Aurorae (and i've tried several themes).

As information, I'm using nvidia binary driver (185.xx) with a dual screen setup, opensuse 11.1 with KDE 4.3.0 from factory build service.

I'll try again next versions to see if there are any improvements.

Same problem here with 8800 GT, it seems to be a nvidia only problem, or is there someone without nvidia card having this problem?

Same problem here, more or less. The performance similar to the standard theme engine. But, randomly, there is some rather noticeable (I'd say about 700 mSec) hesitation.

I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) alpha 3, last updated at midnight GMT. KDE 4.3.0.0 Kernel: 2.6.31-5 x86_64.

The package is from the "universe" ubuntu repository: kwin-style-aurorae 0.2.0-0ubuntu1.

And it does indeed look great and promising!

Offtopic: does anyone know how to "pre-load" every widget in a "high-nice" thread so they are available for compositing effects quickly after their creation? That might take away the hesitation when the first time an effect is used.

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.
