Window Decoration native KDE 4

Score 86%


Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  3394
Submitted:  Jan 24 2010

This is a titlebar-less decoration, inspired by Google Chrome, and
Nitrogen minimal mod

Instead of the traditional full-width titlebar, a mini-titlebar is
placed at the upper-right corner of the application window --- where
usually is unused by the application menu bar.

Because notebooks today have very wide screens but limited in height,
I think this saving in the vertical space can be good.


Please following instructions in the INSTALL file.


Just use the small bar in the top-right corner as your good old titlebar.

Ctrl-MouseWheel grows/shrinks the bar. So if your window title is
really long, you can make the bar wider.


Begin with v0.1, Chromi uses themes from Aurorae Theme Engine
You can download dozens of Aurorae themes in the configuration UI.

Chromi ships with Scnd101's "Chrome Aurorae" theme
as the default. If you customized the theme SVG files in older
versions, please move SVG files from /usr/share/kde4/apps/chromi to
/usr/share/kde4/aurorae/themes/chrome. Chromi no longer load theme
files from the former directory.

Config File
You can change various settings in the [Engine] section in ~/.kde/share/config/chromirc:

The default width of the mini-titlebar.

Window narrower than this will use full titlebar. Set it to -1 to disable this checking.

Known Problems
* Full-width titlebar has no hovering effect.


0.2 (2010-02-23):

* Support customized button positions.
Only buttons in the right side are shown.
App icon and shade buttons are not supported yet.


* If the initial window width is less than MinimalWindowSize (default is 500), use full titlebar.

* Use Aurorae's KNewStuff file. We used a renamed file (chromi.knsrc
vs. aurorae.knsrc), but then themes installed in Chromi is shown as
uninstalled in Aurorae, and vice versa. Now Chromi installs the
untouched aurorae.knsrc, and only do so when it's not found.

Note all themes previously installed in Chromi will still shown as
uninstalled in Aurorae. You'll need to install them again.


* Remember titlebar width settings for each window classes.


* Use Aurorae themes

* Revert to traditional, full-width titlebar for dialog and toolbox

* Ctrl-MouseWheel grows/shrinks titlebar.

* Transparent theme has system color as the background. So you can set
the "titlebar color" in SystemSettings to tweak the tone of the
theme. (Thanks for furumaro's suggestion.)

* Smoothed corners of the titlebar. (Thanks for IkaCoast's suggestion.)

* Maximize button uses "restore" image when maximized.

* Use hover/pressed image.

* Fixed preview.


Borrowed artwork from Chrome Aurorae
(http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Chrome+Aurorae?content=119106). Button
animations still missing.


A minimal implementation that barely works.

Hey, nice work! I really like it ;)

It would be cool if there was just an icon of the app (instead of the whole name) because in 99% of the cases, it doesn't fit in there ;)

Anyway, great job!

You are right about long title lines. What makes me mad is they don't have to be that long --- look at the screenshot, the three windows could easily titled "Dolphin", "Konsole", and "Emacs", because the document name is available in other part of the window.

Icon-only is a solution, but it doesn't look as good...

Hey man, this is a great idea. Its a little bit unusual, because when i want to make my window smaller, i go with my mousepointer to the center of the titlebar and doubleclick. Nevertheless, you nailed it. keep it up.

best regards

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.
