Keep it up you're doing a fine job
one thing as per usability though
the Configure Window Behaviour dialog (when run as a single kcm module) Becomes very large and unusable. Could you change it perhaps? Apart from that it's a great project :)

The problem isn't in his code, it's in the code that puts his panel into it's display. It doesn't give itself fixed dimensions and then check the panel size and set scroll bars for those that won't fit into it's window. That kcm program sizes itself based on the largest panel, which is ridiculous as we're discovering. It needs to run the same as the relevant window behaviour module in the KDE Control Centre does.

i know about this problem since alpha version but i have coding priorities and it's functionals from kwin control center modules(there is more important issues to do first)

in rc1 you will see a new control center module common for any akdc theme(based qwidgetstack)with a nice art that works on 640x480 monitors.

sorry about this and thanks

ASSK is not a really good name. Not only because of the first three letters, but more of what the acronym stands for: Advanced Skin Support for KDE. That's not true - it's just for KWin. And well... Is it really 'Advanced' just because it's a generic theme that uses Pixmaps for easy customization? No doubt - it's a great thing, especially since IceWM themes are pretty outdated with limited capabilities. But what makes this advanced? There is no big new functionality. (Well, I hope I can make myself clear without annoying you, which is really not my intention).

The next thing is 'Skin Support for KDE'. It sounds like it skins the KDE desktop, but it just skins the window decoration.

I would suggest a different name. What about KwiP - Kwin Pixmap theme?

Or what about Khameleon - since it changes the skin of Kwin like a Chameleon?

dude akdc (advanced kwin decoration client) is the first item on the assk project.

assk is composed by
kwin
kstyle
kaffeine
juk
kopete
kicker

on a second stage
kdetv
kontact

on a third stage
build a kde media player using kparts composed by juk, amarok, kaffeine, kdetv, konvert,kscd,and gstreamer with a common skin like wmp or winamp

akdc is really and advance because this is the only deco that use all the power of kwin, install it and compare it with those that come with kde and you will see the diference

Any idea of when you'll release your beta code? Any more details?

I'm willing to do an x86_64 package (rpm) btw. I just started a sf project (assuming it gets accepted) to package kde-look.org ware for the Fedora x86_64 core 2 distro.

 Very nice

I have installed Corona on all three of my linux boxes. It is clean, attractive but most of all NOT cartoonish.

So many icon sets and decos are either a rip off of another OS, bland or look like a 6th grader made them.

Very nice work, Thank You.

well actually corona is a "rip-off" of windows longhorn look(or the skin for winxp), as far as i know. in my eyes this doesnt make it bad in any way just wanted to let you know...

Sadly, I could never get this to compile correctly ever since its first release. Using Mandrake 10, here are the errors I get:

why are you using "make all-recursive"??? I just did the following:

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 (necessary to tell it where suse's KDE is)
make
su
make install

all called from inside the main directory of each "theme" when unpacked.

hey dude this is a pretty fucking weird failure because i'm not using openGL yet in this code, so what the hell your linker is looking for gl.

well let me see my makefiles, but this seem to be another mandrake's super bug

I know that libgl failure, you can temporarily fix it (read: long enough to get the program to compile) by statically linking the real libraries to that location.

IE ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.* /usr/X11R6/lib/

Then just remove the links you created after you compile, if you don't you'll have trouble (I know from experience).

my compiles keep choking and I think it's because of the the kdecoration.h and kdecorationfactory.h header files. Does anyone know where I might find these files? Using Knoppix 3.6 w/ KDE 3.2.3.

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
