AKDC means Advanced Kwin Decoration Client ;-)

The Themes you use in your Project are from various great skinners and artist which design skins for the software Windowblinds on Windows.

Like Alexandrie and treetog from Pixstudio with their Soft Crystal, Nvidia and Corona Theme.

see here >>


GIVE CREDIT to them/him!!
Its MORE THAN UNFAIR to just use an Artists work without even mentioning it is his.
Nevermind if he designes art for Windows or Linux.

Unfair yes - just tread lightly. I've seen numerous comments from people complaining about use of GPLd and LGPLd work. As far as everyone's favorite licenses are concerned, asking permission is just courteous and not required.

READ the GPL! You need to credit all authors. You don't need to ask for permission to modify it, but you still have to credit the original authors and thats what the thread initiator wanted to express.

To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box, you just need to work on it.

I've read the GPL. I can recite it for you if you like. :)

My point is people confuse the fact that when you GPL something, that doesn't give you the right to restrict derivative works.

 Installation problem

I am getting this message when I try to configure any of the themes...checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

I have just reinstalled Fedora2 and didnt have any problem before, am I missing a dependency?

I fixed the problem. It appears that the updates after reinstalling Fedora2 didn't take the first time. Everything is working.

 Corona issues

 by oshogg on: Sep 17 2004
Score 50%


I love Corona style, but I have some issues with it.

1. The colors of the title bar and the "buttons frame" does not respect the window title color defined in the Colors tab. This is sooooo bad.

2. By default, the help (question mark) icon is not displayed - even when apps specify to use it (like Kcontrol). when, user enables "custom titlebar buttons position", and configure it to have the help icon on the right top corner, it looks really bad.

3. The window frame is toooo think in my opinion. I would like the thickness of the 'button frame" and the thickness of the title frame on the left side configurable. The default titlebar height is fine for me but some may want to modify it.

4. I think the titlebar frame should be colored in "Title bar" color and the "buttons frame" should be colored in Title blend color. Otherwise, Corona really looks out of place in some other color scheme than the "light bluish" one.

Keep up the good work,

 cpu-load goes up???

Score 50%

I must admin that i really, really love your work, but I have a serious question:

Do you have any idea why my cpu-load is around 10% (so about 12% when nothing to do ^^) higher than with standard-kde-win-decos (like plastik or whatever)? I really like the themes but if I loose 1/10th of my CPU-potential this is to much!

first thanks for use akdc

i make test about performance with kde 3.3 and suse 9.1 in my pII 333 with 128 mb ram
and a geforce 2 gts(6111) and processor load is less than 6 doing anything
PD i use xorg 6.8

is possible an XRender problem or you have not the XRender extension active at all maybe a buggy driver like ati's one check your X conf

you can download the beta 2 release

for more info you need to send me all possible information to jrch99@cantv.net

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.
