   0.0.7  

Window Decoration native KDE 4

Score 89%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  7566
Submitted:  May 23 2010
Updated:  Sep 26 2010

Description:

Smaragd is a window decoration engine for the KDE window manager KWin. It allows you to use Emerald theme files (from Compiz/Beryl) with KDE SC 4.

Please read on before writing bug reports!

Installation and Usage
* You have to compile from source, needs cairo, glib2 and kdebase-workspace development headers (see INSTALL file)
* Restart KWin when you had a previous version installed
* The *.emerald theme file has to be extracted to $HOME/.emerald/theme (make sure the file $HOME/.emerald/theme/theme.ini exists)
* You can also use the original Emerald theme manager to install and modify themes, but it is not needed for running
* There are well over 1500 themes available, browse them on http://openDesktop.org/index.php?xcontentmode=102x103

Known Bugs
* Shadow offsets are broken (use KWin shadows for now)
* No theme installation/configuration dialog

Both 0.0.5 and SVN-version give an error when installing :( Both 0.0.x and SVN worked before today.

Delete CMakeCache.txt before running cmake. It looks like glib2 headers are not found.

Thanks! The glib dev files were removed. Odd, 'cause yesterday they were there and I didn't remove them :S Ah well, problem solved :)

 disable kwin blur?

 
 by steveke on: Jul 31 2010
 
Score 50%

Hello!

I've recently tried smaragd with this emerald theme:
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/BUMP.mod?content=128120

As you can probably imagine, it doesn't look quite right with the kwin blur effect on the win deco. Is there any possibility of adding a way to disable the blur effect for smaragd only? I'm not even entirely sure if this is the responsibility of the deco or kwin effect ;)

Thanks for your great work!

There is a discussion among KWin developers to add an configurable option for disabling blur on window decorations. It is very hard to automatically detect whether decorations are transparent, because the alpha channel is also used for smoothing corners.

The real fix, however, would be in Smaragd to better detect the shape of the window and generate a suitable mask, so that window decorations like the one you mentioned can be used together with the blur feature. Currently, Smaragd only detects "simple" corners for performance reasons.

I cannot say when smarter shape detection will be added to Smaragd, but I certainly considered it while creating the initial version, and it is also needed for better shadow generation.

Thank you for the explanation.

I guess at this stage it's just "wait and see".

The only issue I've noticed so far is when I'm using a dual monitor setup. I'll give you the specific example I'm running into, as I'm not sure if it is just this prog or other ones too (and I'm not at that computer at the moment).

When I use the terminal program "terminator" on my right monitor, and move it to the lower left of the right monitor, so the left side of the window touches the left side of the right monitor, the left side of the Emerald decoration has visual artifacts. The artifacts remain even if I move the window afterwards.

I suspect it has something to do with a dual monitor config needing to be taken into account in your code, but I'm not totally sure. It's not a big deal by any means but I figured I would mention it.

Thanks again for an awesome contribution!

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.
