Smaragd (Emerald for KDE)

   0.0.7  

Window Decoration native KDE 4

Score 89%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  7455
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

Ubuntu binary kindly provided by Sam Rog, thanks!

If Smaragd does not appear in the System Settings window decoration list, then you have not installed Smaragd.

Even with no themes installed, Smaragd is listed there using a simple fallback theme.

Bug reported. When it is fixed, I will add the blur property to Smaragd to make it work.

It looks like someone responded to your bug post, and something else needs to be added to your code:

------- Comment #1 From Martin Gräßlin 2011-04-28 19:37:02 -------
The decoration has also to support the AbilityUsesAlphaChannel to get blur
behind the decoration. I just added it to the source code and everything get's
nicely blurred.

 Not compiling on Sabayon 5.5

 
 by TheStarLion on: May 7 2011

Since Smaragd isn't in Sabayon's repository, I gave compiling it a go.
This is the result when running 'make'

[ 0%] Built target kwin3_smaragd_automoc
[ 6%] Building CXX object src/CMakeFiles/kwin3_smaragd.dir/kwin_smaragd.o
/home/liam/Downloads/compile/smaragd-0.0.7/src/kwin_smaragd.cpp:37:19: fatal error: cairo.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

make[1]: *** [src/CMakeFiles/kwin3_smaragd.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Is it possible to tell it to skip the Kwin3 part of it and just do 4?

Could you pastebin the contents of "CMakeCache.txt" and the location of the "cairo.h" include file?

Could you check if deleting CMakeCache.txt helps? It looks like you previously tried cmake configure without cairo-dev installed.

If this does not help, please pastebin the cairo.pc file.

No difference, though oddly I can't seem to find any file named 'cairo.pc' anywhere.

"cairo.pc" is the pkgconfig file that should be installed together with cairo-dev package. Without that file, Smaragd cannot find Cairo. Maybe your distribution just forgot to ship it.

It is possible that "FindCairo.cmake" is intended to work without the .pc file, but neither did I write it, nor is my cmake voodoo good enough to fix it. You might ask someone who knows cmake better. Sorry.

If you have a patch for "FindCairo.cmake", please add it or send it to its author.

 Doesn't work properly with KDE 4.7

 
 by Pyruzan on: Jun 25 2011
 
Score 50%

Hey skulptor,

I can't get Smaragd to work properly under new Kwin in KDE 4.7 (beta). Howsoever I adjust the Emerald theme it just doesn't matter, window title and min/max/close buttons are always on the very right side. Also the window title's been kind of fulgent, thus unclear and hard to read since KDE 4.6.

Please consider an update, Smaragd seriously needs one.

Thanks :)

> Fixed, was missing "&include_home=true". Thanks!

Skulptor, that was a little ironic. Personally, I've always thought Compiz and Emerald outshone all other window managers and decorators. And as of the later versions of KDE, Emerald was dead, at least for us KDE users, along with its hundreds and hundreds of outstanding themes. But you brought them back.

We're the ones who should be thanking you, so here: thanks man, now my desktop looks as great as it ever did!

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.
