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

Did you extract the files from sometheme.emerald?

If not, then extract the files to ~/.emerald/theme

Works great on Kubuntu 11.10

I read in comments that blur is possible, how can this be achieved, my theme is vtunner (type).
Can it be added in theme.ini since i see that blur is part of compiz and no option for setting in emerald theme.

You need to compile Smaragd from git master to get the Blur effect working.

since KDE 4.7 hasnt anymore the kwin shadows pluggin, it's necessary to use the shadows of Smaragd. You said it's buggy but it's working quit good (so far).

They are working good unless you use the Offset values to shift the shadows. I usually like them larger at the bottom, but shifting them down results in rendering errors.

The git master of the Skulpture repository has hardcoded shadows that are shifted, but it is easier here, because the Skulpture window decoration is not transparent.

 Non-centered title text

 by TimeManx on: Jan 31 2012

The title-text is centered without taking the space occupied by the minimize/close buttons as part of the total width.
This makes the text appear a little to the left.

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.
