I'm not sure that translucent blured windows are very efficient but it's quite nice :)

QtCurve supports XBar as a standard option inside the QtCurve setup. I can't remember which menu it's under but you'll find it if you look. You also must have the XBar plasmoid running.

I probably should have mentioned XBar support is on in the Dark-Translucent settings but it's easy to switch off.

i found obsidian, looks great.
about the translucent thingy.. i use Gentoo, upgraded to KDE 4.5 from the overlay to test it out but it didn't work.
I guess it's something with aurorae in gentoo, maybe it might take a while for it to be fully integrated..
what distro are you using?
how about KDE, is it from the official repositories?

anyway, you did a great work, congratulations!!
can't wait to have it working properly with gentoo!!

Thanks for the comments. Hopefully I can help you get this working.

I'm using Arch with KDE4.5 which I installed when it was in the testing repo. It should be pretty vanilla KDE but I'm not sure of that.

I have QTCurve 1.5.2, but I don't know which version started supporting transperancy.

What's actually happening on your end? Is the problem QTCurve (window) or Aurorae (border) related? Are you using compositing? With desktop effects turned off transperancy won't work as far as I know. Wish I could give you more help but I'm not familliar with Gentoo. I'd be surprised if it's a Gentoo problem though.

great theme!! looks very fine.

I have a question about the KDE's (panel) taskbar: ¿What plasmoid or plug-in are you using for it looks like OS X taskabar? (I'm not questioning about the Xbar).

Greetings.

 How to install?

I am feeling a bit stupid right now, because I can't get it to work. :-(

I'm using KDE 4.5.1 and I simply can't find the appropriate menu where I can choose to load/import the downloaded archive. Could you please give me a hand there? Thanks in advance.

No need to feel stupid because I neglected to put any instructions in.

You need to unpack the archive and place the Aurorae decoration (folder containing 6 files) in your aurorae/themes directory. Mine is: ~/kde4/share/apps/aurorae/themes/
If its in this folder properly you will be able to select it from System Settings / Workspace Appearance / Window Decoration.

The QtCurve config can be imported to QtCurve from System Settings / Application Appearance/ Style - QtCurve configure / import.

I hope that makes sense but it's late and I need sleep.

Thanks for your help! I am half way through now.

I remember in former KDE versions there was an option to choose Aurora as windows decorator. This option doesn't exist any more and that's why I couldn't figure out how to install the theme. I guess Aurora has somehow been integrated into kwin itself.

I unpacked the archive and moved the contained directory to ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes/Dark-Translucent-arorae and I imported the QtCurve config like you told me. No I'm able to to choose the theme as a "window decoration" and I can also choose it when I open the QTCurve options.

But: I still don't get any transparency on any window.

I am running KUbuntu Lucid and I installed every recent and available update and KDE 4.5.1. Is there something I missed?

Are you using any compositing? It's required for transperancy.

Otherwise the only thing I could think of was perhapps QtCurve needs to be updated, transperancy was only fairly recently supported I think. Maybe the Ubuntu repository isn't as up to date as it could be, I'm by no means certain though as I use Arch.

You could check your QtCurve version against the one hosted on kde-look.

How do I check, which version of QTCurve is installed on my system? According to "dpkg -l *qtcurve*" these packages are installed:

gtk2-engines-qtcurve 1.0.2-1ubuntu1
kde-style-qtcurve 1.0.2-1ubuntu2
kwin-style-qtcurve 1.0.2-1ubuntu2

Any way I could check more precisely?

They look like older packages, the current version of QtCurve is 1.6 (I think) but any QtCurve over 1.5 should allow transperancy.

Maybe there's a testing repository with a newer version in it?
Perhapps someone here running Ubuntu could suggest something.

I wonder if that cat a few comments back with Gentoo got it working in the end. I think they had the same issue.

sorry I meant ~/.kde4/share/apps/aurorae/

as I said it was late. It could also be under ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/

all depends on your system.

Make sure you have a recent versionn of QtCurve too. Good luck.

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
