Description:

Crystal is a kwin window decoration theme, which offers you (pseudo) TRANSPARENT titlebar, buttons and borders. Check out my screenshots! It also has some little usuability enhancements.


Main features:
* The style grabs your wallpaper and uses it as the deco background. It has several blending modes, i.e. it can fade the background into the defined title bar color, or it can brighten or darken the wallpaper, as well as blur the source image to simulate glass.
* Choose the blending color of the buttons.
* You can define the title bar height and border size of the windows.
* Right click on minimize button toggles shade mode.
* Middle click on minimize button sends window to below.
* Double click on program symbol closes window.
* Support for button themes. Basic button theme is included, feel free to swamp me with cool themes.
* Can show a tooltip of the caption
* Mouse-wheel on the title bar to 'scroll' to all opened windows of the same desktop.
* If kdocker is installed (http://kdocker.sf.net), right click on close button will send the window to the systemtray.


Disadvantages:
- Crystal needs KDE >=3.2 and QT>=3.2.
- May be very slow and memory consuming
- Don't forget to breathe, while drooling.


-- INSTALL ---------------------
Basic Installation (from the console):
- Step 1
$ ./configure
OR: $ ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
- Step 2
$ make
- Step 3 (as root)
# make install

If you installed crystal while it was running, you need to restart kwin to use the updated version: kwin --replace
--------------------------------


Crystal in common distributions:
- Kubuntu: Crystal is the default decoration since 6.06
- Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install kwin-style-crystal
- Gentoo: emerge -a x11-themes/crystal
- Fedora: yum install crystal
- Debian: apt-get install kwin-style-crystal
- openSUSE: install from repository http://software.opensuse.org/download/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_10.2
- FreeBSD: Port x11-themes/kde-windeco-crystal
- Mandriva: urpmi kwin-style-crystal

 SuSE x86_64 fails

Hi,

Just tried to compile for SuSE 10 (x86_64) and got a load of errors. I followed the instructions for configure (which worked), but make bombs out. What information do you need to see what's wrong?

Cheers, Jon.

Please mail me the complete output of ./configure and make then.
But I have absolutely no experience with 64 bit systems, so I am not sure, if I can help. I just know, there was someone, that compiled it on 64 bit, so it may work.

Hi,

dralgebra suggested that I see whether the KDE devel files were installed. In the end I just took a SuSE guru precompiled version - which works a treat.

The SuSE rpm supplied on these pages definitely didn't work for me.

Cheers, Jon

 Extensions + Style

Very nice window decoration!
1. Can you make another one using the xorg extensions?
2. Can you make a theme?

1) As far as I know, it is not possible at the moment, for a kwin plugin to make excessive use of COMPOSITE. Maybe with Qt 4.
2) I don't want to, I don't think, it would be very useful. And with better composite or XGl support, there would be no need.

 missing file?

Downloaded and tried to install source package on FreeBSD 6, KDE 3.5.1. configure went fine, however, make returned a bunch of errors, the top-most being "crystalconfig.cc:33:26: configdialog.h: No such file or directory" Suggestions?

The file should be auto-created by 'uic' (part of Qt) during the make process, it is not part of the source package.

When I run make, the command that creates the file is:
/usr/qt/3/bin/uic -L /usr/kde/3.5/lib/kde3/plugins/designer -nounload ./configdialog.ui | /usr/bin/perl -pi -e "s,public QWizard,public KWizard,g; s,#include ,#include ,g" >> configdialog.h.

Maybe you could try to run make -f Makefile.cvs to rerun the autotools. I had never such a problem on a Linux box, and I don't know FreeBSD enough to help you here. :-S

redoing the automake didn't work. I instead just did "make configdialog.h" which worked fine until I came across this error:

/usr/local/bin/bash ../../libtool --silent --tag=CXX --mode=link g++ -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall -W -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -O2 -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -fno-common -DQT_PLUGIN -o kwin_crystal_config.la -rpath /usr/local/lib/kde3 -module -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -avoid-version -module -no-undefined -R /usr/local/lib -R /usr/local/lib -R /usr/X11R6/lib -R /usr/X11R6/lib -lkio crystalconfig.lo configdialog.lo infodialog.lo -lkdeui
libtool: link: cannot find the library `'
*** Error code 1

Help?

P.S. For future reference of FreeBSD users, autotools is in /usr/local/gnu-autotools/bin

Crystal-0.9.2 is in the FreeBSD Ports, and they have two little patches in their Makefile.

Maybe you can change the /usr/ports/x11-themes/crystal/Makefile file to use 0.9.9 instead of 0.9.2 (and correct the md5sums in the distinfo file too)?

Maybe just adding a -lpthreads to the compiler works? I will try to make it on a FreeBSD machine, soon.

I can reproduce the first error on my FreeBSD machine, a make configdialog.h infodialog.h fixes it.
It's odd, but after a make clean && make this error is gone!?
I can't reproduce the linking error, mine compiles, links and runs fine. :-|
I have FreeBSD 6 and KDE 3.4. Which version of KDE do you use?

I decided to use the ports version, even though it's a version back. It works. I tried to overlay the makefile info onto the 0.9.9 sources, but it didn't work. Oh well. At least I got a version of this to work.

Would you mind to try the crystal-0.9.9b sources, and mail me the complete output of `make` as well as the config.log file in the source directory?
It compiles cleanly in my FreeBSD 6 installation.

 Engraved Inline

Any change that the inlines could become an engraved (lowered) effect? In that case it would fit much better around beveled menu and toolbars in the window.


I blog, therefore I am.

First:
    THX a lot
, this is an awesome windeco !!

Second: I have one small problem. Every thing works nice&clean but when I open window on one desktop and transfer it to another window it "remembers" old desktop background. Its bad because it looks ugly.

So thats Y I changed system settinng back to my old plastic windeco. Thats poor 'cause when I have one desktop only ( not able to work fast :) ) theres no problem

Did you check "track desktop changes" in the background tab? It should do the requested, but is only recommended if you really need it, if you have different wallpapers on your workspaces.

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.
