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


For KDE 4.x port see:

Changelog:

1.0.7:
* Added Kubuntu button theme (thanks to Kubuntu team)
* Do not draw shadowed captions of inactive windows so it's easier to read
* Nicer defaults

1.0.6:
* Probably fixed linking of kdecore on some platforms
* Don't hide borders when in half maximized state. Fixes glitch when restoring a half maximized window.

1.0.5:

* Set default of "cycle tasks with wheel" to off
* Showing version in preview


1.0.4:
* Fixed bug of not clipping when window is not visible (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kwin-style-crystal/+bug/82870)
* Integration of kdocker: Right click on close button to run kdocker for that window to minimize it to the system tray. kdocker needs to be installed (http://kdocker.sf.net)
* Menu button is finally themeable. Added menu button images to button themes, where possible


1.0.3:
* Added option to suppress drawing of caption
* Added the two more overlays "glass" and "steel"

* You can separately define the color of the minimize and maximize button now
* Yeah, I think, it's worth the 1.0.0 now!

I get the following error message:

(Reading database ... 166400 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking crystal (from crystal_1.0.0-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing crystal_1.0.0-1_i386.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/kde3/kwin3_crystal.la', which is also in package kwin-style-crystal
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
crystal_1.0.0-1_i386.deb


Can anyone explain this?

Kubuntu already provides the crystal windeco in the kwin-style-crystal package. You cannot install my debian package and the kubuntu package the same time. The Kubuntu package is actually newer at the moment. So keep it. :)

This means you already HAVE the deco installed, since it comes with Kubuntu 6.06! It even is the default decoration, so if you still have it selected, choose the vista button style in the crystal configuration dialog.

O-ok thanks guys, I got QT confused w/ Crystal, I just needed the Vista button on the QT theam & to tweek the transparency a little, I thought you had to config this in the Command line, Not the GUI that's what was confusing, I don't use the GUI offten, but was easy,

Again, kubuntu 6.06 already has it installed as the default window deco, and it has the checkbox for transparency disabled. Open the crystal configuration dialog, move to the background tab and enable transparency. Make sure the values are configured correctly for transparency.
Or what is your problem? You don't need to restart KDE, a 'kwin --replace' is only needed, when you update the crystal package.

Sorry, you need the expat-compat package. search for expat in the SuSE package manager. SuSE 9.3 and SuSE 10.1 packages seem not to be that compatible. But then it should work.

Yes, my rpm won't work, because it is comiled under KDE 3.5, so it is not binary compatible with 3.4.

Please send me the error messages via email. I think, you miss some header files, which are in the messages. Search for the packages in Mandriva and install the package that provides the missing header files.

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.
