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
--------------------------------

- Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install kwin-style-crystal
- Gentoo: emerge -a x11-themes/crystal

 Install Probs..

 
 by solus on: Aug 6 2006
 
Score 50%

Ok, I am using suse 10.1, KDE 3.5, I see written here that it should not be a problem to install this package. I find it rather lovely. Problem being, when I try to install by suse rpm I get this error message "Installing crystal-1.0.1-1.i386[Local packages]
There are no installable providers of libexpat.so.0 for crystal-1.0.1-1.i386[Local packages]"

I tried then to install it with the tar.bz2, now, this is my first day ever using a linus dist other than knoppix, so there is a distinct possibility that I am just being dense here, but that told me "tar: 13969-crystal-1.0.1.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors"

Any suggestions?

And I apologize in advance is this is an idiocy problem... Thanks...

I forgot to mention, I did look back through the historz and try both the CD and website for the libexpat file. The CD told me it was installed, the website didnt find anz matched for the file...

There is a compat-expat-something package in SuSE that provides the very file and then it should work.

 Maximise Button

 
 by islamguidedotcom on: Aug 9 2006
 
Score 50%

I think there's a bug where u can't configure the maximise button to maximise horizontally only when pressing right click. For middle click it's fine. This only occurs when the this windeco is applied. The setting involved is under Kcontrol>Window behaviour>Titilebar Actions> Maximise Button

I figure the bug is due to conflicts with similar options tweaked by the crystal windeco.

Otherwise it's a superb windeco!

Thank you for the hint. Right-click on the maximize button maximizes the window horizontally, middle click maximizes vertically. This is the default and it is working perfectly fine for me. Where do you have a problem?

But I noticed that the settings have absolutely no effect, that means you cannot set it to maximize vertically on right-click. I may fix this in the next release.

 too slow

 
 by mobtek on: Aug 9 2006
 
Score 50%

This is too slow to be really usable, looks great but everytime I change a desktop the cpu use goes through the roof while it busily redraws all the transparent window decorations.
This is on a P4 2.8 with 1gb of ram.

That's because you have "track desktop changes" activated in crystal.

The deco has to keep a modified copy of the wallpaper to be able to draw the titlebar so fast. When you change the desktop and have another wallpaper it has to regenerate the copy which takes time. :( If you don't need the "track desktop changes" option, try deactivate it.

Incorrect, track desktop changes is unticked.

I don't know what is causing the recreation of the wallpaper image in crystal. Do you have different wallpapers set? Or maybe another program handling the desktop?

The rendering of the decoration is really fast when the wallpaper is acquired.

hmm nope, same background on all desktops. I'll try compiling this again and see if that helps :) Kwin is the only thing dealing with the desktops.

Maybe this will help:

in kcontrol:
Appearance & Themes -> Window Decorations -> General -> Moving repaints window -> Check "Immediately"

 No Transparency

I installed Kubuntu 6.06 and can't get transparency enabled in the default crystal window deco.

I check the "enable transparency" checkbox in System Settings>Appearance>Window Decorations(Crystal)>Background and it has no effect. Tried rebooting and still no effect.

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.
