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

HI,
i installed your window decoration on suse 10 with kde 3.4.2 , Crystal works fine except that the buttons on the title bar seem to be kde's oldest theme's button. Let's say it does not have the vista look . Is there anyway i can change the buttons? (close,maximize etc..) or is this the incompatibility issue you were warning about ???

Hi!
I saw a reply to the crystal window decoration. Even I am facing the problem which you faced. Could you please tell me how to correct it and get that Vista look.

Thanks in advance.

Bye!

 SuSE 10.1

In order to install this with Suse10.1 and the ATI Video drivers I had to create a link from libexpat.so.1 to libexpat.so.0 as the rpm wanted libexpat.so.0 which that ATI Video driver no longer has so I used
rpm -ivh --nodeps and it's working fine.

Just a tip for all your SuSE 10.1 users that have ATI cards.

This has nothing to do with the ATI drivers. The libexpat.so.1 is provided by the expat or libexpat package. The libexpat.so.0 is provided by a package named expat-compat or libexpat-compat or something like that.

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
