Description:

Crystal-GL is the next generation of my crystal window decoration theme.
By using OpenGL to render itself, it simulates refraction and light mapping! Check out screenshots! NOW!

I name the deco HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL! Don't blame me, if it brakes your computer into two, if it crashes kde or makes it unusable. THIS IS BETA, NO WARRANTY.
If it breakes kwin, even on startup, remove your ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc file, to reset the kwin settings to default.

WARNING: You need to have write access to the 3D acceleration device, if exists. I.e.: /dev/dri/* or /dev/nv*. Otherwise the deco or kcontrol may crash.

It looks very similar to crystal, but has more eye-candy and smooth animations.

* Grabs your wallpaper and simulates bended glass, little lighting. You are able to specify the ior. ;)
* Support for button themes. Feel free to swamp me with cool themes. :D The themes are the same than the ones in crystal.
Knifty button theme by Enso

Disadvantages:
* Needs a working GL subsystem!!! Don't blame me, if yours is broken!
* Be careful on nvidia systems, if under load, the gl subsystem may become *real* slow, so my deco.
* Needs KDE >=3.2 and QT>=3.2 to compile.
* May be slower than any other deco
* May be fat
* May make you drool, and you might forget to eat, sleep or even breath!


-- 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 configure fails, check that you have both the Qt and KDE development headers installed. If you used a previous version before, you need to restart kde to use the upgraded version.
------------------------------------


Please give some feedback or tell me some improvement suggestions.
I would be very happy about some packages, like for Mandrake, Debian, Suse, Redhat, etc! PLEASE DON'T POST PACKAGES AS NEW CONTENT, just notify me and mail it to me, and I'll host them.

PROVIDED PACKAGES MAY NOT BE UP2DATE! Check out versions number!

Thanks to bitwit for each others help with the GL-deco stuff!

Enjoy! :)

Changelog:

* All packages up to date now

0.8.1:
* Made look antialiased caption damn good. Enabling this is RECOMMENDED now!
* Fixed menu button image bug
* Split up rendering process into four for each border. Maybe speed up or (most likely) speed down. :-/ Should fix nvidia-slowdown-bug on maximized windows.
* Added feature: "Scroll" through windows, by using the mouse wheel on the title bar, as well as an option in the configuration dialog to disable this immediately :>
* Improved config dialog a little


0.8.0:
* Added extreme slick "handpainted" button theme (thank you, Marco)
* Fixed some bugs, which almost drove me crazy on my notebook.
* Little speed up in the initialization
* Improved my "button-rendering-engine" a lot. Now button tinting uses GL, too.
* Added more options for button tinting.
* Added option to make the hover effect fade
* Added option to disable the transparency feature completely (don't dare!)
* Added information of direct rendering and glx version to the control center preview
* Got rid of some unneccessary code, probably put in a lot of more unneccessary code.
* Added a benchmark feature for my internal use (ctrl+alt+shift+RightButton on the title bar)


0.7.5:
* Added Knifty button theme (thanks to Enso)
* Fixed buttons
* Little code rearrangement, nothing visible

 X hangs w/ CrystalGL

 
 by codelib on: Jan 30 2005
 
Score 50%

First thing: this is an awesome deco. Great job. Unfortunately, I can't enjoy it because anytime I move a window towards the bottom of the desktop (about 50% of window below taskbar), X completely freezes. I have to reboot each time. I'm running the following:

Suse 9.1
KDE 3.2.1
Qt 3.3.3
Intel 855GM chipset

Any ideas?

My notebook has the same chipset and I have not experienced this behaviour for now. I am very sorry that I see myself helpless facing the freeze problems. I can't fix this on nvidia cards, too.
Thanks a lot for this bug report, but I cannot promise to find a fix.
I think it is most likely a drivers bug, and if, I cannot do anything. On the other hand, my deco seems to be the only software, that is causing problems.
AAAAHHH....
Which X do you use, and which driver? Which kernel module?

kernel 2.6.5-7.111.19-default
i830 kernel module from above

XFree86 4.3.99.902-43.28
The i810 driver w/ DRI that comes with above X version

Are their any particular logs or traces that would help?

You may email me your most recent XFree log file /var/log/) and your kernel log.
You could also try to login from another computer, and start X from there. When if crashes, there may also be some error messages.

I use the i810 driver shipped with Xorg, but the i915 kernel module. Perhaps this helps?

good stuff m8! this is one of the best window decorations i have ever seen and certainly looks far better than the tacky and overused mac osx transparencies. a little buggy (it slows considerably when firefox is up) so i will look out for later editions, but all things considered very impressive, very smooth, and very customizable!

keep it up! =)


PS Linux rocks!

sorry just wanted to add - you can see what ive done with it here:

i have noticed tho it tends to crash KDE when firefox is running or when I am switching virtual desktops, but as long as i dont overload it it is ok!

Hi - I just wanted to install your theme... but behold - I _wants_ arts with no way to disable it.
I'm on amd64 where it just doesn't work (Yeah, you can make it work, but it is still a pain in the ass ;) )
So - could you provide an option to disable arts support? Thanks

 not working

 
 by LMCBoy on: Mar 3 2005
 
Score 50%

Hello,

I'm using CrsytalGL on my home machine with no problems, and I like it a lot!

Unfortunately, I tried installing it at work as well, but it isn't working here. The titlebar and window borders do not get rendered at all, they simply take on whatever pixels exist behind them (i.e., alpha=100%). However, they also are not getting updated properly when I move the window, so I don't think it's just a transparency thing.

Home machine (crystalgl works): Gentoo amd64

Work machine (crystalgl not working): Fedora core 3 i686


I have verified that opengl is working on this machine (glxinfo shows "Direct rendering: yes" and glxgears shows 2000 fps).

Any ideas?

What kind of graphics card is in this machine? Which driver?
ich you run kwin --replace out of a terminal, you might get some error messages of kwin and my deco. Maybe this helps me find the error.

 Beautiful core

Pretty screenshots. Unfortunately I can't get it to actually work.

The gentoo ebuild is unparseable, so I went with the manual install instructions. Went smooth.

Let her rip and... well, nothing. No borders. No GL. I did get a KDE crash dialog that told me nothing, but only after I ran kwin manually.

Curious, the config screen says direct rendering not enabled. However, glxinfo begs to disagree.

xorg-x11-6.8.2
kde-3.3.2
qt-3.3.4
ati-drivers-8.10.19
Radeon 9000 Pro

Back to mundane decos for me.

What do you mean, "the gentoo ebuild is unparsable"? It works well for me, so the ebuild is alright, I think. What did you try to install it? Did you make a gentoo overlay?

And would you mind to post me all messages, that appear, when you start kwin manually from within a terminal? (kwin --replace).

And if you get a kwin traceback, post it to me, too.

Is GL working completely, does glxgears render? Are your ATI drivers working fine?

Sorry if I seemed short yesterday. It wasn't a very good day.

Anyway, I wasn't using a portage overlay. I created one and emerged it from there, and it merged fine (after I'd uninstalled the manual one of course). Worked fine. Did I mention how I hate python? Everything looks like a parsing error.

Anyway, the deco's still crashing. Nothing from the kwin output except "KCrash: Application 'kwin' crashing...". Traceback doesn't look useful since I don't have KDE emerged with USE="debug". Then again, I haven't coded C in 10 years so I've pretty much forgotten what I'm looking for. Here's what I have minus the "no debugging symbols found" warnings:

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1".

crystalgl was emerged with USE="debug".

I do have the system built with both linuxthreads and nptl, and it looks like it's using LWP. Does anyone have stories about crystalgl and nptl? I haven't seen anything else crash like this recently, so if nptl's getting in the way then crystalgl's touching something unique.

ATI driver's working great. glxgears runs at 2366 fps.

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
