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

Works perfectly on my machine:
my machine:
Athlon XP 2000+ 1.67 GHz
GeForce FX 5200 256MB

But the titlebar font colour doesn't seem to reflect my settings. it's just black.

Swish.

 I am Confushis

I installed the source (./configure, make file) and I installed the slackware build manually. Both seem to be ok, yet they do not appear under the window decorations available when I open the control center.

I have tried to install both this (crystalgl-0.8.1) and crystal-0.9.2 nither of them show up as a selectable deco.

Please give me an idea as what to do.

If you compile from source, make sure you pass your kde directory to ./configure. For Slackware, I think, it's:

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde

I tried what you said and still it did not show up in the control center. But a little later on, I right clicked on a title bar and selected "Configure Window Behavior" and crystalGL was selectable their. Now it shows up in the control center as well.

 Backingstore problem

It doesn't work with 'backing store' enabled in the X server config. I had this problem with both Xfree86 and Xorg.

(great work anyways!)

Man, your work is FENOMENAL! I am impressed really.... Just tried it on my Gentoo system, worked "out of box" :-) Although, I used source code to compile it, I think something is wrong with your ebuild file. Just one proposal: Is it posible to use real desktop including windows and other stuff as a background for win deco, not just wallpaper?

Thank you!
I am afraid, it is not possible for now to mix composite with OpenGL, so you will probably never see the windows through in Crystal-GL.

But it is possible to do this in Crystal (non-gl), but I had no success. Maybe somewhat later, but at the moment I'm a bit out of time. :(

 ebuild problems

the ebuild is incomplete, a complete one would be awesome so I could emerge this on my system

I don't think it is incomplete, since it works fine on my machine and some others, too. Did you put the ebuild in your portage overlay and generated the digest? Are there any error messages?

currently i'm running gentoo with the latest ebuild from this site ( 0.8.1 ) and everytime i select crystal-gl from the drop down list kcontrol center crashes with the following backtrace error: ( btw i have completely disabled composite rendering even under /etc/X11/xorg.conf )

(no debugging symbols found)
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/libthread_db.so.1".

and i also have the latest 7667 nVidia drivers installed w/ renderaccel enabled as well as KDE 3.4.1 meta ebuilds... any suggestions?

RenderAccel caused big problems on my nvidia machine. Did you try with RenderAccel disabled?
This deco can cause problems too, it is far away from beeing stable. I don't give warranty and only little support, since most problems are because of strange GL driver behaviour.

nope... didn't work; even tried disabling nvagp & renderaccel, then went ( as my paranoid self often does ) back and set all those values to false... i think my monitor is about shot after restarting x as much as i did! lol ... i'm totally depressed! :'( i can't wait until it becomes ( closer? lol ) to stable. but thanks for the attempted try you've always done an awesome job at support, quick response and ( obviously ) kick-arse software! keep the good work up! =D

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
