SOME REQUEST - a lot of you guy's were asking for binaries for their distros,
so please if you could build one and mail it to me i would post them ASAP, 10X:)

Hi there,

this is the deKorator kwin deco,
deKorator is based on the HOWTO: KWin Window Manager Decorations posted in here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=6332
and done by Brandybuck, 10x david:)
the man that responsible for all the art design is jon clarke AKA ArbitraryReason, and if you don't know him by now all you should do is just look at the highest rated scores of this site:)
the nice thing about deKorator it's that it loads is images from
some user defined directory(something quiet similar to what iceWM is doing ),
thats means that everything is themeable with no time and no programming knowledge is needed.
one thing to note is that if you would like to see the changes instantly when designing the tiles, you need to run "kwin --replace&".

few notes:
when installing the new version, log out and login back, or run "kwin --replace&" to load the new version.
if for some reason some options dont seem to work, remove your old kwindeKoratorrc file and let deKorator produce a new one.

i will update my site with some more documentation, samples, template-themes, and other usefull stuff for the theme makers,
so don't forget to check it out, it will be located in the "goodies" directory.

how to install new theme - there r 3 ways to install new theme I'll name them out,

1 - downlad theme tarball and extract it to $HOME/.kde/share/apps/deKorator/themes

2 - download theme tarball, go to deKorator "themes" tab push the "install new theme" push button, you'll be presented with a dialog box, enter your theme URL or just use the little push button to locate your theme on your file system.

3 - go to kde-look and search for some 0.2 deKorator theme, in the theme post right click on the download link and "copy link address", then just go to deKorator "themes" tab push the "install new theme" button and paste the link onto the address bar, deKorator will download and install it for you.

most importent after any installation type, if you'd like to use the theme you need to press on the "set theme path's" push button.

And PLEASE if you got any comment good or bad, suggestion, feature request, other tiling format idea, please feel free to shout it...

10x to eyal the project is hosted now at www.cheetux.org.il, you could also find there some theme's i've ported from 0.1 to 0.2.


*better masking, for how to use it properly look at the Bushido-Yellow-theme inside the tarball.
*new hue colorizing method, proposed by Azzali Matteo AKA mattepiu.
*if supplied transparent images deKorator will fill it with the style background color, this will allow some "powder" style windec, this idea was proposed by the autor of powder,Remi VillatelAKA Maxilys.
*support for title bar wheel mouse action as introduced in kde 3.5.1, patch supplied by Morten Johansson.
*global themes support, this feature allows rpms and debs builders to build themes packages as proposed by loki, deKorator will look for the global themes at $KDEDIR/share/apps/deKorator/themes.
*much more configureabilty when regarding to active and inactive decos and buttons.
*custom colors for buttons.
*new theme The K-style:Infinity-theme, done by Zoran Karavla, included in the tarball and shown in the screenshots.
* few other options in the config dialog.

for full changelog see file CHANGELOG within the tarball.

 Problem in Kubuntu

Hi, I'm running Kubuntu 8.04. I installed deKorator from Adept and it's version 0.3.

When I try to install a theme for dekorator with the URL, it gives me this error:

The file is not a valid deKorator theme archive.

That happens with These theme:

When I Extract it to home/.kde/apps/share/dekorator nothing happens at the dekorator list of themes.

The same happens if I Browse the file to install it. I also tryed a few other themes and I get no good results...

Any Idea?

Sorry for my BAD English

I fixed the above mentioned problem by doing:

mkdir -p ~/.kde/share/apps/deKorator/themes

After that, installing themes via the GUI worked correctly.

i have the same problem as Psyfurius does... and making the theme dir into ~/.kde/share/apps/dekorator/ does not fix this.

 Version on source directory

 by juancho on: May 25 2009
Score 50%


If the current version is why the directory in the source tarball is still 0.3 ? that makes packaging it correctly problematic because of ugly tricks to workaround that.

Could you for next release change the version in the source directory accordingly to the version that is being released ?

 KDE Window Shadow Effect

 by microngust on: Apr 23 2013
Score 50%

It's great how deKorator allows you to completely customize the KDE window decorations. Unfortunately, with KDE 4.10, it doesn't provide a way to enable the window shadow effects. Would you possibly consider enhancing it to support windows shadows? DeKorator provides such a great option for creating your own window decoration themes, but it's a shame that it hasn't been updated in a while.

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.
