Description:

This is the port of the famous Crystal kwin decoration theme to KDE 4.x.

For 3.x version see:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Crystal?content=13969


Main features:
* Uses compositing features of KDE4 for transparency with ability to use the blur plugin
* Supports grouping/tabbing of windows
* Ability to choose the blending colors of buttons as well as title bar and border size
* 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 for the caption
* Right click on close button can run kdocker, if installed, to minimize the application to the system tray



-- INSTALL ---------------------
Basic Installation (from the console):
- Step 1 (as user)
$ cd build
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
$ make
- Step 3 (as root)
# make install

If you installed crystal while it was running, you would need to restart kwin for the changes to take effect: kwin --replace
--------------------------------

Feedback and patches well appreciated. ;-)

This version of crystal needs KDE 4.9 or higher!



Have fun,
Sascha Hlusiak

 an annoying bug in Crystal

 
 by yaoziyuan on: Jan 11 2009
 
Score 50%

how to reproduce this bug:

1. middle-click a window's Maximize button to make it vertically maximized;

2. click its Maximize button to make it fully maximized;

3. click its Maximize button again to restore it to vertically maximized;

4. click its Minimize button to minimize it;

5. click its taskbar button to restore it to vertically maximized.

Now you can see the window's bottom has a hollowed rectangle about 2~3 pixels high.

note that in the beginning the window should be neither vertically maximized nor horizontally maximized; none of its four edges should not reach the screen edge.

to reproduce another symmetric bug:

1. right-click a non-maximized window's Maximize button to make it horizontally maximized;

2. click its Maximize button to make it fully maximized;

3. click its Maximize button again to restore it to horizontally maximized;

4. click its Minimize button to minimize it;

5. click its taskbar button to restore it to horizontally maximized.

Now you can see the window's right edge has a hollowed rectangle about 2~3 pixels width.

inactive title bar text shadow makes the title text too fuzzy and ugly. i suggest disabling inactive title text shadow.

 Overlay

hi, I personnaly use Crystal as my default window decoration since KDE 3.5. I really love it since this time and was happy to learn you've ported it to KDE 4.

In my Mandriva 2009.0 It is awesome. :)


I have just a little request. Would it be possible to have larger pictures as overlay? It could be awesome having 1200x 64 pictures as overlay cause it would allow having more design possibilities.

Thanks a lot for your work. :)

Keep it up.

It's already done and just waiting for me to release it. :-D Meaning, the next release will have more possibilities there. But please hold on a bit...

Awesome. \o/ I'll wait as much time as you need in order to release it.

If you want me to draw some big overlays, just tell me. By the way, I'll release some overlays as soon as you'll release new version. :)

Thank you very much for your work. :)

Sure, but could you send me the overlays first instead of creating a different package? I might just ship them with the official package.

Im using Linux Kubuntu from last year but only in graphic mode, there isnt a way to install this from right click on desktop or from Sys Setting? or Adept?
I atetmpetd to install sometomes programs with console but always ended up using Adept as I dont know how to do it. This is the big handicap for exWindows users like me.
I tried to follow instructions here installing from console but I get a bash error at first instruction !
I search for help for newbies here or a tutorial but I dont find anything so I registered and post here. Can anybody tell me what to do?

Woa how fast ! The lik you gave Is the same made for you? When you say Kwin is for that works only in KWIn with proprietary graphic drivers?
As I get many crahses in previous versions of KDE 4 when enabling prop drivers and effects (Id to reinstall 4 times!) now I dont instaled them and I work with more stable public drivers that comes with Kubuntu 8.10 (its name like that?) so I don t know if this work for that drivers.

I copied the name of the theme and pasted on Adept and installed from there, I found more easy as I dont know/want how instaling from console.

It works! And is beautiful but I expected the X button was colored in red as in Vista/XP, its more easy to find aftwerwards. I try to color it with Sist Setttings but the result was ugly as loose its reflection and losse beauty.

I saw a video o Desktop effects with a similar theme with the X red colored. Is the same or another?

In openSUSE 11.1 64 bits with kde 4.1.3 I get the following error:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:84 (MESSAGE):

You need to install KDE headers. Install package "kdebase4-workspace-devel".

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.
