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

 kdocker support in v2.0.5

 
 by junyx on: Nov 12 2009

I really like your window decoration.
There's one thing not working for me (using Gentoo Linux): kdocker support.

I had to apply this patch to get it working again:
>>>
diff -crB crystal-2.0.5/client/crystalclient.cpp crystal-2.0.5-kdocker-patch/client/crystalclient.cpp
*** crystal-2.0.5/client/crystalclient.cpp 2009-08-13 17:23:26.000000000 +0200
--- crystal-2.0.5-kdocker-patch/client/crystalclient.cpp 2009-11-11 21:11:20.000000000 +0100
***************
*** 1565,1571 ****

*proc << "kdocker";
sprintf(param,"0x%lx",client);
! *proc << "-d" << "-w" << param;
proc->start();
} else { /* Sorry man */ }
break;
--- 1565,1571 ----

*proc << "kdocker";
sprintf(param,"0x%lx",client);
! *proc << "-w" << param;
proc->start();
} else { /* Sorry man */ }
break;
<<<

basically the "-d" switch did not work (kdocker couldn't recognize the command line).

 I can't find the crystal style

I like this window decoration very much!
I'm using Kubuntu 9.10. Both kwin-style-crystal and your crystal-2.0.5 were installed successfully, but I can't find the crystal style in "System Settings->Stytles". What shall I do, thank you!

 Kwin tabs support

Since 4.4 version, KDE will provide kwin tabs support. In 4.4beta1 only two window themes (Oxygen and TabStrip) supports this fearure.

What about supporting it in Crystal in future?

Use just "su" or change back the directory, because "su -" changes the directory you are in.

Don't replace as root. Run kwin --replace as user or relogin.

I can't find the crystal style in my Systems Settings. Crystal is installed, but it doesn't appears in the list of decorations.

How do I resolve this problem?

Good idea, makksi.

I use Slackware and I found the right package for my distribution in http://www.slackbuilds.org/.

Thanks.

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
