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

openSUSE is still on 2.0.5... :(

On a side question: is it possible, once cmake goes on, to use checkinstall to create a rpm? There was a time when checkinstall had problems with cmake.
Cheers

In Ubuntu you need the develop files from the kdelibs5-dev and kdebase-workspace-dev packages. In OpenSuse try to install libkde4-devel and possibly some more (a package containing "kdecoration.h").

Thanks for your answer. I cannot find kdecoration.h file on any package, though.
By adding libkde4-devel cmake now goes on without errors, but make ends with a "fatal error": kdecoration.h do not exists.
I'll try to ask on a openSUSE board were that file is.
Thanks again

For the record: kdebase4-workspace-devel is the package. Now crystal compiled without problems

>> On a side question: is it possible, once cmake goes on, to use checkinstall to create a rpm?

I answer to myself: yes, it is possible. As far as I can see, the only problem with checkinstall and cmake is that the former do not pick the right package info so it suggest a wrong name and version number. For example, it suggested "Build" as name instead of Crystal and "20110625" as package version instead of 2.1.0... but all that info can be changed without problems from checkintall itself (the program ask if you want to change anything). The resulting rpm (with the right info) works without problems, replacing the system rpm without conflicts.
I'm using tabs now... :)

Oh! I forgot to mention: if you want to follow that path to build the rpm, do not forget to also edit the group the rpm belongs, changing from what checkinstall suggest to "System/GUI/KDE"

 Reduced options of round corners

Questionable decision. I think, many users (and me too) like rounded top (left and right) corners, but rectangular bottom ones.

P.S. I made a little patch for myself, which makes bottom corners non-rounded again. Here is a little screenshot with differences between two situations and I think that second (with only top rounded corners) is better:

You are right. I removed the option to reduce complexity of the code a little while I had problems with the round corners with transparency. I guess I'll re-add them in the next version. :) Sorry for any inconvenience.

Good news.
So, next version will be what I want, but in the meantime, I'll use patched new version (because it have window groups support).

Thank you very much for good work. I think it's a best window decorations for notebooks (big buttons are very useful for touchpad).

 'Make' fails on Mandriva Free 2009.0, KDE 4.1

Can anyone point me in the right direction? CMake works fine on my system and generates the buildfiles without issue, but running 'make' after that throws up the following errors:

System is running on Mandriva Free 2009.0, KDE 4.1. kdebase4-workspace-devel has already been installed.

No newer kde around than 4.1? Or try to compile version 2.0.6 of the decoration, which does not yet use the window tabbing feature, introduced in newer kde releases. Maybe Mandriva ships a rpm package of the deco, and I strongly suggest to update your kde anyway.

Turns out that v2.0.6 also did not work as well. However, I found success with v2.0.1 of the theme. Many thanks for the suggestion to seek out the older versions! ;)

 Incorrect FSF Address

incorrect-fsf-address in COPYING:
The Free Software Foundation address in this file seems to be outdated or misspelled. Ask upstream to update the address, or if this is a license file,
possibly the entire file with a new copy available from the FSF.

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
