deKorator is a themable window decorator for KDE SC 4.x.

You can find over 160 deKorator themes here: http://www.kde-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=21. Additionally, many KDE 3.2+ theme packages include deKorator themes.

The Copyright holder is the original author (Moty Rahamim), I ported it to KDE4, as is allowed per GPL 2+ license. For his KDE3 version, see http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/deKorator?content=31447.

Please use the "Report Bug" help menu item to report bugs and wishes for future versions.


* To install a theme, the file must be named "NAME-theme.tar.gz" and contain "deco", "buttons", and "masks" directories inside the "NAME-theme" directory. deKorator 0.5 no longer offers a "Paths" tab to set theme paths individually. If a theme does not install, please report this to the author of the theme..

* I do no longer provide binary packages, most distributions already ship deKorator. Ask them to update.

* To install from source, you need cmake, kdebase-workspace-dev, and libqimageblitz-dev (or similary named). Additionally, you must have the KDE 4 binaries in your path. Use

[color=#005000]export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/kde4/bin/
cd dekorator-0.5.1
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
sudo make install[/color]

* deKorator is developed in KDE's git repository, see https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/artwork/dekorator

* First screenshot:

- Window decoration: Azenis
- Widget style: Oxygen
- Color scheme: Obsidian coast
- Wallpaper: Air (KDE 4.2)

* Second screenshot:

- Window decoration: Aero-Glass
- Widget style: QtCurve
- Color scheme: modified to give the impression of transparence :)
- Wallpaper: Fields of Peace

* Third screenshot:

- Window decoration: Meno
- Window buttons: Clearlook
- Widget style: Plastique
- Panel theme: Atelier
- Wallpaper: Stonewall2 Pattern


See visual ChangeLog at http://kdepepo.wordpress.com/2010/04/01/improved-window-themes-with-dekorator-0-5/

* added support for separate "inactive" images
* removed "hand" cursor over buttons
* fixed resize region with small borders
* fixed possible crash in "No Border" mode
* fixed images cropped instead of scaled
* fixed shaded windows with masks
* fixed "StickyDownPress" image used instead of "StickyPress"
* fixed partial transparency on button backgrounds
* improved detection of manually installed themes

* added KNewStuff support
* added option to hide frame on maximized windows
* added previews in theme list
* simplified theme handling

Hy there!

First of all thaank you to working on this port!

But - sorry if I'm noob - it doesn't works for me :S

I recently switched to kde with the hardy release of ubuntu, and now I using intrepid with kde4. Now I compiled your port, it's appeared in the theme list of kwin. I never used deKorator before, so maybe I did something wrong, but I selected it, went to the themes tab in deKorator configuration, installed a theme, selected it in the list and pushed the apply button... And my window decorations disappeared... :( I tryed it with three themes so I don't think if the theme is the bad thing... Maybe I am... :S

So please help me! :)

You forgot one step: After selecting the theme from the list, you have to click "Apply Theme Paths". Check the Paths page if all paths for the theme are correctly applied. Only then you can click "Apply".

 buttons don't colorize

 by josvanr on: Jan 1 2009

thanx for writing deKorator! I'm trying to make an mwm/cde style window decoration. I want to have the buttons and title bar colorized in the current color scheme's colors. It seems to work fine for the title bar, window borders and button background, but the buttons themselves dont seem to colorize. 1) when I disable 'colorize buttons' the buttons appear in the color of the png file, as they should 2) when I enable 'colorize buttons' the buttons appear grey, independent of the color scheme i pick. So they don't seem to colorize, but appear in a single grey color... helpppp....

Hi Jos, you should know that I did not write deKorator, only ported it to KDE 4, but I agree that theme selection and colorization options are not really intuitive. Maybe ask in a forum, it should work the same as the KDE 3 version.

If you want your buttons always in the same color as the title background, simply make them transparent.

 Can you port blended to KDE 4?

Skulptor you are the "Port Master"! Can you port the "Blended" KDE 3.2 decoration to KDE 4, that would be great!

Thank you!

Looks like a deKorator 0.1 theme, so you need the porting script to convert it, the script is in the deKorator source archive.

 Testing it.

Hi there,

First, I love the Sculpture theme, one of the very first and best theme for my native KDE 4.

Second, I really appreciate you giving out the rpm package as I primarily use Fedora and even though I am comfortable in compiling and things, I would still prefer a pre-built binary for reasons of my own.

Thanks. Please do provide the same in future too.

I will get back after some testing. Cheers.

 How to use?

 by MrZammler on: Mar 12 2009

Thanks for this, although I didn't use it before, I'd like to try it on KDE4 since there are few native window decorations atm.

Anyway, I've installed it and it appears on system settings, but I can't for the life of me install any themes. Where should they go? Tried .kde4/... and even in .kde (my 3.5 home path), but no theme appears in the list.

Any tips? Thanks!

If theme detection does not work with a theme, you can install it manually:

1. Unpack theme to a permanent location (standard is .kde/share/apps/deKorator/themes/)
2. Go to "Paths" page in deKorator configuration
3. Pick "deco", "buttons", and "masks" directories from unpacked theme
4. Hit Apply

I will improve theme installation in a future version.

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.
