Description:

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.

Notes:

* 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`
make
sudo make install[/color]

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

 Installing Themes

 
 by Ace2016 on: Mar 22 2009
 
Score 50%

I'm just wondering, is it intended that packages need to be extracted to a folder named Name-theme? and then it shows up as Name-theme in the config dialogue, Most themes don't extract as name-theme so even though the install seems to go fine the theme doesn't show up

Yes, it was the intention of the original author. All sample themes he provides follow that pattern.

 Crash when using no border

Using no border with dekorator causes kwin to crash, it works worked fine with crystal.

Alt+f3 > Advanced > No Border = kwin crash

 Menu Button Space (bug?)

There is a strange space between the menu and leftTitleBg, the right side of the icon should be the same as the left:

Also when making themes should one aim to go with big png images which wouldn't require much tiling or 1px high/wide images which are tiled all the way along for best performance?

Hi, regarding tile sizes, it is the best to make them as small as possible. If performance is better with larger sizes, deKorator can pre-tile the images to its pixmap caches, but it cannot do the reverse.
Looking forward to your theme :)

 deKorator limitations

 
 by Shirakawasuna on: Apr 22 2009
 
Score 50%

Hey, here's some of the limitations I've documented which (hopefully) aren't too hard to fix.

First, though, thank you for porting dekorator to kde 4 and for your interest in improving it! It's the only way for me to easily create themes to make kde more beautiful.

1. You can't use gradients and expect them to scale. This makes many windows msstyle ports difficult because they very often use a top bar bitmap gradient that is dynamically scaled depending on the window.

On my Reluna port, a downloader pointed out one way this can make problems: with windows smaller than ~400 pixels wide, the top-left and top-right images I used to make it look smooth start to overlap and get truncated so that there's an ugly and abrupt switch between colors right in the middle of the titlebar.

2. There is no way to make maximized window decorations different from minimized ones, from what I can tell. This means that rounded window decorations have spaces in the corners when maximized and the user can't simply move their mouse to the upper right corner and click as is possible with a theme like Oxygen.

3. There's no separate active/inactive window button image options. You can have them colored in different ways by dekorator, but can't use actually different pixmaps. This makes a 1:1 port of Reluna impossible, as it does have different pixmaps for inactive windows.

If these things were fixed, I'd be able to do a *perfect* port of Reluna and would make a whoooole bunch more original work and ports. That way you know that any work you put into it would be appreciated and improve the community!

Thanks again for kde4's dekorator!

Nick

Oh, and I also like to use the svn version and noticed a couple weeks ago that clicking in window contents wouldn't change which windows had focus. It seems to be fixed now since at least svn version 956581, but you might want to keep a look out for that.

 Naming scheme

 
 by Shirakawasuna on: Apr 22 2009
 
Score 50%

Dekorator also recognizes 'buttom<whatever>' in the masks dir but not 'bottom<whatever>'. Some kind of typo thing. To avoid breaking compatibility with existing themes while adopting a reasonable naming scheme, maybe you could have it look for 'buttom' or 'bottom'? and accept 'bottom' first?

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.
