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

* First screenshot:

- Window decoration: Azenis
- Widget style: Oxygen

- Wallpaper: Air (KDE 4.2)

* Second screenshot:

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

 Version being displayed

Also if current version is 0.4.0.2 then the version printed should also be that one and not still 0.3 for consistency.

You are right that this is confusing. I just did not want to give the impression that 0.4 is better than 0.3. In fact, due to some regressions, it may be worse :)

For the next release, I will fix the version number issues. Thanks for noticing the hidden .svn directory.

Regarding packages, I already provide them for all major distributions (yes, including Mandriva :)

 Version on source directory

 
 by juancho on: May 25 2009
 
Score 50%

Why if the current version is 0.4.0.2 the source directory is still 0.3 ? that makes packaging it more problematic because of some ugly fixes to workaround that issue.

Could you please for next version rename that directory and upgrade versions accordingly to the verion being released ?

Thanks

 .svn dirs are being included

Hi,

You should remove .svn directories before doing a release, they shouldn't be included as they're of no use to your users and some times can be a lot of wasted space and bandwidth. You can use the export command form svn for that:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.ref.svn.c.export.html

Hope it helps.

 Feature Request

 
 by Shirakawasuna on: Jun 28 2009
 
Score 50%

A quick feature request for the KDE 4.3 version!

I'm currently trying to port a theme that has no borders on the left and right sides but does have beveled edges (requiring a mask). Dekorator doesn't seem to like no borders when there's a mask (haven't tried it without one) and just leaves a bunch of space on the left and right sides, w/ the beveled edges reaching over.

It would be nice to have a 'no border' option, maybe as part of the theme settings file!

Also, it seems to me like implementing a lot of these changes could possibly break backwards compatibility, have you considered forking the project? I don't mean to suggest that you do it, as you're the dev and know better how this should go, but it's an idea ;).

Oh, final thing: it might be nicer to adopt an emerald-style naming scheme + image setup, where for each button you have a single image split into six pieces (normal, hover, press, and the same for inactive windows). It would make porting/using emerald themes much easier (perhaps even automated/native!) and make improvements easier to organize, imo.

Thanks!

Make sure midLeftFrameBg.png and midRightFrameBg.png are empty, their width determines the left and right border widths. The masks should not have any effect on the window layout.

Actually this is a fork, as I do not know what the original deKorator author has planned :)

Wow, I had no idea that's how you did 0 px borders, thanks! My new feature request: make it more intuitive :).

Err, actually that doesn't quite work. The masks no longer apply if I make the leftMidFrameBg.png (and corresponding right one) empty. I get little white corners :(.

Could you retry with updated version 0.4.0.3? There was a bug that prevented deKorator to work correctly with KDE 4.3.

Alright, no borders seems to be working (even in KDE 4.2!) :).

One last issue with it: resizing is difficult with mouse-only. I can do alt + right click, but it would be nice to have an option to make the lower right hand corner more clickable (for resizing) as in the Nitrogen window decoration. As it is, I can't get any horizontal resizing unless it's a super tiny area of the top left corner.

Thanks for the awesome work, now the Dots theme will look right :).

To get the 0 px borders to 'show up', I have to either restart KDE or switch to a window style other than dekorator and then back again. Just something you might want to know :).

 icons corrupt on maximize

 
 by MrBumpy4096 on: Jul 27 2009
 
Score 50%

I'm using KDE 4.3 RC3 with the latest deKorator (0.4.0.3), and whenever I maximize or restore a window, the icons/buttons on the left side of the title bar turn into black squares. When I move my mouse over the black squares, the icons reappear. This happens with every theme I've tried.

I'm not using desktop effects. If I enable desktop effects, instead of black squares, the icons are replaced with what looks like another area of the screen. Let me know if you need more info.

I get something very similar in 4.3.0. I have desktop effects enabled, so instead of black rectangles it's just transparency (chunks missing from the decoration).

 masks and shadows

Is mask and shadows supposed to work with latest dekorator?

I did compile latest dekorator, but I have no shadows, and mask is black instead of transparent. This is on kde 4.3.

Yes, it should work.
* remove any old deKorator installations and make sure you installed 0.4.0.3 (version number is displayed inside the preview window)
* restart KWin to force it loading the new deKorator version
* enable compositing for shadows to work (it may be required to suspend and then restart compositing again)
* enable "Use Masks" in deKorator "Paths" page for masks to work

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
