Window Decoration native KDE 4

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:

* Second screenshot:

Erstmal vielen Dank für das schönste Kwin -Style, im Gengenstaz zu Oxygen wirkt es richtig edel.

Es gibt für Kubuntu ein ppa für welchen es ein Version (0.4) gibt die bereits Fenstergruppierung hat

Im Todo von 0.5.1. habe ich gelesen das es geplant ist, wie haben die den bei 0.4 die Gruppierung intigriert?
Kann man es bei 0.5.1 beim Kompilieren experemetell intigrieren?

P.S. sorry das ich auf deutsch frage, mein englisch ist miserabel.

This is awesome, thanks for the hard work and responding to requests! I'm going to fix up my old themes and make a bunch of new ones!

 Mac OS X Menu

Any chance you can add XBar Support? I'm dying for a simple theme with Mac OS X like Menu Bar support in KDE 4.

Hey, I just noticed that changing themes within the interface (i.e. selecting a new theme) doesn't trigger the 'something changed!' monitor in KDE. This means that in order to change themes, one has to cycle through to something like Oxygen first, then back to DeKorator, then select the theme and hit 'apply'.

This might just be me or a bug just for KDE 4.4.

 One more thing!

I was trying to tweak the reluna theme to be 1:1 (hopiong the new stuff would fix it), and just rediscovered an issue.

The theme uses an image with a darker blue-lighter blue horizontal gradient. To port it, I copied the exact titlebar background corners over - those are fine. I then copied the majority of the gradient to the button background image file, then a 1px wide to the left-mid titlebar position, another to the center, and another to the right-mid position, and so on.

The result is that the moment the buttons end (which varies between users due to their different preferences), the 'left-mid' title background starts, causing an abrupt shift (not so pretty). My workaround for this was to make the button background 1 px wide, but this results in a somewhat-visible constant to gradient shift once the title switches from the button background to the left-mid title background. Ideally, one could go from right to left from a source theme image, place them in order as title background files, and have them show up in full, rather than being clipped when the buttons end.

Does making the button background images 0 pixels wide (i.e. empty files) help? In this case, only the left/mid/rightTitleBg should be used.

 Deb for Kubuntu

I just love deKorator! :)

I made a deb of 0.5.1 for Kubuntu, tested on 9.10 and 10.04, but it'll probably work on older versions and Debian too.

I think it will not work on Debian, because of different KDE paths. At least that was the situation when I last tried to make an Debian package work on Kubuntu...

But thanks for the package anyway!

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.
