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

 KDE 4.5 decoration UI integrat

 
 by TheBlackCat on: Jun 9 2010
 
Score 50%

Are you planning to integrate dekorator with the new simplified window decoration interface and GHNS system being used for 4.5? In 4.5 most themes, binary, aurorae, etc, are treated as equal, with no easy way to even tell them apart. People just see a list of pictures and pick the one they like best.

I think it would be great if dekorator supported this as well, so people just see a list of decorations and pick the one they think looks the best rather than having to download, install, and manage dekorator themes in a different way.

Not for 4.5, there is just no API to integrate other themes than Aurorae into the 4.5 theme selection dialog, Aurorae is hardcoded. KNewStuff also does not manage multiple download directories (see bug 235103).

 Blur effect

 
 by hachi on: Dec 22 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi,

KWin can transparent dekorator's decorations but it cannot blur what's behind them. Blur works for native and aurorae's decorations, just not for dekorator. So does Dekorator support blur effect and it's just some nasty bug in my instalations or dekorator actually doesn't support blur effect?

Thanks in advance for replay

deKorator supports blur with KDE 4.5.

Starting with KDE 4.6 there is new API, and decorations have to explicitly enable blur. I will update deKorator to support the new API in the future.

If you can compile from source, simply include AbilityUsesBlurBehind in the DeKoratorFactory::supports() function.

I've added 'case AbilityUsesBlurBehind:' in deKoratorclient.cc file in DeKoratorFactory::supports(). Also I had to add 'AbilityUsesBlurBehind = 3003,' in /usr/include/kdecoration.h file in enum Ability {} so GCC doesn't complain about scope declaration. Unfortunatly there is still no blur effect. Maybe I missunderstood you and did something wrong. That would be my guess:).

Just curious, which theme did you use? I don't know any deKorator themes with transparency, so you might talking about a completely different issue.

Tried to creat my own with alpha color. But also I've tried other with "Transparent Decoration Effect" that kwin provides for every decoration. None of thoose worked.

Bug reported. When it is fixed, I will add the blur property to deKorator to make it work.

To get blur working, you also need to return true for "AbilityUsesAlphaChannel".

The AbilityUsesAlphaChannel trick worked for me with deKorator-0.5.1. Thanks a lot. Would you please include it in the code?

 Top frame

 
 by seanneko on: Apr 23 2011
 
Score 50%

Is it possible to have a frame along the top, which is not part of the title bar?

If you look at my Windows 3.1 theme, it has a frame around the entire window. When the window is maximised, it should have no frame at all.

If I set Dekorator to not show frames when maximised, I still get a strip along the top of the screen, because the top frame is actually part of the title bar.

Thanks!

 deKorator broken in KDE 4.8

Unfortunately, deKorator's title bar buttons are all wonky in KDE 4.8 with desktop effects turned off. Here is the bug report:

Any hope for an update?

Keep compositing enabled, and only disable all effects that you do not want.

Is there any hope that deKorator will be updated with a fix considering the Kwin team might eventually be removing OpenGL 1.x support from the window manager? In a future KDE version, my laptop might no longer support desktop effects, and I hope I'll still be able to use deKorator at that point.

You can use XRender compositing for old hardware, I am currently also using it on my rusty i945 chip.

As for updates in deKorator and Smaragd, I am waiting until the API changes coming for future KDE versions have settled, so that I can implement shadows etc. correctly.

It was also hinted that deKorator is going to be rewritten in QML by the KWin team, so that any efforts on the C++ code would be wasted.

(And yeah, I know that instead of waiting, I should actually help contributing those changes, but my priorities are elsewhere, sorry.)

Thanks :) There is one problem with the patch: The background is not simply "midTitle", but could also be "leftButtons" or "rightButtons", depending on which side the button is at.

Indeed. There might be problems with some themes because of that. And another problem can be with very small in width midTitle images. I should have used drawTiledPixmap instead of drawPixmap to avoid that.

But in fact I tested this patch with ~10 themes I have installed and all of them worked fine. So even being not a universal solution, it still does the job for most cases :-)

 Broken?

I can't get this to build on Fedora 17 (64) with KDE 4.9.1, and the link to git is a dead. Is there a 0.5.1 Fedora package available anywhere? (Fedora has never held KDE4 packages for Dekorator, only the old KDE3 packages which were obsoleted by Fedora in 2008). Is Dekorator still an "active" project?

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
