AKDC means Advanced Kwin Decoration Client ;-)

 Lots of errors

Ok I tried installing this (as root). Firstly I had to rename luna.loT to luna.lo. Ran ./configure, then make. There was loads of warnings then half way through it ran configure again, got a little further forward before stopping on errors. Had to rename config.loT to config.lo in admin directory, ran make again and it completed ok it seems. Ran make install.

Went to look & feel in control panel and there was absolutely no sigh of the theme.

I know this is beta 3 but we cannot test it if we cannot find it.

(Im using Mandrake 10 official)

first -you need to compile
./configure --prefix=/your kde path(suse:/opt/kde3)
make install

second -this is a preview not a release(preview is intended to show what's coming for the release )

third -you only can download beta2 files

I'm having a similar problem...
After I installed the corona decoration, I checked the box that makes everything larger. A few minutes later I decided that I would prefer everything to be small, but when I clicked on 'decorations' in the control center, it crashed. I reopened the control center and clicked on 'fonts'... chaos... I now have only one virtual desktop, my taskbar has been removed from the dock along with the system tray, and I can only see the menu and client area of any window I open!

I'm using SuSE 9.1 pro, btw.

For the installation I entered:

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3
make install

For configuration:

Text Position: Center
Shadowed Text: Off
App Icon Effect: Desaturate (I think)
Decoration Size: Huge Size

Again, the symptoms of these settings are in my previous post.

dude, read at top of the page, i'm not a graphical designer, akdc is not a project to port wb decos to kde, i will not create any kind of graphic art for kde

i am a !!!!!!!c++ developers creating an advanced code engine for those who make graphic art, why???

graphics artits are not developers, so they can't do complex native decos for kwin, with akdc they just paste pixmap in a folder and akdc do all the code work for them( in rc1 you will see all tools needed for graphical designer and documentation )

so but why you are use wb decos anyway???

wb is a very complex(not efficient anyway) engine that let you do almost anything with your skins, so this is a good example to me and show what is needed for graphical artists(wb have a lot experience in this sector you know!) in other hand i need show to people what can they do with akdc and this look good(remember i will not loose my time trying to make art when akdc be ready artist people can do nice art !!!not me!!!)

to finish, if you don't like any akdc decos you have two choices

1. Don't use it
2. Make a nice art, send this art to me and in few days you can see your theme here in kde-look.org

could you _please_ redesign the window decoration dialog, it doesn't fit on my screen with all those options shown at once, you should use submenus (advanced options... or something)
I'd really appreaciate that :)

Ugly MS themes. What's he talking about ? No harm to anyone but the best looking themes/skins are for Windows and the more we can hve ported across through the likes of AKDC the better
