Theme/Style for KDE 4.0

Score 79%



Downloads:  71491
Submitted:  Jul 20 2010
Updated:  Jan 8 2013


Oxygen style and decoration with support for transparency (see screenshots).

This is an official branch of the KDE oxygen style. It is kept in sync with the official oxygen style, and adds support of full transparency on the windows.

The style and the decoration are named "Oxygen Transparent" and appear as such in KDE's system settings (in both the applications and workspace appearance pages).

A configuration helper application is included with the style that allows one to configure both the style and the decoration in the same window. It is called oxygen-transparent-settings.

The provided script, named oxygen-setup.pl is used to:

- get the sources (from git)
- configure them
- compile and install the window decoration and widget style.

important notes

1/ The style (and decoration) should work for recent enough versions of KDE4.

Different versions (branches) must be used depending on your KDE version:

- the KDE/4.8 version works with KDE/4.8 (tested), and possibly some earlier verions (not tested)

- the KDE/4.9 version works with KDE/4.9 (tested)

- the master version works with latest KDE, compiled from git. It may not work with any earlier KDE release.

New versions will be added (KDE/4.10, etc.) when the corresponding KDE4 version is out.

One can switch between branches by running the script and specifying the relevant branch:

oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.8
oxygen-setup.pl --branch KDE/4.9
oxygen-setup.pl --branch master

By default (when no branch is specified), the master branch is used.

There is a number of additional options available for the setup script. To get a list of them, type:
./oxygen-setup.pl --help

2/ Since March 4th 2011, oxygen-transparent has moved to git.

The project home page is:


You can get the sources directly using:

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/oxygen-transparent

3/ KDE development packages are needed for the compilation to succeed (see below)

Feedback highly appreciated either here on on IRC, #oxygen. (ping hpereira, or hugo)


There are automatic builds linked in the download section which have been provided by others (thanks !).

Only the first download (the script) is maintained by me, it always provide the latest svn version of the code.

Needed packages for installation/compilation

(thanks to MezzeForte for providing the list):

- gcc-c++
- git
- cmake
- kdebase-workspace-dev
- libxrender-dev
- libx11-dev

- Depending on the distribution you have the name of the packages might change a bit

- there are usually more packages needed by the packages above and installed via dependency.

For instance,

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev kdebase-workspace-dev libxrender-dev libx11-dev git

should work on recent enough Ubuntu (thanks to Antelmo for posting. See page5).


Even though oxygen-transparent is not officially part of KDE you can report bugs to https://bugs.kde.org.
You would need to select Oxygen as a product, and Style as a component.

Make sure that "Oxygen-Transparent" appears in the bug title so that it does not get confused with official oxygen bugs.

Posting bug reports at bugs.kde.org is highly recommended rather than posting comments on this page, as it makes my life much easier at bookkeeping.


- synchronized with latest oxygen
- created KDE/4.10 branch
- Warning: if you are using the "master" branch (which targets KDE/4.11), you will have conflicts with oxygen (@KDE) configuration, unless you are also using kde from git repositories
This is due to backward incompatible changes in the configuration code.

- attempt at fixing bug concerning window positionning on screen for multi-screen setup
- changes in version policy. New available branches are KDE/4.8, KDE/4.9, and master. KDE/4.10 branch will be added as soon as the corresponding KDE4 version is released. The "stable" branch has been removed.

- synchronized with oxygen (KDE/4.9)
- fixed crash at exit for virtually all KDE applications

- synchronized with oxygen
- use icon from icon theme for tab-close button
- updated install script to deal with master and stable branch

- synchronized with oxygen
- fixed compilation issues with too old versions of KDE

 Oxygen not found after install

 by soperic on: Aug 13 2010

After installation, Oxygen does not appear in the style drop-down list (it is there in the windows list but a message indicates that there was probably an error in loading the plugin).

Typing "oxygen-settings" in krunner brings up a Widget Style window which tells me it's unable to find the oxygen style and decoration configuration plugins.

Compilation went well except for these two warnings:

I confirm that the compilation went fine.
The warnings are expected and harmless.
Only 'unusual' thing I notice is the path where your files are installed:

/usr/kde/4/bin and /usr/kde/4/lib/

Probably these does not match the path where kwin (and the rest of kde, including oxygen-settings) look for pluggins,

(my installation path is more standard: /usr/lib/kde4/)

Could you double check whether:
1/ other stuff are installed in /usr/kde/4 (and not only your freshly compiled oxygen)

2/ is there things in e.g. /usr/lib/kde4 ?

Possibly if 2/ is correct you'd need to make soft links of what's in /usr/kde/4/lib in the /usr/lib/kde4

or reconfigure the source code (using cmake) to have the proper installation path

Yes, lots of stuff under /usr/kde/4.

It's like this:




having more folders under them.

/usr/lib/kde4 is completely empty.

I am using a Turkish distro called Pardus. Maybe they are using a non-standard layout, I don't know because this is the first KDE based distro I have used.


If there is anything else you want to know, please ask, and I will do my best to give you any information you need.

Well, I had rebooted after installing and before I posted about this. But now, after having to reboot again a couple of times, all is well. Oxygen appears in the style and windows dropdown selection lists and the options/preferences are there and work as they should.

Don't know why it didn't work before.

Looks great, thanks very much!

it's really really awesome, now KDE has reached perfection in design :)

Just one suggestion: it would be even nicer if qt-tooltips could also be blured :)

I just installed it, nice job !
But could you please mention somewhere what we need to compile it. It could save a lot of time for newbie like me.
I installed (maybe too much) :
- gcc
- subversion
- build-essential
- cmake
- kdevelop
- kdelibs5-dev
- kdebase-workspace-dev
- libxrender-dev
- libx11-dev

thanks for the list.
Most likely: kdevelop is not needed (totally unrelated).

The rest should be enough though.
I'll add it to the comments.
