Description:

Crystal is a kwin window decoration theme, which offers you (pseudo) TRANSPARENT titlebar, buttons and borders. Check out my screenshots! It also has some little usuability enhancements.


Main features:
* The style grabs your wallpaper and uses it as the deco background. It has several blending modes, i.e. it can fade the background into the defined title bar color, or it can brighten or darken the wallpaper, as well as blur the source image to simulate glass.
* Choose the blending color of the buttons.
* You can define the title bar height and border size of the windows.
* Right click on minimize button toggles shade mode.
* Middle click on minimize button sends window to below.
* Double click on program symbol closes window.
* Support for button themes. Basic button theme is included, feel free to swamp me with cool themes.
* Can show a tooltip of the caption
* Mouse-wheel on the title bar to 'scroll' to all opened windows of the same desktop.
* If kdocker is installed (http://kdocker.sf.net), right click on close button will send the window to the systemtray.


Disadvantages:
- Crystal needs KDE >=3.2 and QT>=3.2.
- May be very slow and memory consuming
- Don't forget to breathe, while drooling.


-- INSTALL ---------------------
Basic Installation (from the console):
- Step 1
$ ./configure
OR: $ ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
- Step 2
$ make
- Step 3 (as root)
# make install

If you installed crystal while it was running, you need to restart kwin to use the updated version: kwin --replace
--------------------------------

- Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install kwin-style-crystal

Yeah, please try to compile it from source. It's too much for me, to crete 64bit packages for each distro, too. Maybe the Debian Team includes it in their package tree, some day.

 Windows Border Bug

 
 by Yaba on: Dec 8 2005
 
Score 50%

When you set the oppacity to 100 the titlebar is OK, but the border is 100% transparent.

This did not occur with 0.9.2.

Anyway... I like the inlay frame very much.

Wow, thanks a lot. I never noticed this bug, because I never used it. ;) In 0.9.2 this should have happened, too, it will be fixed in my next release!

 Backround

Why don't you try to take screenshot of the windows behind current one to be able to show it behind the titlebars.

It's technically not possible, without COMPOSITE. It was not possible befoe, and I didn't try it with KDE 3.5. But in 3.5 you can give the titlebar a different amount of transparency than the window, so you archive the effect.
But for now it is not possible for me, to enable it in my deco. Needs a lot of research.

take a look at kxdocker
it takes background screenshot and render directly on it, maybe it's possible to do it that way?

Nope, sorry. kxdocker makes a screenshot first, then draws this screenshot onto it's window and renders on it. So an animated window is not updated, if covered by kxdocker. I'd need to make a lot of screenshots to make it look good, and the performance would suffer a lot. It's not possible to get "real" transparency with this technique.

I'll use pseudo transparency, because it is very performant, and maybe I'll use the COMPOSITE extension, because it would look great with it and have a decent performance. But at the moment I am not able to implement this idea.

well, you don't need to take a lot of screenshots, just once every 10 seconds for example, because you are never moving inactive windows, and the background will be static (except for animations...etc).

No, it's not that easy, I can't take screenshots from windows below mine. So how am I supposed to show the real transparency, when I'm moving the window down? And you can't move a window below kxdocker either, this technique does only work for static windows.
