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
--------------------------------

Go to the colors section of kcontrol and select a whitish color for the title bar. Go back to crystal and select "fade" as the effect with an amount of about 50%. If you want choose a "blur" of 3 or 4. That's it.

 outer line

hey, i just tried to change the color of the active and inactive window border (thin line around window), but i can't. as i have the windec on non-transparent, and on the same color as the background (so it blends in with the window) i can't see the window borders now... could you make crystal show the active/inactive window border/outer line? (baghira calls this "draw comic frame")

 Overlay performance

Hello there. I just LOVE this decor!!!

I have one question. When I select the overlay, and then move windows around, I notice a considerable choppiness. With overlay disabled (Off) moving windows is smooth again.

Anyway to resolve this?

Thanks!!!

Joe

The overlay surely takes some CPU time to calculate. What speed is your CPU, and what is your setup, the height of the title bar?
On my 1 GHz machine it runs very fast with a titlebar of about 22px, too fast to notice a slowdown.

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I have an AMD X2 4400 with a GeForce 7800 GTX and with the height set to 22, its still jerky.

Its not the end of the world or anything, I was just wondering.

I love the deco :)

Thanks!!!

 modal-fixed-size win

Hi, Could it be possible to add an option to hide the buttons for modal-fixed-size windows. Further, if we can have different titlebar height for modal-fixed-size windows much better.

Could you name a window, this suits to?
Currently the minimize and maximize button are hidden, if the window cannot be minimized or maximized. But almost every window can be closed, do you want to hide the close button, too?

You are correct...All the modal windows should have widget (push buttons) like "OK", "Cancel", "Yes", "No"...etc. So we can drop Close button as well. In that instance; to make the things beautifull, we can make all 4 boaders same size. Just a thought... :-)

 Missing something?

I'm kinda new to this whole Linux thing, so bear with me.
I tried the first line in the instructions, and after a bunch of yes/no check that went by too fast for me, I got a "configure error: Can't find X includes!" message. I have no idea what this means, so, of course, I can't fix it myself. A penny for anyone's thoughts?

If you want to compile it from source, you need all the required devel packages (x11-devel, qt-devel, kde-devel). The names depend on your distro.

Which distribution are you using? If I provide a package for it, please use it, instead of compiling from source, which is much more difficult.

I'm using Debian, but that package didn't work. The option appears in my Window Decorations menu, but I have an error (which I can't remember now) that says something to the effect of "error showing preview" and "problem loading plugin", instead of the expected configuration options.
