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


Crystal in common distributions:
- Kubuntu: Crystal is the default decoration since 6.06
- Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install kwin-style-crystal
- Gentoo: emerge -a x11-themes/crystal
- Fedora: yum install crystal
- Debian: apt-get install kwin-style-crystal
- openSUSE: install from repository http://software.opensuse.org/download/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_10.2
- FreeBSD: Port x11-themes/kde-windeco-crystal
- Mandriva: urpmi kwin-style-crystal


For KDE 4.x port see:

This is the "original", isn't it? I'm unable to make the buttons shine like that, because I cannot draw outside my widgets/windows. It's possible for MS, because their desktop is completely DirectX.

No, this isn't orginal Vista theme. That effect is in WindowBlinds 5. ...

Maybe you can make that trick to make place for shine/glow effect :

i already thought about that.
1. render all without windowdeco and save the pic into a buffer
2. add blur, etc.
3. draw it.

problem exists in 1, how to render without windeco and then how to save the buffer as fast as in windows vista

 Fake frost effect

I think a nice feature to add would be to use a different background other than the desktop.

I don't use crystal's transparency, as KDE allows me to make the windeco transparent with composite, but if I could use a frosty noise pattern as the background for crystal, the combination of composite and crystal's blending would be a very nice effect.

Obviously, I could just set the desktop to the pattern, but it wouldn't make a very nice background :)

ok, I will think about that. But with all that features it may be time to split this project up into "pseudo-transparency", "no transparency", "composite transparency", or whatever.
Maybe I'll make it with real composite support, not the one of kwin, then it would look nicer, I'd make the title bar text non transparent. But I have no idea, if I can make it. But it is planned.

I've seen terminals with composite backgrounds and opaque text, so it is possible at least. I think they had to draw the text twice, or have 2 drawing stages for it to work though.

Another use for my suggestion for pseudo-transparency is that users could have custom effects through the borders - like plastic wrap or mosiac in addition to the existing brighten, intensify etc.

If you do split off a composite version, I'd be happy to beta test (as well as, I think, everyone else! :))

These are terminals, like aterm, Eterm or konsole. They all can be set up to be translucent.

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

That's the command, notice the `-Backticks.
