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

I compiled the deco against KDE 3.4 with newer libs and created the debian package with that. Seems that my package is not backwards compatible.

Please download the source code and compile it yourself. You need the appropriate devel packages for that. Sorry man. I can't provide packages for every distro. :(

I have a changing desktop wallpaper (one each 60 minutes or so), and each time it changes, windows are frozen while - I guess - the window decoration is calculating its new stuff...

Is there a way to have a cache of previous backgroud pictures and window decoration parameters to avoïd that ?

Cheers

Sorry, what am I supposed to do? Crystal tracks wallpaper changes, and it is good so. I see no reason, why to disable that. When the wallpaper changes, crystal has to re-grab it, and to apply the image effect on it. That takes some time and makes the deco "freeze". I cannot pre-grab the wallpapers and I won't cache them, because I even don't know the wallpaper. I get it from KDE, and it maybe not even be a 'file'. So I can do nothing about that. :-/ And I see no reason, why I should.

Errr... well, I don't ask for disabling background grabbing or for pre-caching, I understand this is KDE that gives the wallpaper to the decoration :)

I was just wondering, if it could be possible to have caching yes, but I have one reason for that :when you're changing from desktop 1 to desktop 2 in KDE for example, even if you have the same wallpaper (or whatever) your windows will freeze - this means that you can't quickly switch between your N desktops because it takes 2 or 3 seconds to compute the new decoration :(

If it could be possible to "cache" (using an unique ID for each wallpaper or whatever) what KDE gives (a QImage, is it ?) , then this could avoïd rebuilding the decoration when indeed it's not needed... see what I mean ?

Cheers

Oh yeah, that makes totally sense to me. And it is possible to implement, so I may think of this feature for the next release, but I cannot promise it. It surely would take a lot of RAM and it still would be slow the first time, it has to cache those images.

Is there a way to change the settings? Or a way to disable it temporarily?
