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

Thanks, but the whole power of a Fedora-Forum wasn't able to cope with this compiler problem...I'm done with that.

I'll look for another way to use it!

So long.

 amd64 DEB

I've created a deb for amd64 users.

If you care to add it, it's located here:

http://www.cheeseburgerman.be/linux/packages/kwin-crystal_1.0-1_amd64.deb

If not, I'll just create a separate entry for it. :P

It is not my duty or that of kde-look.org, to provide packages for every distribution. I have packages for the most important distributions, but of course I cannot care for all. It should be Debian that has it for 64 bit packages.
If you want to add a new entry, feel free to, but I don't like it either, because it's just not what kde-look is meant to be for.

I never said it was your duty to provide them. I'm not asking you to make one at all, I'm asking if you want to add the one that I already made to your list of download options.

I, as an amd64 user, have been very annoyed that there are almost ALWAYS i386 packages, and never amd64 packages. I'm not sure why you don't want to add it here. I'd rather you did so there aren't as many entries for the same decoration. I'm only asking you to edit the post and put my deb in the download list. That probably requires less work than posting your reply. :)

You yourself said " Thank you very much for makeing a package for my crystal decoration.

But:

# I'd rather see it in the download list of my content, instead of having another content on kde-look.org. I can host the packages.
..."

when someone made package for Fedora (which you pointed out as being the same as your Mandriva one - a point which I'm not going to argue)

I'm doing the same thing that he did, and you said yourself that you'd rather put it in the download list than have a separate entry. I personally would too, hence my post.



My offer still stands if you care to reconsider.

P.S. Sorry if I seem a bit harsh, I just don't understand your logic. If you don't accept, there will be no hard feelings. :)

Yes, you are absolutely right about all that. What I don't like:

  • To list hundrets of packages here, though making myself a bit responsible for keeping them up to date. I don't want to list outdated packages here, nor want to run after more current ones from their packagers.

  • Except for the Slackware package I create the packages myself, so they are never outdated

  • There are a hundred of distros out there, most for x86 as well as for amd64, sparc, etc...
    Isn't it more suiteable that users compile themself, if they don't use a mainstream distro, than to list thousands of packages here?

  • I think, I have covered 99% of all distros out there.

    The main point is just, that I don't want to list hundreds of packages for non -mainstream-distros, and having to care for them being up-to-date. As I said, this is the job of the distribution itself. Of course I'd rather see the package listet here, instead of a separate entry. But the distributions should be responsible, not me.

    I have listet your package in the list, because it really won't hurt. But I may remove it, when it is too obsolete.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I mis-interpreted your meaning in the previous comment.

    I understand more what you mean now. I agree - you shouldn't be responsible for the upkeep of the package, and if I fall behind in making a package, feel free to remove it from the list. I don't mind at all. If people still want the deb after it's outdated, they can download it straight from my site.

    Congrats, this is much better than the previous versions.
    I would still love to see an option for curved corners on the bottom of the windec instead of the current square only arrangement :)

    What distribution are you using? You should use one, that provides kde>=3.2, or it won't work well. You can't even compile the sources.

    My rpms are not built for Whitebox Linux, so I can only advise you to try to build the decoration from source. Where did you get a 0.9.7 rpm package?

     Changing hover color

    Hey, I installed crystal from the suse rpm, it's fantastic! I only have one problem - the buttons (apart from the close button) go blue when hovered, which is fine except I have a green desktop wallpaper, so I'd like to change them to a yellow-y green hover. However, when I change the hover colours in the preferences, they "mix" with the blue hover colour, and it looks awful! Before specifying a hover colour for the buttons, all the colour fields are on white (yet the buttons go blue when hovered)

    I really love this deco and hope this problem isn't too hard to solve!! Keep up the good work :D

    I don't fix this. :(
    You probably use the Vista button theme, which has already coloured buttons. I can tint the buttons in another color, but if there already is a color, it is mixed, but not replaced. It is not easily possible to change the color in software. Most button themes have whitish buttons, so I can tint them, but not the Vista theme. You'd need to create new buttons, which you can, because you can download the source.
