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)

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

 Odd Wallpaper

 
 by angrykeyboarder on: Oct 1 2006
 
Score 50%

Unlike most Linux users, I don't make a habit of bashing Microsoft. In fact at the time of this writing, I'm also running Vista RC1.

But I can't help but find it odd that you have a wallpaper on your KDE desktop that says "Windows Vista".

I suspect it's because he's showing off the Vista-style buttons ;)

I'd imagine so. But it's still odd. :-)

Hi a amassing window decorator... I like the ubuntu edgy butons.
I have make the inactive window black and the active "simple lighting" and it's really good looking.

 Button spacing

I am using the vista button theme and wonder why there is a spacing of about 4 pixel between the close and the maximize button.

Because it is setted up like this. You can remove the button spacing in the window decorations window in the buttons tab, where you can add, remove or reorder the buttons of the titlebar.

Thanks! I didn't know that it is possible to add spacers manually.

Hi,

Just wondering where you got the transparent PNG overlay from for the "Vista Aero" effect?

That's no overlay at all, just transparency with some "background blur".

I've tried lots of different combinations but can't seem to replicate the effect.

What settings do you use to get this?

Don't know anymore, I've set up this only for demonstration.
Deactivate overlay, use white color for the title bars, set fade to 40% and blur to 2 or 3. Should give a similar effect...
