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

option to turn the title off would be great. like in this beryl theme
http://www.kde-look.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=53179&file1=53179-1.jpg&file2=53179-2.png&file3=53179-3.jpg&name=Real+Minimal+Widgets+Style
also simple buttons from the same theme would look great with crystal.

 sometimes slow...

this really is a great window decoration!! but I wonder what influences it that on some distributions it is rather slow (with transparency turned on), and on others it's not...
on Debian and latest Kubuntu, transparency turned on gives a delay of 5 seconds if you change s.th. or switch workspaces, and on Arch Linux it's so fast, without any delay at all.

what could this be??

See if the option "track desktop changes" in the background tab active is. Uncheck it, and it won't slow down on desktop changes.
It has to regrab the wallpaper, if certain settings change. That's causing a delay from a few seconds, sometimes.

I have Kubuntu 7.04 Fiesty. It was already installed as noted by you, but how do I use it?

Not really. Themes are built into the binary module of the decoration, so to get new themes you'd need to update the decoration. You can download the sourcecode and install it manually or you can wait until Kubuntu provides an updated version of the package. So far the Kubuntu version contains all the latest themes and is almost up to date.
If you have a new button theme, feel free to send it to me so I can think of integrating it into the upstream version.

I can't believe I've overlooked this theme for so long. By FAR the most attractive window decoration my desktop has ever acquired. So many tweaks, and they're all stylish. Damn good stuff.

 Not loading

I have a problem with it. It won't load, at least that's what kcontrol says. I have no idea where to start for a solution for this one.

If the plugin is listed in kcontrol but can't load, it's probably that the precompiled binary does not match the libraries on your system. Which distribution do you use? Compiling the source would probably work, but is a lot harder.
Or you can start kcontrol from konsole, then you should see a message, what's missing. Maybe you need to install a libcompat package.

I _am_ compiling it from the sources. Using the archlinux distribution. What is worse, I tried to go back to 1.0.2, that used to compile and work fine, but now it has the same problem as 1.0.3 does.
And kcontrol says nothing at all.
