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

kdecore was added, that's good. But also you need to link kwin3_crystal.la against -lDCOP -lkdefx.

I'm using your theme for about ~3(?) years now, and i just wanna tell you that
this windows decoration + Qtcurve theme is still an unbeaten combo.

Hi.
first of all:
this windeco is really great.

Now the question:
On the third screenshot, there's a tool on the right site of your desktop. Something like a system monitor.
Whats the name of this app and where can I get it?

Thanks

kind regards,
Sebastian

For any Gentoo users, the x11-themes/crystal ebuild in the main Portage tree is still at version 1.0.2. I maintain an ebuild for the current version in my overlay which can be found at:

 New button theme...

Hi and thanks for this beautiful and highly customizable decoration. I was wondering how I can include my own button theme. I already have the png files, I put them in the pics folder, I change the two makefiles in the pics directory to include my theme but when I install it, I do not see my theme listed in the buttons configurations. Can you please give me some guidelines on what I need to change to include my button theme? Thanks in advance.

Btw, I am interested in this theme:
