Smooth Blend - a smooth blending of the window background color into the titlebar.

This is my first attempt at a KDE window decoration.
Any comments would be much appreciated and can be posted here or sent to my email.

For anyone installing over the beta or 1.0 that used the rpm, be sure to remove the old one first:

rpm -e smoothblend-beta2
rpm -e smoothblend-1.0

If you get errors about an unknown signature when installing the new rpm, the rpm is signed by Scott Grayban and you should follow the directions on his rpm site to add his key http://rpm.borgnet.us/10.1/ or rpm -iUvh --nosignature smooth-blend-1.1-1bgn.i586.rpm.

If you have his key, the normal install is:
rpm -iUvh smooth-blend-1.1-1bgn.i586.rpm

For both the tarball or rpm version, you need to issue this command after you install:
kwin --replace &
or simply logout and back into kde.

spasemunkie: for his buttons
bitwit: for his kwin_template
David Johnson: for his example kwin tutorial
thomas12777: for answering questions on getting pixmap buttons into code

Thanks to sgrayban for testing and hosting the file download.


1.2 release

Added Yoper version 2.2.0-6 RPM.

Fixed button animations when moving the mouse off a button and the mouse button is pressed.

Currently it can be checked out in kde svn under trunk/playground/artwork/smooth-blend/

(Mandrake 10.2 RPM)
(Yoper 2.2.0-6 i686 RPM)

On FC4 you can always erase the lines on the configure script that check for the blacklisted compilers.

It worked for me.

I'll make that change for the next release. I have about two more things I need to fix before I call this finished.

I like this win deco, but you should add one pixel above the button as active part of the button so you could clic maximized window buttons when mouse is in the screen edge.
Things in upper screen edge = infinite height; things in corners = infinite area. More area = easier to click.
It's a basic usability principle, that's why a lot of mac users hate win style menus: those are not at the edge of screen.

Although it isn't fixed in the download posted here on kdelook, this should be possible in the 3.5 alpha. Just make sure that you check the box located here: Control Center->Desktop->Window Behavior->Moving->Allow moving and resizing of maximized windows

cheers, -p0z3r

Hi... i like so much this theme and i use it in my Gentoo Linux. Thanks for made this work!!

I would like change the background colors in buttons and to select between gradient or solid fill. For example, if a have a title bar red, i would like have a yellow background button with gradient to orange. Or if i want a very high contrast only in buttons, i can use title black with button color white, fill solid.

Very nice, like this its now my permanent work theme.

Does anyone else get:

QMetaObject::findSignal:smoothblend::smoothblendClient: Conflict with KDecoration::keepBelowChanged(bool)

in their xsession log? I am using Mandrake 10.2

Those signals are different between kde 3.1 and 3.2+. It is a warning and should be safely ignored for now.

There is a bug when using xcomposite and the smooth-blend deco, see:

I switched to plastic in the meantime, but I would really like to use smooth blend again.
