Description:

I got inspired by some plasmoids mockups I saw while surfing around.

The content frame is part of the windec. The borders are larger than the usually so thin and unreachable borders --Usability!-- but they don't look so.

Please note the styled menu button. The usual icon never reacts like the other buttons so I replaced it. (This is optional.)




Changelog:

0.6:

- Double click on menu button now close the window.

- On request, the windows can keep their round corners even when maximized.

- Config dialog re-worked. There's room for some more options.


0.5:

- Shaded windows are now more compact and looking better.

- The buttons glow the same way on active and inactive windows. That's also looking better.


0.4:

- KeepAbove and KeepBelow now have a different icon when activated.

- Button icons slightly changed --for the best, I hope. Old buttons are still available. (See README.)

 Nice, but..

 
 by SynTruth on: Oct 21 2005
 
Score 50%

This is a nice windec, but I think the 'shaded' view is...clunky. My suggestion would be to add an option to remove the rounded inner frame and just show the outer windec frame. Does that make sense? And an option to make smaller title bars would be nice as well, since I *prefer* mine very thin and small (and I have a 21" screen I run at 1280x1024, I just like small titlebars! Heh.)

See the Grover windec (still one of my faves) for I personally think all windecs should handle shading. :) Essentially, we don't need the bottom window frame when in shaded view.

Otherwise, great work! It's different and nice over all! :)

Yes, what you said makes sense. I've never thought anybody uses the shaded view, however there are some tricks which are activated on such occasions. I will just make them more "powerful" so that only the titlebar remains. There's no need for a special option since I think it will look better.

As for having a more compact titlebar, sorry but I'll stay firm on my position: No. As I already said before, every pixel is part of the look. One day, maybe I'll do a compact windec but that won't be Powder.

 Hint for Kubuntu

 
 by Profus on: Oct 22 2005
 
Score 50%

If you use Kubuntu Breezy and powder doesn't show up as window style in the kde settings' appearance dialog after following the installation instructions, do the following:

sudo mv /usr/local/kde/lib/kde3/kwin_powder* /usr/lib/kde/plugins/styles/

You can remove the /usr/local/kde/lib/ directory afterwards. If you don't need the powder color schemes you can even remove the whole /usr/local/kde directory.

 Once for all...

You again? ;-) (I just replied to your message in the poll section.)

Once for all: The titlebar isn't that big. A very classic windec like Plastik has a 28-pixel high titlebar while Powder uses 30 pixels.

And I promise that I won't answer any more to anyone who says that the title bar is too big. ;-)

(Don't take what I say too seriously, I just need a punching-ball after a lot of frustrations with KDE 3.5. I had to choose in between you and Profus and his heretic idea of erasing my wonderful colorschemes.) ;-)

Sorry for that. I think your windeco is really nice... and although we seem to have slightly diverging tastes concerning colours I'd rather encourage you to keep up the splendid work than suggest anyone should delete any of your work from his/her disk (gonna edit the previous post ;-) )

 doubleclick close?

I really like your windeco. Its on by default here on my installation now :)

Could you maybe add a "Doubleclick Menu icon to
close window"-option like Plastik has ?

I don't use double-click but that shouldn't be a problem to add this feature. I will cut and paste from Plastik sources. Happy GPL world! ;-)

(Long pause...)

I cut and pasted from Crystal sources --which happened to be already unzipped-- and I already added the double-click closure... but the menu appears in between the 2 clicks.

Not good!

I'll fix this "feature" for the beginning of next week. (My schedule agrees.)

Sweet, Thanks!

 Double click & more

 
 by Maxilys on: Oct 30 2005

Apparently, nobody should mind. All the windecs that I checked and that allow the double click closure "suffer" from the same problem.

I don't like that but I will provide the feature. I'll try to find a fix for a later version. My attempts have been unsuccessful so far.

If I have the time, I intend to include the mousewheel-driven window switcher too --if somebody sees what I mean.

 Maximized window

Your deco is awesome! But, there's one thing that annoys me: maximized windows do _not_ have round corners.

Perhaps this is meant as a feature, but for me this is a bug.
Could you add an option for changing this behaviour?

LOL! I did it on purpose, thinking that somebody would complain that the window doesn't fill the screen when maximized. And look what I get: Somebody complains that the corners don't remain round. :-)

(I amused by very little things...)

Any way, that's possible and very easy but I need to re-work the config dialog. The preview is already so small. I can't add another option or it will be reduces to a single line.

Well, since I got too many problems with the mousewheel, I'll give up on it and add "your" option. Now I have some more serious reasons to release a new version. ;-)

Great to see the "doubleclick close" integrated into Powder !!! :)

I've seen another feature in a windeco that allowed you to move the mouse to the farest top-right and then be able to close the window (actually hitting the regular close icon, as this was moved more top-right than currently).

I've seen this implemented in a livecd with kde 3.5beta2 announced on dot.kde.org. It might have been "Klax", but i'm not sure.
