Window Decoration native KDE 3.2 +

Submitted:  Dec 9 2007
Updated:  Jul 21 2008


Because Compiz and Beryl didn't run very stable on my desktop, I tried
to create a Window-Decoration that looks good to me and is easy to install.

The download-file contains 2 folders with 2 images. One for titlebar-heigt 24 px and one for 28 px.

e.g. title28px:
-> titlebar_active28.png
A semitransparent bitmap which gives your chosen window-decoration-color a glossy style.

-> titlebar_inactive28.png
A non-transparent grey bitmap

*** HOW TO SETUP ***

- Open KDE-Controlcenter (ALT+F2: kcontrol)/ Appearance & Themes / Colors
- Choose a dark color for the Active window (black or darkblue looks very well)
- Open KDE-Controlcenter / Appearance & Themes / Window-Decorations
- Choose Crystal as Style (if you don't have it, you can get it here: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=13969).
SUSE-Users can get the package here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Community/YOURDISTRIBUTION

- Set the style as follows:

- Title Alignment: centered
- Use shadowed text: unchecked
- Round Corners: check all
- Border width: 5 px
- Titlebar heigt: 24 px, 28 px or 32 px (This is necessary for optimal & sharp results. For resolutions lower than 1280x1024 px, I recommend 24 px)

- "Vista" (or "Kubuntu Edgy/Feisty")

- Enable Transparency: no
- Active: No outline / No inline
- Inactive: Simple outline (#BBBBBB) / No inline

Overlay: Choose "Custom" here and the path to the downloaded & unzipped images, dependet on your chosen titlebar-height.

- Open KDE-Controlcenter / Appearance & Themes / Fonts
- Set Verdana, 10, Bold for Window title
- Open KDE-Controlcenter / Appearance & Themes / Colors
- Select "Active Title Text" (by klicking it)
- Set #FFFFFF as color
- Select "Inactive Title Text" (by klicking it)
- Set #CCCCCC as color

That's it!

This style looks very nice with a transparent & dark coloured taskbar :-)

UPDATE 2008/01/04:

I have added a black taskbar image that fits nice to the dark&glossy style (see 3rd screenshot).

- Open KDE-Controlcenter / Desktop / Panels / Appearance
- Panel Background: tick "Enable background image"
- Enter the path to taskbar.png

Have fun!!!
