Description:

deKorator is a themable window decorator for KDE SC 4.x.

You can find over 160 deKorator themes here: http://www.kde-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=21. Additionally, many KDE 3.2+ theme packages include deKorator themes.

The Copyright holder is the original author (Moty Rahamim), I ported it to KDE4, as is allowed per GPL 2+ license. For his KDE3 version, see http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/deKorator?content=31447.

Please use the "Report Bug" help menu item to report bugs and wishes for future versions.

Notes:

* To install a theme, the file must be named "NAME-theme.tar.gz" and contain "deco", "buttons", and "masks" directories inside the "NAME-theme" directory. deKorator 0.5 no longer offers a "Paths" tab to set theme paths individually. If a theme does not install, please report this to the author of the theme..

* I do no longer provide binary packages, most distributions already ship deKorator. Ask them to update.

* To install from source, you need cmake, kdebase-workspace-dev, and libqimageblitz-dev (or similary named). Additionally, you must have the KDE 4 binaries in your path. Use

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/kde4/bin/
cd dekorator-0.5.1
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
make
sudo make install


* deKorator is developed in KDE's git repository, see https://projects.kde.org/projects/playground/artwork/dekorator

Thanks so much for porting deKorator.

However, I have found a problem with shading on the KDE4 version.

If I double-click the title bar, initially instead of shading properly, I get a desktop full of titlebars! Then, if I double-click again, I get the proper shaded effect, but it is stuck like that.

The only way to get the window back again is to right-click the icon on the task manager, select "Resize", and move the mouse around on the desktop.

I'm using openSuse 11 with KDE 4.1.

Has anyone else noticed this problem or is it due to some obscure setting I haven't noticed?

I hope you can solve this problem. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Cheers

Thanks Thailandian for the problem report, I was able to reproduce the effect you described.

Please try setting the "Show bottom border when window is shaded" option on the Misc tab until I have a fix, and let me now if this workaround helps.

I forgot to add: During porting, I had to disable the "blend" and "solarize" modes, so these do not work.
