I get this:
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Windows 8 decoration theme 100%
kwin_win8 Installed

kbuildsycoca4(11470) VFolderMenu::loadDoc: Parse error in "/home/noah/.config/menus/applications-merged/xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu" , line 1 , col 1 : "error occurred while parsing element"

And then it just sits there. It doesn even go back to the command prompt. xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu doesn't have the xml structure. Should it?

OK it sort of works now excep the colors are wrong. The only color is this: #34495E. Could you please convert to a newer window decoration format? The bewer ones are now in .../apps/aurorae/themes

QML Decorations are newer than Aurorae. Unfortunately exists no support by plasmapkg. Patch is ready: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/105677/

Is there any chance to add an option to disable the inner frame? It would be usefull for themes with the same color of window background and active titlebar.
Now there is a line between titlebar and the rest of the window when it is set to fullscreen.

regards, good job! :)

If I understood what you asking. I used GIMP to reverse engineer pixels from Windows 8 screenshot. Inkscape to make button icons. Kate to code. The code was based in Plastik QML but yet have bugs which I have no idea.

Sorry for my bad English.

It doesn't work to me. I'm using Kde 4.8. Nothing happens after running "163027-kwin_win8.run". No option appear in System Setting.

Hi, I think you need at least KDE 4.10.
