I updated the skin in order to better match with current breeze window decoration. I removed circles arround the pin and menu buttons. I am sorry, I don't have time to create another theme with a different close button. - Feb 19 2019

It doesn't happen on KDE 4.9.97. I don't know if the scrollbar widget has been fixed or it doesn't happen because scrollbars in the plasma theme have changed.

Same problem with this aurorae theme: - Jun 12 2011
It seems to happen when the title can't fit in the window.
It is a bug in Aurorae's glow effect.
Can you do a bug report on ? - Jun 10 2011
I will send you a version, but I don't think it will look good. - Dec 22 2010
Thank you too. - Dec 21 2010
There is already an inner border. Aurorae doesn't allow to make it optional. I can create a copy of this theme without the inner border if you want. - Dec 21 2010

I installed kubuntu 10.10 on virtualbox. This version of kubuntu uses KDE SC 4.5.
Borders are properly displayed.
I don't understand your problem. - Mar 17 2011
"This theme works fine on KDE4.5! after I installed qtcurve 1.5.x, all it's dependencies and applied one of their styles. "

Are you sure it was related to that ?

I think you reloaded kwin and the theme is now properly applied. - Mar 15 2011
Blur is already available with this theme and KDE 4.5. - Jul 09 2010
The previous posts was related to Air-oxygen 0.3.
0.4 is designed for kde 4.5. I will test kde 4.5 rc1 and update my theme or contact the developer of Aurorae. - Jun 30 2010
I will do that when I will have time.
I would like work on the buttons again: they still do not look exactly like oxygen buttons. - Jun 30 2010
"NO, the description clearly states KDE 4.x"

KDE-look does not give the choice of select 4.3 or 4.4.

I can try to change the .rc file and see if it make a difference.

Anyway, Aurorae was not part of kde sc 4.3 and there was several version of it.

I am studying the bug. - Apr 13 2010
"Maybe you should learn to accept criticism before posting your work publicly for review. If your theme doesn't work, it just doesn't work."

I said it works with kde 4.4. What can I do ? I must install kde 4.3 for solve it ? I admit I don't have the time for that. - Apr 12 2010
"The bug is in your theme not KDE. All other themes work just fine."

All ?

I am quiet sure there are bugs in Aurorae of kde 4.3.

I am quiet sure Aurorae will be modifyied for kde 4.5 and I will need to modify this theme. I consider that it is not ready while title with halo effect and background with a blur effect are not released in Aurorae.

This theme is opensource, you can play with it if you have the time. I prefer look the futur. - Apr 12 2010
What version of kde do you use ?

I use kde 4.4.2 and this theme works fine.

I don't have the time to invest in bugs with kde 4.3. - Apr 11 2010
Aurorae of kde 4.3 contains bugs. Please wait kde 4.4. - Feb 20 2010
It works fine with kde sc4.4 for me. - Feb 06 2010
hint-apply-color-scheme seems to be supported by Aurorae.
But I don't know how it works.
With this theme and a hint-apply-color-scheme element, the shadow is white :)

Any help should be appreciated. - Feb 02 2010
"you only need to be a little more opaque to offset that kwin has no blur"

It will not really be satisfying.

"and the shadow of the active window should be black and a bit bigger"

I follow oxygen's concepts. - Jan 31 2010
I am working at it.
If I get a good result I will publish it.
Feel free to improve it.

"edit it if my item, but not like you for your attention to my comment"

Sorry I don't understand what you want say. - Jan 26 2010
"I assume that's the decoration.svgz file."

Yes, you must modify the alpha value of the gradient used in the decoration. Gimp is not made for edit svg. Try to learn how use Inkscape.

This decoration is very transparent because I want the background be blurry behind it. Anyway, it doesn't seem supported with current KWin. - Jan 23 2010
For ubuntu it is the package: kwin-style-aurorae
You can compile it from source:
or wait KDE SC 4.4 because it is integrated in it. - Jan 20 2010
Have you got Aurorae installed ?
if it is the case, go to the systemsettings, in the Window page and select Aurorae.
After that, you can download Air-oxygen throught KHNS (the button "Get new themes") - Jan 19 2010
it would be nice,
Please ask to aurorae devs for this feature. - Jan 18 2010
I seems I missed to add the decoration.svgz in the archive.
It is fixed now. - Jan 18 2010

Thank you !!

Why is there a space between the start/stop button and the right border ?

You should invert lock and unlock buttons. - Dec 22 2010
The icon for the activity manager is "preferences-activities". - Dec 20 2010
Another solution:
Add a "wrench" icon at the right of the "activities" title bar.
This icon makes visible/not visible the "clone", "edit", "remove" buttons. - Dec 20 2010
I didn't tried your plasmoid but your screenshot looks good.

Can you hide the clone/edit/remove buttons when plasmoids are locked ?

I don't like useless widgets when my desktop is in productivity mode. - Dec 19 2010

>Agree (but I'd like to keep the meter)

The meter is not very beautiful.

>Why do you think this is necessary (the current volume is already represented by the slider)?

When I say "current volume" I mean the quantity of sound currently produced by the speaker.

Pavucontrol and MS Windows mixer have this feature. - Dec 20 2010
Thanks, it looks better now.

Here some suggestions to improve visual quality:
- find a way to make the slider not over the text.
- replace the expand icon with something and more explicit: a "triangle" like the notification widget, or a "plus" like the transfer job widget.

here a mockup:

Another idea (I don't know if it is possible):
represent the current volume with a rectangle behind the item.

here a mockup: - Dec 20 2010
What do you think about use this kind of popup ?

One popup for each output stream.
Each popup contains a title (with a volum control) and a list of input streams (with their volume control).
The user could drag n drop an input stream to another popup (ie. output stream). - Oct 12 2010
I hope I understand how it works.

Why not something looking like that ?:

[icon] Internes Audio Analog Stereo[meter]
[icon] amarok [meter]
[icon] bangarang [meter]
[icon] RTP-Multicast [meter]
[icon] plugin-container [meter]

I assume the plasmoid is at the bottom of the screen - Oct 12 2010
On your screenshot, if you compare the left and right icons of the "Internes Audio Analog Stereo" item and the "Amarok Audio Stream" item, you see that they are inverted.

Can you explain why you made this choice ?
In my opinion, it is not very aesthetic. - Oct 12 2010

When the window is maximized, the titlebar is rendered with the decoration-center element.

You can't align buttons at the top and align icon at the middle. - Feb 17 2010
