I have downloaded and followed the directions of the "how to install" option, however, all is good until I try to apply the decoration! Instead if it being a MAC style toolbar, Its just plain blue with no buttons on it at all!

Anybody have any ideas?

Hi
I recently updated Kde 3.1.x to 3.2, and I can't make this window decoration to work because IceWm is no longer after I installed Kde 3.2.

Is there a way to install it or make it work?

Thanks.
Maxi.

Have you installed the KDE-Artwork package?

Hi,
I'd like to start by saying that this is awesome looking, I've combined it with the mac os icons someone else posted and it really looks similar to the real thing.

I've noticed though on my machine that the rounded corners aren't really round. In actual fact, the part missing that would normally make them sharp corners is filled in with whatever is in the background when the window is first drawn. It's a minor annoyance but i'm wondering if there's something I can do to alleviate this

How do I get the yellow, green, and red buttons on the left side of the window like in real OS X? Your screenshot shows it, but mine're still on the right side.

Open the file 'default.theme' in the theme directory and add the following two lines after the line 'TitleButtonsSupported="xhmsird"':

TitleButtonsRight="srh"
TitleButtonsLeft="xim"



That should switch the buttons around.

I tried this and was hoping it would be more like kwinacquamod_l3m-1.2 (a clone of the OSX windec) here on kde-look. This one is getting close, but still has sharp light blue corners at the top (not completely rounded). Maybe it requires a later version of Ice-WM on KDE? I'm running KDE 3.1.3 and I don't know what Ice-WM engine is installed.

Really nice Window decoration, almost convinced me to switch to IceWM :)

Quick question, how do you get the kicker bar (the one on the top of the screen, not the Ksmoothdock on the bottom) to look like that? Its so much smoother/cleaner than what I have previously seen.

Keep up the good work!

What kicker are you using ... is a karamba theme, ksmooth dock or what is it?

It's KSmoothDock 2.1 with some modifications, that version still had parabolic icon zooming and I like it better.

Heey your modification must be great ... i'm interested in your work because other kickers like Karamba theme crashes every time and Ksmoothdock is more stable ... Tell me about the posibility of you upload your ksmooth modified source (or what ever).

Repeat ... i very interested in your work i want that you contact me for the interchange the file via mail (shure ... only if you want), or if you're interested on upload your ksmoothdock 2.1 modificated for all us.

Many thanks.

I'll probably release it at some point, but the code has to be cleaned up, it's just a quick hack right now. And this old version of KSmoothDock is not very stable, it's crasing when resizing the dock. That's one of the reasons why the original author removed the parabolic zooming from KSmoothDock. I'll post the source code on kdelook.org when I'll have some time to clean it up :)

I've added two more versions, one with square top corners and one with lighter coloured buttons. I guess you wanted something like the second version :)
