And your description in the "System Settings Add-On Installer" for KDE makes no mention of the KDE 4.4 requirement either. A user would have to visit this site and read your excuses before they would realize what the trouble is.

NO, the description clearly states KDE 4.x

After further review, it appears ONE other guy has made defective themes as well (and he probably based his theme on yours).

Congrats on not being the only one! At least he is trying to figure it out without being a jerk.

Out of 6 pages of Aurorae themes, only two designers have this same issue and it effects only 3 themes total.

Hi, I use Kubuntu 9.10 and installed aurorae (KDE4.3.5) but when I try to download this theme to my aurorae, it shows me just buttons, without decorations. Previous version of this deco was OK. Quite strange thing...

The only thing I would say is; The active window shadow is hard coded to the svgz file, so if people use a different colour scheme, they still get the same blue shadow glow.

I'm not sure if the hint-apply-color-scheme will help here or if it's supported by aurorae.

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.

you only need to be a little more opaque to offset that kwin has no blur and the shadow of the active window should be black and a bit bigger

sorry for my bad english, i'm using a translator

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.

not differentiate active from inactive windows and is very transparent and that makes it almost is no different letters in the decor and the window that is behind

This is really beautiful. I've been waiting for the new KDE4.4 titlebar button look, and you nailed it.

But... the whole titlebar's too transparent for my liking. Stuff behind it shows through to the extent that it gets in the way of even reading the window title. Is there an easy way to turn down the transparency. The Aurorae engine doesn't offer such a setting on the 'Window' control panel where you select it.

Also, while I'm at it, it'd be nice to allow the window border width to be shrunken.

I don't know whether the Aurorae engine allows for such configurability. If not, would you recommend against trying to tweak the theme myself?

Well, I found the air-oxygenrc file, and modifying the borders was easy. But there's nothing in there about transparency.

Saw comments on the Aurorae engine page to the effect that the transparency is specified by the SVG's in the theme. I assume that's the decoration.svgz file. I tried uncompressing that and brought it up in GIMP, though I don't know enough about GIMP to mess with the transparency. In any case, it's only the *active* titlebar I want to be less transparent, and since there only seems to be one titlebar SVG, I guess I'm out of luck.

"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.

Thanks for the info (and the decoration - I still like it better than anything else I've found).

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")

How install it please?

I don't find any package with 'aptitude search aurorae'

Excuse me for all the questions, I'm a newbie concerning customisation...

For ubuntu it is the package: kwin-style-aurorae
You can compile it from source:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Aurorae+Theme+Engine?content=107158
or wait KDE SC 4.4 because it is integrated in it.

I've downloaded the source with your link but the compilation failed...

I prefer to wait it present on the Debian repositories...
