Domino

Description:

This is a port of the window decoration only, not the widget style! Do not ask me if I am going to port the widget style (I do not know the answer!)

Another unofficial port, released as a Christmas present ;) Actually looks quite okay together with Skulpture style (seen on screenshot), so maybe it is useful. Does not work good with Oxygen, because of Oxygens title bar blending.

Original author and copyright: Michael Lentner, see http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Domino?content=42804 for details. Ported as allowed per GPL2 license.

For build instructions, see my deKorator port, except that it does not need QImageBlitz.

Hello! I've installed this in Kubuntu Karmic 9.10, KDE 4.3.2. You'll note that all the window frames are missing.

I used the source from here and compiled successfully.

It is a cmake based project. To install:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/kde4/bin/
cd kde4-windeco-domino-0.4/
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
make
sudo make install

You need packages cmake and kdebase-workspace-dev

First of all, thank you for this nice decoration.

I just would like to report two small bugs

1) Buttons are not visible on inactive windows. However, if the cursor is moved over the title bar of inactive windows, the buttons appear, only to disappear when the cursor moves out of the titlebar

2) if the box show buttons on inactive windows is checked, not only buttons are not shown on inactive windows, but they also disappear from the active window-

Yep, you also have to select the next check box "Show button icons", then also inactive buttons are visible.

I am not sure if this is a bug in the original version, or if I broke it during porting. Actually I never used Domino :)

Thanks for reporting.

Highly appreciated, kudos to you :)

Merry x-mas to you!

P.S. I'm not asking but is there a
even a smallest tinyest of possibilities
that you might consider porting the domino
style? I would do it myself but as I'm
all thumbs when it comes to programming
I really can't (yet).

Rob, I certainly considered porting it, otherwise I would not have downloaded the source. But looking at my other plans, I don't see it happening. In other words, if my other plans fail, I might reconsider it.

If you are new to KDE programming, just download the source from this page, enable the domino and dominoConfig subdirs in CMakeLists.txt, and start hacking. The error messages should guide you ;)

Merry Christmas!
