Description:

KDE-gaps is a modification of Arc-Dark by varlesh (https://github.com/PapirusDevelopmentTeam/arc-kde) that removes the title, window buttons, and makes the window decorations completely transparent. KDE-gaps is setup to have a 10px gap between windows to simulate the look of a tiling Window Manager. I suggest setting up the "Quick Tile" hotkeys in KDE's settings for easy window moving (Settings -> Shortcuts -> Global Shortcuts -> KWin).

KDE-gaps-glow is the same concept as KDE-gaps, but with glowing window borders. It is a modification of the AeroGlow-Oxygen theme (https://store.kde.org/content/show.php?content=161639).

Could you add an effect to make the active window have some kind of glow effect like in the oxygen decoration?

Done! The corners are a little rounded looking with the glow effect... I'll try and see what I can do about that and see if I can reduce the glow on inactive windows.

I extracted it into the .local/share/aurorae/themes directory, but choosing the decoration still does not give any glow. Is there some option I'm supposed to enable?

You'll have to install it using the built in "Get New Decorations" app in the settings. I'm not sure why, but extracting it manually doesn't seem to work. When you click install, just select the KDE-gaps-glow version.

I get no option to choose the decoration if I do that. There is a KDE-gaps-glow folder in .local/share/aurorae/themes, but the option doesnt appear in the settings module.

It should show up as a different theme entirely in the Window Decorations settings; a black one with blueish-green glowing edges.

Oh sorry. I checked again, and extracting it into the required location does work. Thanks!

Changed version of Arc-Dark used in the theme in order to give proper credit.
