Description:

Many thanks to dralgebra for his wonderful OpenGL-based Crystal (Crystal-GL) and for his embedtool app and to ceebx for his Knifty!

I like a lot both Knifty style and Crystal-GL for its GL translucency feature but I didnt like the default Crystal theme so much... so I made this patch.
This patch adds (not just overwrites the default theme) a Knifty-like icon set to Crystal-GL that allows to make that style look like Knifty.

* Untar the Crystal-GL tarball then apply the patch:
* # zcat crystalgl-knifty.diff.gz | patch -p0
* Recompile it, install it and then restart your KDE session.
* Open kcontrol, go to Look and Feel -> Window Decorations and select Crystal-GL
* Make the upper left and right borders round and make the titlebar height at least of 22px
* Click on the "Buttons" tab, select "Crystal Knifty" in "Button theme", and check the "Hover effect" box.
That's all!

I wanted to include the png's tarball too but it seems impossible to upload a second file

You might want to up a better screenshot. I cant see anything in that shrunken down, blurry as hell, screeshot of a WD. How about a small screen of the actual WD, we dont need an entire desktop shot, do we?

You're right, that screenshot just sucks... so I've uploaded a pair of decent ones

Sweet. Good job and thanks for the ss update. The second one is perfect to better illustrate the changes you have made to Knitfy :)

Applied it and looks great. Thank you.

But could you mail the png files to me, that I can officially add them to my decoration? You get credit, of course, and it would make this patch obsolete.
I would like to ship built-in button themes, and I would like to distribute the png files, too, so everyone can modify them and add new themes.

Thank you very much! :)
Of course I can send you the pngs... I'm about to do it now! I would be happy if you include these buttons in your program!
