Description:

BlueIce v4 is a modified kwin decoration based on jrch2k's Advanced Kwin Decoration Client. Thanks jrch2k!

(http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=12330)

BlueIce contains everything used in the original nvidia kwin decoration, excluding the images that are used and the name displayed in the control center.

I have also included a color scheme which works well with this decoration. It can be found in the color scheme folder.

BlueIce version 4 has now been added replacing older versions of BlueIce.

BlueIce, Dark BlueIce v4 fix the config part of this decoration so that it now fits the screensize better. v4 also includes a few minor bug fixes.

debian .deb and mandrake .rpm now available.

Thanks to korrel from www.mandrakeclub.nl for the RPMs!

Note : BlueIce v4 will not conflict with the AKDC / nvidia kwin decoration.

Enjoy!

Looks great, but why is the config/install page so long that I can't see the bottom half on a 1280x1024 monitor?

This is my favourite, but sort of unusable due to the help button position (over the window title most of the time) and the fact that it can only be removed, not relocated, in the KDE Control Center. I was even considering proposing it as default kwin theme for Vector Linux, replacing the current Plastik. Hopefully this can be fixed in the next version.

I installed it on PC-BSD but when I select it from the drop-down menu in the Control Center, it crashes...

I compiled blue-ice on SuSE9.3 and it works, but the top-right edge is messed up: titlebar-center doesn't match titlebar-right. It happened also with AKDC Nvidia.

In some programs there is a small 'question-mark' icon in the window decoration. It doesn't look like the rest of blueice. i can't find an option to turn it off.. Anyone know how to fix it?

You can disable the small 'question-mark' by going to:

> control center
> window decorations
> under the buttons tab, select "use custom titlebar button positions"
> drag the ' ? ' button that you see down to the available item list.
> Click "apply".
> The ' ? ' help button should no longer be showing.

nice and easy to install with .deb but it would be greater :

- to be able to set more parameters, like colors and height

- to put icons at the extreme left of the window

thanx.

Yes. i had to recompile the window decoration. Using the new qt compiled conflicted with the theme cause it was compiled with the old qt. Good thing too, cause i LOVE this theme ^_^

I just recompiled kde, with immqt as my use flag (for my japanese text support) But when i did that and restarted. The theme did not work at all on my computer. IT took 5 minutes to load up kde, and the theme bars didnt exist, so i couldnt even move the windows around. i hade to delete my .kde3.3 folder. This happends also with the nvidia theme as well. Just to let you know. I will try re-compiling the theme.

Thank you for the report. I was just wondering why dark blueice didn't work for you.

Did you restart kde after installing the decoration? I found that some kwin decorations tend to not work properly until kde has been restarted.

Please let me know any more information that you have on this issue.

Thanks!

how can I put that moon on my run command?

Report

You can put that moon on your run command by acquiring the kmoon.png icon from the apps folder of the nuvola icon theme (I used nuvola-1.0b) and adding it to the apps folder of your icon theme with the name kmenu.png instead of kmoon.png.

Simply re-install your theme, and the moon will show up in your run command window.

Hello,

the config part of the deco is way too big, at least in KDE 3.2 at 1280x1024.
Same problem with nVidia deco, though.
