Description:

This window dec is the same as KWinAcquaMod + Dropshadows by l3m, except ive moved the Iconify/Maximize/Close buttons to the right hand side. This is for those people who are so used "normal" window decorations.

the download link doesn't work!
I like the idea moving the window buttons back to where I'm used to see them...

Basically, the whole "Dropshadow" is a nasty hack. Its just a transparent border, with shadows. This cannot be done any other way, until X supports REAL transparency (as far as i can see anyway).

In response to (i think this is what you were trying to say) Shadows showing through other programs (such as Always-On-Top programs) i will post a fix for this soon, aswell as non-focused windows having a drop shadow (smaller shadow than the focused window of course) to give a more "3D" effect.

few annoying bugs:

1: window A is below window B.
window A raises itself without taking focus
BUG: Shadows are still drawn over window A

2: window A is below window B
window A changes, or text scrolls
BUG: Shadows do not update.

Now, i know theres an option to refresh every X ms. but that is more of a hack than a solution to the problem. Is there a way to update shadows when the proper X events are received?

also, you cannot click through the shadow to raise focus on the window below.

Maybe you should add the fix given in the discussion to

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=5085

which fixes the ugly line in the bottom shadow.

I checked out that discussion, and made the changes as stated on your site. I have uploaded the new tarball.

For all of those debian users out there, if you want to build a deb of this window dec, download the tarball, extract it, cd to the directory it makes and run 'debuild -us -uc'.
A debian package (.deb) will be built in the parent directory.

Where's the source? alien converted the .deb allright, but the decoration crashes on my system (Gentoo 1.4rcSomething, KDE 3.1 final).

I'd love to have this one, which has the buttons placed in the proper positions, but why do I get a .deb package rather than a tarball or something?
