Description:

A Mac OSX like window decoration by modifying the 'Web' decoration.
Make your desktop more acqua like when use with the 'Acqua'style.

install:
configure --prefix=your_kde_install_path
make
make install


== IMPORTANT UPDATE ==
Mr. James Liu has asked me (M. J. Soto) to upload this short update, explaining what I did to compile this decor under KDE 3.0 (see shot 2).

Please, note that I'm not a programmer. I don't know C++. What I did is just a couple of trial and (mostly) error edits.

So: 1) get the tarball. 2) ./configure as usual. 3) edit acqua/Acqua.cpp and 3a) add #include <qvariant> as FIRST include, just before unistd.h, at line 21. 3b) delete line 30, which contains #undef Bool. 4) delete all moc files. 5) generate new moc files. 6) make 7) edit acqua/Makefile and change the one instance of kde2 to kde3. (this is the place to save the compiled libs). 8) make install. 9) run libtool --finish as per instructions.

10) Enjoy it!

NOTE:
Please note that this trick is also valid for kwinacqua_ace. I compiled both, thought the ace version with transparency was real slow.

DISCLAIMER: standard disclaimer. If your computer bombs it's not my fault, nor that of Mr. Liu.

Figure out how to replace the liquid scrollbars with those from the acqua style : )

It doesn't seem to work for me, either. Author, are there any special instructions in making this work with KDE 2.2? :) -dT-

Looks good... How do inactive windows look like? Is their title bar transparent?

Sorry pal! I was quite enthused but it did not work. Or maybe I'm missing something here? How do you install it? I did the following after gzip-untarring:
./configure
make
make install

The name showed up in the 'Window Decoration' option of Preferences but did not change the decoration as mentioned.

In the file $(KDE2DIR)/share/apps/kwin/acqua.desktop
there is a typing error:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Acqua
X-KDE-Library=libkwinaqua

It should say:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Acqua
X-KDE-Library=libkwinacqua

Cheers!

Thanks, that fixed the problem.
But this window skins is terribly SLOW.
So I can't use it for now.
If this is fixed and we are able to use aplication icon on the window decoration, this theme will rock.
