Description:

NEW VERSION!

I based this one off of Alloy, which is why it's called Alloyon. After the rewrite, it hasn't got much to do with Alloy anymore, except for the pixmaps used for the buttons in the corners of the windows.

If you experience problems with this windec, feel free to contact me.

[ NOTICE ]
If you experience problems with compilation, do one of the following:
- Upgrade Qt to 3.3.x
- Change all occurences of "3.3" to "3.2" in alloyonclient/config/configdialog.ui.

Yours,
Simon Ask Ulsnes

This is definitely one of the BEST KDE Win Deco's i've seen. It has that thin visible border covering the entire window all the way around, like KlearBox, making everything look nice and tidy, not to mention the mellow, but sharp looking gradient in the title bar, excellent. It's simple, easy on the eyes, and beautiful. Simple, but hard to beat =]

I love this window decoration! I only have one gripe though: when you maximize a window you lose the strip of lighter pixels that is on the very top of the window.

i got this when i ran make using QT 3.2.3.

usr/lib/qt3//bin/uic -L /usr/lib/kde3/plugins/designer -nounload -o configdialog.h ./configdialog.ui
uic: File generated with too recent version of Qt Designer (3.3 vs. 3.2.3)
make[3]: *** [configdialog.h] Error 1

In order to make the program you have to edit the alloyondir/alloyonclient/config/configdialiog.ui file at the top to say 3.2.3 instead of 3.3

Nice theme. I'm already using previous version and I like the ugly red button.

Now, I can't make the new version. Config is ok, I have qt 3.3.x but...

maxilys@tinbox:~/alloyon-0.2> make
cd . && /bin/sh /home/maxilys/alloyon-0.2/admin/missing --run autoheader
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81.
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Erreur 1

Is my perl broken? I don't use it much by myself, so I don't know. I looked in autom4te script but it's just plain chinese to me. ;-)

Hard to tell...
Your build environment is obviously mad. In Gentoo, this usually means invalid/bad CFLAGS. I have no idea how Fedora configures its build environment, so I can't help you here.

Try reinstalling the development packages for your system (gcc, asm, etc).

Hi

I really like your WinDec, very simple and sleek.

Just one request, if not too much trouble -- could you add an option to center the titlebar text?

Keep up the nice work...

I like it a lot, but I wish the titlebar could be smaller...

I really would like to use it, but I get the following error right after launching make:

> make && sudo make install
cd . && /bin/sh /home/cschlipf/tmp/themes/alloyon-0.2/admin/missing --run autoheader
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81.
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Error 1


Do I have a wrong version of autom4te? My system is RedHat 9.

Removing the autom4te.cache directory solved this problem for me.

I just wanted to say that i think the rewrite looks really great. Thanx allot for the great Window Decoration.

I do have one request though? I would love to see a rounded corners option..?

Heh, yeah, so would I. ;-)
But I have no idea how to make that, I guess you need to use the X extension directly?

Maybe I'll take a look at Bluecurve or Plastik to see how they did it, and if it doesn't require too much restructuring I'll implement it. Or someone who actually knows how to do it could, it's GPL :-)

Hi, I just wanted to let you know:
I'm almost done with the complete rewrite, and here are some of the new stuff that will be available:

- Configurable title size
- Configurable shadow distance
- Configurable button spacing

It'll be ready tomorrow, right now I need some sleep. :-)

the only thing I am missing is the ability to configure the height of the title bar.

I don't like the huge title bars as these are just a waste of space IMO.

As soon as Alloyon is able to reduce the size of the title bar I will definitely use it.
