In case of the syntax erros that are mentioned above, install kdebase-devel. It contains the file kdecoration.h which is needed to compile this package.

After executing ./configure, the "check" process fails with the following error...

It says "Error: sintax error before '}' token" or something like that... maybe a mistake from mine?

Is anyone having pobs installing this? Complains it can't find Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) even though I have 3.3 installed and am pointing configure to the right path...
Help!

You've got to install kdelibs-devel first. I used to have the same problem in my Just-Running MDK10. Remember to point the configure to your KDE config dir, nor will install and none will be seen in the config panel.

This is a very nice windec. My only "complaint" is that it doesn't look as nice when a window is shaded. It still shows the bottom border of the window, thus ruining the nice, rounded corners. I know most windecs do that, actually, 'cept for Grover, so really, this isn't a complaint against *this* windec really, but most of the others. ;-)

But shaded windows won't look complete without the bottom border proudly displaying the title blend colour!

Just my opinion, of course, since a lot of people clearly don't think that more colours == better. ;)

This complements the Active Heart style perfectly. Even Plastik wasn't able to become both my style and window decoration of choice (I preferred the Knifty windeco).

Being able to reduce the titlebar's height is a very useful option, adding to this windeco's attractiveness. Well done, very well done!
