Description:

I did an ICE window decoration '3dnomore' a long time ago. Now I make it a KDE native windows decoration. This means you may customize its colors now!

Bug reports and any advices are welcome.
Last changelog:

16 years ago

0.65: Frame style 'Solid lines' added. Configuration dialog is now designed with QT Designer, which make the source more readable.
0.6: Some color options added. Now the colors should be adjusted through the KDE Control Module. And one more option: "Invert the gears", which should make it looks better when 'Titlebar Blend' is darker than 'Gears', I think. Improved dashed line effect, that is, blend the edge with the color outside the window to make it looks 'smooth'.
0.5: Installation scripts generated by KAppTemplate, './configure' is available now. Implemented button highlighting and optional normal 3d frame. (for people who hate dashed lines :-)
0.2: Implemented the 'Sticky' button.

Hi, I made a Debian package for this great decoration.

http://thunfisch.dyndns.org/deb/K3DNoMore/

I hope it's ok for you, elephant. If not, just let me know and I'll remove the package from my server.

Actually, this package didn't work for me (because of woody ;)), but I built my own package using your source package ... you can find it @ http://xhaven.net/robert/debian/packages/k3dnomore_0.65-1_i386.deb

would you consider adding an option to have a no3d look with a solid line instead of a dotted one? that would really make it cool. the dotted line distracts me a little and not having any (i.e. setting the same color as window background) is somewhat confusing. thanks

Maybe you have missed some k*-devel packages?

I like it a lot and for now it's my default
decoration. But it's the first application
that refuses to work with checkinstall,
so is there any way to uninstall this?
Another thing:
A maximized window doesn't have
a dashed line on the right and left
border. And the close button of
a maximized window could be a bit
more to the left.

Doesn't 'make uninstall' work? If not, find out and delete k3dnomore* :-).

a very smart design. Event though its colors are a little difficult to handle.
i like the idea of cutting a window out of the desktop!

what i dont like is your glossy shiny 3d icons with your "no more 3d" windows. ;-)

I love this, but I cant stand the "dotted line" (i know its part of the point but it still..)

good anyhow..

If you had payed attention, you would've seen that in the latest update, the dotted border is OPTIONAL. You can turn it off and you get a great looking _normal_ border.

I really like the normal borders, as seen in screenshot #2. With the dotted border all I could think about was the dotted border and not the window decoration. With the normal border the very stylish window decoration gets the attention. And it's very nice.

Could we have the option of bigger handles on the base of the window for resizing? The current one-pixel bar is a pain to hit...

Has anybody succeeded in compiling it for the unofficial Debian KDE3.1 Debs? I managed to do some other styles (after solving some g++3.2 problems), but i can't do that! Any suggestions?
This is the Problem:
configure.in:66: error: m4_popdef: undefined macro: AC_Dest
autoconf/status.m4:844: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from...
configure.in:66: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [configure] Fehler 1

Thnx in advance...

Kwin segfaults often on my computer when using this deco or rh's bluecurve. It crashes everytime I click on the very left button, the Kwin menu button... Using Kde31RC3, QT31..

I sent the hack to elephant, 'coz it's his project. He can use my hack if he wishes (if given credit, of course).

Anyway, here's a link to a screenshot of how MY version of 3D No More looks: http://www.parena.net/KWin-3DNoMore-hacked.jpg

I love the 'normal' border. Thanks...

I sent you a hack, though. It puts the sticky button on the right side (next to the minimize button) and makes it look the same way as the other buttons. Maybe you can use that. Anyway, read my email. :)

AMAZING! Very Cool!

I didn't use the iceWM ones because i disliked the colors. This is the way out and i have a new favourite WM-Decoration! I love it, thank you!

I'm using gentoo linux with kde 3.0.4
I dont find the correct directories for the makefile
I found:
/usr/lib/qt3/bin/moc is /usr/qt/3/bin/moc
/usr/lib/qt3/include is /usr/qt/3/include (but could be /usr/kde/3/include also, since some of the files required are in the first one, and some on the second one)
/usr/lib/kwin.la is /usr/kde/3/lib/kwin.la
/usr/lib/kde3 is ?? (not sure this one, I have this one but also /usr/kde/3/lib )
any ideas?

You have to edit the Makefile by hand and change all the directory names to the ones that actually contain your QT and KDE headers.

This is good. And I am so glad someone out there is making something original. Please keep it up and give us more!!

I'm not getting the Sticky button here. Even 'uninstalled' v0.1 to make sure it all went okay. But nooo Sticky button, unfortunately.

I only tested it on my KDE 3.0. Maybe you should restart your 'kwin', e.g. logout & login.

Weird, though. I never have to do re-login for these changes to take effect. *confused* :)

Perhaps you should look into making a configure script so the Makefile doesn't *assume* my QT libraries are located in a certain place.

You should read the README file that says you can edit the Makefile to suit your system...
