I actually haven't been on KDE for a while, so this must be some new change to Dolphin. Glad you got it sorted out. - Jun 13 2013
Caledonia looks a lot like the default Elementary desktop theme, but I actually alternate between it and Fushigi. Both very good themes. - Mar 19 2013
Thanks. I'll do another version soon with the 'pin' buttons. I've checked into it and Aurorae doesn't support the window menubar option, but it will be available for KDE 4.11. I can assure you that there will be an update then, as I love that feature. - Mar 19 2013

You can try a feature request. Give me a link if you do and I'll back it. - Apr 25 2013
They're doing an awesome job! I really, really wish that qtcurve and aurorae were flexible enough to mirror these changes, but sadly it just can't happen with the way it is now. You'd have to be able to use pixmaps and make detailed changes to margins, amongst other things. I'll keep my eye on these changes and implement them as I'm allowed. - Apr 25 2013
In other words: it's "form over function", for now. ;) - Mar 19 2013
We're stuck with the current version for now. :) I will do an update if they add the much needed support for a window resize handle, but for now my only choice is to make the window borders bigger, which kills the beauty of the theme to me. Support for configurable shadows is broken in Aurorae, too. - Mar 19 2013
Sure, here's a link to it.

Thanks. The theme is just a qtcurve that I modified to look like the Elementary gtk theme. - Dec 12 2012

Thank you. :) Is this the decoration you speak of?

That's quite the theme, but as far as I know Aurorae isn't capable of it, currently. - Jan 31 2013

Thanks! I have since moved to using Kwin and Aurorae, so I've stopped work on Emerald themes for now and am messing around with Aurorae themes. - Feb 15 2012
Never mind. I got it to look decent and uploaded it anyway. There are minor glitches, but it'll do. - Jan 13 2011
Well, I tried to make it and found out Emerald can't hang. :)

There were just too many issues with all the different gradients. It looked horrible. - Jan 12 2011
I was actually thinking about bringing those back. When I get time I'll see what I can do. I think it's possible. - Jan 10 2011
Done. - Jan 07 2011
Thanks.

I'm not sure I follow what you mean. There's a setting in Emerald Theme Manager in the Emerald Settings tab for decoration cropping. Does that do it? - Dec 31 2010
This was posted to KDE-Look. Because it's in the Emerald category, it comes up on all the related sites, gnome-look, compiz-themes etc. - Dec 28 2010
Thanks very much. - Dec 27 2010
Never mind. This is as good as emerald will allow it to get.

The problem is that the oxygen gradient is not stretched, but centered, so the light part is the same width no matter how big the window is. Emeralds options will either stretch it or leave it stationary, in which case the gradient won't line up since there's no 'centered' option.

Oh well. Maybe someday they'll fix KDE Window Decorator and we wont have to use this. - Dec 25 2010
I have an idea that I'll try later to try to fix the gradient issue. If I fix it, I'll update this and post how I fixed it. - Dec 25 2010
Thank you and a Merry Christmas to you! - Dec 25 2010

Thank you! - Jun 11 2011
First, thanks a lot for your comment and I'm glad to know you like it.

For the glitch in the task bar, I think it may have to do with a bug in Plasma, but I will check into it and hopefully have a new version out soon. I've been slowly and lazily making changes. :) - May 28 2011
Glad it worked. The 'Get New Stuff' feature needs some developer attention. - Sep 20 2010
Have you tried updating to the latest version? I'm pretty sure I've added that icon in. Before you upgrade, make sure to delete the version you currently have and reinstall to work around a bug with 'Get New Themes'. Let me know if it works. - Sep 20 2010

Instead of using alt-tab, here's an add on that lets you enable dragging by the tab bar. Maybe you could use the code for it? And great theme!

Here it is. It's pretty bare right now. Most of the widgets are from the Atelier theme. It would be cool to see you do something with it.:)

I haven't posted it. It was just for fun.

I can upload it for you if you want.

It's still missing a lot of elements, but if you want to see what you can do with it, go for it. :) - Jan 21 2011
And your criticism and character are NASTY ugly. - Jan 20 2011
It's crazy that you posted this because I just finished making a windows 3.11 theme for plasma. Nostalgia must be in the air!

Weird how there once was a time when this looked exciting and modern. :) - Jan 20 2011

Aha! That almost accomplishes what I'm trying to do.

What I'm going for, is to make a theme in which only the menu bar is transparent, which I will blend into a title bar.

To make that happen, I've tried setting the background appearance to a custom gradient, with an opacity value of 100%, and the menu bar to another custom gradient with a value of 90%, but the entire window still comes up transparent, with the menu bar slightly less so.

I've been tweaking with it and can't seem to get it to work. - Jan 07 2011
Just thought I'd ask...

I think it would be a nice feature to be able to change/enable opacity of only certain window elements, e.g. menubar, toolbar, etc.

Is this possible? - Jan 07 2011
Yeah. Some apps are already compatible, and the rest can be enabled with a script, I believe. That would probably open up a whole new can of bugs for you, though. :) - Jul 01 2010
Awesome.
Thanks for your never ending work on this great theme. It's come so far!
Just wanted to throw this out there, even though I really have no idea what I'm talking about:), but maybe Andrea Cimitan's code from the Murrine engine could somehow be used to enable opacity for the gtk apps? - Jul 01 2010
Not sure if v1.5 has been tested on KDE 4.5rc, but I've got a weird bug here.

When window opacity is enabled, and plasma is restarted, the plasma desktop shows up in the taskmanager and the entire desktop can be minimized and steal focus over other windows. This happens using both Compiz and Kwin. - Jun 30 2010

Not that I know of. There is the default metacity for ClearlooksRevamp, but it's not exactly the same.

I have no idea how to theme metacity. :) - Dec 25 2010
As far as I know there are no themes that do this. If your using compiz though, like I said, the trailfocus plugin will make inactive windows transparent. - Aug 18 2010
Are you thinking of the window decoration, or the windows themselves?

As for the windows, you could enable the trailfocus plugin for compiz in ccsm.

For the window decoration, you would have to alter a theme through the emerald theme manager. - Aug 17 2010

I've never tried it, but I think you can actually use QtCurve in gnome. If you go to the qtcurve download page on KDE look, there's a Gtk3 download version of it. - Nov 12 2010
My thoughts exactly. Be sure to give your compliments to it's creator. :) - Nov 10 2010
