Ok, and you suggest to substitute compositte that is the way to go with a cpu based thing. Whats the next thing? go with nv+mesa instead of nvidia for 3d rendering? :P

You are wrong. How would you play OpenGL games with composite? Or watch your tv-tuner? Or maybe just work without X crashes? You say that composite is better and more efficent - you're right here. But these are just useless words when we have no stability. Kwinshadow is great since it can be turned on by default with no trubles and worries.

Then you mentioned, that you are unsure about qt and kdelibs versions. Personally I tested kwinshadow on qt 3.3 and kdelibs 3.3.1 through 3.5.5. If you have old or modified version of qt and kwinshadow will kill your window manager — then just reinstall qt! What can be simpler! - Jan 25 2007

Well, maybe I didn't say it clearly:
There are no patched binaries for kde 3.4.x or 3.5.x. We only have a patch for kde 3.2/3.3 (source) and patched binaries for kde 3.3 for debian 3.1. I just used this binaries and it turned out, that kwin 3.3 is compatible with kwin 3.4-3.5 and the latest qt3 - THIS was surprising!
So, if you'll modify the source patch for the latest kde version - this will be wonderful and more elegant way. - Jun 19 2006

Yes, this patch can not be applied to kdebase 3.5.x sources, unless you'll dig into source and modify the patch.

Surely, you'll need to backup your current kwin libraries before replacing them with modified ones. Do the following:
1. Open Konqueror as root and navigate to where your kde is installed (ex. /usr or /opt/kde3)
2. make a search for libkdeco* and *kdeinit*kwin*
3. Add all found results to an archive using Ark (or something) without any subfolders - just a list of files
4. Do the same with 'prefix'/lib/kde3 and kconf_update_bin folders. Then create another archive with your current kwin* files found in 'prefix'/bin - you'll get 4 acrhives in the end.
5. Now you are ready for kwinshadow. When you replace libkde* libraries windeco will crash - don't worry, this is normal.
6. Restart kde. Now everything should work and you'll get an extra tab in kde control center, under Windows Decorations section.

IF IT DOESN'T WORK, OPEN YOUR BACKUP ARCHIVES AS ROOT, ensure to set Ark to overwrite any existing files and simply unpack them to 'prefix/lib, 'prefix'/lib/kde3, 'prefix'/lib/kconf_update_bin and 'prefix'/bin respectively

This is completely safe! - Jun 19 2006

You can see a linspire clear style on my screenshot. Strangely, kwinshadow hasn't ripped it off, and windeco, which was originally compiled for kde 3.5.2, still works!
You can take it here:

Have just tested it on KDE 3.5.3, running on SUSE 10.1 - ALL WORKS FINE!

Currently, you'll have to unpack this archive and copy files to /opt/kde3/... folders manually. I know, this is ugly, but it takes not more than 3 minutes anyway... - Jun 18 2006

I see, there's plenty of downloads,maybe someone could rebuild this theme into xpi? I'm just a bit nervous, that Everaldo's work is displayed like "modern" theme.
Well, no disappointment at all, though... - Dec 19 2005

I want to defend the author of this photograph.
Why does it have to be related to KDE each time? There are plenty of wallpapers without any logo, without tux, and still they fit the KDE desktop perfectly! More than that, look at other wallpapers here, at kde-look: you'll find lots of simple gradients with logos in the center. Yes, they are KDE-related, but they are ugly! - Sep 12 2005

Do you know, whether it's legal to extract Crystal Clear icons for Linspire 5? I don't know if they are GPL licensed. - May 01 2005

I think that your skin could me much better if you styled it for original Duke Nukem 3D, withy its pixelled old graphics and stuff. I personally hate Manhattan Project and later releases of DN. - Mar 01 2005
