I think I need to blame serenity windeco for making kwin crash.

How to reproduce: find any window. Go to the menu on the application logo / the themed menu icon.
Advanced => No Border.

And now kwin explodes. Happens only with serenity windeco of the ones I have tested.

Are there any plans/efforts to make a kde4 version of serenity?

/Sune - Nov 04 2007
I might mean the beos/b2 style. It was kind of cool. I put a virtual vote on 'please get it back'

The packages can in debian easiest be obtained by apt-get -t experimental install kde-style-serenity kwin-style-serenity

alternatively, the packages can be found on
where XX fits a two-letter abbrevation for your country, eg. de for Germany and us for USA

Happy serenitying

It is now possible (and have been for osme days) to download serenity in debian off debian experimental. It will be available from unstable (same packages) when debian etch is released.

(How do I get my 'half' title bars back as I had in version 1.4 ?) - Mar 14 2007

I hacked the build system to get buttons.h built at build time instead of using a preshipped one.

- and tastymenu is now on its way into debian unstable. - Nov 27 2007
It at least have been drastically removed. with 1.0.3 I couldn't run kicker with tastymenu for a day without having kicker eat up all my memory.

With 1.0.4 it has now been running for days and doesn't really show up in top.

Maybe it is time to try get it into debian proper. - Nov 24 2007

I can't seem to find the sources for buttons.h (it is generated by some pics according to, but these pics aren't shipped. And uic doesn't generate endian-safe files (so powerpc builds will be kind of screwed up here)

All the files generated from the .ui files does also seem to be already in the tarball and not regenerated on build time - isn't that also a problem?

Exact the opposite. highest number will win. That's why I suggested using "20" ;)

/Sune - Aug 13 2007

Why not just ship a override file in your package - like 20_debian_globe with appropriate content?

THis way you work with the infrastructure instead of hacking around it.

in order to be able to help, please be sure to provide the follewing informations:
distribution and version (eg. debian sid or ubuntu breezy)
kde version (eg. 3.4.3 or 3.5)
how you installed dekorator (eg. binary packages, built self from source, ...)
- if binary package, where did you find this package.

and what you excactly did to make it fail.

and backtraces are often useful for developers. kcrash should providing a backtrace.

and whatever useful other info. - Dec 31 2005
packaged for debian sid and uploaded to

deb ./

to your sources.list and then
'apt-get install kwin-style-dekorator'

and there you go. - Dec 31 2005
That made stuff work.

I am just refining a debian package and then uploading it. - Dec 31 2005

I heve made a .deb-package for debian unstable - and it installs fine, but but but... trying the themes just don't work:

What have I done wrong ? I have no window decorations now. - Dec 31 2005
The two debs provided on the link, one of them got no dependencies at all, the other one got dependencies impossible to fulfill.

The one withouth dependencies could be for any version, and right now there is incompability between debian sarge, debian etch and debian sid, so the dependencies are very importiant.

The other .deb is depending on kdelibs4 >= 4:3.4.2, which no longer exist.

I might soon be providing working pacckages for debian unstable, if there is a public demand ;) - Dec 29 2005

Hi! I really like this. I do, anyway, have one simple request; it would be nice if 'make distclean' was run before you made the tarball for all of us.

pusling@pusling:~$ tar xjf 29935-powder-0.6.tar.bz2
pusling@pusling:~$ cp -a powder-0.6/ powder-0.6.orig
pusling@pusling:~$ cd powder-0.6

I try to build it on debian unstable. it fails with ld not beeing able to find -lXext

When I run ./configure and in the Makefile in src, adds $(X_LDFLAGS) to line 372 everything works:
adding $(X_LDFLAGS) to the same line in breaks everything because of different automakeversions.
If I get building to work without manually interact in the Makefile, I might add it to - a extrarepo for debian unstable. - Oct 23 2005

It would still be nice to have the same keyboardmapping as in konsole.
