I started to work on a new theme engine for window decoration. The goal is to make deco themes as easy as Plasma themes. So it’s using Plasma technologies, that is FrameSvg 😉 Well here is a screenshot of current state:
The decoration background is based on Air’s translucent background and the icons… well you see I’m not an artist. And there is only a minimize and a close button. As you can see it uses KWin’s new ARGB decoration and the theme paints it’s own shadows. The engine does not yet really support opaque decorations that’s one of the left todos. But it’s thought with ARGB decos in mind 🙂
Currently two things are still missing: a name and example themes. So if you have ideas for names please leave a comment and if you are interested in creating a theme, please contact me.
Ah I have not yet committed any code into SVN, but you will soon find the engine in playground. There are some blockers (like the name) which have to be fixed before I want to share the code.
