About Window Decor:

Window Decor is a simple program to change the Window look in BeOS without having to remember the sneaky key combination that puts Window Decor on the BeOS menu.

This version includes both BeOS and HAIKU versions.

Removed the need to have libncurses.so installed.

HAIKU r41581 changed the setdecor command-line tool.  This updates WindowDecor to work with the new changes.

NOTE: this progam does not include the decorators. it only chooses the active decorator installed on the system. Haiku r1a4 removed all but the default decorator due to the changes required to make stack and tile work for all decorators. At this time, this program accomplishes nothing for Haiku.

Window Decor now runs on Haiku.

There is a BeOS r5 app and a HAIKU app.

Must make a link to libncurses.so named libncurses.so.5 in the lib folder

What revision of haiku are you using? should work on gcc2 and gcc4 versions ... produced on a gcc2 hybrid install tested on both gcc2 and 4 hybrid systems.

I use the alpha 1 i remember... I egt often problems with gcc hybrids making yab apps, iit was every time better to use a gcc2 or gcc4 version and no hybrid. I dont know the lanuage you use for the app, but tis can be the problem.

setdecor did not function on r1a1 as I recall.

I use the alpha 1

This is a yab app. YAB was compiled on r1a2. Since r1a3 is just about to be released, I suggest updating your system. the appi calls have been changed from r1a1 and alot of new software compiled on haiku will no longer run on r1a1.

Haiku R1A4.1 includes this functionality in the Appearance preflet. Adding this setting program to Haiku will not add Decorators.

Most Decorators were removed when S&T was included in the default Decorator as all Decorators must now allow and work with S&T.
