Crystal is by far my favorite window decoration. However, ever since about KDE 4.8 I've noticed an odd issue when using it with the proprietary nVidia driver. Essentially, after opening several application windows, when I then maximize one of the windows (by double-clicking the titlebar) it takes about 2 seconds before it responds and then maximizes. I've experimented and I can say for certain that the issue only happens with the proprietary nVidia driver. I'm currently running version 310.44 of the nVidia driver, KDE 4.10.2, x11-server-xorg 1.13.3 and version 3.8.6 of the kernel.

I've never seen the issue with any of the following scenarios:
a) The open source Nouveau driver
b) The ATI fglrx driver (on my Radeon machines)
c) KDE effects turned off
d) Other window decorations (w/proprietary nVidia driver and effects enabled)

I tend to think that it might have something to do with how it draws it's window shadows, but that's just my gut feeling. - Apr 22 2013

It's great how deKorator allows you to completely customize the KDE window decorations. Unfortunately, with KDE 4.10, it doesn't provide a way to enable the window shadow effects. Would you possibly consider enhancing it to support windows shadows? DeKorator provides such a great option for creating your own window decoration themes, but it's a shame that it hasn't been updated in a while. - Apr 22 2013
