#REDIRECT [[Compiz#Installing a window decorator]]
The '''Emerald''' Window Decorator is a custom window decorator shipped with [[Compiz]] that allows for theming and full composite window decorations with the use of engines. Emerald allows for all sorts of different configurations and layouts of buttons, look, title bars and frames. Emerald Window Decorator is completely independent of any desktop, and you specify your own themes to use for it. The Decoration plugin must be enabled in order for Emerald Window Decorator to function.
