A port of the amazing Appows window decorations to Aurorae.  I've redrawn every pixel in SVG format, so they aren't 100% exact, but they're very close.

I'd love to use the Peek theme but copying it to where you've suggested doesn't work for me on Plasma 5.6. Is there a way I can get this working?

Why are so many themes not designed to work with the window buttons on the left? Many people use Linux with the buttons on the left...
looks great! thanks

How can I use this in kde 4.12.1 ?

Just extract and copy all individual folders to ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes.  Make sure that the /aurorae/themes directories exist first, and if not, just create them.
in my home i have only .kde4 folder. it's the same thing?

Not completely sure, but it should be.  Are the other directories present in that folder?  (e.g. /share/apps/....)
In .kde4 there are 5 directories:
Autostart
cache-francesco-pc
share
socket-francesco-pc
tmp-francesco-pc

In share:
apps
autostart
config
icons
in apps there are many directories...

That's the right one!  Just copy the folders to .kde4/share/apps/aurorae/themes/.  Like I said before, you may have to create the /aurorae/themes/ directories.  The themes will show up in window borders in system settings after copying.
works...thank you so much ;)
