Disable Stupid Blue Glow in KDE


I can't stand KDE's default blue glow. Here's how to disable it. I'm using Oxygen for window decorations, but the procedure should be the same for everything else.

System: Kubuntu 13.10 x64, KDE: 4.11.2

  • Start/K Logo > System Settings
  • Workstation Appearance, under Workstation Appearance and Behaviour
  • Window Decorations > Configure Decoration
    • The decoration in use is highlighted
  • Shadows (tab)
  • Active Window Glow (uncheck)
  • OK and close out of any remaining windows

And here is the same window without the glow!
