This is a plasma theme that uses system colors and is intended to present a simple, clean feel.

It may not be to everyone's taste, but hopefully someone finds this useful.

To install: It is now included with KDE. In between major KDE point releases, updates can be installed using "New Themes" in the Desktop Settings dialog.

Note: The shutdown dialog theme in the version provided here works only with KDE 4.1.4 and later.


2.0.3 sorry for the frequent small updates. Mild OCD keeps compelling me to fiddle...
- softened systray outline and systray expander outline. They looked a little harsh after working on Atelier.

- yelled at the focused task theme item to "straighten up and look right". Should look better now. :-)
- *very" minor tweak to analog clock.
- to make sure changes show up for KDE 4.2 users, the package now contains the svgz files for the changed items since the 4.2 was released. You don't have to do anything special. It should work like any other update.

2.0.1 *very* minor tweak to very slightly lighten the panel outline. Helps panel edges be a little less "line-y" on mid-tone to lighter backgrounds.

2.0 Ready for 4.2 release .
- Squeezed in a few more refinements to several components for 2.0. (2.0 is whatever gets released with KDE 4.2)

1.99 Updated in preparation for the 4.2 release. I'd like to acknowledge inspiration for updates to some components from the author of the super-great, uber-awesome Arezzo theme.
- Many changes to almost all components.
- Note: The version provided here on kde-look contains uncompressed SVGs so it will work with KDE 4.1.

1.3 (updated download file)
- Apparently the I never updated the download file for the last vesion so it never matched what's actually in 4.1. That's corrected now. (geez I'm an idiot...). I'm only marking it as updated so that those who may have screwed up the version that came with KDE 4.1 by installing from here (via GHNS) can restore it properly.

1.3 updated to match svn version:
- Updated task item theme (smaller borders)
- More substantial looking pager
- Updated system tray theme (inspired by the really, really good Arezzo theme)

1.2.3 updated to match svn version:
- Updated shutdown dialog to work with new button sizes.
- Slightly more translucent background.
- Minor update for tasks and pager.

- Added transclucent background (used by Folder View)
- Updated task item theme
- Updated clock hands and added hand shadows.

- Added systemtray.svg to overide visual inconsistency with default systemtray theme.

- Added shutdown dialog theme.
- Added pager theme.

- Updated taskitem theme to work with new theming code.
- Corrected a number placement issue on clock face and slightly misaligned glass.
- Improved panel highlighting for panel widths < 100%.
- Corrected to keep krunner theme working.

1.0.2 - Minor bugfix for corners of tooltip.

1.0.1 - Minor bugfix for topright element of panel (was only noticable with panel < 100% width).

1.0 - Ok, I think I'm satisfied with this one... for now... :-)
- Fixed HandleCenterScrew on clock.
- slight modification for dialog borders
- added different panels for west and east screen locations.

- Updated task item theming to fit in better with overall theme.
- Adjustments to clock face to improve balance.
- Updated analog meter.

- Lightened dialogs to better match colors used by style.
- Slightly modified task item theme
- New clock
- Fixed a couple minor visual bugs in panel background and dialogs.
- Submit for Plasma Theme Contest.

0.9.1: added task item theming (again, needs latest svn version of KDE).

0.9: A couple very minor pixel imperfections remain. (Inkscape svg rendering is a touch different from QT4 svg rendering).

Please remove black border if it's still there from opaque style. It looks ugly...

 Widget colors: buttons, text

Very good theme, all colors are what I need. The only problem, is silver buttons in widgets, and white text fields. They look alien, I thought they must be pink or whatever... in my color scheme. There is no such colors in systemsettings/appearance/colors!

 Taskbar font

Great theme, thank you.

However it would be more readable, if minimized windows had gray or semi-transparent font in the taskbar.
Could you add this?

Another problem I noticed:

The pager displays only windows' frames, so you cannot differ a maximized window from an empty desktop. Quite annoying :/

Windows should have a darker filling, or you should fix maximized windows frame drawing, so that it is visible.

You say that this theme uses system colors.

But the hidden panel glow (shown when mouse is near the screen edge) is always light blue. I have no such color in my settings.

Is it possible to change the color of this glow?

It should either be set to the selection color, or (even better) be configurable independently.

 aya + dark color schemes

 by ssahin on: Jan 16 2013
Score 50%

It is a very nice idea to let plasma use system color schemes. However, I have a problem in aya with dark color schemes.

If you select any dark color scheme in system settings; say obsidian with aya as the plasma theme, then, you will not be able to see text in the text box when you select 'add widget' from your desktop. The text is very light such that it does not allow you to see what you are typing. When I change to another theme, e.g. oxygen I can see the text in the textbox.

I installed the latest aya (from kde-look.org) locally in my desktop. I am not sure whether this is due to a bug in kde plasma or an issue related to aya theme though.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
