Plasma Theme

Here's remake of the KDE 4.0 Oxygen theme. I thinks it's mostly complete. It is fully up to 4.10 standards. It contains elemnets of KDE 4.0 Oxygen theme and pdated with few pieces from KDE 4.7 and later Oxygen themes for elements not present in original theme.
All the credits for original concept and most of the artwork goes to the Oxygen team.
Several elements have been redone from scratch to use abilities provided by current plasma desktop. I have replaced most of the bitmap components with pure vector/SVG, This change resulted in better shapes and smoother transitions. Also all the scalable items like progress bar look much better now without visible stretches and misproportions.

While I have tried to make it as close to the original as it is possible, it is not identical to old one. Due to changes in plasma-desktop and how the things are handled it is not possible to make plasmoid configuration handle as it was in KDE 4.0.
Few items like analog clock and analog meter were replaced with current ones, as they fit the theme much better then original ones.
My theme also has thinner widget borders to not waste screen estate. Shadows got thinner too. Old ones looked weird with blur effect enabled, adding extra border around widgets with sharp edge instead of gentle fade they had to be. Now the shadows are still visible, but shouldn't be so annoying. Another change is translucent background used in "Folder View" plasmoid. Original theme used regular background, which looked way too heavy.
Pager is the blue-tinted one from current Oxygen theme, just because I like it more than the flat-white one.

I've decided to include colorful systray icons pack made by Kevin Kofler by default. Many thanks to him for this set :) If you want monochrome icons back, just rename or remove icons subddir located in this theme dicrectory.

Copy the content of the zip file into ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ for your user only or to the /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/ dir for system-wide installation (root priviledges required).

Bugs and possible TODOs:
- Worse buttons readability - unfortunately I had to make compromise I don't really like. There's no seprate setings for text color on buttons, entry fields (date in calendar, and some plasmoids (AkoNotes). I tried to make 'em all looking reasonably well, while keep text readable. There'll be a fix when plasma devs decouple those entries.

I hope you will enjoy it ;)

0.1 First release
0.2 Dialogs shadow trimmed - less pronouced outline with blur enabled
Included sources for shadow bitmaps
0.3 Fixed notification progress-bar, redone buttons, now they match panels. Changed some colors (now AkoNotes plasmoid is kinda usable). Updated icons, again thanks to K.Kofler.
0.4 fixed buttons height, now it's few px larger and much more readable.
"fixed" Lancelot top buttons - it's still ugly, but it's Lancelots fault, other themes hide ugilnes not showing background for normal buttons.
Improved transluent background, now it's all smooth without dark edges.
0.5 Verified KDE 4.10 compatibility, fixed groove in battery plasmoid/screen brightness slider, improved buttons in notifications/activites panel. Made colorfull plasmoid action/config icons (yay). Minor cleanup in svgsdefinitions.
0.6 fixed notifications background (it's black again :D ), made notifications expand arrow bright, even more colorfull actions icons.

Using this theme right now! :D Really feels like a natural evolution of the original Oxygen theme.

I'm glad you like it. I really tried to stay faithful to the original yet make use of most of the features provided by Plasma-desktop.

I don't suppose you, or someone else, could get the KDE 4..0/4.1 Oxygen Application Style (QT Theme) for 4.7/4.8? I kinda miss the way they had the scroll bars, mac-ish though it was.

Funny, I actually was going to do this, but then I realized it's probably harder than just ripping the files off an old Live CD or somesuch.

I guess you might try to bake something using aurorae engine. It uses SVG skins, 'tho it doesn't provide as much options as oxygen.
I believe it should be easiest way to get old oxygen look.

It's custom one based on WhiteWater, with slightly lighter background, plus matching colors set in bespin window decoration.

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.
