Description:

Velours is a dark plasma theme with a fuzzy texture and monochromatic icons.
It draws inspiration from Caledonia by Malcer (which it was originally a fork of) and openSUSE by sumski.

Since v3.0, it contains only original artwork.

It might not fit everyone's use case. Don't hesitate to ask for specific missing parts if need be.

A new branch was created for Plasma 5! If you were already using Velours under Plasma 5, I suggest you switch to the new theme. Currently, the only difference is that the icons were reworked to better fit the system tray. If you are using Plasma 4, you can also try it out if you are experiencing blurry icons.

Known issues (Plasma 5 only):
The notification tray icon is incorrectly stretched to 28x28 instead of 22x22. I reported it and it is already corrected upstream.
Also, there seems to be a bug that makes top and left panels display incorrectly. I'll publish a workaround for this soon.




Changelog:

9/7/15:
Added Plasma 5 branch with better system tray icons

20/6/15:
Added icons for media player system tray entry (in Plasma 5)

20/4/15:
The hover state of the task element was redesigned.
Selected item background gradient was softened.
Some icons were improved.

26/3/15 :
Moved to GitHub
Widget backgrounds were redesigned: the border radius went from 3px to 5px and a more opaque border was added. Other widgets were also remade/polished.
Many icons were redone and almost all of them now have dark borders to stay distinguishable against pale backgrounds.

19/01/15 v3 :
First complete release. All artwork from Caledonia has been replaced and the license changed from by-sa to by-nc-sa.

 Brilliant

Great job!
WiFi disconnected icon, KTorrent download icon and minimalistic look of that pesky desktop Tool Box are my favourites.
In a word: brilliant.

Thanks for the kind word!
I've been working on it a lot since the last release and I was about to release an update yesterday, but something went wrong and I lost almost everything. I'm currently trying to repair what was lost and I should be able to release it in a couple of weeks.

 Very nice theme

Thanks for your work, I really like your theme. I'm wondering what icon theme you're using

Thanks!
I made the icons myself specially for the launchers I keep in the panel and a few others (like KMail), they're not part of any specific theme (those in the desktop widget are from Breeze though).

That's a very nice plasma theme. Could you add other icons like Clementine and Owncloud?
Thanks. :)

Okay, I gave it a shot and it seems Clementine doesn't use the icon provided by the plasma theme. If you know a plasma theme that overrides it, please tell me.

I think the same is true for the ownCloud client, but its monochrome icon (you can turn it on in the settings) integrates nicely already.

 Plasma 5 theme looks great

This theme looks really good! Can you suggest any window decorations or color schemes that match well with this desktop theme?

Thx, Sam

I personally use a dark color scheme based on Obsidian Coast, but Velours should work fine with a light color scheme as well. The Breeze widget theme doesn't work very well with dark color schemes though, it's clear it was designed with only light colors in mind. Oxygen looks fine either way.
As for window decorations, I stick with Oxygen or Breeze as they offer the most customization options (and Oxygen allows tabbed windows).

So I guess I don't really have anything in particular to suggest.

 Top panel glitch

Confirmed, but only under Plasma 5. The plasma5 version of the theme run by Plasma 4 (which uses the exact same source svg for the panels) doesn't have that problem.

It also affects west panels.

It seems Plasma 5 doesn't draw the north-bottom element (but still allocates room for it) and ignores -mini elements altogether. The documentation for Plasma 5 mentions -mini prefixes so I don't think the feature was removed. I'll file a bug report.

In the meantime, you can replace widgets/panel-background.svg with https://www.dropbox.com/s/4bzmbnxf57mdusz/panel-background.svg?dl=1.
You'll lose the gradients but it'll work better.

Thanks for letting me know!

Okay, it turns out -mini elements are not supported by Plasma 5. I'll provide an update in a few days.

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.
