Description:

Blue sky theme based on abstract art is fully transparent with the slight drop shadow for better visibility. This theme contains the most elements that you need for general purposes and it's absolutely compatible with the most recent versions of KDE. Since this theme uses the gradients with color tone from dark to bright blue, you'll able to use it with your favorite color scheme or wallpaper. I hope you like it.

Note: Difference between normal and alternative version is that the normal version don't have a kicker background.

Still excellent, still my favourite & goes with practically every wallpaper I have ( & I have 900+ )

Still think a green version would go nicely as an option

 Interesting history / lineedit / tray icons?

 
 by janet on: Sep 4 2012
 
Score 50%

I now have five different "Blue Sora" themes on my system (well, it seems I like it...) and they all look different and they all look nice. Really, before I update I clone the old theme, you'll never know what comes next. And all versions have their special goodies. And from time to time I craft "my" Blue Sora from all versions (e.g. I don't like the flowers that much but prefer the lines from version 0.3.).

I admit I don't see any other change in 1.9.3 (compared to 1.9.2) than the slightly other color shading. But the one from 1.9.2 looks more interesting and fresh so I'll keep that.

Could you maybe make the linedit.svgz a little darker? It's a bit hard to read the white text on the light blue. Or is it possible to use a darker font for the lineedit fields?

And how about some slightly light blue systemtray icons so that they match the arrow for the hidden entries?

It's funny to hear that someone collected different versions of one theme. By the way it's good for comparing. Anyway can you put a screenshot for lineedit to explain the problem?
About tray icons, I'm not sure if any color except for white looks good but I will give it try and if it doesn't look good I'll change the color of the arrow to white.

Here is a screenshot of e.g. the AppMenu widget, the search box uses lineedit:
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/lineeditvlj7f9zowk.jpg

It was no problem while the text was black but now with white it really is hard to read. If the lineedit background would be a little darker it would be better.

BTW: Do you still have the last version that had the background image in kickoff? It looked very sleek but you updated too fast so I couldn't save it.

OK I'll upload an alternative version with kickoff background on.

About lineedit I think you little confused, you must change your color scheme.

Have a nice day.

 Clock font

How do you set the clock font in the panel? I mean, how do you get the large size?

You mean "branding" right? branding is placed in "/home/user name/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme/Blue_Sora/widgets/branding.svgz"

I am not sure if it is the branding, probably not. I mean what font are you using for the time widget in the panel (bottom-right corner) and how do you make it bigger than the system's ordinary font size?

You can't use the regular texts in plasma theme since you don't know if the other have the same font or not, you must convert them to object. The object you talked about called "branding". the dimension of branding is 80x15 pixel.

Hmm. Seems a bit odd to me though, because you can change the font for the digital clock widget in the widget's settings. I saw the branding.svgz file you mentioned and it showed only the "Blue Sora" logo text. I think there is a miscommunication here because I was asking about the font for the digital clock widget in the bottom-right corner on the panel.

Yes. Not just to change the font, I know how to do that, but to change the font size. Also to know which font you are using in your screenshot.

 More opaque panels?

 
 by msx on: May 9 2013
 
Score 50%

I love the sleekness of this theme, specially how Kickoff does look - it should be renamed to Kickass.

Now, what i find really annoying the almost totally transparent panel that makes pretty difficul to read apps names sitting in the taskbar as well the icons from the systray.

I think a more opaque panel -like the background of the systray's widgets gradients- but yet retaining some transparency would be a _killer_.

Tnx anyway for this great theme.

I agree with you. I must find a way to fix this problem (maybe more opaque elements like what you said?)
Stay tuned for further updates!

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.
