SteampunK Light Color Scheme

Downloads:  597
Submitted:  Dec 15 2012
Updated:  Mar 30 2013


This item is a part of Steam-Powered Linux KDE theme set.

The idea is to apply steampunk style to every themeable part of KDE-based distro. Any constructive feedback is highly appreciated. I will try to implement your propositions/fix bugs once I have spare time.

Parts of this set currently available:
KDM: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=142139
KSplash: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=142138
QtCurve: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=148276
Dark color scheme: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/SteampunK+Color+Scheme?content=148277
Light color scheme: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/SteampunK+Light+Color+Scheme?content=155868
Wallpapers: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Steampunk+Wallpapers?content=149320
Plasma Desktop theme: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=157926

You can see KDM and KSplash demo video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3ubaXe8wDE
New video will be recorded as soon as the majority of work is done.

This color scheme looks best with SteampunK Light theme for QtCurve

 I like--but there are problems

I like this color scheme a lot but the text in Paste is unreadable. Go to Add Widgets and select Paste (not PasteBin). Add some Names and Paste Text. Ideally the names are visible and the Paste Text is only visible when hovered.

In Firefox when hovering over a link the text is shown on the bottom left. The background is dark and the text is black, making it difficult to read.

In Dolphin I like to have the background of alternate lines visibly different. This helps me to to not loose my place when I have Dolphin set very wide. In split view mode the active panel should have this while the inactive panel can have the effect muted. In fact this helps me to remember where I am.

I have one Dolphin icon for this regular version and another set as root. In this root version many color schemes are painted differently before one goes into split screen and when you come out of split screen. Yours now does not have contrasting alternate lines but this effect may appear if you introduce contrasting lines.

These changes would make for a very good desktop.

Thanks, George Dvorak

Thank you very much for the feedback. I found it quite difficult to create a color scheme other than black-and-white based that will look good for all applications as there are a lot of application that use their own scheme or even mix their with system's making it unusable in some ways. So I was really hoping for some feedback that will help me to improve original scheme. If you are currently using this color scheme and want to help me improve it, you can play with different colors instead of the one you didn't like and let me know of the results.

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.
