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).

 Calendar's applet and colors

 by boludo on: Dec 17 2008
Score 50%

I love this theme!!
At last I can have a small panel :)

Besides, it looks very polished.

I have a problem with the calendar applet, though. I just can't see the days, and I've tried a few different color schemes.

You can see it here:

What is the color scheme you use in the third shot anyway, since it is mostly what I tried to achieve?

Thanks again for your work on this theme. I now love KDE4's looks much more :)

Thanks much for the feedback. I'll have to take a look at this calendar issue you're having. In the svn version of KDE I was running this problem didn't show up so I'll svn up and check. What color scheme were you using?

In the third screen shot the color scheme I used was Magma (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Magma?content=79053)

I'm running 4.1.82. If you're using svn and checked out after that tag, maybe it's fixed already, yet it only happens with this scheme out of all I tried.

I'm using Obsidian Coast right now, but it doesn't matter what I choose, the problem remains.

It's not affected either whether I use a composited desktop or not.

Thanks again ;)

Unfortunately I haven't been able to replicate the problem you're having. I updated the first screenshot to show what it looks like on my day old svn version of 4.2.

If others are having this problem perhaps they might supply more details that might help me figure out the problem your having. Otherwise I hope you're problem goes away with the next 4.1 daily update.

I have a question. I would like to change the aspect of a taskbar item receiving the "attention" event. Currently, when I receive a message in a kopete window that doesn't have focus, it looks like this:


But I would prefer it to look like a focused item:


As I am not a plasma theme expert, I wanted to ask what I should change to get the desired result (an svg file maybe?)

Thanks for your help,

The svg file handling tasks theming is tasks.svg in the widgets folder. If you open that file, delete elements with the "attention-" id prefix, make a copy of the elements with the "focus-" id prefix then rename the id of these new elements to "attention-topleft", "attention-top", etc. Save the file and reload the theme by switching to another theme and back.

Hope this helps.

 White shadows

KDE 4 fun

I find this theme one of the best.

Only one thing makes me avoid using it: the effect of the white shadows in fonts is kind of unpleasant, doesn't convince me mainly in the taskbar.

May be a soften shadow or not shadow at all in taskbar should fit better and white fonts with dark shadows in the desktop could be better even the overall theme is not dark.

Is it possible to change those settings manually? Thank you

The text and shadow rendering is handled by the widget itself (in this case the tasks widget). Perhaps they'll add to the tasks widget an option to change the text color or not show a shadow (like the folderview currently does). It's an option I wouldn't mind myself. :-)

I don't use this theme for the same reason. White shadows are strange and it is very annoying.

Hope you find a solution. Cheers.

As a whole theme's almost ideal, but please think of progress-bars design in future releases… maybe something kinda liquid glass (nearly flat, not drop-shaped) should look better?

P.S. And pls think of scrollbars design in next releases: when scrollbar is small its empty metallic surface makes it look like some button.

 minimized windows

First, I do not understand why major themes are not tracked at bugs.kde.org. Any reason for this?

Minimized Windows are not distinguished enough. I can't see at first glance which windows are active.

 How does this work?

I like it.

My question is: Can you please point me to an explanation of how this works.

Also, is there a way to increase the transparency of the Panel (which is 100% Opaque)?

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.
