Since switching to Electron, does it still need the Qt dependencies? - Aug 16 2017

Plasma Themes by MirceaKitsune 13 comments

I'm using KDE+Plasma 4.
The style for the search box is styled by the theme. Examples in other themes include Colorbit: button text on a light gray background w/gradient, Doomsday (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Doomsday?content=159938): uses white text on a black background, Aya: uses button text on a (semi-transparent?) medium gray background.

I'm not sure where the background for the search/input box is defined, but I'm guessing it's an svg file since some styles use gradients or custom borders. - Mar 13 2015

Very nice theme, I like it a lot (I'm a fan of plasma themes which follow the desktop color scheme, which I customize heavily).

I do run into a problem when using white/light text on dark backgrounds with this theme: text entry boxes (like the search box in the Add Widgets panel or Homerun) have a (nearly) white background, and the white-on-white is unreadable.
Is there a way to change that to something more neutral (or preferably use the view background color from the color scheme)? I imagine that if it can't be set up to pull from the color scheme then using a medium grey should be sufficient so that it can be usable with either white/light or black/dark text. - Mar 12 2015

Love it! Love it! Love it!
The backdrop is perfect, love the poses - each couple has their own personality, I want to be there, too; dancing some tango nice and smooth. - Sep 27 2011

Glad you like it.

I've never really liked the bland greyscale used by most color schemes.
I think this one gets just the right tone for the blue where it isn't bland greyscale, but isn't hurts-your-eyes bright. - Jun 29 2011
Ok, thanks for the reply.
I tried out the tiled background, and that works fine, but still suffers from the same won't-remove-the-file bug as the other setting. - Mar 22 2011
I've been playing around with using different images for the window background (some examples: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/DomQT?content=139732 http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/Textured+Gray?content=140094 http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/Textured+Tan?content=140090)

A bug that I ran into is that when you select one file for the background (and apply it) then select a different file for the background, it doesn't actually switch the stored image. The workaround is to delete ~/.config/qtcurve/style-bgnd-img.* then go in and pick the new image.
A couple of features which would be nice: scale image to window size (may be infeasible due to cpu usage) and tile image. - Mar 21 2011

QtCurve by airdrik 3 comments

There's a bug in qtcurve with the background images - when you try to change the background image, it doesn't actually replace the stored image with the new image. (I need to file a bug report, but haven't gotten around to it yet)
The work-around is you need to browse to ~/.config/qtcurve/ and delete style-bgnd-img.*, then re-select the new config. - Mar 20 2011

I really like how this one turned out - at a distance (or when looking at the thumbnail) it looks like a flower. Nice mixture of purple and green with the pink highlights. - Dec 07 2010

I really like what you've done in this iteration of the theme.
One problem I have with this theme is that the border needs some love. The bubble in the middle of the title makes the black title text practically unreadable, and the titlebar itself (in particular the buttons) is rather small and not as elegant-looking as the rest of the theme.

The rest of the theme looks wonderful, thank you! - Sep 25 2009
