KDE4 - Carbon by half-left KDE4 - Carbon by half-left
This a KDE4 plasma theme I did many years ago, now bringing it with enhancements to KDE4 dA users. Enhancements include, vector shadows(not bitmaps), cleaner and more sharp design across various widgets, improved widget background design for better scaling.

The theme comes with a colour scheme if you want to use it, just load the file "Carbon" into System Settings> Application Appearance> Colours>Import Scheme

Conjure Essence Green by submicron


Token Icons
[link]

Instructions:

Extract the theme to ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/

Select the theme in System Settings>Workspace Appearance>Desktop Theme>Theme

If the theme doesn't show right for some reason, delete the cache file ~/.kde/cache (machinename)/plasma_theme_Carbon.kcache

Licence: GPL

Update 1.1 - 18 June 2012

- Added cleaner analogue clock design(old one is alternative)
- Fixed glitch on horizontal scrollbar.
- Added background to translucent folder.
- Used Air selection viewitem(folder view) because silly naming + sign doesn't work in the object properties.

It's not an icons setup for KDE, you have to change the icons manually just by right clicking the apps.

Did you just go through and change all of the icons individually? Sorry for all of the questions :/

This is really nice. The analog clock kind of scares me though. I'm not sure why, it's just scary-looking.
