KDE4 - Elune by half-left KDE4 - Elune by half-left
This is a theme based on Elune

Special thanks to :iconminhtrimatrix: for the permission to make the theme for KDE4.

Icons [link]

Wallpaper [link]


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_Elune.kcache


If you are using a 2D desktop(not OpenGL accelerated with desktop effects on) you will find a folder named "light-panel". Copy the "icons" folder inside and overwrite the one in the theme directory and copy the "arrows.svgz" into the "widgets" folder, overwriting the file in there. These are dark assets for the opaque panel in 2D mode. Delete the cache file as said above if you have any problems and things don't change.

Elune style menu icons are in the "extra" folder(right click>Application Launcher Settings to change the menu icon).

Hey, I've noticed some bugs/problems/whatever that seem to be particular to this theme...
If the panel is higher than 24 pixels, there is a 1px completely transparent gap under it, and sometimes I can click through it and the regular desktop menu appears. Only happens if the panel is on the bottom.
Also, if the Outline desktop effects plugin is turned on, the outlines are a solid color, not transparent like they are supposed to be (?). Distro is openSUSE with KDE 4.10, if it matters.

Thanks, just tracked down the issues, will do an update. If you're watching me you will receive a message about the theme being updated.

Thanks, the outline is nice now, but the 1px gap is still there. Here's a screenshot: [link] Maybe it's a KDE bug then?

Strange, I don't see that but yes it maybe a bug and the svg graphics is the same as the other themes.
kexolino Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013
I guess I'll file a bug then, and see what they say.

I wouldn't bother, it's a third party theme and it could be something I might find later on. I've actually reproduced it but having trouble tracking down just what exactly is causing it so you have to wait.

Ok, great :)

For some reason the theme doesn't show up in the desktop settings even though I've placed it in ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/. And there's no ~/.kde/cache directory to delete.

I'm using KDE 4.10. Any ideas on what I could do?
paldepind Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013
I figured it out. In openSUSE you'll have to put it in ~/kde4/ instead of ~/kde/

Weird, is the folder the same as the zip?
