KDE4 - Google+ by half-left KDE4 - Google+ by half-left
This is a Plasma theme based on the look of Google+ with Google colours in various elements.

Icons [link] [link]

Wallpaper [link]

GNOME-Shell version [link]

Instructions:

Extract the theme to /home/username/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ (hidden directory)

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_Google+.kcache and reapply the theme.

Important Notes

The theme will not look like the preview in some ways with older KDE versions due to new design options in KDE 4.10, specifically scrollbar thickness(control of this has been added for designers), add widgets panel(tasks don't theme this now, it's done in a different file, which is a good thing). It's nothing major but be aware that some things will look slightly different but nothing should be broken.

In the dark panel version, the text on tasks maybe blurry in some instances due to hard-coded shadows which change colour according to the text colour, one text colour can only be used here and has to be balanced the against light, dark parts of the theme due to theme limitations beyond my control.

It'll be real nice if you'd make a gnome shell or Cinnamon theme like this :D

Very beautiful and I like it.
But I got two suggestions:
1. Could you please add a icon of NetworkManager applet next time? I bet lots of guys using this tool. Hint: NetworkManager applet is rewritten in QML since KDE 4.11.
2. I prefer a purely flat one, which has no round corners. I tried to modify it myself but failed. I don't know how to edit a svg file apparently. :-(

Anyway, a masterpiece indeed!

Yeah, great theme but the blurry text makes it not usable unfortunately :( Is there no way to release another dark panel version without shadows used with the text? Maybe just normal text like how the produkt theme has it?

Not, like I said in the description, the text shadows are hardcoded, nothing I can do about it being a dark panel, light widgets

This is an awesome theme! I would use it if the text wouldn't be blurred on the dark panel.
