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

Icons and original design by :iconguillendesign:

G4 Background by Alexander-GG

Instructions:

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

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

Load the "SLAVE" colour scheme file into System Setting>Application Appearance>Colours>Import Scheme

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

Licence: GPL

Notes

Text colour has to be white on some widgets because it cannot be changed from widget to widget. Text shadows are hard-coded so a compromise had to be made with the text colour and the theme being light/dark. Plasma theme limitations I'm afraid.

Toolbar Customisation

It's simple in KDE4, just right click the toolbar, select "Configure Toolbars". In the right side window you will be able to select your toolbar items, click "Change Icon" which will allow you to select any icon for the toolbar item.

Update - 1.1 - 15th July 2012

- Fixed movement in the viewitem for widgets like folder view.
- Smaller scrollbar arrows.
- A few changes to the colour scheme.

Update - 1.1.1 - 16th July 2012

- Reversed top panel gradient.
- Top panel now renders properly, with shadow.

Great to here, Plasma is great for themes and here on dA it seems to be left out in that department.

Yeah, it is a bit complicated though, since you need to know about SVG. The good thing is that KDE have it documented so you can go and learn how to make plasma themes.

But there's a problem with the shadows:

Yeah, I don't know what that is. I've noticed it on the newer version of KDE, it's like the alpha is buggy or something.

Nice stuff!!!
I'm sorry that plasma limitations made you switch the panel of the past theme to the same colour of the widgets :(
Anyway....a solution for that is incoming in the kde world ;)
What do you think to have a desktop shell that can be customised trough style sheets???
Reply
:iconhalf-left:
half-left Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Thanks. No, I don't want to sit in a text editor all day to be honest, just a bit more flexibility with the text colours. The theme's widgets will have the background I want but some text on some widgets won't be ideal because it has to be white.

I opened a feature request for the text colour on kde forum time ago, no replies till now :(
Also i wrote to developers on IRC but they are not going to implement this, as they said(even if one confessed they had a discussion about it time ago).

Hehe, are you serious? You created the best themes for gnome shell by using css, and you don't have patience to write a style sheet on kde?? That's weird XD

Yeah well, the whole one colour design fits all seems to have been taken on even by GNOME3, such a bad way of designing stuff just to fit you own defaults.

Well GNOME-Shell themes are not ideally what I like doing(only did it because there was no other way to theme). I'm a digital artist so I prefer to work with Inkscape or GIMP, not text editors. It's nice to see the end result but I'd rather work in Inkscape all day than a text editor.

Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
I agree, i wonder why they create a desktop that allows customizations and then make it follow one color for the whole fonts.
:?

So you're an old-school artist! Well i understand your point. For the most i create stuff for personal use, and i'm not an artist, so i can accept compromises.

Because they use text shadows as a cheap get out, rather than having to code different text colours. It's also the fact that the default theme is the same colour so it doesn't matter.
