KDE4 - Smoother by half-left KDE4 - Smoother by half-left
A nice smooth plasma theme, inspired by a widget mockup [link]

Icons [link]

Wallpapers [link] [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_smoother.kcache

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.

Licence: GPL

Compatibility

KDE 4.10 recommended (If you use Kubuntu/Ubuntu 12.10, KDE 4.10 is in backports PPA repo, which I currently use)

Font Details

Aller Sans, 8pt, Sub-pixel RGB, Hinting: slight.

Design Details

Inkscape for widget SVG work, The GIMP 2.8 for preview composition.

There is none in that shot, it's just the plasma theme and widgets.
