~/ refers to your home directory and . files are hidden, so to get to it in the address bar /home/myusername/.kde or show hidden files in the file manager.

Great!!!

PS: Can I ask you which icon theme are you using? And are you using a particular color scheme?

Thank you for providing us with this great theme

Thanks. Icon theme is the default Ubuntu one which works in KDE4. There is no colour scheme, just the plasma theme.

Thank you. No, I did not mean a color scheme for the plasma theme. I was actually asking if, on your computer, with this theme you use the default blue oxygen style or a specific ubuntu-like color scheme (or maybe a different style altogether, like qt)

I'm just using the default Oxygen theme at the moment.

Can I ask you another question, please.How hardcoded are the colours. I will try to explain myself. I would like to use this theme but with a different "color scheme" from ubuntu (i.e. blue tinted as opposed to orange-tinted). I know plasma themes are svg and have a "color file" where dolors are defined. Would it be enough to change it there (and maybe in other svg files) or is it hardcoded in some image-like files?

I hope the question is clear.... :-)

You can make a theme where the colours of the plasma theme change with the colour scheme but it has limitations, and the plasma theme needs an object name in the theme to tell it to change colours.

The main hardcoding of colours comes in the form of not being able to change colours per widget, like text colour, so design is limited to that in a way.

Thanks. My question, however, was specifically related to this theme: with this theme, if I substitute in all svg files the code for orange color with the code for blue color, will it be enough to make a blue-based theme or will there be still sume bitmap in orange that I need to change?

Sorry for not being clear. Thank you for taking time to answer me

The colour for this theme is set in the SVG as drawn in the svgz files, so what colours you see in there is what you get.

So, Pro's and Con's here.
Pro: Ubuntu (Unity) lovers will love this theme, no doubt.
Con: KDE4 lovers... not so much. no "glass" effects.

Having said that, wow, good job. Not a Unity lover here, but I see the potential in this.

KDE in 4.10 seems to be moving toward flatter widgets with smaller borders and this seems to be in that spirit. certainly looks very nice. as somebody who pretty much only likes ubuntu colors out of the entire distro XD i look forward to trying this.

Ubuntu has the worst default colors I have ever seen, those orange, purple and brownish colors are just plain hideous. Nothing against your work because you are doing a great job, awesome actually. Ubuntu colors, not so. :(

i don't like kde for all of that grey. This theme shows that you can have un-grey KDE. For me this image shows that I can try KDE in the future.

Not seeing the point here, you could always change the colors to your liking. The default grey colors and light colors are chosen simply because the human eyes see text better against it.

You can make KDE4 look like just about anything with any colour and little effort, it's that flexible.
