So I got sick of the incredibly boring grey standard KDE theme that comes with KDE/Kubuntu. Its not actually a bad default colour theme, but it needs to be workable and appealing to pretty much all, so that by definition makes it somewhat boring.
So, I went and made something similar to my jussi01-darktheme for quassel, only this time for KDE. I took the “Dark Translucent” theme and gave it some modification – and the results are below.
Its still a work in progress, but as I use it more the small things will get sorted out.
EDIT: One of the Key things that many dark theme authors overlook is using a text colour other than white. White on a Dark background is actually quite hard on your eyes, and by using a soft Yellow/orange/beige, It makes it much nicer on your eyes.
I will upload this at some point soon, but there is a bug in the KDE uploader that doesn’t allow me to sign in to opendesktop. Lets see if I can get that worked out soon.
