Going wild with KDE 4.1 themes.
Now KDE 4.1 is out, I've played around a bit with different themes. I've installed the KDE artwork package, and a couple of themes via GetHotNewStuff. KDE's coloring system has seen quite a lot of love, as has Plasma's theming engine. The results are quite impressive, as you can see in the screenshots.First off, a bright setup with full-width, pretty standard panel. The Plasma theme used here is Aya, I've made the window background colors a bit lighter, just for more intense shininess. Those bright colors also go quite well with the "Glassified" color scheme, but I found it lacking some 'whitespace'. The screenshot shows some integration bits as well, the context menu offers to install the package using Ubuntu's gdebinstaller. The GTK+ theme blends in nicely with the colors I've set up. (Without me even tweaking it).
The Norway color scheme combined with the Aya Plasma theme. I've made the panel shorter, centered and a bit higher. People seem to like it that way as well, though I don't understand what the fuzz about such panels is. It tends to create dead corners, and what's better than slapping your mouse bottom-left and typing into kickoff? The colors are nice and warm, and some utilities such as a calculator, online dictionary and calendar can be found on the desktop.
