Description:

My first experience with Plasma themes. I created this in lack of finding a theme to my liking, which I wanted to include: An elegant and thin widget design, flat panels without gradients, transparent backgrounds, and most of all support for custom colors. Since Androbit is a beautiful theme and freely licensed, I decided to modify it into something that would fit those characteristics.

Colorbit is a theme based on Androbit with several modifications. Gradients have been removed from panel backgrounds while maintaining detail and the same elegant design. Transparency was set to 50% on all backgrounds for good visibility with Blur compositing, and 75% when blur or desktop effects are off. Panels and widgets use system colors, matching the same appearance as Oxygen and Oxygen Transparent with any color scheme. I also included the flat icons from the Breathe theme, modifying new ones to match their appearance.

Original Androbit theme by Makay József, licensed GPL: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=123524

Breathe icon theme by BugsBane, licensed GPL: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php?content=133873

I also used the power button icon by darrenbeck, licensed PD: http://openclipart.org/detail/173106/power-button-by-darrenbeck-173106

The modifications in Colorbit were done by me (MirceaKitsune) and this theme is also licensed GPL.

Changelog 2 years ago

v1.0 (15-02-2013):

- Initial release.

v1.1 (13-03-2013):

- Optimized for KDE 4.10.

- Removed transparent gradient shadows for opaque elements, as KDE is not meant to render those without compositing.

- Made the analog clock less shiny and transparent for more clarity.

v1.2 (15-07-2013):

- Fix opaque elements, which went unnoticed due to previous versions of KDE not applying them properly.

v1.3 (02-08-2013):

- Make button.svg transparent. Fixes white text over white button when using a dark color scheme (which was unreadable).

- Optimize glow effects and make widget design slightly more matte.

- Different brightness between "hover" and "selected" windows on the task manager.

v1.4 (27-11-2013):

- Replace or tweak a few widget elements.

v1.5 (14-09-2014):

- Add icons for the new network manager widget.

- Further reduce glow on panels, to maintain a nice flat style.

- Compress all svg files to svgz, to make the theme as light as possible.

v1.6 (25-10-2015):

- Colorize background elements correctly using ColorScheme classes, instead of using a hint.

v1.7 (02-06-2017):

Use correct element format in panel-background, old one still included for consistency as panel-background-old. Remove custom icons, as I cannot keep them up to date against changes in the software.

I believe I used a custom color scheme when I made the screenshot. It looks better with other colors so try out different ones.
