Description:

A modification to the original Air theme to improve text readability over dark backgrounds. The changes are only noticeable when using the "blur" desktop effect. Otherwise, the theme is identical to Air.

This theme was built to address KDE bug #278861 (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=278861).

Install by extracting the archive to ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/

Changes from original Air theme included with KDE 4.8.0, made using Inkscape:

4.9.0:
* updated Frosty Air using the Air plasma theme released with KDE 4.9
* added "oldbars" variant using the 4.8 version progress bars (which I think look better than the new ones)

4.8.0a:
* Created SVG for active taskbar item to fix the bad alignment at the right edge of the original pixmap version.

4.8.0:
./translucent/widgets/panel-background.svgz
* added 40 alpha to both stops in gradient 9725
* set the background for the panel-bottom and panel-right edge to L:255, A:215
* set the background for the panel-top and panel-left edge to L:225, A:90

./translucent/dialogs/background.svgz
./translucent/dialogs/krunner.svgz
* changed background opacity from 50% to 75%

I provided the download initially as a Dropbox link, but installation would fail silently in KDE's "Get Hot New Stuff" dialog. So, I am providing the links to MediaFire instead so that the GHNS dialog will at least redirect to the webpage.

i recently fixed the task svg item, as it had a 1 pixel wide vertical line towards the right of each item.

just informing you that you may want to copy it from kde master (projects.kde.org) and edit it, as it won't have that annoying line anymore.
