SteampunK QtCurve theme

Description:

This item is a part of Steam-Powered Linux KDE theme set.

I downloaded the file with Firefox instead of Chrome and got the correct file ('.qtcurve' extension instead of '.bin'. Looks great!

Hello again. As I stated in the subject, I got the colors but not the wood texture. How do I get this?

Nevermind. Installed it thru the KDE system settings installer. Great job! I'm not a fan of the color light blue. So far I've changed my wallpaper, splash screen, and login screen to the steampunk ones. Now I working on the pointers and icons! I'm not quite a Linux noobie, I've dabbled with Linux on and off for several years, but am now ready to make the full commitment to Linux!

Love your theme but I can't install it. I get thru the first 5 steps but when I try to import the file (SteampunkLight.bin) from my download folder, it doesn't show up in the file dialog window.

Contrast

Looks great, and it's nice to finally have a QtCurve theme/color scheme that looks good with your other SteampunK works. My only complaint is the contrast of the text on the buttons is too low. Otherwise, awesome work!

It is because I used the same color for window text and button text. Some of the buttons have the color of window background (they don't look like buttons until you hover mouse over them), so I needed something that is contrast to both button color and window color. However, I can change button color.
Could you please go to Color Settings/Colors/Common Colors and set Button Background color to #FFEED0. Will it look better? Or may be you have better proposition? I just made this scheme, so haven't worked with it much, so any feedback is more than welcome.

Thanks!
For now, I'm not thinking about it. I'm not a designer at all, while drawing icons requires some artistic talent :) May be I'll search for icons that will look fine on this theme set after I finish Plasma theme

Not offended :) I created it to have windows colored as the rest of Steam-Powered Linux themed elements and on my desktop it looks fine.
But of course with other wallpapers, color schemes and applications on another desktop it may look not so good.
Could you please tell what is that you don't like in this theme?
