Plasma Color Schemes

This DeepBlueGold color-scheme is the second in a three-part (Gold) series. The DarkRedGold and BlackGold schemes are posted here with the follow links:



The BlackGold scheme has also been uploaded (see below). This theme needs the newer kde4 styles to look as intended. It looks best with either Oxygen, Nitrogen, Ozone, or Bespin KDE4 style and can be used with any window decoration. The color schemes rely on the color handling properties of KDE4 and will look much to dark with older styles. If you have not changed your style in systemsettings, then you will be fine.

To install, simply open system settings -> Look & Feel -> Appearance -> Colors and choose 'Import Scheme...' and navigate to where you downloaded the file, select it and click 'OK.' The color-scheme will then appear in your scheme list and selecting in and choosing 'Apply' will complete the process.

Note: KDE4 has the ability to retrieve themes directly from by choosing 'Get new Schemes' while in the 'colors' page of systemsettings.

Same deal as with the RedGold theme, if you like it, go vote for it :-)

The screenshots above are a 500x250 screenshot, a 800x500 screenshot and the third is one of my old favorite KDE wallpapers in 1440x900 resolution that works well with the color-scheme. Just about any of the darker background will work well with the scheme. You can download the background above by either viewing it and rght-clicking it and saving it to your computer, or, depending on the browser you use, you may be able to simply rt-click it and use the option of setting the picture as your background.

I hope you enjoy it!

I never liked or used dark color schemes until I came across this one! Now it's on my main system. Thanks!

This scheme looks absolutely gorgeous! (as do your 2 other themes). Thanks a lot for your effort. ;)
