Description:

A Plasma theme to match my QTStep QtCurve theme, and any other oldish-looking theme there may be. It's color-scheme aware (meaning it will use the application color scheme set in system settings), but there's still two versions, one for brighter themes with stronger highlight shades and one for darker themes with weaker highlight shades. I included the 'source' version of the theme, in case you want to tinker with it, it contains scripts to generate color-scheme-aware and translucent versions of everything.

Man, this is very good. Sad for me that i can't find any window decoration for plasma 5 to match this theme, for example like motif in CDE. It's even hard to find some cool oldish icon set.
But yet, thanks for really good theme!

Thanks!
As a matter of fact, i am working on a matching aurorae decoration right now. Aurorae is a bit limited, but i'm trying to come up with something.

Aurorae still don't support that new global menu button. That's really sad.
