This is the first stable release of my Aubergine dark theme set for Plasma 5. Its main colour is dark violet, the same one as the vegetable. It combines well with greyish colours, as you can see on the screenshots.

In this page you can download the Aubergine theme for the Plasma 5 shell (based on Breeze-Dark and Nightshade)

Other files can be downloaded from the KDE store to match this Plasma theme:

* the Aubergine colour set for windows and applications
* the Aubergine theme for QtCurve
* an optional desktop background (gray-strips.png). It can be downloaded along with the Plasma theme.

As seen on the screenshots, you can also download the following:
* font Exo2 medium for the whole desktop. It is available here:
* font EaDesigner for the digital clock. It is available here:
* the Papirus icons theme. You can download it from the KDE store here:

Please note that this is an alpha version, so many inconsistencies may appear. Feel free to gently get in touch with me in case there is something wrong :-)
