Description:

Huen creates a Plasma palette based on your current wallpaper. It has two modes of operation; automatic - generates palette by itself, good for running from a launcher on the panel; manual - displays a control panel for you to choose between three sampling methods.

Huen requires the development packages of Qt 5 and ImageMagick 6. To install:
sudo ./install.sh

Two menu entries should appear under Settings. N.B. If updating from previous version, you must delete ~/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/Huen to allow the new theme to be copied over. Edit "defs.h" to set your own text and background colours.

Very good. Had considered auto-changing but didn't come to a conclusion. e.g. highest saturation doesn't necessarily mean the best colour match. Another idea was to have 16 or 32 pre-defined 'good colours' and match the nearest one to the hue of the wallpaper. It something I'm playing around with.

Any thoughts?
