Description:

Serious theme for serious work.

Have you tired from shiny colorful plasma themes? Try this one. The basic idea: transparent widgets without visible borders, flat items, minimum of rounded corners, no gradients, only gray and cold colors. This theme should work fine even with disabled Desktop Effects (see Compositor Settings in System Settings).

Have in mind that Panel widget in this theme is not transparent and this was done intentionally.

Enjoy!

>Hei, how can i install this theme.

There are few ways...
For example (in KDE >= 4.4.5):
a) launch System Settings
b) Style ---> Workspace ---> Get New Themes...
c) use filter to find 'serious' and click on install button and close this dialog window
d) select theme in list of local themes and click Apply
e) restart plasma:
kquitapp plasma-desktop && sleep 3 && plasma-desktop && exit
f) enjoy

Good luck.

metadata.desktop file is invalid and the theme does not install in KDE 4.4 RC2.

I have fixed it locally and I can send you a valid .desktop file so you could repackage it to make it work.

I'm surprised this theme is rated so low. With transparency on, it looks amazing.

Thank you. I added a screenshot. But the basic idea was just to use transparent plasmoids without using "compositing".
