Description:

This is a dark translucent themepack.
I'm using COMPIZ as window manager and it looks somewhat different in KWIN.
I'm using Gentoo so I have included a *.svg file which is the shutdown dialog. Only difference is that I use the Gentoo logo.


Prerequisites
QtCurve packages
Emerald or smaragd

Install instructions.
1, Extract the downloaded *.tar.gz
In the extracted folder you'll find another *.tar.gz and you extract that one as well. Move the folder to /home/your_user/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme.
Depending on distro the exact location may vary but the folder goes to something/share/apps/desktoptheme.

While in /share/apps, you put the *.colors file in the color-schemes folder. If there is no folder called 'color-schemes' you go right ahead and create one.

For the Qtcurve you move that into the QtCurve folder which is located at: kde4/share/apps/QtCurve
If no such folder exists, create it!

To activate QtCurve you choose it from:
SystemSettings/Application appearance/Style and then you choose QtCurve from 'widget style'.


For the emerald theme, you just dubble click on it and import it to emerald theme manager.

If you want to make it available for all users on your system move all the files to
/usr/share/
and its corresponding folders.


Plasma Theme
The plasma i haven't made any original but i have picked what i liked of other themes and made a few changes to them. So to all the original authors a great thank and kudos for the brilliant job!


QtCurve
The Qtcurve i've assembled myself and is rather transparent so in order to utilize in this pack you need to have BLUR enabled in your window manager.


Color-Scheme
The color-scheme i also assembled and it's as you can see also very dark but with very clear strong colors so that all is very visible!

Emerald
As with the plasma i have only taken bits and pieces and made some alterations to it. Again, thank you :D

Would anyone happen to have the emerald, qtcurve and the color-scheme?

I had a little disaster and now they're gone.

Contents of the archive:
/dialogs - /icons -/lancelot - /wallpapers - /widgets
colors - metadata.desktop
There is no QtCurve folder nor a second archive to extract.
Maybe I'm missing something.

No you're right about that. I forgot to include them.

I've had a little disaster so now they're all gone so I'm hoping someone here might still have them :D

Thank you so much :D

I have been doodling a bit with bespin but QtCurve unifies it better with GTK2 apps. Just a f$%!*ng shame Gnome devs makes it impossible for QtCurve devs to unify it with GTK3 apps as well. Hopefully in the future that will be possible.
