Spoons Original
Plasma Desktop Themes
Score 79%
Description:

So, whatever the author of Slim Glow thinks when stating that it is 'the oldest Plasma theme still in production', it is nothing more than a lie! (Yes, I'll have to change the text in the default screenshot of Slim Glow :) )

Spoons is the first custom Plasma theme ever made. And since the old KDE's default theme (in 4.0) is no more, Spoons is in fact the oldest :)

Love the theme.

Only thing is that my kmenu has a nasty thick black border around it when using this theme, which makes the text of 'favorites' 'applications' and 'computer' etc undreadable, and makes the menu fatter and uglier than it should be.

Anyone know how to fix this?? Its like there is a double border around the menu.

Great redo of a great theme.

Possible to tell me how to remove complete transparency from Notes? I use different colors for different types of data. Tried using a different theme's Notes (via System Settings / Advanced / Desktop Theme Details), but when I apply the Customized Theme your panel gets messed up.

Also, is there any way to change the background color of the inactive categories in the Kickoff Application Launcher; perhaps to a grey? At the moment, it's black text on a black background. I might use the Lancelot Plasmoid, but I can't get it to skin in anything but oxygen.

Once again, SUPER STUFF!!!

Strange things :)

Spoons provide no notes background at the moment, so plasma should automatically show the one from the default theme.

As for kickoff background (obviously, I forgot to test is) I'm not sure whether it is possible to change only the colour of that text - I'll see what can be done.

As for Lancelot, if you are using a theme that provides the needed files (default themes in KDE 4.2 do), it is just a matter (well it should be, have no idea what else could be wrong) of making sure that the new theme is saved into plasma*whatever*rc, and restarting L.

I copied the Oxygen notes.svgz into the Spoons widget directory, and all is OK.

Didn't realize that Spoons doesn't have a Lancelot skin... Just assumed :( ... Though, even with themes that do have a Lancelot skin, I haven't had any success getting anything but the Oxygen skin applied. Will fool around with it when I next use a Lancelot "equipped" theme.

Will wait patiently to see if you can come up with a solution to the Kickoff problem.

Thanks for all of your help.

I like this one. It really reminds me of the KDE3 theme Domino.

Now you have 2 themes for different occasions, one dark, sharp & flat, and the other light, curved & dull. Good to see the resurrection of this theme.
