Description:

Blue sky theme based on abstract art is fully transparent with the slight drop shadow for better visibility. This theme contains the most elements that you need for general purposes and it's absolutely compatible with the most recent versions of KDE. Since this theme uses the gradients with color tone from dark to bright blue, you'll able to use it with your favorite color scheme or wallpaper. I hope you like it.

Note: Difference between normal and alternative version is that the normal version don't have a kicker background.

I fixed some of those bugs but check this, this from default KDE's theme Air, I think this is KDE 4.6's bug.

After installing using the get more themes icon I do not see the theme as an option to select.

I would also prefer if the file was hosted so it would be possible to install and update from KDE's own KNewStuff (e.g. in your KDE settings' "Look&Feel" tab)

I don't know why but you can simply download it and then extract to /home/user name/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme, Good luck

Thank you! I love this theme! Wish the installer in KDE would work correctly :(

KDE is nice, but still has a lot of kinks to work out since the KDE4 upgrade.

Hi,

I love this theme and since the very first moment it has became the standard theme I am using. It fits in so good with the rest.

I noticed that you put up a new screenshot with a different background. (The Woman Warrior). Where did you get that background ? Could you provide a link ?

Thanks and keep up the great work.

Hello - I think this is a really refreshing plasma theme :)

A couple of bugs I spotted are that the overlay extends onto the shadowed area which looks kind of strange, especially on darker backgrounds. Also it would be nice to have support for vertical panels.

Thank you!

Have a look here: http://ompldr.org/vNnF1YQ

Look carefully at the edges of the widgets and tooltips and you can see the pattern extend onto the shadow.

You can also see that there is only the fallback pattern on the vertical panel.

I was fixed the vertical panel but I can't find a way to fix the shadows also other themes like G-Remix have a same problem.

IMHO the pattern is too strong. Sora is from japanese "sky" so should be more volatile.
