This most recent update has my desktop wearing this theme quite often. The task item theme is now my personal favorite. Very subtle, but puproseful with excellent attention to detail. I'm glad it has been included in 4.1 because, expecially with this latest update, it deserves it.

Thanks again.

Hello again :)

This theme is getting nicer and nicer.

0.6 has a bug though. Sometimes I get artifacts when I hover/unhover a task. During the transition i get a black square, next to the task rectangle. I still don't know what triggers the bug. For example, now it's working fine, but if I open Firefox, I get the bug again.

If I have more information I'll post here.

@previous poster:

That's the Obsidian Coast color scheme (I think)
The icons can be shown with the folder view plasmoid (still not included in OpenSuse I think)
and enable the desktop effects to get transparent windows.

The black rectangle was a bug in plasma. it's been fixed for the 4.1 release.

I got obsedian color on and it looks great and Elegance also looks GREAT on my desktop but when I enable desktop effects the only transparent thing I get is my taskbar and title bar. I can't get the whole window transparent. I went in the translucency settings and the descriptions says: make decorations and windows transparent. But when I click on the settings I get: Decorations, Moved/Resized Windows and Dialogs. What is wrong. I'm on openSuSE 11 with KDE 4.0

In the screenshot, Dolphin is black. How did he change the theme of it? I am using OpenSuSE 11.

Also, alot of people can show files as a plasma, how do they do that?. What is the plasma?

ANd how can I make windows transparent? As on the screenshots.

It's a different color scheme mate! Take a luk at the Color Schemes section here in kde-look and u can download install various color schemes for kde4. there's a separate section for kde4 color schemes! alternatively u can also download and install color schemes directly under System Settings/Appearance/Colors. Hope that helps!

Regarding the other question, if i understand it correctly, ur talkin about Folder View. All u need to do is add a widget to desktop called Folder View. There will be a transparent button on ur desktop. Just click on it, and u shud get an option Add Widgets, provided the widgets are unlocked. If not, unlock the widgets first and then u can add widgets. Under Add widget there is an option called Folder View. And u can configure the Folder view to show ne directory.

if theres ne further question, do ask!

Very beautifl work but I have a sudgestion: add more contrast because it's not easy to see the differences between the parts of the window.

The window in the first screenshot is inactive that's why its contrast is low...

Very good. However, I just updated to 0.5 and tasks aren't well renderized when hovered. If this isn't a known issue I can provide a screenshot.
Thanks!

Hi, for everyone who is insterested in an easy installation of this theme (and also of slim-glow, heron, Silicon and Aya)

you can easly install it from my repository:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/cornelius-maihoefer/ubuntu hardy main

and install the plasma-themes-extra package.

then just change the following file ~/.kde4/share/config/plasmarc. Replace the word "default" with the desired theme-name (Elegance, in this case).

Cheers.

Plasma's own interface for downloading and updating themes works fine, but thanks for the offer ;-)

Yes, I know, but the packages where for the 4.0.x-branch... The way it works now, is obviously better... cheers;=)

yeah! default plasma theme for kde 4.1
(A simple suggestion for kde4 developers: the icon background really doesn't needed in no selection mode, it seems to be come back to oldoldold OS, please don't do it)

The point of rectangles is to improve text visibility on colorfull wallpapers...

What about a blue light caming from the buttom of the bar for the selected task?
I have tried to modify your theme (I'm not a graphics and you can obtain better results!)

Best plasma theme so far! The only -not-that-great- thing so far is the Clock rendering (although it has improved)

Best theme so far.
The only thing I like better in the oxygen theme is the battery. (people who make oxygen stuff make good icons and battery theme is basically an icon) But I don't use laptops, so I won't need the battery theme.
