We are waiting for an update to the plasma 5!

I just installed Kubuntu 15.04 which uses plasma 5 and tried to get diamond 1.5.6 working and it doesn't even recognize it. The newer diamond has a substantial space around the edges of each widget so I can't use it. Is there any chance of getting 1.5.6 working with the new plasma? I noticed that the air plasma theme has the same gap around the perimeter so I am guessing that diamond is based on that. Is there a way to eliminate the gap on the newer version of diamond?

Hello!

Which wallpaper do you use in your first screenshot, please?
It isn't in the wallpaper directory in your archive.

Thank you!

Thanks for updating this theme. Tell the other themers I am taking them KANG here at google+ here. I am hashtagging in #KDE and #Kubuntu all over the place. There is hardly anything on these two hashtags. Have the admin up in the KDE forums do a good hard core dump with the beta Kubuntu 14.10. I am going to try to branch out my microblog hard over the next few weeks. Link out:: https://plus.google.com/u/0/107398042066395453449?tab=wX

That site will draw in TONS of attention so its a go. Have fun everyone. No one else is putting it out in that site.

Yep, getting about 4 hits an hour on my site on sharing across. That Kdevelop pic on my site, its on fire. There you go admin. You asked me once to prove why I am around, that is hardcore system analyst stuff. Better hire someone. Awww and you thought I could not do it. Can I code some? Check me out over there. There goes python. Me correcting code over there. You lost a good one. Be careful on who you ban next time. Helping hands was never forgotten by me. I never did nothing wrong.

Is it possible to have monochrome volume control icon in systray? At the moment it uses green color.

Hi soee

at the moment the color of the volume control is green, but in the next versions will most likely be monochrome.

What color scheme are you using with those diamond themes. ?

Hi!
I want to thank you for the best Plasma theme ever! It is the most beautiful!
There's only one problem, with progress bars in various plasmoids, especially in system monitor plasmoid (partitions usage) and in notifications (for example when you unzip with Ark). Only very thin stripe between two thick bars shows the progress or amount of used place in the partitions.

Maybe the problem is that I'm using KDE 4.8 (Debian), I don't know.

This is by far the best theme of all! I have a slide-show of hi-res images running on the desktop and this shows them off the best! I use the following plasma widgets: cwp, disk space, folder view, digital clock, countdown timer (not the add-on timer).
I have tried the analog clock as well and it is beautiful along with the rest of the widgets... except the countdown timer is very bad. Note that this widget does not really look good on any desktop theme. On yours however, the numbers are extremely large and they touch each other. The time separator (colon) is the opposite color from the digits. On other desktop themes these problems do not seem to exist, so I hope you will fix it. Then, it will be perfect; for me anyway. Very nice, indeed!
P.S. I am using the default grid containment with 7 horizontal grids and 3 vertical.

Your theme looks great, very clean. Thanks for your work :-)

Two things I think look a bit out of place:

1) The green color in the volume icon
2) The big xfce (tango?) icon in the shutdown dialog

Keep it up!

Great Theme!
I think that the only thing you should fix is the analog clock, still appears with air theme.

Hi Vortex0965,

In version 1.1.0 we solved the problem of the clock that is not integrated with the theme.
