KDE/KDEmod Theme "Coal"

I would like to invite Arch KDE/KDEmod users to see (and if you like, use it big_smile ) a theme I've made:

Coal_KDE_by_hcalves.png
Download theme from deviantArt (LINK FIXED)

The "Coal" theme, in fact, are various tweaks to give a nice, dark look to your KDE.

It includes:
- Colour theme
- Domino style configuration
- Crystal KWin configurations and overlay images
- Kicker overlay images

There's a small installer that will help copying the files to the right places and show instructions on how configure it all.
(If you can come up with a better installer - using kcfm - it would be greatly appreciated)

As a bonus, the Superkaramba widget for displaying album art on the desktop is included too.

I've been doing themes for some time (if you download themes from gnome-look.org you probably came across something I made), but this one is my first theme for KDE (while I was testing it, I couldn't stand the default theme *yuck*).

Hope you like it, it's my way for contributing back to Linux, Archlinux, KDE and KDEmod communities.

Have fun! wink

Re: KDE/KDEmod Theme "Coal"

Beautiful. I'm almost tempted to give kdemod another try.

KDE just feels really unresponsive on this old hardware though, and I always switch back to openbox and gtk apps.

Re: KDE/KDEmod Theme "Coal"

Kde4 is WAY faster than any gnome i promise. Programs start faster too.
And it should get even faster with QT4.4.

Great theme, port to kde4? ^^

Re: KDE/KDEmod Theme "Coal"

Very impressive work! Although I am preferring light weight window managers such as OpenBox - this is truly amazing. smile

What is that application in the middle of the screen on the first pic btw?

Re: KDE/KDEmod Theme "Coal"

I'll Pay You For This!

edit: spoke too soon. thought twas a new style sad don't fret, i still use the kicker overlay and the colouers (even though in apps the grey is so light in the input fields that it hurts the eye)! work on the colours a lil more, would be great to find the sweet spot while remaining dark.

I need real, proper pen and paper for this.

Wow, this is such a breath of fresh air!! My friend who uses KDE just tried this out, and he absolutely loves it - quote "this theme rocks!".

Keep up the awesome work! :-)
