KDE minus spiritual clutter by bohoomil KDE minus spiritual clutter by bohoomil
Here I come with a tiny pack of add-ons for KDE:

* CustomZone QtCurve theme -- simple and functional (for me), intended to introduce as little clutter and visual noise as possible.

* euphrasia color schemes for KDE environment, Konsole terminal emulator and Kate editor.

Maybe someone will find any of those bits useful. ;)

Thanks for dropping by!

There is something about this style that is extremely elegant!! I really like it; however, i'm not crazy about the tone of the color you chose. Something a little more neutral grey i think would be nicer! Just a suggestion :)

Thank you very much! I'm a bit afraid that choosing from 256 (?) shades of grey makes me more undecided than picking any of the remaining n millions of colors. :D If you could simply suggest a color code (or codes) I should take into account, I would certainly play with it as I'm no expert in this matter at all. ;)

I would go with something closer to the 235,235,235 RGB color range. Also, i would simply square the ends of the window frame rather than cut it off by 1 pixel. Just a suggestion! :)

when i saw the title of your deviation i was like, geez, has KDE started religious evangelizing as part of plasma or something? messages promoting *what some see as* backward superstitions are now popping out the systray? is this introduced in 4.10 beta?.. all sorts of thoughts ran through my mind :p
but now i see what you mean.
imo, the default KDE visual identity is not so great, objectively, personal taste aside. it’s a mighty fine DE but the first impression will put many people off. the style, the icons, the colors, imo, are not bad, but they simply do not do justice to the DE in ”promoting“ the value of the system underneath. it's so much cooler than it looks by default, in other words :D
now on to your solution. well very briefly, i also run qtcurve and a very similar style, although i bit lighter shade of gray, so clearly, i must like it! and i do :)
and i just love your colorscheme. the one for vim you posted earlier is one of those things that made me wish i actually used vim more often. but now there's konsole :)

Thank you sooo much! There is obviously no political / religious / moral / etc. background behind the way I've abused Qt, only the need to put something on my KDE's bare bones after all the default themes have been permanently damaged (by me). :D And I must say that I love this obvious front end to QtCurve -- something Gtk has never had and it's so handy if you can instantly alter any part of the theme (for a practical rather than aesthetic reason). Now I'm spending most of the time in dwm again: my habits seem to question any attempt to move permanently to a different working environment, so in the end I can operate Kwin with the same shortcuts I have set in dwm, doing all the file work in $SHELL and Midnight Commander instead of Dolphin or at least Krusader. However, having absolutely painlessly survived two KDE updates, as well as having tested plenty of KDE specific software (both of the official and unofficial origin) , I'm truly impressed by the final product.

Thank you once again for your wonderful comment: it has just made my day. :bow: :)

i'm glad i don't annoy with my musings, that's all :)
yeah it’s a big leap, DWM to KDE :)
the paradigm shift would make me dizzy :)
