Seeing what the most gifted folks out there can do (who, like llewton, [link] managed to intoxicate me back with joy and fun of our favourite OS flexibility), and having completed the default dwm setup in CRUX so that nothing is going to break for the next year or so, I just had to play with KDE for a little while to see if I'm ever able to work with a once rejected DE again. So here comes the answer: yes, I am. :)

Pretty much the default KDE 4.8.4 with a handful of custom tweaks:

* OS: Arch Linux (the most stable & robust distro: the core install was done nearly 3 years ago)
* wallpaper by alexander-gg [link]
* QtCurve theme: Ozone (tweaked)
* plasma & terminal colors: custom
* icons: Kfaenza [link]
* appmenu, plasma menubar & icon-only task manager
* not shown: custom kdm & splash themes to match the desktop

Thank you for watching. :)

bohoomil.. if i really contributed to anyone, and especially you, rediscovering the joy of anything, it makes me very happy. that for me would be the whole point of sharing ideas like this.
i'm also happy that you gave KDE a chance and love how you kept it "native", including both panels... except for deadbeef? whatever the player is it looks extremely smooth and clean with that icon theme.
so i take it it's working well, no notable glitches, crashes?
and i hear 4.9 is even "snappier" :)

Wow! Looks very cool! I still wonder why my appmenu button is a ugly button with three stripes. Can't find how to change that.
Do you mind share what font you're using for konsole?

Thank you very much for your feedback. :)

The font is Envy Code R [link]

As for the issue with global menu, well, appmenu (*-qt and *-gtk) is only a library. The plasmoid that actually does the job is plasma menu bar [link] The icon in the top left corner is the window list indicator plasmoid. So far all of them work pretty seamlessly. :)

Thank you for the font, but you didn't get me. I thought the left button in your app windows were appmenu... I didn't see your plasmoid menu :D However, thank you so much!
