Hex by garthecho Hex by garthecho
QtCurve, color scheme, and Plasma theme.  Hex is flat, textured, and aims to be clear and easy to use.

The plasma theme is heavily based on Caledonia by Malcer: malcer.deviantart.com/art/Cale…

*It may be necessary to restart any running apps after enabling.

I recommend using FLattr icons: deviantn7k1.deviantart.com/art…


TO INSTALL

Copy plasma theme to ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/
QtCurve and color schemes can be installed within System Settings

     -------------------------------------------
  
   ***ARCH USERS***

QtCurve version 1.8.18-1 has been causing problems with this theme.  It's necessary to downgrade to a previous version for this to work.


CHANGELOG
-------

2.1 Minor update

- fixed readability of text entries in plasma theme.

Hey, I decided to feature your Hex Plasma/Qtcurve theme. Right now, i'm stuck at the Desktop Toolbar or the Panel Theme for my Plasma setup... please can you check what is the file you choose to change the toolbar/panel desktop theme from Hex? It's supposed to be on the "Panel Background" option under Desktop Themes right? I tried panel_background.svgz, toolbar.svgz from the widgets folder on Hex but still no results...

Which version of KDE do you run?  You should just have to install and select the plasma theme.

I run KDE 4.14 with Plasma-Desktop 5. Problem is, we don't have the option to install desktop themes.. we have to manually add file per file until we get the customized view.. here's a screenshot of my current setup. See how the theme details are chosen, and how my toolbar/painel theme still keeps the default): gyazo.com/f715d09dadccde476452…

So, if I'm understanding correctly, you've already copied the plasma theme folder to ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ and it's still not showing up as an option to select?  I'll have to check, but maybe plasma 5 is doing something differently.

well, that did the trick! I did not know that I had to copy the plasma folder :) Once I copied the theme folder the option immeditaly showed up. Thanks for helping.

AWESOME theme by the way, really enjoying it.
(Took me so long to get this running, now that's worth it I have to say haha)

Hi garthecho,

Running ArchLinux, I'm experiencing an issue with your theme. After I selected the Windows Decoration as QtCurve, the windows decorations (the border of the dialog windows actually) become transparent, only the default buttons defined by QtCurve are visible (they are not the one from your theme). 

Like you asked, I downgraded as far as I could (QtCurve 1.18.5) and I've still the same problem. Any idea?

Had the same problem on Arch Linux. Disabling desktop effects removed it.

Hmmm.. I haven't seen that yet.  Does the problem go away if you select a different color scheme?

Indeed you were right.

I selected a color scheme provided with QtCurve itself, and when I tried to apply the QtCurve Window Decoration, the border are still transparent.

I'm gonna reboot. Since I haven't rebooted this computer for a long time, while several KDE related libs have been updated in the meantime.
