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.

Thanks so much for this- it's gorgeous, frankly. One question: I'm getting a weird grey, garbled mess on the lockscreen. I'm not sure if that's the QTCurve theme or the plasma theme. Any idea? (I've only changed the selection color background in the colors section). www.dropbox.com/s/keigwjtruamt…

Thanks a lot! :)  Weird.  That would be in the plasma theme.  Which version of KDE do you run?

Running 4.13.3 in Kubuntu w/ the Velours plasma theme (but Underworld icons, and the Hex QTCurve theme, of course). I get that no matter what desktop theme I switch to when I use the Hex theme. Very minor thing, but it's been driving me nuts.

Edit: this might have something to do with it: I'm noticing a similar gray splotch in Muon beneath the menu in the upper right: www.dropbox.com/s/tdonmtzqefbh…

This probably has to do with using a newer QtCurve version.  QtCurve has changed developers and things haven't been working right since.  You may look into reverting to an older version.  1.18.5 is the newest version I've used without problems.

Cool theme, using it right now together with flattr icons.
A firefox theme to go with it would make it complete ;)

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.
