conky monitors is from here:

conky calendar is from here:

about the qss... well, the rest of it would
be very very very very unusable for anybody
else but me, as the rest of it is just a
huge pixmap that is loaded on the main
window,,, so if I where to change the
font settings it would already look
fkd.

how to use dolphin with stylesheet?
well, just:
dolphin --stylesheet /path/to/qssfile.qss

I think you must tell this artwork to kde to implement this style as deffault.
I don't find it now, but in kde forum, there was a petition to have several default styles/themes to new kde users. And I think it is the best one.
I'm new on KDE and linux and personally I've tried to have this style without result.
So I think it would be great to get bigger the linux community, your artwork is excellent.

Excellent indeed.
I remember the topic you're talking about, it's on the Brainstorm part of the KDE's Forum. Luckly I posted on it, so here is the URL : http://forum.kde.org/brainstorm.php#idea62375_page1
It's a submitted idea but I guess you still can add your comment.

I'm trying to get the same look for my KDE. I love Air and Oxygen, but this is even better. And change is good.

Well thx!

hmmm everything I know is taken from here:
http://doc.trolltech.com/4.6/stylesheet.html

here is the tabs section from my qss file tho:

QTabBar::tab {
background: qlineargradient(x1: 0, y1: 0, x2: 0, y2: 1,
stop: 0 #8f8f8f, stop: 0.15 #cacaca,
stop: 0.25 #cacaca, stop: 1.0 #b2b2b2);
border-style : none double solid double solid;
border-width: 1px;
border-color: #969696;
border-bottom-left-radius: 8px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 8px;
min-width: 8ex;
padding : 1px;
}

QTabBar::tab:selected, QTabBar::tab:hover {
background: qlineargradient(x1: 0, y1: 0, x2: 0, y2: 1,
stop: 0 #8f8f8f, stop: 0.15 #d7d7d7,
stop: 0.25 #d7d7d7, stop: 1.0 #c0c0c0);
border: 1px solid #8f8f8f;
}

QTabBar::tab:selected {
border-color: #969696;
border-style : none ridge ridge groove;
border-width : 2px;
border-top-color: #afafaf;
background: qlineargradient(x1: 0, y1: 0, x2: 0, y2: 1,
stop: 0 #c6c6c6, stop: 1 #b7b7b7);
}

QTabBar::tab:!selected {
margin-bottom: 2px; /* make non-selected tabs look smaller */
border-top-color: #9f9f9f;
margin-right : -1px;
}

/* make use of negative margins for overlapping tabs */
QTabBar::tab:selected {
/* expand/overlap to the left and right by 4px */
margin-left: -4px;
margin-right: -4px;
}




yeah... everything is done with qss...
...no pixmaps in the tabs.

just ask if anything is unclear.

Where can I get the plasma monitors and the calendar that is shown here?

Please, do not tell me that this is just a mockup.

Report

no mockup.

These are not plasma tho, these
are made using conky:
http://conky.sourceforge.net/

using lua scripting you can get all kinds
of stuff painted on the desktop, look
here:
http://www.deviantart.com/#order=9&q=conky+lua

you should know tho... conky does not
play nice with plasma...
...having something to do with plasma
not painting anything to the root window.
..could be that is fixed with conky 1.8
with the argb support tho.. sorry
bout the rant.
