Yes middle-click. That would be great :) Thanks - Sep 13 2011
Would it be possible to add an option to use rightclicking on the icons to close them instead of adding a new instance? I liked this with the smooth-tasks plasmoid because it is the same behavior most webbrowsers have for tabs. - Sep 13 2011
I am using a vertical taskbar since version 4.2 and the default task plasmoid was never perfect for this. smooth-tasks was an alternative but is getting behind. Your plasmoid is perfect for this job. Please keep developing. - Sep 12 2011

Do you use a vertical panel? - Aug 17 2011
Have you tried to reproduce this with twinview (nvidia) or another sort of dual monitor setup?

For me this is only reproduceable when setting my desktop to dual monitor. In single monitor mode it is gone. It also started occuring after I recently bought my second display.

I am pretty sure that at least what I am seeing (do not know if it is the same problem as the one in the bug report) is related to a multi monitor setup. - Feb 27 2011
I found a bug using vertical panels with twinview (and probably xinerama too).

I got a second monitor on the right of my default monitor and the kde panel on the left of the default monitor.

When I open Yakuake (set to 100% width) it is cut of on the right side (menu button and scroll bar not visible).

When I scale it to 80% using a keyboard shortcut (alt shift arrow) and back to 100% it has the correct size and nothing is cut of.

But after I retract and reopen yakuake the size is wrong again. - Feb 27 2011

Thanks, now it's the perfect cursor for my theme.

I would have voted good anyway, but now it's "doubleplusgood" ;-) - Jun 16 2010
I like the cursor very much, but I cannot use it because that pulsing like it is makes me nervous.

It would be much better if the brightness would rise and slowly fall again.
Preferably slower than human heartbeat frequency.

Like this it has much more of an alarm light than a pulsing glow. - Jun 15 2010

...of the new version of this great theme.

What I don't like in the new version:

-Its way too green. So green it hurts my eyes.
The old transparent/gray/green-glow approach was much more my case.

-No glow anymore. Although everything is now in the former glow color, nothing glows. That's a shame, especially concerning your really cool looking analogue clock.

-With the new borders the plasmoids do not fit together well enough. You have to try forever to arrange them all perfectly enough that it looks good.

-As already mentioned: The taskbar needs a border (in my opinion).
Another Idea would be to take that glowy bar and move it to middle of the control bar instead of the edge of the screen.

-The "Task Button" is now filled with green. I don't know how well it looks with the default task plasmoid, but with smooth-tasks it looks strange.

What I like in the new version:

-The Folder view selection Icons really look cool.

-The new color scheme, although the colors also are painful to look at, the fit very well to the desktop.

-The same goes for the window decoration. It now uses much less space and fits together very well with the color scheme.


I'll stay with the old theme for a while and wait what you come up with next.
Maybe I'll read myself into plasma themeing and adjust your 1.2.1 version to the needs of newer kde versions if necessary. - Mar 27 2010
I like those screenshots.
Especially I like how the little plasmoids are shaped so their borders connect to each other.

The colour-scheme is awesome finally fits with the auroae theme.
The problem with the old aurorae theme was that even the glow around the windows added to the width of the decoration.

The only thing I don't like is how the new controllbar looks. In my opinion it would look much nicer with a border like the old one had because everything else in your theme is "edgy".

Anyway its glad to hear that you are still working on this theme.
I am looking forward to hearing about 2.0 soon. ;-)

so long,
Dorsai - Mar 21 2010
I forgot to ask you the following:
Could you make a kdm and/or a ksplash theme?
The kdm them kdmthemegenerator produces arent perfect.
The theme produced by ksplashthemegenerator is OK thought.

So Long,

I am using your theme for some weeks now (on KDE SC 4.3 and 4.4) and its simply amazing.

I am a GitS Fan myself and using a fitting wallpaper together with your theme.

A tip for all vertical taskbar users is to replace the KDE taskbar with "smooth-tasks" as you can rotate the taskborders, which makes this mod look as good with vertical taskbars.

I am using it together with the normal oxygen design, as I don't like the aurora themes because they waste to much space and only look good with absolute black windows.
Absolute black windows (as suggested by the artist of this theme) hurt my eyes because of the harsh contrasts.

Now I am using a modified version of the "obsidian coast" colour scheme, moddet to fit the colour of "ghost".

Thank you so much jmtodaro for this amazing piece of work. The first dark theme I really love. - Mar 21 2010

I think so too. Its better in any way. The only problem with smooth tasks is, that it takes the devs some time to adjust to a new kde release.

It would be much better if it was used and supported by upstream kde. - Mar 24 2010
