just the pager, tasks and digital clock widgets on the desktop. No reason to confine them to a panel if you don't want to, right? :-) - Jan 19 2009

the version distributed with the betas were out of date. The version of Elegance distributed with KDE 4.2 has been updated to match latest version here.

This is a great theme, that looks great with KDE 4.2. - Jan 08 2009
This most recent update has my desktop wearing this theme quite often. The task item theme is now my personal favorite. Very subtle, but puproseful with excellent attention to detail. I'm glad it has been included in 4.1 because, expecially with this latest update, it deserves it.

Thanks again. - Jul 27 2008
The black rectangle was a bug in plasma. it's been fixed for the 4.1 release. - Jul 27 2008
I got as many elements as I could in this screenshot.

Hope it helps! - Apr 07 2008
I decided to test the theme on my svn version of KDE. The svgs appear to be rendering fine.

A screenshot png can be downloaded here:

Not sure if the qt bug in 4.0.2 might be affecting this. Anyway happy to help testing if it helps any. This is quite a nice looking theme.

peace - Mar 30 2008
I'm not sure what's going on with icon themes in plasma but I've yet to get any of the themes I've made to use them. The rest seems to be working fairly well though.

Could you say what you mean by "not well painted"? If you do not have Desktop Effects turned on, any transparencies you have in the panel, dialogs and tooltips may render poorly. There's an opaque folder in the theme folder, for svgs designed to work without transparencies (or compsiting in general). Usually its only needed for dialogs, panels and tooltips.

Hope this helps and great theme! - Mar 30 2008

Unfortunately I haven't been able to replicate the problem you're having. I updated the first screenshot to show what it looks like on my day old svn version of 4.2.

If others are having this problem perhaps they might supply more details that might help me figure out the problem your having. Otherwise I hope you're problem goes away with the next 4.1 daily update. - Dec 18 2008
Thanks much for the feedback. I'll have to take a look at this calendar issue you're having. In the svn version of KDE I was running this problem didn't show up so I'll svn up and check. What color scheme were you using?

In the third screen shot the color scheme I used was Magma ( - Dec 17 2008
I think I got the wallpaper from May take some searching there though.... - Sep 11 2008
The new task item theming no longer has this.

Hope this helps! - Jun 04 2008
This theme requires a development version of KDE4 or KDE 4.1 when it comes out. This is so that the theme can adjust to the system colors. That's why it only looks grey on KDE 4.0.3 which is what comes with Kubuntu 8.04.

Kubuntu should have packages for 4.1 when it comes out (unless they backport this feature).

Hope this helps! - Apr 21 2008
You'll need an svn version of KDE or 4.1 when it comes out.

Hope this helps. - Apr 07 2008
I debated with myself over whether to change this. The login splash is not themed by plasma but the logout dialog is, and follows the visual theme of the login splash, so I wanted to leave them visually connected.

But, who knows, I may change my mind later...

Till then, hope you still find the theme useful. - Mar 27 2008
It's all the scheme. The difference is just a different color scheme selection in System Settings. "Color-sensitive" just means that the theme will change color to match the currently selected color scheme. - Mar 25 2008

I just wanted to say that I'm so excited with the quality you've bled into this style. You've probably heard it enough already, but if not: Amazing job! Love what you're doing with this.

peace and respect - Dec 17 2008
Oh, and I wanted to mention that I'd like to work on a plasma theme that works really well with this theme.

- Apr 18 2008
Just wanted to mention that what you've done, and are doing, with this style is really quite good. It betrays a level of discipline I sometimes wish I saw elsewhere.

Anyway great theme! Consider this comment as words of encouragement to keep you motivated. This really is quite good and very, very promising.

Thanks for ALL your hard work!

This has taken up permanent residence on my desktop.

Please consider getting this into playground in the KDE svn. It would be great if this could be included in the kdeplasmoids module for 4.2. - Jul 08 2008

This theme has evolved into a truly nice looking theme. I have only one recommendation: the dialog background takes up quite a bit of space. It looks great for krunner (krunner.svg) but not for the generic dialog (background.svg - used by clock calendar and device notfier).

Hope this helps and thanks for the great theme. - Jun 18 2008

Oh please.... I'm reasonably sure the above comment would not have been made were the ratings soaring above 70%. Hey look, perhaps there are a few on here that are just tired of seeing the same thing over and over and over and over again. Hot, scantily clad girl sprawled over a desktop... guess what, it's been done. Since the dawn of the picture-as-a-desktop paradigm and before that in cubicle pinups, ad nauseum...

That said I think it's great YOU like it and I'm sure there are others who happen to like it as well. More power to you! Just don't go all whiny when someone simply offers a different opinion of your post. Like you said, it's a matter of personal taste... Don't let that deter you from posting your stuff. - Mar 10 2005

This is one of the best contributions to the linux desktop. I've been using v0.5 with the kde Lipstik style and it's great to see how consistent my gtk apps look. not to mention how nice they look with the Lipstik style!

I'm sure everyone else has said it but thanks again!

P.S. This makes my desktop look far more consistent than windows (what with all the different toolkits - 2000, xp, .net, etc. run outlook express with office 2003 with IE... you'll see what I mean) - Dec 23 2004

I've been enjoying this style a lot!

the sparse alternating dimples on the toolbar handles seems slightly out of odds with in-line dimples used elsewhere in the style. Is there anyway you could make them in-line dimples like they look elsewhere (scrollbar, slider, etc.)? Or maybe restore the toolbar dimple density to the original plastik (as an option)?

Just suggestions...

I, like many others, are extremely grateful for your hard work. - Nov 30 2004
