If you’re not a fan of the large borders on the default KDE 4.0 Plasma theme, you’re in luck. The first themes for Plasma are starting to appear. Here’s how to install the new Slim Glow theme in KDE 4.0:
- Create a folder called
~/.kde4/share/apps/, if it does not already exist.
- Download the Slim Glow
and extract it to
- Open the
~/.kde4/share/config/plasmarcfile in a text editor. Change the line
name=slim-glow. This tells Plasma which theme to use.
- Log out and back in to KDE to restart Plasma, and the new theme should take effect.
A few other Plasma addons are available in the Plasma category at KDE-Look.
[update] And here’s another new Plasma theme I’m sure everyone will want.
