Description:

I found these mockups on the ubuntu forum.
These mockups look like the perfect KDE 4 themes to me, they remind me of current Oxygen themes, but nicer. I don't have the talent or knowledge to make a theme at all, much less this nice. I hope someone else falls in love with these mockups and decides to make a theme based on it!!

kimmik made a gtk/metacity theme based on these mockups, but not quite the same in my opinion.

If anyone likes the idea of this theme please let us all know by saying so in a comment. Thanks!

someone wrote a svg-theme engine. so if there is an artist... someone could create a svg template for this theme engine...

writing qt/kde-styles is very hard. you have to reimplement all widget paintings (in code). the most programmers who have time and skills can't to these kind of job because they of the ability to recreate these drawings.... because this mockups have more then simple gradients (gradients are hard to copy from pictures), they have glossy effects etc too... .
i looked into skulpture-theme and this theme impl. alone has more then 10k lines of code^^ very hard job...

You might get a better response from developers if you created a nearly complete mockup of the different widgets available -- such as those from here: http://doc.trolltech.com/4.5/gallery-cleanlooks.html; currently, you are missing some critical components such as tabs, sliders, and scrollbars. It would probably even be a good idea to post the different mockups in your thread on the Ubuntu Forums (and/or kubuntuforums.net), where people could vote on which they liked best and suggest improvements. This theme would have a good chance of fruition if you could form a community around it.

It looks great, you have my vote!

man, this is the best mockup seen here for AGES^^
i'm sure many people like me want it to get more attention

but you're right, this shouldn't be done by everyone...difficult question

I understand that you want attention, but updating this entry only to get it to the first page when in fact there is no real change done, is just lame imo.

Imagine if everyone would do this.
Voted bad.

I didn't update this just for attention. I actually had a reason to update the description.

Then tell me what you changed.
I've seen this entry updated 3 times now, and the description was the same all the time.

Sorry if I sound harsh, but let's say it like this:
If you had a reason to update the entry (and can show proof) I am very sorry, and take it all back.
If not, then you should defenitely stop making up excuses and stand for your own actions.

It's a nice mockup, sure, but who is there to judge who can update their content to bypass others who post their fresh stuff?

You really should apologize, as I said every time I updated this post I updated the actual information of the post. I've updated the images. I've updated it by giving proper credit to the designer, and I've updated it by correcting the url. You may not have noticed, perhaps closer attention to detail before accusing.

... but i dont like the rounded statusbars and text fields. I think it would look better without rounded edges ;)

IMHO this will blend well with any plasma theme available...

I wanna add two things:
# The highlight effect on the selected item is ugly. You could use the oxygen style for this.
# The progress bar looks out of place and it's too tall. I noticed that most, if not all, of your widget elements are square-shaped. For consistency, it must follow the shape/form of the other elements in your design.

P.S. I don't know if I am using the right terminologies, I hope you get my point.

As well as the search bar. It should not be rounded...

just yesterday i thought of how ugly the currently available kde4-themes are and that they don't fit to the plasma themes at all. someone should make a new one, as nice as the theme for windows (yes, windows!)

this mockup is nearly exactly what i think of a good and nice theme.

please, someone, make it happen!

In my opinion win style sucks (too overloaded)... this theme is much better, cleaner and nicer.

Try to use the SVG based theme engine QuantumStyle. I made that engine but don't have any talent for designing themes.
So with my engine and your proposal, things can get real :)
