The Spectrum themes change color according to the Color Scheme you have equipped.

From System Settings, go to "Colors" to change your Color Scheme. Go to "Plasma Style" to change between Spectrum themes. Plain themes will change color with your Color Scheme.

To adjust transparency of the panel and menus:

Under Workspace: Workspace Behavior > Desktop Effects
"Background contrast" to toggle between 2 levels of transparency.
"Blur" will let you choose the strength of the blur effect as well as noise.

Under Appearance: Application Style > Window Decorations
Switch between the opaque and translucent versions of the window border.
"No Borders" and "No Side Borders" are the recommended window border sizes.

There are a lot of other effects in Desktop Effects to try if you are new to KDE Plasma.


Have you tried turning it off and on again? Sometimes plasma assets will not update and some may still be themed according to something you previously had set. This can usually be fixed by restarting the applications that used the asset (e.g. Dolphin).

To restart just plasmashell, open KRunner with "Alt + F2" to execute the following 2 lines:

Quit plasmashell

kquitapp5 plasmashell

Restart plasmashell

kstart5 plasmashell

Global Themes

Global Themes in Plasma are Meta- or Super-Themes, capable of changing multiple aspects of the desktop environment at once, like Window Decoration, Plasma Theme, Color Scheme, Icon Theme etc. In addition, one can define the complete Layout, like what panel to use where, the menu type used and much more.

An example Global Theme:
