I don't know if it's a bug or not.
But panel background is different with panel focus or without focus (I've activated "Windows can cover panel" option).
I've made a couple of screenshot:
Without Focus:

And with focus:

the first one panel (no focus) has strange borders?

Finally! I was hoping for a decent dark theme like this!

A few though:

A little usability flaw: in the shutdown window you can hardly tell what option is selected (logout, shutdown...)

You could also change the selection colour, it looks a bit ugly, expecially when using the kde netbook search&launch activity. Maybe using the Lucid colour scheme? Check http://www.taranfx.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/lucid-lynx.jpg It looks a bit better IMHO

Maybe the fav panel in search&launch could be less glossy and more plain, in line with the overall look.

The more tray icons the merrier! - although only the bluetooth one is really necessary.

But those are just minor, mostly personal issues: great work! :D

I think I've fixed all things now, not sure what you meant about the shutdown dialog, could you give me a screenshot if there's still a issue?

also, I added a bluetooth mono icon, however I'm not sure if the naming is right, tell me if it shows up or not

thanks!

the shutdown dialog and plasma-netbook look nice now :)

the bluetooth icon doesn't show up, I was thinking to a naming issue but I really can't find the Air bluetooth icon for comparison - which is correctly displayed using that theme.
it *should* be in /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/icons/ but, well, it's not there :(

I haven't really looked at the shutdown dialog and search & launch yet. The selection color is the same as in maverick (your screenshot is from lucid), I will change the hover color though.

I installed it via Get Hot New Stuff in KDE 4.5.4 but it doesn't show up in the Plasma theme list.

Thanks, it works now. Nice work! Plasma needs more simple, thin themes like this! The ones that come with KDE are ostentatious and bloated-looking. You ought to send this to Kubuntu and ask them to include it in Natty.
