I still remember the early days of your Nanotek project^^.
However, I don't think Crystal Project fits your theme that much and the progress bar appears a little bit awkward. - Jun 19 2008

Congratulations. Very beautiful. But how come you admire Suse that much? I tried 10.2 and nearly everything there was bad. I prefer Linux Mint over it.

Forgot to say that the corners are ugly but that's just due to dekorator. Emerald is plain better I think. - Jun 19 2008
Stunning background.
I'd put the menu icon a bit more to the left.
The upper grey strip on the taskbar BG is way too wide, I'd reduce it to 60% or so (or just use the original Kore taskbar BG, I think it's perfect).
The window deco top border also looks way too much plastic-like to fit a glossy theme.
Magnificent splash screen. - Jun 19 2008

I really like this theme, but I think you could significantly improve its appearance by exchanging the current taskbar BG with the Kore one as your theme is a glossy one and no plastic-style. - Jun 19 2008

This wallpaper is the best nature-wallpaper on kde-look, no idea why some rate it down. I just think that the clouds need a bit more smoothness, maybe unsharpen them where necessary. - May 14 2008
This is the very best landscape I've ever seen. I am using code2's Kore wallpaper though- it fits the Kore theme much better.
But it's so sharp and and and... everything's just perfect.
But it's not HDR :|

Read the instructions, please.
After you downloaded it, rename it and remove the generised number (eg. 22367-Mint Kore.kth to Mint Kore.kth). Thats probably due to problems that occur because of the difference of folder name and name of the xml file (which will still be Mint Kore.kth)" - Apr 29 2008

I'm sorry, changed something here- now you'll come to a download page when clicking on the file link instead of being linked to the file directly. (In former days, you would have gotten a text file displayed in your browser which wouldn't be any use, that's probably the reason why they changed that)

I'm not a friend of transparency too, that's why I did this green version of code2's Kore suite.

I made a .emerald version now. If it doesn't work, please tell me and I'll fix it (I can't check it at the moment).
You can rename it from .emerald to .tar and unpack it. ~/.emerald/themes is just a link to your home folder (eg /home/USER/.emerald/themes). - Apr 18 2008

Well, I can't use KDE 4 yet (not enough downloading capacity :-( ), but this style is what I've always been missing when using domino and experiencing it's (very strong) limits.
Just from what I can see in these screenshots, it really is what I've been dreaming of.
Thank you a lot, as soon as I use KDE 4 I will use this and only this.
It's amazing how awesome the next releases will have to be (as even 4.0, which is very unstable and unfinished, is just great). You are making it even better. - Feb 08 2008

It's really awesome. I've never seen something superior to it, just some equals.
But there are some things to improve, I think- eg some corners should be imo a bit rounded. But congratulations!

The screenshot is just the one from code2, the icon pack isn't released by him yet. I just had no time to use it, and it's- as I said- only the dekorator theme by Yaccin modified so it REALLY looks like Kore for Emerald.

Domino>>>>All other Style Themes, but it would be perfect if we could change the "background" of the buttons (so the line between the first gradient and the second would not be just a straight line but changeable, eg round on left&right like some Mac button designs.
I think that would be a nice idea and mabe could be realised.
With background I mean black on Alpha (transparency), and black stands for the line between the gradients, so the background for the actual standard look would be:
Just the shapes of the buttons (round left&right) and a straight horizontal line in the middle)
Can this be done? It would make domino really perfect and timeless. - Oct 10 2007

Well, I feel free and quote you:
"I'm more happy if I got a comment to it than a good or bad vote..."
So I added a comment.
There is no standardised font color.
The background of the Konqueror panels look... not good.
Dark blue font on dark green background? :{
Flashy, aggressive green colors...

There are many reasons I don't like it. Do you want to forbid me to say that? Critic should make the criticised people refine their work. I am no foe of this idea. - Oct 19 2007

Hello mayku, IMO your theme is kinda overdone. Maybe it's just taste, but I prefer themes with mainly "modest" colors, flashy ones like intense blue or pink only used for highlioghted fields/buttons/etc.
Your theme is probably also based on Kore by code2? There are so many atm, I have also made a mod of his work (just fixed some bugs, nothing really changed) and will make a self-installing package to install the whole Kore with just one configure file.
It hink code2 is the most influencing artist on the whole site. (Maybe Crystal Project > Kore, but CP is being made by a whole group and Kore only by code2).
he uses this light blue only for some active and important buttons, and this makes Kore that good. If you like having blue everywhere more, it's for sure OK, but I at least recommend using a black Kicker wall and not a blue/white one.
I have similar problems with my project. It's really hard to make a theme that has a high eye-candy effect and at the same time doesn't disturb your concentration. - Oct 10 2007
WOW. I found someone to talk with & someone who shares some interests with me.
Most people I want to communicate with aren't even viewing their comments. :hapy:
I'd prefer round corners on the bottom of the windows, or at least "real" corners (90° x/y). And the color contrast for selected units should be higher (either lighter text or background with more intensive blue).

About the sky theme...
the first try was just ugly, I know that. So I took some sky images to get natural colors. But I'm not very happy with the reswult, too...
The colors are too pale, I think. But Idk what I should change first- the buttons (close minimize etc) or the color scheme (the first attempt to change was bad too).
Ill pick some better blue colors and intensify the contrast. Hope it will improve to an acceptable niveau that way.

BTW: Prolly its juz taste, but Id like your windeco more if ud put the close etc buttons to the very right side.

BTW#2: I use Emerald cuz of 2 reasons :1st I got used to it by using code2s Kore emerald theme and 2nd I think it's very simple& easy & logical in use (as little bitmaps necessary as possible; I welcome that very much since pixel editing is definitely NOT fast. When I first used Gimp I didnt even know that there is a function to make color-changeovers so I edited EVERY pixel and it took so much time to get the right - Oct 08 2007
Looks very similar to code2's Illuminate
But It's good to have this cuz Illuminate will be Windows theme AFAIK.

It looks very similar to code2's Illuminate (see on But doesn't mean I don't like it.
