edit: Toggling the blur module in desktop effects solved this for me. No idea if it will be retained next time I have to reboot though. - Dec 28 2020

Ok. Actually the borders problem disappeared when I switched to breeze dark and then back to this theme, but maybe it will reappear on next login. Is there any way to numerically increase the opacity of application launcher etc.? I already have Background Contrast turned on. - Dec 28 2020

Great theme, unfortunately it doesn't work under Wayland. Manjaro has just switched to Wayland as default so imagine this will affect many going forwards. There's some strange extra borders, and transparency is too high. Can you take a look? - Dec 28 2020

On my system the preinstalled color schemes are Breeze, Breeze Light, and Breeze Dark.
Breeze has a dark titlebar, but otherwise is similar/same as Breeze Light.
On my custom scheme I changed the titlebar of Breeze to #394551 (Arsenic), and slightly tweaked the Window background to #f5f5f5 (Whitesmoke).
So I was suggesting having 3 schemes: Genome Mix?, Genome Light, and Genome Dark, with Genome Mix having some kind of dark titlebar, but otherwise light. - Dec 09 2020

I do have another request. Genome Dark and Genome Light are ok color schemes, but I actually use a custom one which modifies Breeze (dark Titlebar + light Window Backgound).
The challenge here is to get a combination of a darkish color and a light color that go well together without straining the eye. Anything too constrasty e.g. black and near-white is not nice to look at. But I find Breeze's blue-gray default a bit boring. - Dec 06 2020

Fantastic theme! I am looking for something that has the visual consitancy and simplity of Breeze, but is more modern. After trying dozens this is close to perfect. I have Spectrum Light as my theme, and Spectrum Min. Classic as my Plasma style. This combination is actually very similar to Breeze Twilight which is supposed to be released in early 2021.
I would strongly recommend submitting some of the theme's properties such as the frosted highlight box to official Breeze, as it's much more elegant than the current light blue box. And also the highlighting in Task Manager (non Icons-only version) is beautiful.
My only suggestion for improvement would be some tunablilty of the level of "frostiness" / opacity other than the 2 levels possible using the Desktop Effects toggle. - Dec 05 2020
