Lightning Unified QtCurve

Downloads:  5127
Submitted:  Nov 12 2012
Updated:  Jun 26 2014


This is a QtCurve Preset-file

- Install \"kde-style-qtcurve\" from package manager

- Open System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Style

- Change Widget Style to, QtCurve, and click configure

- Import the file qtcurve-file you downloaded here.

Save and Presto :-)

You might need to log out and back in again for all window decorations to be updated.

Take a look at the KDE Color Theme I shared I while back:


That KDE color theme is what I am using in the Screenshots :-)

Enjoy :-)


--------------- 16/12-12 ---------------

- Nicer Progressbars, also animated now.

- Menus are nicer now, lighter, more fresh, look.

- Nicer buttons

--------------- 27/04-13 ---------------

- Thinner scrollbars (nicer when using borderless windows)

- Things are more rounded

- New tab-look

- Color shade for sorted column

--------------- 12/05-13 ---------------

- Fixed QtCurve window decorations for those interested in using that with this preset.

-- This update is especially useful if you're using different color schemes between programs, like digikam. Window decorations follow color scheme.

Otherwise, well - It has some refreshing window buttons :-P

( for those interested, the digikam color scheme can be found here: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/Lightning+Unified+-+digiKam+%28Fullscreen%29?content=155968 )

--------------- 31/05-13 ---------------

- Tweaked tabs to be a bit more gentle and blend in with the rest of the window better.

--------------- 28/07-13 ---------------

- Adjusted shadows, deeper 3D-feeling.

--------------- 20/11-13 ---------------

- Been working on Shapes, Shadows, Shades and box-details.

--------------- 04/12-13 ---------------

- Work a bit on List-Views, Docked Windows and pop-up menus.

-- List-view headers are softer blending better into window for a more soothing feeling.

-- List-view selections/selected objects have a more toned down appearance. Trying to be more indicating than focus-stealing.

-- Docked windows appear more like normal windows when unlocked.

-- Pop-up menus are a bit more transparent but lighter to compensate up for the color-loss while making them transparent. The result is pretty sweet.

--------------- 22/04-14 ---------------

- Have gone through the theme from top to bottom. Widgets have a bit of a new look and so does toolbars. Also gave windows a bottom-border in order to make them round at all edges. I hope that if you liked the earlier versions of Lightning Unified, the you'll love this version.

Happy Easter!

--------------- 06/05-14 ---------------

- Update for window buttons. entire buttons become colored when mouse over, gray scale for background windows.
Hope you'll like it!

Cheers / hackan

--------------- 08/05-14 ---------------

- Added a light border on top of windows, gives better edged/3D feeling to the window.

- Fixed a weird ghost-border appearing between titlebar and window.

--------------- 27/06-14 ---------------

- Ubuntu One filesharing has stopped so this preset hasn't been downloadable for a little while now, sorry about that. I uploaded it directly to OpenDesktop so now you should be able to get a copy of it again.

This is one of the better looking QtCurve themes out there. Great work!

By the way, how'd you get the resize handle in the bottom-right corner of the windows? I looked through all of QtCurve's options and couldn't find a setting for that.

The resize-thing in the corner happens automatically when the windows are set to be borderless. So if you would tweak the windows-setting to have a border you would be able to pull the windows from any corner/edge.

Great :-)

Hm, my docky-trash is actually not working perfectly, so I am handling my trash in Dolphin. But it does display when I have trash and when the trash is empty correctly.
