Description:

Kvantum is an SVG-based theme engine for Qt4 and KDE4, i.e. a program for styling Qt4 applications with SVG images.

Kvantum started as a fork of QuantumStyle, which is not developed anymore but whose author continued his work under another name (https://github.com/DexterMagnific/QSvgStyle). However, apart from the basic logic behind them, they are very different creatures. In Kvantum, the emphasis is on elegance, usability and practicality.

Kvantum comes with a default dark theme, which should be used alongside the KDE color scheme included in the source and is inspired by the default theme of Enlightenment. Creation of realistic themes like that for KDE was my first reason to make Kvantum but it allows themes with very different looks and feels, whether they be photorealistic or cartoonish, 3D or flat, embellished or minimalistic, or something in between.

*** Compilation ***

Install Qt4 and X11 development packages (libqt4-dev, libx11-dev and libxext-dev in debian-based systems), open a terminal inside the Kvantum folder and issue this command: qmake && make

*** Installation ***

sudo make install

Then select Kvantum for both widget style and color scheme in System Settings. Please read the file INSTALL for simple instructions on usage and more!

*** Theme Making ***

For instructions on how to change configuration or make new themes, please read the files Theme-Config and Theme-Making in the doc folder!

*** Notes ***

(1) Each new theme should be accompanied by a KDE color scheme. Although Kvantum can define the main colors and also and state-specific text ones, KDE apps may need extra colors defined in the KDE color scheme (like the view color, which does not belong to Qt4 but is used by Dolphin).

(2) Kvantum does not provide window decorations. Such jobs are done by the window manager.

(3) A Qt5 version will come after a stable Qt5-based KDE has appeared in the Debian repository.




Changelog:

See ChangeLog inside the source for a more thorough list.

30 Oct 2014
------------
* Now Kvantum can rely on its own main colors defined under a new section named GeneralColors. If a color definition is missing the color scheme will be used. This secion is not necessary but is good for independence from Qt4 color schemes outside KDE.
* Made toolbox labels follow custom text colors.
* Updated the deb package.

22 Oct 2014
------------
* Added a hack variable for KTitleWidget (to remove the flat background of its label).
* Removed flat backgrounds of scroll areas inside toolboxes.

17 Oct 2014
------------
* Kvantum Manager informs the user when a theme is installed or selected.
* Added a Hacks section. Currently it contains only one hack for Dolphin. (KvGray makes use of it.)

This Theme Engine is a very good job, personally i think the default Qvantum theme is the best dark one i found for kde.
I'd like also the decoration theme used in the first screenshot, is it aurorae? where can i find it?
Thank's

Thanks a lot! Yes, the decoration is Aurorae. I couldn't include it because, as you know, Kvantum is a theme engine.

My other Kvantum themes, namely KvDark and KvGray, include Aurorae decorations. You could find them at kde-look.org. I'll update them soon.
