Thread: desktop theme no more customizable in plasma5

  1. #1

    Default desktop theme no more customizable in plasma5

    on my PC=Dell latitude E6510, RAM=8Gb, GPU=GT218 NVS 3100M, CPU=i7 Q 720 @ 1.60GHz
    upgraded 13.2 to leap 42.1,
    using wolfi repos, I'm running KDE 4.14.17 and plasma 5.6.0, KDE frameworks 5.20.0, KDE applications 15.12.3.


    Am i missing something or in [systemsettings>workspace theme>desktop theme] lack the custmize button??
    the one that in the past allowed to customize the selected theme applying for example a theme to the widgets and another to the buttons...

    This option has been removed in Plasma 5.6.
    You can only choose the desktop theme as a whole.

    You still can override certain parts of the configured theme by copying files from another theme into the corresponding subdirectories in ~/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/themename.

    The reasoning was this:
    This removes the theme editor thing in the Desktop Theme KCM.

    Most settings in there are either broken or useless nowadays.

    The only setting I would miss is different Analog Clock faces which could be done in the Analog Clock directly. What I am missing in general is a custom Panel color/texture or something like that which we don't have in here anyway.
    See https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/126953/

    Feel free to complain to the Plasma developers though.

    The system themes are in /usr/share/plasma/desktoptheme/.

    In general, ~/.local/share/xxx is the user-specific override for /usr/local/xxx/.
