Better detection of user settings

Add rounded borders around fields and list.
Add fake shadows on text: give a better result with bright wallpapers/plasma themes

- 0.3
Fix gap in the center panel (need tests)
Use kde4-config --localprefix instead of ~/.kde

Fix wallpaper detection when the path is a directory, not a picture (like /usr/share/wallpapers/Air)

 Lack of a file

I generated my own theme using this, and copy into system by copyFromUserToSystem.sh on (K)ubuntu.
It really worked well and looked so beautiful :)

But I realized that it didn't seem to have copied input-shadow.svg to system folder. I guess it's a bug. Please fix it.

 Day and Night Wallpaper

I'm using, as my wallpaper, Day and Night Wallpaper (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=118636), and the kdm theme doesn't seem to jive with it - the background is just black. Perhaps in the future it could use be able to use a wallpaper set by the linked app?

It is hard to do because you need administrator rights to save a kdm theme.

I am waiting lightdm to be more advanced.
I think lightdm's wallpaper could be loaded as avatars, ie. lightdm could read a specific file in user directory.

I don't have time currently but I add it to my todo list.
If I fail to fix it, I will try to improve lightdm in order to make it able to show user's wallpaper.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
