Plasma Themes Contest

By Frank
Published: Mar 21 2008

The KDE Plasma team is inviting everyone to participate in a contest
to create Plasma themes from which a select few will be chosen to be
included as a part of the upcoming KDE 4.1 release. This is a great
opportunity to contribute to a very visible component of the KDE
project, the Plasma desktop.

Plasma Themes Contest

A great feature of Plasma is the ability to theme components of the desktop using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVGs). This means there is no need for you to know C++ or any other programming language to create a great looking theme.

You only need to know how to use one of many graphics tools (e.g. Krita, Inkscape, The GIMP, Karbon, etc.) and that is all. Depending on your prowess with such tools, you can create great looking plasma themes in as little as an hour.

You can find a quick guide to creating Plasma themes in the Creating a Plasma Theme in 7 Easy Steps [http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Development/Tutorials/Plasma/Theme]
Techbase article.


Submit your work in the Plasma Themes section of KDE-Look.org website [http://kde-look.org/index.php?xcontentmode=76]. Put a notice '(for theme contest)' in the title of the theme. Submissions will be accepted as a tar.gz file of the theme folder. Submission deadline is 9th April, 2008 18:00 UTC. Themes submitted after the deadline will not be considered for this release. Winners will be announced by 18th April, 2008. All artwork must be original or otherwise meet the requirements for distribution as part of a GPL licensed project. Preferred license is LGPL.

Guidelines: Consistency. All theme parts should fit nicely with each other. Completeness. Although Plasma automatically loads required images from the default theme when they are not present in the active theme, it is suggested that you include SVGs for all theme elements. Uniqueness. The unique always stand out in the crowd; so should your theme. Have fun! The Plasma Team.

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.
