AIMP skin editor: www.aimp.ru/index.php?do=downl… General skin info - Some elements are accessible when you right click a button/text. - Volume can be changed by using the scroll wheel when hovering over the main window. - You can open skin options by clicking the gray arrow or by right clicking 'Menu' or the album art. - The big album art makes your player 400px wide.
The name Ladient comes from combining the words Line and Gradient.
Extract the theme to ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/
Select the theme in System Settings>Workspace Appearance>Desktop Theme>Theme
If the theme doesn't show right for some reason, delete the cache file ~/.kde/cache (machinename)/plasma_theme_smoother.kcache
The theme will not look like the preview in some ways with older KDE versions due to new design options in KDE 4.10, specifically scrollbar thickness(control of this has been added for designers), add widgets panel(tasks don't theme this now, it's done in a different file, which is a good thing). It's nothing major but be aware that some things will look slightly different but nothing should be broken.
KDE 4.10 recommended (If you use Kubuntu/Ubuntu 12.10, KDE 4.10 is in backports PPA repo, which I currently use)
Aller Sans, 8pt, Sub-pixel RGB, Hinting: slight.
Inkscape for widget SVG work, The GIMP 2.8 for preview composition.
Update 1.1 - 16 Feb 2013
- Fixed 1px spacing issue with inputbox. - Added various system tray icons for KDE4 apps. - Added credits in the readme to Malcer for using some systemtray icons from the Caledonia plasma theme. - Added new Steam icon.
Update 1.2 - 21 Feb 2013
- Added new system tray icons for various apps, dropbox, VLC, kalarm, dialog, kgpg, kaffeine. - Added toolbar-icons in Smoother style.
Works on Windows 8 and 8.1. (Does not work on Windows 7) This visual style is made to have no accent color, only black, grey and white. The music player in the preview image is AIMP with Ladient ( fav.me/d6e0oqk )
Based on Gray 2014 by ezio ( fav.me/d6x6ssl ) & Gray8-final by gsw953onDA ( fav.me/d5navyx ) Credit to these guys since they did most of the work.
