Toying around with a different look for one of my systems.  Rather inspired by the new KDE 5 theme, bringing it back (more or less) to my KDE 4 and Windows desktops.  The taskbar panel isn't a match but *shrug* I like it.




Window decorators - Descartes Breeze (Aurorae)

Widget theme - QtCurve, colored flat

Plasma - Hex

Icons - FaenzaFlattr
