10 This theme as a big advantage for me. It uses an easy on the eyes background color, but keeps black text. Black text is a must, as I have to use an ill-behaved application for work.

This applications uses the system text color with a grey background for most of its dialogs. Thus, any theme with white text renders the dialogs unreadable.

Not a problem here. Plus, it looks good with my current wallpaper.

Any chance of a screenshot? Always looking for ways to improve my themes.

I could send a screenshot. However, the issue is a known problem with the application -- with their fix being "use a theme with black text". (Parts of the color scheme are apparently hard coded into the application.)

9 +Using this with the GTK2 theme. Looks and works great! Thank you. Have you considered doing an SDDM version?

Can't get SDDM to run. Could do a splash screen. Not sure if anyone uses them tho.

Sorry to hear that. Which distro are you using for KDE? I'm running Antergos. I remember seeing steps on how to install and get it to run by default by terminal. Would you like me to try to find the link? I *think* this works for any distro. Also, I have to admit...I don't use a splash myself. I prefer to go from login manager to desktop without the splash.

Running LinuxFromScratch. Tried nearly a dozen different "fixes" but none of them worked. Perhaps you could have a go at the SDDM theme? :)

After installing SDDM, I've been able to change from LightDM by using the following:
sudo systemctl disable lightdm
sudo systemctl enable sddm
reboot
I don't know if that will work with LFS or not.
I did find a SDDM Theme that I could tweak to use your wallpaper. It's called, Crown Teal. I changed the name of the folder and dropped it in /usr/share/sddm. I don't know how to do the Preview Image thing, but I can select it and use it just fine. Looks nice, too. Since it's someone else's theme, I'm not going to submit it. I also don't know much about licenses and what-not. Don't want to rock any boats. But, this works great for me. I honestly don't know if I'd change anything else. This is a beautiful theme.

Progress is being made ;)

I can't actually run sddm but can run the greeter so you can test if for me here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bDRWE9Bi5hrmsWoQ0xik1IyhbMp43zX3

That looks nice! Worked perfectly, too. I'll keep using it to see if something doesn't work right, but so far I can't find any problems. I know I've been asking a lot of questions, but here's one more...any plans for a GTK2 version to go along with the GTK3? I'm using Clearlooks-gPerfection6 to try to make apps like Chromium & Thunderbird blend in better.

I can have a go at a GTK2. The sddm is just a mockup. Needs more work but pleased it didn't explode ;-)

LOL, nope. Nothing blew up. Looking forward to future tweaks on the SDDM Theme, and very much looking forward to a future GTK2. Here's the thing that I like most about this theme; It's not 100% flat and boring. The colors are very easy on the eyes for writing or anything else, for that matter. I don't have to strain to see or do anything. I've been looking for something that didn't look like a Mac or Windows clone, and you nailed it!

I *really* like this! Very much, a lot and beautiful! It would be great to have a GTK2 & GTK3 theme to fall back on for apps like Thunderbird and other apps that have to use a different scheme. Otherwise, I'm using the theme and the window theme. Love it!
