The Spectrum themes change color according to the Color Scheme you have equipped.

From System Settings:

Go to "Colors" to change your Color Scheme. Included is a classic color scheme and a new version that has headers for windows.
Go to "Plasma Style" to change between Spectrum themes. Plain themes will change color with your Color Scheme, though you may need to reapply them.
Go to "Window Decorations" to change to Spectrum's Aurorae theme, which will take on the same color as your panel and menus.

To adjust transparency of the panel and menus:

Opacity can now be changed using the script included with theme. Navigate to the Plasma Style's directory and pass a value from 0 to 99 to the script.

For example:
$ cd .local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/spectrum-classic-strawberryquartz

$ ./changeOpacity 43
Then reapply your Plasma Style in System Settings to update it.

Under Workspace: Workspace Behavior > Desktop Effects
"Background contrast" to toggle between 2 levels of transparency.
"Blur" will let you choose the strength of the blur effect as well as noise.

There are a lot of other effects in Desktop Effects to try if you are new to KDE Plasma.


Have you tried turning it off and on again? Sometimes plasma assets will not update and some may still be themed to something you previously had set. This can usually be fixed by restarting.

To restart just plasmashell, open KRunner with "Alt + F2" to execute the following:

plasmashell --replace

Global Themes

Global Themes in Plasma are Meta- or Super-Themes, capable of changing multiple aspects of the desktop environment at once, like Window Decoration, Plasma Theme, Color Scheme, Icon Theme etc. In addition, one can define the complete Layout, like what panel to use where, the menu type used and much more.

An example Global Theme:
