Thanks for the comment.

I purposefully removed the stripes when I revised the appearance of the progressbars. I'm also pretty sure progressbar animations have always been off.

The good news is, here's what you can do to bring them back:

Open the "Configure QtCurve" program (inside Appearance -> Style). Then go to "Custom Shades" at the bottom of the listbox to the left. Change the second textbox value to a value higher or lower than 1.00, depending on how bright/dark you want the stripes to be.

Next, go to "Progressbars" on the listbox to the left, and select "Striped" in the second dropdown box from the top.

Hope that helps. :-) - Feb 16 2010
I'm not aware of any dark Pearl Plasma theme. I see one called "Dark Air" here on, though. Is that the one you're referring to?

Thanks for the tip regarding customizing the Plasma theme. I'll have to give it a try sometime. :-) - Feb 16 2010

The panel appearance is determined by the Plasma theme. You can change it in the Desktop Settings dialog, which you can access by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Desktop Settings". I find that "Aya" works very well for me, though there are several other themes to choose from. :-) - Dec 28 2009
I'm afraid Plasma themes are beyond me, but the existing theme "Aya" works fairly well as it adapts to the current color scheme in use. - Dec 26 2009
I don't know how to set the window transparency in Compiz as I do not use it, but if you decide to use KWin instead, all you have to do is right-click on the window frame and select an opacity value less than 100. - Jun 12 2009
Thanks. I'm not sure I understand your question, though. The only white part of the theme is the text color, which you can change easily (in System Settings->Appearance->Colors->Colors). I have a strong feeling it won't look very nice, but each to his own. :-) - Feb 05 2009

I completely agree with you regarding radios/checkboxes. This will be fixed as of the next version. - Jan 16 2009
I forgot to mention, the wallpaper can be found here: - Jan 16 2009

Hi Craig,

I was wondering if tinted groupboxes are a feasible new feature for a future release. There is a KDE 3.2+ theme ("Domino" in the "KDE 3.2 - 3.5" section) which has this feature, and I think that it would be a very nice addition that practically any sub-theme could benefit from. - Dec 04 2009
