The way KDE4 should look

Posted by Rahul on November 21, 2009 | Comment

In case you were not aware of it, the best theme for KDE4 is Bespin. Not Oxygen, not qtcurve. You might say that themes are like desktop wallpapers – to each his own. I would disagree. KDE4 brought along a slew of improvements and new paradigms to the Linux Desktop Environment and in its small way Bespin does that as far as theming on the desktop is concerned. Insanely customizable, it will allow your desktop to have the sort of look that you will fall in love with it.

Some features that I especially like about it:

  • “Air Like circle Overlays in Window backgrounds”
  • “Behave rather Maccish – except file management most other things activate on single click”
  • “Slim Sliders”
  • “Hacks – Animate all Tree views”
  • “Presets – switch configurations on the fly”
  • And some more ..

So, go ahead and try it! Most popular distros have a package for it. For Gentoo grab it from the kde-testing overlay (x11-thems/bespin-9999).
