Description:

A futuristic vectorial theme for dark desktops

Have you ever dreamed about having your computer look like a sci-fi interface? I did.

I tried to develop a clean, monochrome and homogeneous theme with something futuristic to fit in KDE 4 desktops with dark color schemes.
I use this theme in everyday life (at work and at home) trying to extend it as much as possible.

Any help is appreciated.

The DarkFuture complete desktop pack is made of:
DarkFuture icon theme (this one)
DarkFuture color scheme (get it here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/DarkFuture?content=132559)
DarkFuture desktop theme (give me a couple of weeks)

How to install from Bazaar
If you want to easily update this theme don't use the tar.gz, follow these steps:
1) install bazaar
2) go in your ~/.kde/share/icons folder
3) type:
bzr branch lp:darkfuture DarkFuture

To update it just run:
bzr pull
inside your ~/.kde/share/icons/DarkFuture folder.

Launchpad announcements will be used to advertise updates (together with this page, obviously)

Hi! I have just uploaded a new Icon Theme called DarkFuturePlus (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=169292

In esence is your theme but with some more icons. If you like to add these missing icons to yours just see the differences.txt file that is inside the tar.gz.

Cheers!

P.D.: Great icon theme!!!

I really love these icons and can't imagine using anything else with my oxygen transparent theme in zion reversed colors. There are some KDE tools like system monitor or the tray icons (which I realize are managed separately) that could use your design, but overall this is a comprehensive theme and ties together the dark look well.

You're launcher icon is nice, but I actually prefer a different one because I like it to stand out from the other icons. I thought this one juxtaposed nicely next to yours while still fitting with the same general idea: https://v-4-vengeance.deviantart.com/art/Kde-start-137413485.

Does not scale well for a small toolbar height and icon size. Jagged and pixilated appearance. KDE 4.12.3

For example: http://i.imgur.com/WvEGStn.png

uhm... it should scale: all icons are in svg format.

Can you provide a screenshot of an icon theme with circular icons scaling better than DarkFuture?

Second question: can you confirm that this "pixelated effect" happens also with filled icons, such as kmail when new mail arrive? It could be that increasing border width could help.

Yes, nouveKDEgrey scales beautifully.

I do not use kmail.

I absolutely love the theme!! I have installed it however it differs from the screenshot. The plasma system tray icons, such as kmix and network connections icons have not changed to those in the screenshot. Could someone help me correct this problem?

I use these icons and really like them. The only bits out of place are the battery indicator and the wireless strength icons. If you get the chance I'd really dig it if you made some pie-chart looking icons.

Fantastic job no matter what!

Kalarm and Clementine icons are now part of the Dark Future theme.

Check them using bazaar and let me know if you like it :-)

I really like this theme. Minimalism on the desktop is my preference and this suits me perfectly.

The only Icons out of place for me are Kalarm and Clementine

Kalarm is not a problem: I already have an icon for that, I just have to add it.

I don't know clementine, is it this?

Let me know and I'll add them!

Your icon set impressed me enough to register an account here: thanks for all your work and time!

I'm using it together with the Ghost 2 theme collection (plasma, window and color).

Sorry, I'm not sure to understand: did you mean you are not able to download the theme from the download link on this page or through the bzr command as explained in "How to install from Bazaar" section?

BTW check if you can access the project page on https://launchpad.net/darkfuture

Let me know.

Clicking on Download link on kde-look.org failed to let me access it.

Maybe this is because I linked the launchpad file directly.

While I figure out why this happens you can download the file from launchpad: just click on the big green button on the right column ;-)

Yes.
I tried to make this myself, and found adding the glow quite easy. But as you said, KDE doesn't understand filters, so glow doesn't show.

Saving icons as images would solve the problem, but that's something I don't want to do, and I do believe that you don't either.

Thanks.

Yeah.

We will wait for ksvgtopng to support halos. This is a vectorial theme and I'd like to keep it as is if I can.

Why don't you try the colorizer script?

Using bazaar you'll be able to download the trunk branch (always in development) where you will find the colorizer script: just put 000000 in it and wait a couple of seconds to have a brand new theme with black icons.
