I recently discovered this theme and am enjoying it; but would like to make some tweaks and don't know how. For example, the inactive windows icons in the panel are very difficult to read. I would like to possibly change the font and/or font color of the inactive windows. Another example is the text within the panel is nearly impossible to read. Anyway, is there an easy way for me to change these configurations? Or is it possible for me to specify what I would like for a new theme?

This is my favorite Plasma theme and I'm so glad it's finally updated for Plasma 5. I have just one small issue: there's no indicator in the taskbar for minimized windows. I'm using the icons-only task manager with launchers always shown for some tasks, so I have no way of knowing if a window is minimized or if the application is not running.

Thanks again for the work on this theme!

Thanks, it looks great! I'm just trying to figure out Inkscape now to change my local copy's icon padding to be similar to Breeze.

I'm trying to get the icons in the task manager to be the same size as when using the Breeze theme. (I like the space between the icons, just trying to update the padding inside.)

Top is Breeze, bottom is Helium:

I think I left too wide edges.

I think I can reduce 2px to the edge, if you try to reduce even more, would have to reduce the curve of the corners.

There's annoying bug when you can't close plasma notifications when using "Helium" theme. However everything's fine with default "Air" theme. Is it worth to create a bug report on KDE bug-tracker or is it bug of Helium theme?

Please see this video for details: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42072159/plasma-bug.mkv

I'll take it into account (not if you tried with another theme). but for the moment there will be a new version of Helium until 2014

At the moment I'm working on the artwork for the distro KaOS. Helium so the theme will be paused for a while (later this year or early 2014)

I apologize for the neglect of the theme.

There are missing icons for the windows title bar. Buttons for keep above and keep below.

Also, no feedback that the keep on all screens button is pressed or not.

Any way I could help you with this?

Love the theme. I installed Helium-One via System Settings using Kubuntu 13.04.

One problem: Lancelot. The menu bar that contains "Lock Screen" "Leave" "Switch User" and the Lancelot config Chalice icon isn't themed so that one small part looks like the "Oxygen" theme - which is dark and hard to read. I can provide a screenshot if it's needed.

It would be great if this was fixed in your up-coming new version.

Thanks for the cool theme!

you are shipping:
a) lancelot/.theme.config.kate-swp
b) svg with executable bits set
(notice those when tried to package latest version for openSUSE)
Thanks for the great theme btw! :-)

Thank you for your great work!

I find the shadows in the preview 4 far too strong. I don't mind the size but they definitely could be softer or more transparent.

So assuming that the light in a UI should make sense, which is questionable, here is my attempt at reasoning this out.

In your current design shadows end with a sharp round edge on -all- corners, which makes little sense light-wise, unless you imagine many strong point-lights hovering over every UI element.
The only case with equally sized sharp shadows would be if the strong imaginary light source were very far away but in this case the shadow size would be close to zero because the viewer and the far away light source are aligned.
(+ as far as I know KDE widgets don't support shadow offset, so they have to be aligned)

If it's just one strong light source close and directly behind, you would see differently sized shadows, which is impossible to do right now in KDE.

So the only 'reasonable' way to do this is to assume having a diffuse light source/s somewhere close to the display. In this setting you would see nice soft shadows, thus not only hiding the fact that they should have different sizes but also the number of lights becomes more or less irrelevant.

PS This is probably what went on in some of the wondrous minds sitting in the Cupertino Spaceship and pondering the same questions. ...or not.

Just came to mind... in the latest Qt5 it is actually possible to render 'real' shadows directly. No fakery required.
This is a bit insane but you could implement it in KDE quite soon.
