The horizontal bar that represents the amount of disk space used goes missing when i activate this theme. This is for the default Hard Disk Space Usage Widget supplied in Kubuntu 16.04. hope that you can try to fix this. thanks.

I love this theme and have been using it for several years. However, I recently discovered that, when used with Plasma 5.5 & 5.6, the panel length arrows do not appear when resizing a panel and you have to guess their location. These are the markers at either end of the panel that are used for resizing the panel. This is only a problem with the Slim Glow theme in that the other themes that I have tried properly render the panel length arrows. I prefer the Slim Glow Theme so I hope that you will fix this.

Many thanks for your work!

Just so you know I've posted a modified version of your Slim Glow colour scheme on my page. I have only modified the colour scheme not the theme and have credited you for creating the original. Please check the screenshots/download it and tell me what you think please (improvements are welcome) This is my first time uploading anything so any tips would be helpful. Also if you want me to remove it let me know and I'll be glad to oblige you. Like I said I'm new at this and if I've broken any rules let me know and I'll correct it at once.

The alt-tab "informative" version doesn't theme. It's opaque and looks generally ugly. I notice that a lot of themes have this problem (Produkt is one that doesn't, and Air of course).

Great theme, though I do prefer the Oxygen tray icons over Slim Glow's. E.g. the scissors for klipper look really jagged. Still, REALLY nice theme!

Hi, somehow the "full battery" icon seems not to have been updated, please see this link: http://ompldr.org/iaDg5aw
Is this a bug?

By the way, this is the best KDE plasma theme I know of. Great work.

Have no idea... will have to see where the heck it takes that icon from. Thanks for reporting!

Should be OK now - it was a question mark character that got rendered like that for some reason - I've converted the letter to paths, and it is ok now.

Don't forget to clear cache after updating.

I came up with the same reason.

When the default themes were packaged in kdebase, it was all ok. But now, kde-look is a much more convenient vector of distribution.

Hello, forget this post. Everything is OK now. During upgrade from KDE 4.5.5 to 4.6.0 was not installed appropriate package.

Really good theme -- fantastic job!

I've noticed a minor glitch when using this theme with KDE 4.4: The icons for all the buttons show up dark with a light shadow, making them very difficult to read.

The Glaze theme has the same problem. Any chance of getting this fixed? Cheers!

Yes, it will be fixed in KDE SC 4.6
