Description:

A theme for Yakuake 2.9 with great support for transparency.

As the title says it's made to look like the panels from the default KDE 4.1 plasma theme.

All I did was create a plasma panel, grab some screenshots with red background and then gimp everything. I edited and segmented the screenshots according to the default Yakuake theme.

Enjoy and let me know if you find any problem.


Install
Download the skin archive from this page.
Open Yakuake configuration window and go to Appearance tab.
Click on Install Skin and browse to where you downloaded it.
Select it from the list of available skins and apply.

Enable Transparency
* Your Window Manager (kwin/compiz) must support your hardware and have Desktop Effects enabled. *
For Yakuake skin:
Open Yakuake configuration window and go to Appearance tab.
Enable "Use translucent background if possible" and apply.
For main window (actual console) background:
Right click on console and select "Edit Current Profile...", and go to Appearance tab.
Click on "Edit" button and use the "Background Transparency" slider.

Change Background Color
* Custom background color is only available without transparency. *
Open Yakuake configuration window and go to Appearance tab.
Click on background color button and select your preffered tint.
Make sure "Use translucent background if possible" is disabled.
Apply and enjoy.

I like this skin, but it would be better to make active tab more distinctive, by using different backgrond than other tabs.

Please try this thin and you would understand what I am proposing.

I'd forgotten about this theme, but you inspired me to make my Air 4.3/4.4 themes later. (Thanks!) This looks great, but you might find it easier in the future to use the SVG sources from the Plasma theme, if you're basing it off of the panel or similar. This isn't a criticism, just a tip.
Cheers

Hi hellblade,

I'm Yakuake's maintainer, and I really like your skin. Would you be interested in having it included with Yakuake? (Credited to you, of course.)
