Plasma™ comes with multiple themes. The Plasma™ theme defines how the different components of Plasma™ are displayed (e.g. Plasmoids, panels, widgets).

Customizing Plasma™ theme

In this module you can:

  • install and choose Plasma™ themes

  • edit Plasma™ themes

  • remove Plasma™ themes

If you want to remove a theme, use the overlay icon at the bottom right of the theme icon. To undo this action click on the icon. If you hit Apply or OK the themes selected for removal are actually deleted, so you cannot undo individual or all deletions.

If the plasma-sdk package is installed on your system, a button appears hovering a theme preview and lets you start the Plasma Theme Explorer.
