Description:

Installation: There are two ways for that.
1. If you use kde, just import hardcurve-0.1.qtcurve file in qtcurve settings.
2. And harder, but always working: copy qtcurve directory into $HOME/.config (this directory should contain config files and background images).

It is based on Production Curve, but with some minor differences.

Background texture is just a transparent shader, which doesn't strict color scheme. Moreover, instead of to be just a transparent noise, it is set of black/white pixels with almost full and random transparency, what resembles lighting and shades, caused by relief of coarse surface. Recent qtcurve allowes to set custom background image appart doing it a background itself (behind of which are only desktop and other windows). Sadly for now it doesn't tile image, placing only single instance in upper-left corner, so texture is sized to 2560x2560 — hopely, enough to cover most single-monitor desktops (note, gradient on window headers is result of this image). Popup menu are textured as well.

Relief is made of custom gradients. Production Curve used etched look because all other predefined reliefs have only light side of border without dark.

Since it is made for dark colors (originally for newer color scheme from kxtudio distro, but also tried with Kaos, Mustadesk2), contrast is also increased. Middle-brightness schemes like Dark Night are also may be usable. Symbols of window control buttons are colored by mouse brighter than in original.

For plasma i did not see much themes, looking hard.
Tibanna is quite relief and there is Tibanna Dark Mod — Tibanna, fixed for dark colors.
Opaquity would be nice as well with dark colors (sadly its curent version ignores color scheme at all).

Looks like i somehow removed extension from qtcurve theme pack. You can also add it for already downloaded copy. For me in kde such file is treated as zip archive, and as i added in description, it has text config and 2 images.

Why there is such archive? xx.qtcurve file is much better.

Thanks for report, i did not remember to export in time, will add this file soon.

Not all qtcurve users have kde, however, or like to start kde systemsettings in lightweight environments (lxde, xfce).

Hoped to upload it without replacing of raw directory, but could not find way to add more files (though i can add links to external resources).

Will reupload with both in one archive.
