Thank you! I can't promise a light version of the theme. I am not as passionate about light themes since I feel a huge discomfort in my eyes from them.

Why does your theme not uninstall? That is a problem! Where is all the icons for applications, used in Manjaro KDE? This is an issue. It would be a great theme if it worked? Thanks

Hi! Here is the rather late and long explanation. The global theme file (.../plasma/look-and-feel/com.gitlab.pwyde.monochrome-kde/metadata.desktop) has Papirus icons set as a dependency. Hence it will automatically download the Papirus icon theme from https://store.kde.org/p/1166289

The issue is that the icon theme must be installed using a install script, which will of course not be executed automatically when downloaded by Plasma.

Please see the project page as stated in the description above: https://gitlab.com/pwyde/monochrome-kde

Issues/questions/suggestions are better handled by creating an issue on the project page. Also available on GitHub if that is preferred: https://github.com/pwyde/monochrome-kde

Man, I tell ya what. I was looking for this sort of color theme as I just switched to Plasma. Nice instructions for noobs like me. I gotta say, it looks so good with orange folders. Great job man. Also, any chance to share your wall above? Thanks.

Global Themes in Plasma are Meta- or Super-Themes, capable of changing multiple aspects of the desktop environment at once, like Window Decoration, Plasma Theme, Color Scheme, Icon Theme etc. In addition, one can define the complete Layout, like what panel to use where, the menu type used and much more.

An example Global Theme:
