See lookandfeelexplorer Also, there's a task at T11746 which has a different proposed implementation of doing things which I think makes a lot more sense. Lets not split the discussion especially when this only represents one side of the comments.

> See lookandfeelexplorer There's no way to save the current theme settings as a new global theme package, isn't it? What exactly should I look for? > Also, there's a task at T11746 I am not sure, why both should be mutual exclusive.

(In reply to David Edmundson from comment #1) > See lookandfeelexplorer As Postix implies, this doesn't really satisfy the request here. It doesn't actually have a "save current settings as a new theme" feature (or at least, not that I can find). > Also, there's a task at T11746 which has a different proposed implementation > of doing things which I think makes a lot more sense. Lets not split the > discussion especially when this only represents one side of the comments. Assuming you're referring to https://phabricator.kde.org/T11746#202374, I can accept that, and we can keep the conversation there.
Comment 4 David Edmundson 2019-10-15 22:21:19 UTC
It's maybe a bit obscure. new theme -> fill in the details -> layout from current plasma setup
Comment 5 Nate Graham 2019-10-15 22:22:25 UTC
Thanks! That is quite obscure and could do with some UI polish IMO. Still it's there, so that's nice.

> lookandfeelexplorer -> new theme Sorry, I still don't find it. :-( Can you please point me to the lookandfeelexplorer, maybe show me a screenshot? The only buttons I find at the look and feel section are for downloading a new theme or to install a theme by a file.
Comment 7 Christoph Feck 2019-10-16 08:30:55 UTC
You need to install 'plasma-sdk'. https://cgit.kde.org/plasma-sdk.git/tree/
Comment 8 postix 2019-10-16 08:41:38 UTC
Thanks! Unfortunately it was not preinstalled on my distro (Manjaro) and so I could not find it. Nevertheless I would have expected in a different place, namely in the system settings, anyway. That's why I suggest to integrate it into the system settings, to overhaul its UI and to add an option to only create a theme for a local installation (currently an email and website is required to create a new theme for example). But maybe let's discuss it here: https://phabricator.kde.org/T11746 :)

Work on https://phabricator.kde.org/T11746 has stalled; re-opening this since another person has asked for it as well and I still think it's a reasonable request. :)
