1. Below titlebar there is a thin blue line. How can I remove it? Do I need to have  Kvantum theme engine installed?
Edit: Acctually I can see now that this is window border. How can I change it to the same color as title bar?

2. I've found Dynamo Plasma   1…
but there is only bright color. Where I can find that dark on the screenshot above?

Sorry for the late reply:

1 Edit the decoration.svg file you can
find in the theme directory, under
or ~/.kde/share/apps/aurorae/themes
(if you're on kubuntu).
Any change you make to that file requires
kwin to be restarted ( kwin --replace ).
Or you can just work on a copy of Dynamo,
all it takes is to create a copy of the theme dir,
assign a new name,  changing the name in the
metadata file and to Dynamorc too.

2 Haven't released it yet. It was "broken", and i
still need to fix it. I will, once i'll have some free 
time to complete the work

I am hoping for gtk3 theme....
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Hmm, this is hard. Maybe i'll try with a GTK2 theme,
but so far never thought about GTK3 (also, since
i do not use any GTK3 app), but can't tell.

Hi hombre! Any news on when the dark plasma theme might be released? It looks pretty cool
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
It's been a lot since i worked on it and i'm aware it must be finished.
Haven't use KDE4 with plasma for a while (on the desktop i use BE::Shell,
on the notebook i'm already running KDE Plasma 5) and also had a very
busy period. 
Maybe later if you're interested i'll send you the beta Dynamo Dark in a note.

I found colour bug there is no colors in kde appmenu font/text,it's menu in top of screenshot.…
dmbkiwi Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2014
Just updated, and the splitters work, and the tab text colour is fixed.  However, the buttons are no longer flat - that was what I liked most about this theme - it was completely flat.  Any chance to fix that - or where can I tweak it?
dmbkiwi Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2014
Looking through things, I think the button shadows are in the svg file, which makes it a bit more tricky to adjust?
Hombremaledicto Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2014
Yes, the shadows are in the svg. There's also to
make small changes within the config to reduce
frame.right and frame.bottom.
I'll send you a version with no shadows later ;)
