About

Solarized themes for KDE Color Palette, Konsole and Kate.

Solarized Konsole Theme

  • Solarized Dark.colorscheme
  • Solarized Light.colorscheme

These are Solarized terminal theme files for KDE 4's Konsole terminal client, by https://github.com/phiggins

This was adapted from the Xresources file from March 31, 2011 and so contains the same color designations present there.

Solarized Kate Theme

  • Solarized Dark.kateschema
  • Solarized Light.kateschema
  • Solarized Dark.katesyntax
  • Solarized Light.katesyntax

These files provide color themes and syntax highlighting for Kate editor. Kate is the embedded KDE editor used within Kdevelop, Kile, Kwrite, etc. So the color changes will be applicable to all KDE programs with editor components.

The highlighting is "bare": It provides generic colors and does not handle various language highlightings. But you can choose Solarized colors for the languages you use with the KDE Color Chooser palette.

Solarized KDE Color Palette

When you want to customize your highlighting, you will be presented with the color chooser window. It can also be executed as kcolorchooser. The "Solarized_Colors" file provides a palette for the kcolorchooser
