-Solarized terminal theme for KDE 4's Konsole terminal client. This was adapted
+
+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](https://github.com/altercation/solarized/blob/9f1ba40686ccbf54f10851d4f1a14830fa543ae9/xresources-colors-solarized/Xresources) 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`
+
