The icon theme is courtesy MIB here (the Magenta theme), the Window decorations are Corindon Purple, from "Get new themes", and the cursor is an animated one (you should try it; it's really cool!), Protozoa Grey here. For some reason, neither screenshot program would show the cursor, even with "Include mouse pointer" turned on.

KDE4, is finally a win, on this server machine. Think I'll do it again on my netbook.

Crap. I need this desktop back but he Magenta Theme is gone, and the wallpaper crashed with my netbook. :(

Never mind, found the theme but have no clue where I got the wallpaper.

Oh you sweetheart, you added it! Thank you!

The Ultimate Magenta icons aren't working in KDE5 - they're KDE4.3.

I unpacked them, tried the html file in the extracted folder, everything, it seems, nothing is working. Also tried to add it as a packed file in SystemSettings, it said that it's "not a valid theme archive file" or something to that effect.

I know better, so am thinking it's just too outdated for KDE5?

You'll see mine after I get openSUSE and Manjaro installed... Very nice, this. :)

Well, we need to wait a bit longer, as I'm going to dump Mageia altogether. It simply will not work with newer hardware. openSUSE is next, it will go where Mageia is now.
I'm going to also have to roll up the Ultimate Magenta Icons package that MIB had to get those icons, to get it updated. Hopefully, maybe gnome-colors-purple would do it. We'll see. I don't think they're magenta enough though to go with the wallpaper.

There is a wee bit of a problem though in XFCE4. I clicked to Arrage icons, and...

Kid of ran off the screen... just a wee bit...

I click to Arrange icons again, no effect.

I need to do some investigating on this.

Yeah looks like you ran out of screen there.

Time to show off a bit again then...

WOW. You did 'er up this time! I like that. :)

Very minimalistic... For now. Clickety-click the thumbs. Finally dawned on me to use them.
