The KDE-Look User CRAUCH (Christian Rauch) has published his theme for KBFX on KDE-Look.org. He's the first one releasing a KBFX Theme beside of Nookie, who is our main graphic artist.
The theme is designed to fit well to the SUSE KDM theme.
All in all it's a great theme, which I will review below.

I'm a long time SUSE User myself. Honestly, I just LOVE the Suse theme, that consists of a Bootsplash theme, A KDM Theme and a KDE Splash theme. So when I saw the design yesterday night, I knew I've got to give it a try.So I checked it, and here is a small review:
The first view is quite impressing. However, in the first version, the categories seemed to fall a bit apart. I thought that this is not optimal, and commented it on KDE-look. When I checked 3 hours later, I saw that Christian had considered my proposal a good one and that he had changed the category tiles in a manner, that the suse-typical white-dotted line is now separator between the categories.This really looks nice, thanks.When testing, however, I saw that something was wrong with the elements. It cut the lowest part of the element off. Unfortunatly, I thought, because I really love this theme. I commented on KDE-look again, and again, it was fixed quite fast. I do write this here because if you have the same effect on your box, you need to download the current version again.
What I love most is:
- The consistency of the theme with the white dots and the dark blue.
- The log out and the lock button.
- The way the categories are highlighted (it's just the dotted line that moves a little bit and has more contrast, really impressive and innovative)
- I would prefer the element tiles in a light blue instead of this white
- The white dotted line in the categories is some kind of strange, as it's highlighted ABOVE the category, and not below. But I will get used to it...
All in all, it's a really nice theme, and I will keep it as my theme until my own one is finished.Thank you, Christian Rauch, for this nice contribution.
