Tired of the default KDE themes, color schemes, and wallpapers? Then try Caledonia, a bundle containing everything you need to spice up your desktop. Caledonia comes with a set of high-quality wallpapers, a KDE Plasma theme, a splash screen, a KDM theme, and a color scheme. You can download individual parts, or you can use the Caledonia Downloader shell script to grab the entire bundle.

Installing Caledonia components is not particularly difficult. To add the KDE Plasma theme, copy the Caledonia folder into the ~/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme directory. Open the System Settings panel, switch to the Workspace Appearance | Desktop theme section, select the Caledonia theme, and press Apply. Installing the splash theme is equally easy. In the System Settings panel, switch to the Workspace appearance | Splash screen, press the Install Theme File button, and select the Caledonia-KSplash.tar.gz tarball. Finally, to add the Caledonia color scheme, switch to Application Appearance | Colors, press the Import Scheme button, and select the Caledonia.colors file inside the Caledonia-Pack directory.
