Irixium brings the appearance of IRIX to the Plasma desktop. By modern standards it feels positively clunky. But if you hanker after the good old days, maybe it’s up your street.

In case you didn’t know, IRIX is a discontinued operating system developed by Silicon Graphics (SGI) to run on the company’s proprietary MIPS workstations and servers.

This is another macOS like theme for Plasma. In our opinion it has the edge on McMojavae.

McMojave KDE is a Mac OS X Mojave like theme for Plasma. We are big fans of this theme but that Apple icon might just be a step too far for some Linux users.


23. W11OS

Do you really want your beautfiul and elegant KDE desktop to have the appearance of Windows 11?

Here’s the light version. We are definitely not going to use this theme as our default. Ever! But maybe you want to play a prank on a friend?


24. We10XOS

We’re showing the dark theme. We’ve put this theme last. There’s a reason why, but we’re not telling 🙂


There are many other KDE themes available, and we’re bound to have missed some people’s favourites. This might be because we have different tastes, or that the theme hasn’t yet made it to the current release of KDE. Notable examples include Helium and Nilium.

  1. I loved IRIX with 4Dwm window manager. It was based on the classic Motif window manager. That reminds me, I must try Motif again, it was open sourced eventually.

  2. None of them have a transparent kicker. Also too much darkness. I just build my own from 3 to 4 other styles. If you are in the know it is easy. Inkscape can be your friend. If you want some color, dig up the old oxygen kicker icon set. The current rage of dark and no color is hard on old eyes.

  3. I concur with James, for older eyes (68) dark is not a good choice. I certainly understand younger eyes enjoying the contrast and lower brightness. I’m pretty happy with the ChromeOS Light theme but use either Breeze Extra Icons or Breeze Rounded Icons along with Breeze window decorations. Frankly I have not seen a window decoration I would change Breeze for, they baked that cake just right!
