[HowTo] Robot theme Setup (KDE)

Difficulty: ★★☆☆☆
This guide will show you how to set up Manjaro Plasma with what I call Robot theme (named after the wallpaper):

  • Activate the AUR if needed

  • Lets pull all the themes from the repositories and extra plasma applets:

    yay -S plasma5-applets-latte-separator plasma5-applets-latte-spacer plasma5-applets-betterinlineclock-git latte-dock-git 
    sudo pacman -S --needed arc-gtk-theme
    yay -S papirus-icon-theme kvantum-theme-arc arc-kde

    • Latte Theme: Float - KDE Store
    • Latte git may need a logout/login for working properly,
    • import Float theme to Latte.

    • To get spaces between the items in systray you need a tweak to do so. You’ll find it here
    • unpack it to ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids
    • Logout/login is required.
    • Configure Systray to have 15 px spaces.

    • You can get the wallpaper here.

Enjoy! :smiley:


Suggestion: Use sudo pacman -S --needed so only packages the user is missing will be installed. Otherwise, existing packages will be reinstalled needlessly.
