Classic KDE Remixed Theme is a GNU/Linux desktop theme for Xfce, KDE Plasma, MATE and even GNOME based on three classic KDE 3 themes: Crystal, Nuvola and Oxygen. There are also some icons from the Open icon Library mixed in. The icon names are adopted to modern desktop standards and icons are filled in to make the theme work well with modern versions of all the major desktop environments.

Hello! I am writing this on December 3rd, 2021 at 20:10 (8:10pm) EST. Just downloaded it. Let me demonstrate the veracity, or skill, etc., of the person who wrote the above instructions. 1. Downloaded `Classic...bz2 (87MiB)` : One single click, wait a few seconds, BOOM! Right there in my chosen folder. 2. Since I chose the second one to `$HOME...` I hovered my mouse cursor over the second one: `tar xfvj Classic.../icons/` and clicked 3 quick times which will not only select the whole line to be copied, but it stores the line as if you had right-clicked on the line, making sure the entire line is covered, and selected Copy. However, this is just something...well, I don't remember where I learned it but my point is that it has very little bearing on the directions on the page, good or bad. 3. I pasted the copied line and hit `<Enter>` and, Whoa!! 4. I could not believe what I was seeing! The files copied to the destination zoomed up my screen at speeds I didn't think my screen was capable of reaching! I have a new-ish laptop that is no slouch! AMD Ryzen 5, 8 Gigs of RAM, an AMD Radeon, so middle-of-the-road as they say, but still! Well, anyway my point was that when the person had said, "...and that's it." That was it!! I must admit, I had to check, just to be sure. After all, that was too simple and too fast. Or, at least more so than usual. 5. **(optional)** So I typed, `cd ~/.local/share/icons/` and yeah! It was all there, all perfectly set up as if it had been there a while. Beautiful, really. (**N.B.:** if anyone is wondering what the `~/` is at the start of the above line that I did a `cd` (change directory), when you are at your `$HOME`, which you can always return to by just **cd**, but anyway, when already home, when you want to `cd` somewhere, if the beginning of the address starts with $HOME or `home/yourname/...` you can save some typing and headaches by just putting the `~/` that basically says, _"Look, we both know that I am home already AND the address I need to go to starts with (either one of the 2 mentioned) home, let's just start from there to save typing, hmm?" 6. Still here? Great! Because here is where I finally and definitely (instead of hints and maybe-compliments) tell the person who wrote the directions as well as all of you, that I (we) could not have had any better instructions even if it had come from Linus Torvalds himself. Seriously! Whoever you are, you did a wonderful job!! Thank you very much: I had been searching all over for a decent Classic KDE. I greatly appreciate it. Respectfully,

Michael C.
