Its always the simple things isnt it? Ah well, theme's working awesome
(minus some graphical corruption with window decorations but im gonna
play around with Xorg.conf to try to figure that out. Honestly; a
reboot is probably the last thing I would've tried to try and get
theme to work correctly haha, im actually surprised though that KDE
doesn't do an entire desktop wide "refresh" when the theme changes,
just to load, what would be NOW, the 'damages' to the windows and to
plasma has a whole.
