I don't use any scripts, just adapted it to the looks I prefer in the System Settings. You can edit Themes to some extend and save it under your own name. Make sure to save the Plasma session on logout, so nothing changes when you log back in again.

As for doing this by scripts, have a look at the various entries in the "Contributors Corner" section of the forum.

FWIW: your desktop is called Plasma, KDE is the name of our community.


Currently running Kubuntu 20.10 beta, Plasma 5.19.5, Frameworks 5.74.0, Qt 5.14.2, kernel 5.8.0-25
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

Thanks but the main problem is that I don't know how to edit themes
I don't know how to configure them or create a new theme at all

Go to System Settings -> Appearance and choose which part of a Theme you would want to modify. You can not edit the theme directly as a them is composed of several parts like Plasma Style, Application Style, Window Decorations, Color, etc, you can edit those individually though.Select the style, click on the pen in the lower right and modify what you want.
If you want to create your own style you should have a look at Kvantum which is a style editor: https://store.kde.org/p/1005410/
There are numerous entries in this forum, as well as on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/9 ... e_kvantum/
