My new desktop background.


Nice work! I would like to get myself more comfortable editing these style sheets, but I'm still shaky about messing things up for the whole theme and then needing to revert. I'll get there one day.

Applying off-the-shelf themes is fairly easy, but I'm still not comfortable making big changes either, specially on Gnome itself.

On Firefox, what I did to make sure that I didn't mess things up, which I definitely did a few times, is create dedicated profiles. If you need to start over, just delete the profile and it's like it never happened. As I was experimenting I ended up with this:

Still not sure if I'll keep any of these but I think my customization fever went away for now so I'll keep things like that, probably until I decide to move on to another distribution :smile:

In Firefox, you can use the Firefox color extension

to create your own theme. I did this in order to customize the tab, menu and bookmark text color. It works well and doesn't require modification of css or any other files.

I tried that when I was still using Windows. Unfortunately, I wasn't very good at creating colours.

There's this program you can install ColorPicker to select the hexadecimal codes of any color on the screen. If you visit a site or something that you like how it uses colors, you can use that. I do it sometimes to create accent colors and whatnot. But definitely using a pre-made theme is so much easier (if you find the right one...)

I got bored of my current background, so I changed it to this.

Note I added a clock to my desktop. This one.

Hi, I have been following this post for a few days already getting ideas so here is my desktop

A lot of what I have read here has been very helpful, this is probably not my final version but I am happy with it


I really like that background, can you share where you got it from please?

Oh, uhh... I just did a search for cool aesthetic desktop backgrounds.

There's another new distro called Vanilla OS if you didn't know.

Why do all distro’s use the nautilus file manager instead of nemo :face_with_peeking_eye:
