    Heh, that’s my exact desktop, I even have the same wallpaper!

  3. Sverre Johansen says:

    That looks really good. What kind of theme and background image did you use?

    I try this on and off with every new distribution release, and it always leaves me annoyed. A host of applications will make presumptions about either the font colour or the background colour but not the other.

  5. That’s rather nice. Where does the wallpaper come from? What is the theme you use? Can we also see what the windows look like? Am I bothering you with all my questions :) ?

    Cool, Whats the theme and where can I get that wallpaper.

    I also have a procrastination problem….

    Wow, nice.

    What GTK theme you’re using?

    The first problem you’ll hit is that, hopefully, your browser respects your desktop settings…. except nobody’s web sites do.

    CSS that hard codes the text to black, but does not touch the background-color. Uh oh!

  9. Mike says:

    Oooh! What a nice background.

    Got a link to the image (with or without the text)?

  17. Benoît Dejean says:

    Would you have the same wallpaper but saying “Don’t work” ?

    I’m using a modified Glossy theme:

    bruno@reginaldo:~$ cat .themes/GNOME\ Black/index.theme
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=GNOME Black

    Haha, the wallpaper looks sweet. I think I may have to ditch my silver theme and go back to dark. :)
