Sysadventures: The one about desktop tweaking

Nothing like some new freshness.

Nothing like some new freshness.

So, yeah. I guess you could say that I did a little digital spring cleaning this evening.

What you see in the picture above is the Ubuntu (Linux) operating system. It comes packaged with a pretty decent default look to begin with. But I figured I could try and freshen it up a little bit. Lo and behold there’s actually a ton of desktop tweaking opportunities out there for any operating system just a couple of duckduck.go searches away.

My tweaks #

  1. Installed the Flattastic theme pack and
  2. combined it with an icon pack called Numix circle before
  3. topping it off by installing the simple white theme for Firefox.

It did take a little fiddling to find a nice combination between theme and icon-theme. But yeah. Now the desktop feels both fun and fresh™. :)
