Another Refracta Wallpaper

Postby Mike » Tue Oct 18, 2016 12:09 am

Wanted a lighter wallpaper. I couldn't find the same logo as the stock wallpaper but found one online. The gimp .xcf file is included if anyone wants to change it up.

i tried downloading it, but its stuck on some "cloud" website. its probably because i didnt install adobe this or java that, but i will try again anyway when the weather improves.

the more the web "evolves" the more it reminds me of internet explorer 4. optimized for malware...

If you want to redo it with a cleaner logo, here's the file:

This was the only one I could find on my hard drive. You'll need to change the color. I can add the finished file to the wallpaper directory.

I don't know where that is in the universe but the current wallpaper is the Milky Way. That is home to our solar system which is relevant to Devuan using names of minor planets therein for releases - jessie, ascii, ceres etc.

Sorry folks, for some reason the thumbnail wasn't working when I pointed it to the file on pCloud. I changed it to another image hosting site (xomf) so hopefully you see it in the post now.

Thanks for the image, fsmithred. I think that's the one that I used.

This is the original image: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150522.html

The description says "In the dusty sky toward the constellation Taurus and the Orion Arm of our Milky Way Galaxy, this broad mosaic follows dark and faint reflection nebulae along the region's fertile molecular cloud."

No problem, I can do that. Would you like a particular color?

Oh that's great! Fits right in. One technical note . . . the logo looks a little too far to the right and a bit too low. That's important as it adjusts to different monitor sizes. You might also want to know that Devuan provides wallpaper images at these resolutions to accommodate most screen sizes - 1280x1024 and 1680x1050. Thanks for your contribution.
