Arch Nebula Desktop
New Years is a good time to introduce one of our favorite desktop developers, dobbie03 . Here he works with Arch Linux, and while it may seem like nothing special is happening, let’s see what it feels like when it works and how he sets it all up.
Dobbie03 says this about his setup:
I have an edited version of the default Gnome-Shell theme. All I changed is the default fonts to San Francisco Display font, I really like this font. Covergloobus with Musiq theme is the only addition to my desktop. I love an empty desktop.
We, too. If you want to see what the widgets look like when they are ready to go, check out this photo below:
And if you want to do it yourself, here’s what you’ll need:
- Deepin GTK theme for customizing windows and layout
- The Vertex icons replace the system icons that it uses in combination with the Moka icons.
- Covergloobus utility for managing playback and music on your desktop.
- Musiq theme for Covergloobus to customize your player
The end result looks clean and empty as you sit down to work – mentally refreshing, which is nice. Then, when the time comes to finish the job, he comes to life. Dobby03 explained that he even has a title bar that needs to be transparent when there are no maximized windows, and when there are, switch to a solid dark gray to make it stand out a bit. A good thing. If you like what you see, be sure to check out his blog Kinja (link below) and share the love.
