Any themes that would look good with this background?

Post by blackplague1347 »

My background is this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... ot-7b_.jpg

Right now I just have the standard Shiki-Wise window theme, but the green seems out of place (I know, I know, this is Mint) with the fiery goodness of my background.

Oh, and I want to put Conky on my desktop, on the top right section. What color/font do you think would show best?

Actually if there is a way to make replace the orange of the background pic with green...that would be pretty sweet also. :D

The Shiki-colors theme comes in several different variations (colours). If you search in Synaptic for Shiki, you'll be sure to find them...have you tried "shiki-wine-theme" yet?

Another option is to have a look at

1: Open your image up in the GIMP
2: In the menu, click Colours, then Hue-Saturation
3: Click the "Master" thing so it adjusts all colours
4: Drag the "Hue" slider back and forth until you find a colour you like. :mrgreen:
