Not to be snarky but have you even bothered to look and see the wealth of wallpapers Mint comes with? Or the selection of Cinnamon, GTK and icons themes available in a default Mint install?thom_A wrote:Yeah. Most people don't use default graphics. But it doesn't hurt presenting good graphics for defaults. And I'm open to leaving them as they are if they're good. Of course, this is subjective.
I don't know how many times I've downloaded Mint ISO'S in the past only to discard them because of this boring gray default background. I was thinking, "Do they really think it's cute and looks pro?" Give me a break. There are hundreds of artists out there who would be willing to provide good graphics for free.
And the thing is that I've probably installed the current Mint flavors dozens and dozens of time on 4 computers, testing, retesting, configuring, changing defaults, etc. It would save tremendous amounts of time if defaults are to your liking.
But I can't complain. It's free and it's running smoothly.
The default theme is kinda drab but all you have to do is take the effort to go to settings and the entire look can be changed with a few clicks.
