20.04 development release.


Looks great!
How did you get the transparency???

Thanks !

The theme includes transparency, but displays it a little differently than in the gnome gnome shell. Still adding to the conky.

The transparency level depends on the theme you are using.

You can edit the gtk.css files of any theme and make the adjustments yourself.

Depending on the theme, the base colors are about here:

* Base States *

    .background {
        background-color: rgb(51, 153, 255, 0.8); 

You can use an rgba color, where the last number is the transparency level.

Thanks, I’m a theme dev myself but did not know this. I’ll add it to master later!

Frogshair, is that conky?

The time and are date displayed in the showtime applet and the rest is conky. I’ve changed and added a few things since the screen shot.

Nice, can you post your latest screenshot & Conky config?

The conkyrc has mixed authorship including me. Install conky-all first. AWIP :slightly_smiling_face:

Broken codeblock, but nice!

It needs cleanup for sure !

Icons are MARWAITA form here.
The background image is from Japanese photographer EIJI OHASHI.


@ruwe Buddy Your Icons… Name Please :star_struck:

This is Focal with greek interface. Wallpaper picture has been taken by myself a couple of weeks ago in Ajaccio (Corse, FR).

Awesome looking desktop! That panel looks blurred because of the wallpaper - KDE style :slight_smile:

Nice! Fancy entering it into the 20.04 wallpaper contest?

I have updated the info. Thanks for asking.

it would be nice but I’ve taken this (and all the other during that trip) with my mobile (BV9500 Pro) since I’ve forgotten my Nikon at home and is 4672x3504 so I fear it wouldn’t fit for wallpaper contest :frowning:

That resolution is 4k … absolutely perfect for the contest :slight_smile:

wow! I don’t understand a bit about pictures resolution :relaxed: (ask me about Shib identity server, I’m a pro!!! :grin: ) so I didn’t imagine it was right for contest!
