Show us your Budgie Desktop

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?

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!

Not original but it is Mine

Hello ! I’m new to Ubuntu Budgie (just installed it yesterday). I like very much this distro. This is my beginner desktop :

(Icons are Pocillo-Tela from the Ubuntu Budgie Dev PPA ; GTK theme is Pocillo-slim ; I changed the fonts for the time and date to Noto Sans Regular ; Wallpaper is from the laptop brand ‘Tuxedo Computers’ who made me know Budgie via their ‘Tuxedo OS’ distribution —> In fact, Ubuntu Budgie with some modifications and tweaks to optimize their laptops…)


Mine is very simplistic. I originally tried having the Budgie colors as a gradient in the top panel like in the second screenshot. I liked the way it looked, but it clashed too badly so I changed it to a transparency gradient.
