It’s a work in progress, only started a hour or 2 ago on it and this is my first day actually using Budgie, the screenshot shows my up-time or in this case, total use time. Am making a Budgie theme for my TV computer, so it has some other styling then a typical desktop for this very reason. Right now it runs on my default (ancient) iMac for development purposes.
Second screenshot shows a white theme Tilix which works slightly better for a tv setup, at least on my screen. To recreate simply put light theme on Tilix, then as profile solarized light, change background to white with ~90% alpha.
Cursor: Breeze (apt install breeze-cursor-theme)
Font: Roboto (apt install fonts-roboto)
Icons: Papirus (placeholder, haven’t really looked at icons much for this build yet)
GTK base: Lavender-Light-Compact (https://github.com/vinceliuice/Lavender-theme)
Wallpaper: Default, do a fresh install to get this amazing wallpaper, what could go wrong
The GTK is just a baseline I used for the fact that it’s mostly white and thus easy to theme. The symbols and buttons are pretty much perfect for what I like and that saves me making a load of them in Inkscape, although I might scale them up a bit depending on how hard it is to see them from ~3meter.
Am fine with sharing code on it if requested, it’s nothing special so rather answer a question if you have one, so you can do it yourself instead of copy-pasta. Part of CSS (panels) visible in screenshot to help you along the way if it’s panels your after.
