Show us your Budgie Desktop


Nothing really original:

  • theme: Arc-Darker
  • icones: papirus


Yes to all this! Another Arc-Dark/er Papirus user :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Hello all!

this is my Desktop: I’ve kept black pocillo theme because is the best for emphasizing the wallpaper. The wallpaper itself reproduces a well known roman marble copy of an hellenistic bronze statue, Afrodite Callipigia (καλός = beautiful, πυγή = “bottom”, so Venus with a beautiful “bottom”) :grinning: (National Archaeological Museum, Naples)




Have you got a link to the “Bianceticker” ? I’ve never heard of that applet. TIA

This is just my bare-boned setup of Ubuntu Budgie. Nothing much different here except that I switched Pocillo to Pocillo-Light-Slim and slapped on a different wallpaper. I do need to get my terminal color scheme in order at some point. lol


Just changed the wallpaper and moved Plank below.


These are all awesome. Lots of inspiration to get started on my own setup. Thanks for the ideas.


I’m a noob to this whole Linux thing, so I thought the first thing I would try to learn is how to fix up the UI to my liking. Do y’all like it or nah? Lol


Not the best but I am trying.

Jupiter’s south pole, as seen by NASA’s Juno spacecraft from an altitude of 32,000 miles (52,000 kilometers). The oval features are cyclones, up to 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) in diameter. Multiple images taken with the JunoCam instrument on three separate orbits were combined to show all areas. https://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/thumbnails/image/17-051.jpg

The Copernicus Sentinel-3B satellite captured its first image on 7 May 2018 at 10:33 GMT (12:33 CEST), less than two weeks after it was launched. The image shows the sunset over the Weddell Sea off the coast of Antarctica. http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2018/05/Antarctic_sunset_from_Sentinel-3B
