small suggestion in themes

Postby harishkumar » 20 Jul 2017 14:02

hi,
solyd x comes with breeze-X and breeze-dark-X theme.
solyd k comes with a blue color based kde color theme.

can both be available interchangeably?
Like a theme in solyd-x with blue colors of solyd k colors.
similarly in solyd-k , kde colors which is orange.

Is there any strict thing that X should be Orange and K should be Blue?

thanks,
harish pathangay

I think that's just schoeljes color fixation :) Branding is good and important but maybe he took the orange-brown too far this time. I immediatedly got rid of the orange background because it's not really easy on the eyes and select a light blue color ... I don't mind the remaining orange elements.

I've never thought about interchanging the themes, I'm not really picky with the optics anyway. Just sometimes I would like to advertise SolydX a bit more on my laptop, now it's just the little "X" on the menu..

Indeed, my color fixation is all about branding. From the start is was orange for SolydX and blue for SolydK. Recognizability is important if you want to stand out and build a brand and that often means: who has got the balls to make something that is loved by some and hated by others (the rest don't bother and change everything at first boot). Whatever the case, everybody knows what it is and hopefully what it stands for.

I understand the branding concept ... its just a lot of orange this time around. Anyway, it just got me thinking ... I can change the title and icon on the whisker menu (right click and properties) - now it reads "X Solyd" - meh, I need the other way round. I'd need an rectangular SolydX artwork, about 1:3, with SolydX in writing. That might work. Do we have the present artwork somewhere for download, Arjen?

And sorry for derailing your thread, harishkumar.

You can find all original artwork here:
/usr/share/solydxk/artwork/

It's included in the adjustments packages.

hi,
I mean the themes. not wall papers.

By the way I down loaded SolydX because of the lovely Orange Breeze Theme Variation and Evolvere Icon set.
I am not Linux Pro. Definitely not under mining any body efforts.
Cheers to Developers of SolydX.

Thanks for pointer about Clam AV. I am just going to keep it. AV/FW do not want to disturb that.

thanks,
harish pathangay

No problem, you are welcome. If you encounter a problem, just ask. I'm sorry I can't help you with the theme. You might be able to extract it from a SolydK installation.

Honestly I liked the orange color, but I guess it depends from person to person:)
