I like the red :)

Go for it, your desktop should not look dull or boring.

Stay with the "Darkside"!!!.  To be serious, I find darker themes much easier on the eyes,

im liking it i agree it is easier on the eyes, i may try a blue/black variation and see if ilike that too. I the black on color combo better than the white or grey to be honest.

finallly finished setting it up using a theme called ambience black out red
with  rave x red icon sets (still wish they had faneza red icons but these will do for now).
digging the totally black look.

Here's what I've been making.  I find this easier on my seriously damaged eyes.  I like to use relatively brightly coloured icons too.  I think it works pretty well.

looks pretty nice. i also use redshift too so at night my screen is very mellow on the eyes and now with this dark theme
its super mellow. I may try a blue/black theme next for now im digging the red/black look i think i will stick to the dark theme
for now.

i cant stop haha. i went with this black/aqua theme im really digging this. Im more of a fan in general of blue over red
so i think this one is the winner.

They all look good, and there's a sense of minimalism with your final work.  You're keeping it functional, clean, and simple.  ;)

thanks man i actually decided to download a very very simple black wallpaper and it looks SUPER clean!
im sticking with this look i think. I also like the black 3d plane dock on a black background it adds a nice glassy texture
with out being to in yourself. i think i dig this look more the the osx-grey/aqua colors.

For me, this one is easiest on my eyes.   Good choice!  ;)

I also like the tree theme that AndyInMokum has going on.  His theme reminds me of Bodhi Linux, and Bodhi Linux was known for it beautiful art themes.

You guys both get an A+  :)

thanks i went back to the blue wallpaper i just can't let it go for now hahaha
i did change the dock to a normal flat panel instead of the 3d plane and i actually like it better
with this look. I'm digging it.

its very subtle but the new version of cairo dock allows you to change the color of the dock finally or use system theme
so my dock actually final matches my top panel and system theme colors! oh and as you can see i fixed my conky theme 'jelly conky; (compare to page one images)
for some reason in the config files when i downloaded it the numbers are larger on one side and off set no idea why the creator would do that
so i went in and made everything look smoother.

Looks good, iamesperambient -- tasteful and minimalistic!  :) 

I did something similar on my computer by applying the Gray Minimal theme in Firefox in order to match my dark panel below.

Post by: iamesperambient on October 20, 2014, 01:44:58 pm
nice ya all my browsers are using a dark theme now to match. now after trying this i much prefer a dark theme over the light grey osx or windows look.
ironically i hear a black theme option  is now part of the new osx version.

i went with an ultra flat icon theme and i really like it it fits the whole gtk theme.
i just wish i could fix the panel icon for session log out to not have a white background.

Can people posting screenshots of artwork/themes/icon sets please at least name them, or even better post link(s) to where they can be downloaded .. so if anyone else likes the look they can find them....

Otherwise you're just saying "look at my desktop" .. which is fine, but doesn't really belong in the "RESOURCES" section of the forum ;)
(If you're just showing off your desktop, "General Discussion" is probably a better location)

TIA.

Nice, I like the darker minimalist theme with the red.
The less screen distractions the better, other than user icons to give focus.  ;D

Post by: iamesperambient on October 28, 2014, 01:26:46 am
yeah i found red is to much of an agressive color for me, and blue happens to be my favorite color next to grey than green.
i was never fond of red but wanted to try it...not for me but as for the dark themes i prefer them now.

if anmyone wants to know my set up at my final result (last screen shot)
im using ultra flat icons which can be got from gnome-look.org
and im using ambience black out - aqua theme which can be  gotten from the respositories on noobslab.
wallpaper secrets from deviant art, and default cario dock theme using the latest version and selected system
theme so it matches my top panel.
