[fun] 😊 What does your Fedora background look like?

Since this is a fun category and today is Friday, I’d challenge you to share your Fedora background picture. Let’s have some inspiration and fun.

I just use the Bing Wallpaper option within KDE Plasma. Today it happened to be penguins… how fitting! :smiley:

I stick to Breeze Dark theme that come with KDE Plasma. It may be too dark for some, but there is no democracy on taste or look, right?

I managed to suppress my urge to tinker the desktop. Two virtual desktops are named ‘writing’, and ‘image editing’. As I use Kickoff launcher, I don’t have anything on the desktop.

I’m just using the default background right now, but in the past I’ve used this:

It’s based on a quote in a design blog. Someone who was unfamiliar with Red Hat as a company was discussing the new logo.

This is 2014 old low mid range Asus laptop. Running Fedora Kinoite. I have tried many distros. Only got better performance with Debian 11 plasma and Fedora Kinoite 37. So, sticking with it as long as possible.

One of the downsides of Gnome: desktop screenshots are nothing to write home about!

I like to change out my wallpaper for each month. This month I’m rocking a frame from what is probably a Studio Ghibli movie.

Nice idea @bogomil! :smiley: I got a good chuckle from @bcotton’s “sometimes” wallpaper. :joy:

I rotate wallpapers once or twice a year. Since my work requires me to spend so much time on my Fedora laptop, I like to incorporate reminders or affirmations that mean something important to me. My latest affirmation is a visualization of the dharma wheel and the Eightfold Path.

Oh, and I am using i3. :slightly_smiling_face:

Fedora 37 Mate. My computer is fairly powerful (i7 8th gen U + Nvidia MX150) but I replaced it with a newer one, so I use it for web browsing and youtube/movie/anime watching while in my bed (I have it in a small table by my bed). I limit it to 650MHz (which is absolutely more than enough to make MATE fly on this little one) and enjoy hours of battery life. It lasts more than a tablet, much more usable, better screen, better speakers, better everything!

The only thing I dislike from Fedora MATE is that it lacks the Ayatana indicators in the repos, so Ubuntu MATE looks better out of the box IMO.

Still, I prefer Fedora.

Have you played with libindicator-gtk3-tools

But does that provide the ayatana indicators?

One of the downsides of Gnome: desktop screenshots are nothing to write home about!

When I was using Gnome 2 I had a doc with a list of tweaks to remove everything from my desktop so it looks clean. So this feature in Gnome 3 was the least controversial for me.

I do like official Fedora wallpapers a lot, but I pick some older versions when I get bored with a current one.

Occasionally I use this one. Still one of my favorites.

That one, the Fedora 34 and the Fedora 33 ones are simply just a joy to use.

But, I’ll say one thing. I was using Ubuntu back when I was like 12 in 2006, and I remember trying a virtual Machine with Fedora. It was a stupid thing (I was a kid), but I got the impression, once I saw that wallpaper, that Fedora was simply the best thing out there. I found that one absolutely astonishing and fascinating.

Thank you very much for sharing it. It evoked really great memories :wink:

I love it! :grin: I’m pretty sure this was a Fedora 7 wallpaper.
