😊 What does your Fedora background look like?

I use Xfce on both my desktop and my laptop. On both of them, I have a number of different wallpapers that rotate randomly.

I’ve been using this wallpaper for a while now, I quite love it!

Fedora has been running smoothly for me, even on the beta builds :star2:
(And yes, I like having a side dock :slight_smile:)


Adapta Icons
Extra flexible spacer does the middle-magic
nice Backgrounds from wallpaperaccess

custom Appstarters:


  • Dictionary
  • Sticky note
  • Minimal Desktop switcher (emojis as icons, looks okay but still shitty)
  • Search
  • Focus
  • Serverstatus

And I customized the clock because trivial names make no sense if you learned latin once.

Also recommended (for Kinoite):


Adding to the list of mountain landscapes :mountain:

I have used the same wallpaper for 11 years—a photograph by Denise Nouvion[1], from a curated set of wallpapers by thefoxisblack.com[2].

I have some custom Xfce panel scripts, like the clock (clicking it copies the ISO datetime to clipboard).

And my favourite desktop toy Neko, an animated pixel-art cat that follows your cursor[3]. I run oneko -tofocus on startup, so it sits on top of the focused window (in the screenshot, it is sleeping in the panel). Incidentally, the Xfce logo is a mouse; I sometimes move my cursor to the top-left to let the cat catch the mouse.

  3. Possibly the oldest and most ported “virtual pet” or desktop toy that is still widely available? The Fedora package oneko is based on oneko-sakura, a fork from ~1999. ↩︎


haha thats a Windows experience. Honest question, what do people need 3 different (and mostly proprietary) browsers for?

… maybe web developers?

Aaaah okay that makes sense.

Not a background but ny newly pimped out laptop :wink:



Nice! Mine is coming too, accompanying the Ubuntu sticker I pulled off a public PC that had Ubuntu removed and ran Windows… What a shame

I used Pixelmator Pro on the Macintosh to create the background. I customized the Silverblue icons with Yaru and changed the system font. I love the fact the Linux is so much more customizable than macOS.


You definitely need more stickers :slight_smile:


Yeah, you have any cool ones?
Hard to find any in Sweden :slight_smile:

Really cool! Which DE is that?

I am actually quite boring, I use the bog standard default wallpaper. No need to post an image here, just reinstall Fedora, that’s what I use.

The icons look lovely alongside the wallpaper :slight_smile:

I wonder what the icon pack is called so I can try it out on my desktop

It’s called Bumblebee, but I haven’t released it yet. It’sw not “complete” yet.

Ahh, well I actually did eventually find your post about the WIP for your icon pack, it seems good and promising so far :bluethumb:
