Now that 13.1 is out of the oven, happy release everyone!
I wanted to propose some changes for 13.2. Since the dark theme created by our
contributors has gained some good popularity among the community and reviewers, I think it
is not too far fetched to propose to “keep” this dark theme for upcoming versions of
openSUSE. I would say at least through the 13 series and only make a major change to it
from version 14 on. This would give us a really long tome to mature the theme even
further, theme other elements of the distribution that need it and keep consistency with
Here is a tentative list of what changes we could help make for version 13.2
- Revamp vine wallpaper (Make a new version but keeping the same vine idea from 12.3 and
Until the green is a variation of "#FFBFF0" and also we get ride of
geeko on a leave of giant beans, I'm okay ;-)
One big changes would be to finally get one big wallpaper (think about the 3200x1800
pixels screen coming)
and be able to pick a part (crop) of it for each resolution would be perfect compared to
the waste we have actually.
- Change default font (KDE and Gnome) to Open Sans (a
great and very complete font family very readable)
Should be a default for all the
desktop we have. Questions how behave openSUSE for non regular charset like chinese, and
others (nordic etc)
If this is the font
you can see there's a lot of missing
- Add “New” vine wallpaper to alternative desktops
Take it at todo, find alternative desktops maintainer, and contact them to join the
- Finish complementary wallpaper collection package
You mean start a new collection right ?
- Start the creation (integration if time permits) of
a “light” version of the KDE plasma theme
What is this one? I don't understand,
- Create a matching dark version of a Gnome Shell
theme somewhat matching KDE’s dark plasma theme (will have to investigate this one and
What do you mean by that ?
It is always a good question to ask why the changes are being proposed. I would say,
these changes push a little forward into making openSUSE extra singular and also look
similar, by default, across different desktop flavors.
I invite our group to make suggestions and set
ourselves goals for 13.2.
Having booting a 11.4 and a 12.2 recently those design miss me.
and 12.3/13.1 look a bit sad compared.
