I'm still rockin' the light theme on my laptop, but I've been experimenting with dark themes on my desktop. It all started with utilizing evertiro's dot file configs for Alacritty and Vim, and instead of changing them completely, I just tweaked them a bit. The usual dark theme desktops seen at places like r/unixporn at Reddit make my eyes hurt, so my tweaks are working out ok so far. From right to left on a dual monitor set up; Far right is Alacritty with Vim utilizing evertiro's configs - slightly tweaked. Right middle is Atom utilizing Gruvbox theme displaying a YAML. Left middle is Sayonara player - An extremely light weight, but super stable player in dark mode and looks great. Far left is GNOME Terminal that I have configured to emulate a quasi Gruvbox appearance that I'm happy with - note my usual bit of transparency. I have purposely made Alacritty, Atom and GNOME Terminal look a bit different so I can easily tell where I'm working.

the way i set up any desktop hasn't varied much over the years. WindowMaker, OSX, Unity, and GNOME 3.x all get configured pretty much the same way.
the exception was gnome 2.x - i liked the two panels on top+bottom of screen so i used that for a while.

@derpOmattic suggested that I post a screenshot showing the dracula theme. It's a consistent theme that's available for a lot of desktop apps. Here you see remacs with some rust code, neovim with some javascript, and mattermost, all showing the dracula theme. You can see a little bit of firefox in the back too with the same theme. Oryx Pro, laptop screen.

Yep, I thought that would be a good one to display due to it being available for a lot of programs.

I saw this Tron inspired wallpaper and had to have it. :love: I've added a little extra transparency to my Terminals to suit.

I wasn't completely satisfied with the above desktop, so kept tweaking colors and configs until I got to the place where most everything blended or complimented. The biggest problem was Alacritty because transparency isn't working and is why I omitted it from the above screenshot. The other thing that really stuck out was the titlebars for all programs. In the stock Pop theme it is "Saddle", a brown color which is otherwise ok, but with the purple backgrounds really looked out of place. I managed to change the titlebar colors in gtk.css and love them now. Although I was working with the above wallpaper, I found that the Pop-retro2 wallpaper went well also. I'm normally using a light theme in good lighting and find the predominantly grey and black desktops with stark white text hurt my eyes. Worse still are dark themes that the text can't be seen easily being dark also. The below desktop is about as dark as I can go and be able to use for long periods. It is just Pop slim light theme with color tweaks.
