1.1. Emblems

1.2. Pixmaps

/usr/share/pixmaps/devuan-security.png

1.3. Splash, wallpapers and grub images

Wallpapers are provided in two SVG variants, one standard (‘narrow’) aspect (4/3) and one widescreen (‘wide’) (16/9). Both come in ‘small’ and ‘large’ formats to accommodate various display sizes. You can switch from one another using the alternatives system. Using the same system you can select one of the other theme variant. Beware that changing alternative means that the next package upgrade won’t automatically revert to the default choice.

For wallpaper you can run:

sudo update-alternatives --config desktop-background

For splash screens you can run:

sudo update-alternatives --config desktop-splash

For grub, you can select standard or widescreen version too. ‘wide-large’ can be better in particular for UEFI firmwares:

sudo update-alternatives --config desktop-grub

3. Changing desktop-base images

Note: If you’d like to propose different desktop backgrounds, you’re welcome to share it on talk.do or Friends of Devuan.

We need professional looking Devuan artwork for the Desktop. If you want to help changing some desktop-base images, please consider the following notes:

  • Each release has a signature color.
    • For JESSIE that is purpy and it is #7b7691.
    • For ASCII that is darkpurpy
    • In reserve is leafy and it is #b5d147.
    • Next releases are not settled yet. There’s a palette in devuan-art.git.
  • The Devuan font is Open Sans (fortunately a free font)

If you have suggestions for different artwork, please join the #devuan-art channel on Freenode and fork devuan-art.git to create a merge request. See our Devuan Style Guide.

4. Window Managers

desktop-base is used by KDE/LXDE/Mate/XFCE desktop environments.

If you’re responsible for a WM in Devuan and want to use desktop-base artwork or add your own image (wallpaper, splash, whatever) use the layout described above and send your patch through devuan-art issue tracker.

5. Boot splash

desktop-base ships several Plymouth themes. To activate the default theme, install the plymouth and plymouth-themes packages and run:

plymouth-set-default-theme lines

Then remember to add “splash” to your kernel command line.

To do that permamently, edit /etc/default/grub and add splash to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable. For example:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

You may also keep the grub background and hide the kernel boot messages with:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash fbcon=vc:2"
