Sequel to New color scheme for Suse 11.3

With apologies to Tokugawa-Ieyasu I’m putting in a new poll which will have the green & an Other color. If you pick other please specify what color & if you want why?

Since I started this My Pick is Green! However I think the shade of green that Geeko has on almost all of the Opensuse materials would be most appropriate. It does show up well on every display I’ve see to date.

I like the green but i don’t care if the color is going to be changed as long as it is not ugly like Ubuntu.

I voted purple. It is my favorite color and was so long before Apple or Ubuntu tried to claim it. Leonardo Da Vinci believed meditating in purple light increased the power of thought by a factor of 10, so it is said. Either way, I like it.

But as I said in the other thread, my real vote is for multiple color options available to choose from upon install.

You can’t debate about matters of taste, so here is my two cents.
Black with subtle yet sparkling rotfl! accents in blue, red, orange and o yes… green.
This is how my colour scheme is for over a year now.

Purple. It’s sexy.

Voting puirple here as well, like in my previous poll.

Guess that must be why I like purple that much :wink:
I’m already using a purple colour scheme, and it would fit in nicely there.

Definitely!

I don’t think that’s why it was popular at funerals (olden days, even before my time). At least one of the world’s religions favours it. :expressionless:

I voted Green, though Purple is alright (unfortunately it makes me think of OS X).

Somebody in the other thread mentioned Yellow. That could be interesting I think!

blue;) blue

Overused, I like green.
Purple is Ubuntu right now

Yellow,… no, Blue
Waaaaa!..

(this terrible quote from a swiss-cheese like memory comes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

A titanium gradient, I won’t accept any other

I’m fine with purple or green. I guess yellow would look sickly … :\

I would use the default theme (green). But there are some applications don’t play well with it. White text on white background…:frowning:

Hello All,

I’ve NEVER liked the greens used in /suse/i … and this is actually a bit of a work in progress for me.

The issue, in my opinion, is the USE of green, not the green itself. I’ll post a theme on gnome-look (later today I hope) to illustrate an alternative … but my idea to base elements off of this pallet:

Hello,

how does one view your “simple folder”?

Just copy the text into a file, let nautilus do the rest! If you like file extensions, it’s svg, but not really necessary in *nix land!

Have fun!

I think SUSE can ONLY be GREEN. The best fitted colors are gathered in this pic: http://i.piccy.info/i5/58/71/487158/chloroblinds_240.jpg](http://piccy.info/view3/487158/879fa092e2674dd71b471505bcc2ba0f/)

PS. As for blue… It’s SO heavily overused! It’s seems, like “Blue Oyster Bar” customers is taking over in design decisions lol!
