I never bother with themes and such so I typically use whatever Fedora serves up. I am having trouble seeing the current FW36 iteration of GTK themes so thought I’d look for an altenative. I wandered into Settings/Appearance and was shocked to see the Ukraine colors in the default backgrounds. My first notice of IBM starting to flex their control.

You, my friend, have lost your fucking mind.

Thank you! … before your comment, I was wondering if I was loosing mine.

I may have lost a few marbles but I’m not colorblind. Tell me that is not a blue/yellow background added to Settings/Appearance. I’ve been using Fedora for ages and I find this irksome.


Buddy, the point is that the two backgrounds contrast. Blue and yellow contrast. It’s not that deep. .

So your vote is for obtuse.


Fedora management has either soldout to corporate pressure or they are being exceedingly obtuse given the current political climate.

Because they added yellow-blue theme at a time when plenty of people seem to like yellow-blue?..

This combination just really looks nice, see: 🇺🇦 ?

And this is the very reason I find it irksome.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
