Just finished with the first versions of the distro-specific wallpapers and wanted to share this small graphic design project I made, inspired by this Reddit post.

Made with only open-source tools (Krita and Inkscape) and fonts (Cantarell Regular and Bold), and made the source project easily available for anyone that wants to edit and contribute.

Feel free to create an issue or a PR if I missed your favorite distro!

Smart idea! Thanks for making them: the world needed something like that! I am going set one as my wallpaper at work immediately

oh I totally made them with the intention of splattering them across my office whenever working from home stops being a thing

Thought this was going to be a collection of default wallpapers for various linux distributions. Kinda disappointing.

tbh that’s not a bad idea either, although with a little bit of searching it’s not hard to find the specific wallpaper you want

Nice idea, but the Debian one (the first I tested) really hurts the eye…

oh, do you have any suggestion for improvement? I used the official debian logo color for the background

Also, I’d rather use a non-microsoft (and a free) forge…

Some folks don’t like the fact that Microsoft owns GitHub so they want devs to move away from it.

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.
