Thanks for your request! I could, but out of principle I won’t, I’m sorry.

I don’t like to use 3rd party materials (even if it’s just adding something small), I like my wallpapers to be 100% my creation (with the obvious exception of the various logos).

First and foremost because I don’t want to take credit for the work of someone else (or worse, butcher their work), second, the finished product usually looks much more organic and whole if instead of modifying something you make it all from scratch yourself.

What I can do is to recreate (make something similar to) the skull and bones, with manjaro written below it, with a different (probably more plain than this) background, if that’s ok with you.

I made these (wasn’t going for an exact copy, rather something like “inspired by”).

Only thing to improve: instead of the pink or blue the Manjaro Green! :wink:

But I like your setup @pux, looks really nice!

Actually the font I used for that wallpaper is called ‘conthrax’ and can be found here: https://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=conthrax&text=deepin&psize=l

oberon thought it was maven pro but it wasen’t so I ended up using conthrax which was closer to the original. The original font for deepin is still unknown as far as I know.

Thanks for the correction, I forgot about that (I should have scrolled a little further :slightly_smiling_face:).

very nice, thanks to @muser and @ant
Thought about to start with Wallpaper building in Inkscape and Blender, but no need. You are much better in this work.

Sorry about my english :wink:

I like the font much. :smiley:

@SGS It doesn’t matter how good you think we are.
I started making wallpapers a year ago, and back then I knew very little about Gimp and nothing about Inkscape. But with practice I got better.

If you want to make wallpapers and that makes you happy, then go ahead and do it.

Did you make this? Very nice!
I also learned a lot from Nick. He has very good tutorials.
The other one I can recommend is tutor4u (Inkscape/Gimp/Blender).

The original idea was that if you put a cat into a jar it sounds similar to Manjaro (cat+jar+manjaro=catjaro). Dogjaro is a little strech, but I wanted to make it to complement the cat. :grin:

Why haven’t I thought about it. :smile::smile:

You don’t even need the wallpaper reference to pass it as a Linux joke :grin:
