[quote=“wrightpt, post:1, topic:25686, full:true”]It seems to be easier to look at for long periods of time.
When I first installed the Xfce edition, I could swear my ciliary muscle tightened so much I developed that type of glaucoma that makes you look like a sleep deprived drunk that has just been punched on the eye.
- First thing to go was that crazy thin airline font. Good ol’ Ubuntu Regular to a decent size of 10 (11 for bigger screens) saved me a trip to the hospital.
- Then it was the Qt5 settings. Changing the default gtk2 theme to Fusion and reducing the window background from pure white to a decent light grey that still resembles white meant no more insomnia for me.
- Moved to install Redshift then, and added the settings below to a new
.config/redshift.conf file. This last change meant that the word “cataract” is still only a synonym to waterfall.
- I did retain Vertex-Maia theme (it’s a sort of more or less almost close to being nearly a good theme). But changed the flat icons(*) to something more easy to identify at a quick glance without having to focus too much on the icon image. Elementary-xfce-dark. And this meant that other than the glaucoma I would not develop also mental disabilities.
Redshift config file (change your location’s latitude and longitude):
(*) Flat icons are a designer bug that went mainstream some 15 years ago or so. It should be fixed when humanity regains some sense and developers read the bug reports.
