Messed around with a pale blue feather theme today. Came up with what there is below. Has grub, plymouth, lightdm, desktop, conky, and xfce4term backgrounds. Shows what can be done fairly easily and quickly with LL. Theme is thin ice, and icons are high contrast. Pretty flat simple theme.   TC

Thanks. It's not perfect but was put together with what comes in the box with Linux Lite, LODraw, screenshot, and gthumb. The theme comes with LL and the icons, the image from the forum here. Took about two hours. Took a while to figure out 325x425 resolution for conky. It just shows how users can modify the look of their system easily in LL. Clearing memory feature is a really nice feature in light tweaks too. LODraw is a memory hog and froze dumping to swap once which is dog slow in virtual environment. Using boxes default here, not qemu manual setup, 20g vdd and 2g memory and performed all the operations while running the LL dekstop in virtual. All work done from the LL GUI except the Conky configuration and plymouth. Fairly easy task. No exotic graphics software needed.     TC

Settled on this now. Let conky handle desktop branding. Less clutter. Changed icons to tango. Thin ice theme.

I'm not a graphics wiz but it's not that hard to work with what comes with this LL. Sure would like to see somebody come up with an ASCII feather to use with screenfetch. Haven't had any luck trying to make one myself.

Ubuntu has several different ways to do this with command line tools, and jp2a works decently, but the problem is beginning with a .jpg graphically simple enough to render a decent looking ASCII image. Also screenfetch itself uses a very old rendering tool. Thought the new flat blue or gold feather would work okay but no such luck.

Looks more like a dead mouse. The solution may be to create a thick outline type feather .jpg before conversion to ASCII.
