Hi there, bit of a late comment but how did you get GIMP to look as close to adwaita as that? When I tell gimp to follow my system theme (adwaita dark), it will look similar but have a really blue ish grey colouring over it. Don’t if you can’t help, probably something I’ve messed up lol

oh, nothing in particular, it’s just that I was using the git version of GIMP, the one that’ll be GIMP 3 soon enough, it’s pretty much it with stock settings

Thanks!

My biggest gripe with Adwaita is the Shell theme. I use Arc for the Shell and Adwaita for everything else (since QGnomeplatform is pretty much hardcoded to Adwaita, sadly). The hard “blackness” of stock Adwaita is just to crass for me, if it would be slightly toned down, I’d be fine I think.

For me it’s the opposite, I really enjoy the hard definition between the top bar and the rest of the system, specially with the curved edges (with these being probably one of the main reasons I don’t use other shell themes). It doesn’t look that good on screenshots with two monitors or more, but in real life it looks stunning.

Hm, interesting! I’m really a fan of toned-down themes (and I also use light themes to help my eyes), too much of a high contrast gets me on edge :)

Oh, that’s interesting, I use darker themes for the same reason, specially at night light theme feel like burning my eyes, which is the reason I had to change my wallpaper, even though I love it so much.

I have a strict policy of a well-lighted desk, and then light themes work really well. If you work in a darker environment, dark themes work better, but then you should – imho – just add another light source. Beautiful wallpaper!
