Merry Christmas everyone!
LOL, as much as I really love a great majority of your other themes, I have to say I really hate this one

Hope you won't put me on your "ignore" list for that

Thanks D1ver.

I stumbled across that artwork on deviantart the other day and just fell in love with it.

I've just themed xdm to match it

Sure. There's really not that much to it. Here's the diff against Slackware's Xresources file.

The Xresources file as shipped by Slackware is a bit messy and could be made much tidier but I haven't gotten around to that yet. This patch does just enough to change the appearance.


As for the image itself, I'd rather not re-distribute that on a public forum without permission as the original author doesn't explicitly grant licence to re-distribute, but it was the work of 30 seconds to extract the face from the original image using gimp's circular selection tool and to save it as an xpm. I'm going to redo it anyway when I have time as I really didn't take much care or time when cutting it out yesterday and it's a bit rough around the edges.

The original image is available from zueuk.deviantart.com. (Worth viewing for the other nice fractal images he has on there. )


Any problems drop me a PM and we'll sort something out.
