Reader Royale with Cheese loves flat desktops, and so do we. This time around his desktop pays homage to the legendary fuzz pedal, the Big Muff. It’s a simple, flat look that says a lot if you know what to look for. Here’s how it’s all set up.
Musicians and music lovers probably didn’t even need me to tell you what kind of pedal that was for you to identify it, which is part of what makes this desktop so awesome. The other thing is that it’s a Linux desktop, and we haven’t seen too many of those in a while. Either way, here’s what you’ll need to make your own Linux system look like this:
That’s all there is to this one! If you’re already running Linux with Cinnamon on top (like Linux Mint, for example) then the rest should be pretty easy for you. If you have questions about how it’s all set up, and how you can set up a desktop like it, head over to his Kinja blog (linked below) to read more about how it’s done and to ask your questions.
