Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Debian Linux, which I'm using at the moment, comes with a pretty standard blue-themed Gnome desktop common to several distros- Debian, Mandriva and Fedora- distinguished only by a branded wallpaper.
It's a simple and elegant theme, but over the last few days I've been customising my desktop, changing the theme and icons. The new theme is a dark one which I think suits my laptop with its grey-bordered screen.
But first of all I changed the icon theme. For some reason I never liked the default 'refresh' icon, particularly as it appears in Firefox/Iceweasel. To my eye, the appearance of Firefox using the Elementary or Gnome-Colors icon theme is much more pleasing.
