New Sonar backgrounds are available

We are pleased to announce that we have created two alternative backgrounds (wallpapers) for our users.

The default Sonar GNU/Linux wallpaper is all black with the word “Sonar” in all caps, grey font, with the letter “O” in green. There are several pulses on each side of the word Sonar. The pulses look like sound waves emanating from the word. For low vision users and for sighted users who like dark backgrounds it is a wonderful design.

For users who like a background that is not so dark, we’ve created a background that is a medium grey, fading to a hint of grey-green in the corners. In the lower left is the official Sonar GNU/Linux logo with a reflection below it, as though it is sitting on a glass table.

The second new wallpaper is identical to the grey one, but with a black background, fading to a hint of green in the corners and the reflected logo in the lower left corner.

You’ll find all three wallpapers in this post. If you want to try one of the alternatives, right-click and download the one you like best into your “Pictures” folder. Once the download is complete, right-click on the Sonar desktop and select Change Desktop Background from the list. Click on Background in the panel, then select the Pictures button, choose the new image and click Select.
