Arch Wallpapers

I'm kinda new here but I thought I'd start a thread for people to share wallpapers they've made for Arch..I usually make my own instead of use someone else's.
Anyway, let's see what we can find! Here are a few I just made. I'll be adding more soon

Re: Arch Wallpapers

Great initiative but if you going to do something you should think about doing it right:
- 1023x575px resolution is... let say uncommon for a desktop (or mobile in matter of fact)
- if you doing just one resolution it should be possible the highest you can do (at least 1920x1200 for my taste)
- you do know that both of your wallpapers got non-official Arch logo?

PS I'm not trying to be mean.

Re: Arch Wallpapers

I think one is 1366x768 (my laptop) and the other is 1920x1080 (my desktop) but you are right, I'll start making them at a much higher resolution.
As for the logo...I used what I could find and then tweaked it. Where can I get the official one?

On the official website look at the right column, there is a lot of nice things, for example under More Resources you've got Logos & Artwork

Hmm downloaded from photobucket and they're small and in awkward small resolution. Maybe I miss something or you should check photobucket settings.

How's it?


That's great! I love minimalist wallpapers!
I think they should add a wallpaper page to the site where we can put up our work.

Re: Arch Wallpapers

A variant of the zenburn awesome wm wallpaper. In both zenburn colors and blue.

If anyone wants it I can take out the awesome part so it's just arch, but I don't think it would take you more than 30 seconds in gimp anyway.
