Indigo Theme

This time Netrunner 19.08  ships with a brand new Look and Feel called Indigo which features the identically named color as main attraction. The mixture of darker blue and lighter blue together with classic white like gray creates a pleasent to the eye look that matches the Breeze Icon theme without distracting your eyes. The new red colored cursor (RED-Theme) has a slight retro vibe to it and takes care of quickly finding the cursor on the screen and never really loose track of it. As always we provide a wonderfully drafted wallpaper which fits the overall design of the desktop.


As always Netrunner provides a wide variety of tools and applications that can be used day to day. Like LibreOffice as Office suite for writing documents, calculating spreadsheets or creating stunning presentations.

If you like editing images Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program) offers a lot of tools for tweaking, editing and manipulating images. Drawing masterpieces with your mouse or pen is possible with the wonderful professional free and open source painting software called Krita. Both are extendable via plugins to allow even a wider variety of creative work to shine.
Designing logos, icons and scalable graphics can be done with Inkscape which is known to be the favorite vector based image editor of choice for many creators of great Icon packs.

Besides still images videos are more and more popular and so we provide one of the best free and open source video editors available on the market called Kdenlive. It provides you with familiar video editing concepts like timeline, audio and video tracks and combines this with a large variety of audio visual effects that help you creating wonderful video clips.

Creativity needs relaxation. This is why we ship with GMusicbrowser and Yarock to manage your music data and listen to songs. Or you can watch a video with SMplayer. With a bunch of games Netrunner allows you to break out of reality for a while and enjoy puzzles or a nice game of chess. If you want to get serious with games the largest Linux gaming platform Steam  is at your service.

Connecting to the world via Skype or Pidgin is possible as well as having fun developing small applications with Kate or enjoy typing commands into a sliding down terminal like Yakuake.
