I would say that having a background similar to Debian default would make a little bit less obvious to someone in the room Tails is running, but then comes the Windows 8 camo.

But still the present blue background is too shiny too me and kind of hurt my eyes, which is no security issue but kind of UX.

I don't want to see you hurt. May you please try making the background color a bit darker until the point when it is harmless for you? (Oh well, as harmless as using computers can be.)

#6 Updated by mercedes508 over 5 years ago

Well, I'll try to figure it out precisely, but then I find it easier to pick same as Debian default. Wondering if it would be kind of confusing for user used to Debian.

#7 Updated by BitingBird over 5 years ago

Debian default background has the Debian swirl, and we're not Debian, so I don't think that's a good idea. We could use the main color as background instead of the blue, though.

Discussed in the November meeting: https://tails.boum.org/contribute/meetings/201411/

The decision is: "We agreed on trying to reduce the brightness and
saturation of the current background to be less hurting to the eyes.
While keeping the same blue color."
