View Full Version : [ubuntu] [Newbie] Dull/Dark Colours in Ubuntu default theme put strain on my eyes.

July 31st, 2012, 05:34 PM
I have windows/ubuntu on dual boot. in windows I see that Firefox and other apps with white pages look Pure-White but on same laptop-screen-brightness the screens looks off-white in Ubuntu.

My assumptions: Ubuntu comes with default DARK-THEME. So perhaps it has some thing to do with that. Or may be some issue with driver.

Just to elaborate more. see the following image:
Its relatively soothing / light colour scheme. For me its still not the match to the soothing colours and feel off openness in Windows. I feel claustrophobic when I use Ubuntu. Due to two main reasons 1- dark/dull colours 2- Side and Top bar which makes me feel that I am restricted from all the sides.

Any help is appreciated. though if some one can right steps or commands, I will be able to follow it better.
