This is a very nice picture for the wallpaper. It got me interested in knowing what it was. I found this, I hope I'm right.

For a moment, I got confused by the blue outline of the bridge in the wallpaper. But I guess it was afternoon when the picture was taken.

The photo was taken 100 meters from my house in the city of Nafpaktos. At the weekend the bridge is illuminated with colored lights, usually blue.

As a normal Slackel (and Salix) user, I already have Slackel 7.7 just by doing system updates. I especially appreciated GCC 13.2 and Emacs 29.1. Although a rolling distribution, Slackel is stable and easy to maintain. Great job, djemos!

Fun fact: I used to live very close to the other side of the bridge, during my University years... except the bridge didn't exist back then :lol: (nowadays the bridge is clearly visible at a distance from where I live most of the time). Nafpaktos, where djemos took this picture, is a very beautiful town.
The picture is my new Slackel wallpaper now. :D
A pleasant detail in this forum: several people pick a picture of their pet as their avatar. Who am I to do otherwise? ;-)

Thank you Papasot. What is really interesting for Slackel and Salix is the real installation to a usb stick. It is very useful.
