Garuda needs a light mode for people with astigmatism

This is just a bit of accessibility feedback. I know Garuda is all in on dark mode and it does look good but unfortunately if you have astigmatism (like myself) it's not a matter of aesthetics, dark mode is torture. White text on a black background causes halation and near instant eye strain and pain. Here is an example of what dark mode looks like to me,

I know it's linux and you can just install another theme but there really should be a built in light mode out of the box.

Cheers.

And what about me?

Black text on a white background makes me (almost) as blind as the morning sun when I pull up the shutters in the kitchen.

Everyone is different and you can never please everyone.

If you prefer bright themes download the Xfce, that's bright.

Like you said, everyone can install their own theme. :slight_smile:

You are already covered because there is a dark mode. Having one does not preclude having the other.

Are you saying we should be more inclusive? @Haze

We are going in circles there.
There are also native desktop envirements from Garuda with a light theme Xfce, I3wm ...

How many ISO variants do you think we should create, as always free of charge, of each DE to satisfy every user request?

Thats, wrong.

dude wants a custom distro to save him three mouse clicks....some people are so entitled....personally i think garuda is the best end user linux ive seen. my only gripe is i think pamac should replace octopi and the servers list should be speed rated on first update and reflector should have longer time out and a few retries. im on a metered connection connected to my cell phone and it often fails updates on my cell network, i dont blame garuda att is flaky as hell. but im sure there are people in the world that have worse connection than my at and t 4g

OMG, the KDE Mobius just made my day.

You take the Dark theme and you wake up screaming in your bed seeing the world as if wearing 3D glasses. You take the light theme, and for you, everything is right as rain. :joy:
