Very handsome! I particularly like the flowing look, reminding me of an underwater plant such as kelp.

By the way, did you notice that your mx_wp_logo_line wallpaper is the very cool background being used for one of the plymouth splash themes provided by MX Boot Options?
Hi, asqwerth
Where can i see that,
It will be a surprise and gift for me that some one used the wallpaper.

Beautiful wallpapers Auro and thank you for your contributions to the community. Ribbon1 in particular exudes fluidity and elegance because the ribbon flows as one. I personally prefer dark grays (softer on the eyes) with no words.....the ribbon says it all. Kudos!

And by the way, how the ribbon suggests the letters MX is very clever.

If you use MX Boot Options to enable splash, then you will find the background called "elegant" which is your wallpaper. BTW: as with all such borrowings, there is a file in the folder

/usr/share/plymouth/themes/elegant/

called "Source" which names you and gives the image's original location.
#The background is the original work of MX user Auro Kumar Sahoo:

OK, as Jerry said, you need to open MX Tools, click on Boot Options, and choose to enable splash. The tool will install plymouth and some themes for you, after which you can choose "elegant" theme from the dropdown menu and click "apply". The grub settings will be updated.

The next time you boot into MX17, you will see the following startup graphic with progress bar, instead of the lines of text scrolling up the screen:
