Thanks for linking in my first post there, fungus! I was a bit hasty when I made that wallpaper though, and I didn't notice the bigger jaypeg artifacts in the corners.
Especially bottom left.

Waifu2x is a great tool but those blocks were just to big. It isn't meant to fix that sort of noise. So, I made a second edition of my first attempt. It is cleaned using gimp. So now I actually spent more like 14 minutes on it!

Two sizes, 1920x1080p and 3840x2160p packed here:

Again, thanks for making and using Devuan you all!

Thanks fsmithread! Good to know. One less thing having to feel anxiety about!
That is a good idea! However, I think fungus beat me to it : ) Speaking of..

Rightly so, fungus! My chain mail armor and sneakers will make a great combo, along with my trusty bug spray.

And thanks btw. Oh, look at that. Hope the wave author agrees with my post about it being fair use and not being a pepe the frog author about it  : ) I suspect the original photo and the wallpaper isn't by the same author either. So, all well I believe.

Have a good one, you all!

I come in peace! I just want to express how grateful I am that Devuan exists and that I hope it will have a bright future!

ThurahT: I am grateful that Devuan exists and I hope that Devuan will have a bright future.

I also made a wallpaper. It took me 4 minutes and I don't hate it. Even after looking at it for 2 minutes. So I thought I could share it. It has a 1980:ies, lazer, synth waveish vibe to it, being all neon and wavey.

The wave made its name across the web last summer, so you may have seen it already in many places. But I put Devuan on it. I consider the original pretty much fair use by now since I can't find the author and the web is drowning in it. Literally, it being of water and I found its copy on more than hundreds of different wallpaper sites. I ran it through waifu2x ( to get rid of some jaypeg artifacts and then I put the Devuan logo I found on the main site and did a simple gradient on it, on it.

I made two sizes: 1920x1080p and 3840x2160p. Packed here: or here:

Again, thank you all for making and using Devuan! It is a beacon of light in a grimmer by the day world.
