Debian Stretch amd64
Up until recently, I had a login screen that I liked, a desktop theme
that worked reasonably well (with some contrast problems) and desktop
background that I liked. Then I killed my system and had to reinstall
the OS and load in backup copies. The system has been a bit of a mess
since. I only have 2 choices or login screen, neither of which I like. I
did manage to find and download a copy of my old desktop background but
none of my workspace themes work well. The tend to be dark gray
backgrounds -which I like- but do strange things with the print. I tried
to send an email to my doctor the other day and my HMO web site was
printing all of my typing in white on white. My bank web site prints
gray on gray. I have tried various preference setting on Firefox to no
avail. My address book prints dark blue on dark gray. Impossible to
read. Many of the system settings don't seem to change much other than
making scroll bars impossible to see.
I have tried to download various themes but have found nothing that
works. Switching different color schemes makes big changes in the system
setting page but doesn't change other applications.
In brief, I lost most of my splash screens and can't find my favorites
anymore and the various color schemes don't effect my applications
