    You know what stinks?

    Sneaking into a lab, leaving the lights off so no one will find you, booting up your client to image and MY LAND WHO SET THE BACKGROUND TO RETINA SEAR?

    I have made a darker background that I wanted to share that may help with the sizzling retina, it’s a lot harder to find me when there isn’t a bright white screen in front of me 😉

    Enjoy! (It’s nothing spectacular, but its something!)

    You have one of two options, either
    A.) Change the background by using the web gui. You still need to place the file in the {fogwebdir}/service/ipxe folder but you can name it whatever you like, just make the adjustment on the fog settings page under Fog Boot Settings for the FOG_IPXE_BG_FILE option.

    B.) Upload this image to {fogwebdir}/service/ipxe and save it as bg.png (I used filezilla to place the image)
    This will overwrite the old background file, I highly recommend backing up the previous bg.png JUST IN CASE!

    These commands will need to be issued after every SVN or GIT pull. Keep the new background above in a safe place (/home/user/Pictures).
    sudo mv /var/www/fog/service/ipxe/bg.png /var/www/fog/service/ipxe/bg.png.old

    sudo mv /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe/bg.png /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe/bg.png.old

    I will put up other commands later when I figure out where the bg is stored in other versions of Linux.

    Done as requested. After all, people do like choices.

    @Jaymes-Driver perhaps we should include this along with the standard background. then changing to this background from the original could be as simple as changing the setting from “bg.png” to “bgdark.png”
    what do you think @Tom-Elliott ?
