Package for devuan: chicago95-theme-all

Because self-promotion (erm, I mean… learning!) is the purpose of this blog, here is a package I have assembled from a nifty upstream: Chicago95!

You can go get it from the OBS repository now.

Backstory

I was helping a family member set up a system to look like a particular non-free OS, and an old one was acceptable, and even preferred. After some research, I discovered a few good places to look for themes:

There were multiple options for the type of theme I wanted, but Chicago95 was the most cohesive and cleanly-installed set.
