Is it possible to change the background color of Galaxy? It's a rather aggressive looking red right now, and I don't see any options in the settings.

Thanks!

I hate the background and colors and have not been able to find a way to change it SO it would be nice if it was addressed
I think you cannot change the background color right now.
But you can get rid of your current aggressive red by just opening the game page of another game.
Galaxy adapts the background theme of the last opened game page and uses it for other parts of Galaxy such as 'Activity' or 'Recent' until you open another game's page.

You can change it by going to GOG GALAXY directory > WEB > STYLES > CLIENT and open the main.css file, go to line 2254 and change the background variable to the color you want, you can even add gradient by making this change:
background: linear-gradient(to top, rgba(102, 192, 244, 0.25), rgba(27, 40, 56, 0.5), rgba(23, 26, 33, 0.75)); -> this gives a gradiente similar to steam, I recommend use notepad++ to open this file.

In my case (as of June 1, 2022), the code was on line 3055.
I was using "Geany" to open the file instead of "Notepad++".
I change line 3055 to: background-color: rgba(23,36,45,0.96);
and I am more than happy with the more Steam-like (cooler) colors as a result.

Thanks, my main.css file was missing (most recent galaxy version) but I made my own .css in notepad++ and only wrote in the line
background: linear-gradient(to top, rgba(102, 192, 244, 0.25), rgba(27, 40, 56, 0.5), rgba(23, 26, 33, 0.75));
and it didn't work. Hopefully custom background feature is added in the future...

The Colors are vomiting. Specially if there are mulstiple Clients over each other + a Browser.
Chaning my DT-Colors to appeal to GOG-Galaxy is NOT an option.

And the solution seems to have changed:
There are 4 Entries by search: background: linear-gradient(to

I changed the line below with no effect:
line 2238 background: linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(0, 0, 255, 0.5), rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)); }
