  • Category -> Webmin -> Webmin Users.
  • Select your username (e.g. root).
  • Open "User interface options" and ensure the "Personal Theme" field is set to either "From Webmin Configuration" or to the specific theme name (StressFree).

Webmin theme close to completion

The ability to control a server remotely using a friendly web-based GUI is very handy. Novell makes some fairly nice web-based management tools but the same cannot be said for Linux. Webmin exists but I have always been put off by the fact it all looks like it was put together in the early 90's by someone who was in the process of going blind. Recently there have been some more cleaner themes out for it but still nothing to write home about. So to fill in the time and try out some cool new things and brush up on my poor Perl skills I have put together my own, far more tasteful theme for Webmin.
