2.1. Changing the Look

To change the appearance of the objects use the Theme item under Swell Foop ▸ Preferences ▸ Appearance. Selecting an item from the list changes the theme immediately.

You can also create your own themes, although the process is not very straight-forward yet. Use a copy of an existing theme from /usr/share/gnome-games/swell-foop/themes/ as a template and alter it with your favorite paint program. Put the result in $XDG_DATA_HOME/gnome-games/swell-foop/themes/. It will be automatically included on the themes list next time you run Swell Foop. $XDG_DATA_HOME is usually ~/.local/share/.

2.2. Changing the Size

The Board size list under Swell Foop ▸ Preferences ▸ Setup contains three settings: Small, Medium and Large.

2.3. Changing the Number of Objects

The Number of colors option under Swell Foop ▸ Preferences ▸ Setup allows you to increase the number of different objects.

2.4. Changing the Speed

The default animation is designed to be smooth and graceful. If you like playing fast and furious then this may be too slow for you. By selecting the Zealous Animation option under Swell Foop ▸ Preferences ▸ Operation you can speed up game-play at the expense of animation quality.
