Title: Post your desktop
Post by: Zera on May 31, 2009, 02:19:44 pm
Hey, what's a forum without one of these redundant threads? :P

You know the drill -- take a screenshot of your current desktop, and post it here. (preferably as a thumbnail, or a direct link)

Current Desktop (http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/3061/image1veq.jpg) - Windows XP Pro SP3, 256 MB RAM, Sempron 1.6 GHz (yes, you can have a pretty desktop without buying 2 gigs of RAM and a dual-core processor!)

I had to do some registry tweaking to get the Windows 7-like taskbar going, but it's totally native. I'm not running any special programs to run the theme.

Question!
Is "NSFW" material allowed? =D

If not, I'll have to change my desktop.

Windows XP, 1,5GB RAM, processor is Intel 4

The wallpaper was my father choice. I don't bother about the desktop except the links and files in it.

As you can see, is full of games, software, z80 dev stuff and some notes.

AP well, it depends of what's NSFW in your desktop. If it had profanity or blood it's fine. If it's something like Hitler almost naked or shock sites pics then it would  probably go in the Randomness section. As for porn and hentai or shock site pics containing nudity, it's a big no, though :P

Personally i won't post my desktop because it has nothing special. I just use the default Windows XP theme (that comes before installing any service pack). The only thing is that it's in french and my desktop is filled with icons :P

nice indeed. For my desktop, it looks pretty much like Cooliojazz's, altough with less stuff in the taskbar.

Personally I hate the dock thing like on Mac OS X, though. Back then I made my windows looks like Mac and I had the dock disabled because it annoyed the shit out of me. It was always in my way when I had windows maximized or resized to something big

So I did both.

nope it doesn't move. This is the kind of optical illusion that is so trippy that it looks like it moves, though. If you stare at it for a long while I think when you look away afterward, your vision becomes weird for a short while. In other words hallucinate without the use of drugs lol :P

Post by: Iambian on July 15, 2009, 02:28:08 pm
I personally can't understand how people can live their lives with their desktop so cluttered up. I certainly had a phase where I would clutter my desktop up, too, but it got annoying fast. Anything I won't be using for more than a few weeks or that I deem way too important to not have fast access to goes in my "Unused Icons and Files" folder, so they're still there if I ever need them again. I keep most of my icons on the outside of the screen so I can still access them while my dev environment is open. Also, for the love of all that is holy, make your taskbar dual-layered. You can fit so much more in there and still have room for everything else while still having everything readily available.

Aaaanyway. That's just me. This is my second screenshot, but this time, it's of a clear desktop.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: TravisE on July 15, 2009, 09:57:57 pm
I used to kind of organize my icons the same way back when I used Windows. Now, though, I barely have any icons on my desktop, since I always leave programs open on several virtual desktops so I never get to see the desktop anyway (why let all that screen space go to waste). :) That might be also why I've been too lazy to change the background picture in months—what's the point when I rarely see it. I have buttons and a small command-line box on my taskbar thing to open stuff quickly.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: allynfolksjr on July 16, 2009, 01:52:44 am
I have a ssh applet in my panel and run tilda to quickly access a terminal and various servers. I'm much like Travis though, since I hardly ever actually see what the desktop is.

(And have I mentioned how awesome Travis is? Because he totally is)

Upgraded to Windows 7 RC and I've been enjoying it.
I'm using the background rotation thing they have that changes the background at certain intervals.
It's currently set to change every hour. Anyway, this theme is for drawings done by my ex-girlfriend.
(Not all of them shown above. Just the ones I remember to screenshot.)

Also, I found a series of cool icons and set-up my folders and such appropriately.
Um... I like it.

Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 30, 2009, 04:59:28 pm
Yeah we're off topic lol, but I also play Zerg. I'm not that great, though, I tend to not think fast enough at anything XD. I need to play fewer money map games and practice on regular Starcraft, though, because money maps gets boring after a while since you know where everyone else base are located (no expansion) so sometimes it's always the same thing. I have a record of 220-315-40 on Brood war on US East. I used to have 100-200-20 on my older account on SC Classic, but for some reasons it vanished...

Great or not, I still like to play some games from time to time, though.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: jsj795 on September 30, 2009, 05:07:14 pm
lol i have like 40-60-?? something like that on US East... And yeah i need to stop playing on fastest, which really kills me whenever i try to play in regular map. I'm like: where's my mineral?

And i haven't played on original starcraft for such a long time... wow i don't know what i would do without my lurker and devourer. (And yeah i use devourer a lot with guardian)
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 30, 2009, 05:11:11 pm
yeah when I play Classic, I always am like "shit, I forgot there's no lurkers x.x or when I play toss dark templars" XD

On Fastest, what I like is how fast paced games are and I like how we can get massive army battles so quick. But when you get back to regular maps, you have troubles because you don't expand fast enough or expand too fast. I also hate how in 4 vs 4 everyone takes the nearby expansion bases so I end up not being able to expand x.x or can expand but run out of gas all the time.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: jsj795 on September 30, 2009, 05:19:49 pm
you should definitely PM me if you plan to play starcraft... Sometimes, I probably can't since I'm very busy right now due to all the college apps and SATs and such. However, once that's all over, yes! Finally I have all the time for me to code and play!

Also, noticing your mini-profile, you seems to have two locations: NYC and Korea. Where are you currently? Because timezones might become an issue (I think it's like 7:21 AM in Korea atm while it's 5:21 PM over here)

when does college apps/SATs and that stuff does end btw?

Oh... I am in NY, and will stay in NY. South Korea was just where i was born and raised until I was 11 yrs old.
The SAT and stuff will finish around December, although i will be able to play before that, but probably 2~3 games max.

Run the self extracting RAR file.
Read the readme.txt file.
Follow the installation instructions.

As always, you may pm or email me about any questions you may have.

Actually, the wallpaper represents Zedd (Zeddicus Zul Zorander), the Wizard from the Legend of the Seeker series. For those that don't know what that is, it's an adaptation of the Sword of Truth books by Terry Goodkind.

It has come to my attention that there is a slight "bug" in the interface setup.
One of the configuration files loses it's extension when the batch file edits it.

To fix, simply open C:\Program Files\nitacku\Samurize\Configs
Locate gmail file, and give it a file extension of ".ini"

Reload the interface. (you can click on the dark gray strip above the 4 icons to reload)
Should work.

You may also experience difficulty setting up ObjectDock.
If it says something about a license not being valid, try saving the license again using the patch tool.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 16, 2010, 04:03:44 pm
I personally wouldn't enable ObjectDock anyway. I really found this annoying as hell when I had it (altough on mac it was better) because it always got in my way and pissed me off
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: {AP} on February 16, 2010, 05:06:25 pm
You can set the ObjectDock to stay on the bottom and not pop-up when you mouseover.

Here's what I made out of the stuff Nitacku gave out.

(http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/8540/nitakustyle.th.jpg) (http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/8540/nitakustyle.jpg)

Thank you, Nitacku! This stuff is great!
I couldn't get ObjectDock to load the nitacku theme, but that's no matter. I prefer my set up. =)

3 bottom bars (start menu on the left side, general programs I use in the middle, recycle bin and currently open windows on the right) and 1 right bar (containing the games I play currently)

Also modified the modules a bit. (I don't have an 'N' drive. ;P)
Well, you can see what's changed for the most part.

Again, thanks Nitacku!

Mhmm, how long ago was 1.13 released? The last time I tried MTVMG in PSX is late 2008 or early 2009, I think. Basically most sounds were some high pitched acute synths. MTVMG has the exact same problem on the Playstation 3, too, from what I heard. IIRC it's just one hard game to emulate in terms of sound. I use ePSXe for it, with Eternal SPU sound plugin

I think it was later 2009. Not totally sure.

It's probably because pSX has trouble emulating XA audio accurately. Games that use different audio structures won't have these kinds of problems. I know in some games, the audio will just drop-out entirely.

That reminds me, I wonder if I still got the Illusiat memories readme..., I should maybe post it at one point and put it online for nostalgia purpose. In 2003, when I uploaded Illusiat series to ticalc.org, Joey Gannon, who was the FA at the time, rejected the entire serie, because there were too many zip files and his excuse was that it would clutter the TI-BASIC games section. TO accept them, he forced me to put them in one zip file, which triggered the release of all 11 avaliable original Illusiat games in one zip file with a readme talking about the serie and describing each games in short summary.

Oops. Didn't notice your response.

I'm not sure if there are any blackbox builds compatible with Vista or 7. You can give it a try and see. I was using it under XP.

On another note: I wish Windows' taskbars were as flexible as those under Linux desktop environments. Earlier, I was trying to find ways to outright remove the Start button, move tray elements to other sections of the taskbar, or remove the tray altogether. I thought it would be cool to have a taskbar as minimal as this:

My linux background is really cool.  Its called "Day and Night" or something.  I can't seem to find it online anymore, but its really cool.  Its a sunrise from above the clouds and the image changes depending on the time of day.  In the morning, its a light blue with a sunrise, in the day its bright with yellow, the evening there's a red sunset, and at night, the sky is dark.  I love it.

yup a lot of people here converted themselves to Linux over the past two years :D, I may eventually do this, but I'm not sure yet. On Cemetech, a lot more people use Linux than us, though. Same for #ti.

As for your desktops could you post screenshots? As for mine it,s still the same thing as I had since last screenshot I posted. On my old machine it's just the default XP green hills background :P

I first made the concept on  paper. All those details are part of illusion that Blender 2.5 brought with bumpmaps

That's insane, I would have thought it would have taken like a week or more to do that. I heard a lot of people say Blender can be confusing to use. I guess it depends of people, really. ANyway nice job

Also you seem quite good at drawing by hand. I made some comics before (some sort of "Livre dont vous êtes le héros" or "Advanced Dungeon & Dragons" in comic form instead of just text) but they look rather crappy x.x

This is for the first 3D design. It turns around 15 hours finally :p

Yes, the most difficult thing in Belnder, is to start. Finally Blender 2.5 is confusing for experimental users as well, because all the settings have been moved, but when you "understand" where they escaped, you're like at home :p
On the other hand, I tried 3Dsmax... it is a jungle for me... an other concept...

GAH! I hate when I get used to a software and they change everything. What I hate even more in a software is when they even remove features and won't tell you. You search for hours, check the help then Google on forums, finding nothing, then finally you ask on a forum, no one knows then after 3 or 4 tries, you get told it was removed. Otherwise you usually get used fast to it

As for the final design, 15 hours is still nice

Finally, Blender 2.5 is so wonderful and so impressive, can make fast renders including the GPU, etc... that you can't say that you hate Blender :p
Furthermore, all the new features are related on the offcial website, but as we know, Blender 2.5 is a beta release (that evolves every day) for the future 2.6 trunk.
Look at the Blender 2.5 topic, started in 11/2007
Every 5 posts is some kind of new feature :

Did you know that Xubuntu's implementation of Xfce actually uses more RAM than Gnome (http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7520)? (scroll down to "Simple comparisons") Even though Xubuntu aimed to be more lightweight, it became something of an oxymoron, just because they included so much robust software with it.

If you want a more lightweight Ubuntu derivative, look into Lubuntu (http://lubuntu.net/). LXDE is not only more memory-efficient, but it also consumes less energy. Pretty ideal for green PCs.

Here are the GTK and Emerald themes.
I'll get the icon theme to you some other way, since it is 11 MB.
Take the final .zip extensions off the two files. You might want to take out the 'blarg' too, since that was to prevent a duplicate filename error.
The themes aren't mine, but they were redistributable to begin with and I couldn't find the sites I got them from.

Runs smooth, boots in 40 seconds (including auto-login), about a minute to be ready to use...
it runs very smooth since I upgraded my graphics card from a crappy gt 8200 (nvidia) to a gtx 9600 (nvidia), also some register edits, and other tweaks to kill unnecesary proccesses and vista is fine.

I can play most games maxed out but online I set them quite low so I don't lag too much (especially in a big game like FFOW which supports up to 64 running and gunning players in one map... :P)

Anyways to answer your question more simply: yes. xD

Looks nice. I remember when I had Windows XP looking like Mac OS X. I always liked Mac OS X look, although I never bothered setting up the bloatware I had to make Windows look like that after formatting my old computer in 2007 and now I happen to like Windows 7 themes.

One thing I hated in Mac OS though was the dock. It always ended up in my way when I tried to select stuff at the bottom of the screen

Yarg! - Oh, I mean why might you think that?  ::)
By desk cleaning I meant organizing all the icons on my desktop. I usually have a bunch of files sitting around from having the default location for saving images from Fireworks and downloads from Firefox being the desktop. I also get a lot of clutter from getting things for Brawl Plus.

Oh yeah, I disabled Autoplay in the registry and have the 'no CD' patch for some of the games. For a couple others, eh, let's just say I borrowed it from a friend.  ;)

Really? What other Joshua's are there? Also, Yeah, I have CFW on my PSP and play homebrew/emulators on it.

Out of curiosity, what you're are did for the red Start button?
I have a modified uxtheme.dll to allow 3rd party themes and I'm running the Zune Theme with the color mod. If you want it I can probably find where I got it, although I've had it for quite a while. If not I can always just pull it from the themes folder and zip it.

The first person to explain how I can do this to my Ubuntu installation gets 3 internets.  Go.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Deep Toaster on November 01, 2010, 09:03:35 pm
First: Download Mac4Lin (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac4lin/). It's a collection of themes with a Mac style. Install it with the included shell script.

Second: For some reason, it forgets to change the pointer and desktop background. Go into System > Preferences > Appearance, click Custom, and change the pointer to the Mac4Lin one. Then find the background on Google Images (http://www.google.com/imghp) and change it.

Third: Install cairo-dock (also known as glx-dock) from the software center. You can customize it a lot, so just play around and find the settings that best match Mac OS X. I won't tell you how because it takes a really, really long time to do it right, but as a tip, remember to change the angle of the doc to about 30 degrees from the vertical.

Fourth: Install Foxdie (http://www.foxdie.us/) for Firefox. Play around with the settings until you get to a combination you like.

Fifth (bonus): This will take a lot of time, but if you have time to kill, change the bookmarks for Firefox to the default ones for Safari (you can see which ones to use in my screenie).

Can I haz Internets nao? ;D

I do not like the look of cluttered desktops. I sorry if i am offending, but it just looks untidy, all these icons everywhere with no apparent order. However there is a very good solution. Get Stardock fences. It's great for tidying up a desktop, and looks 100x better. And you can still have your desktop full of icons except it will look 100x better. It's free and i recommend it to everyone as i think it is one of the most useful tools ever! You can even hide all your desktop icons with it and heaps of other functions!

Just look at my desktop on page 19 for a idea

I don't mind having lots of icons, but not too many either. Every once in a while I clean mine so only the programs I use often and the files I need often remains. I just hate to have to click Start->Starcraft II to play SC when I can instantly click it from the desktop, and I hate the quick launch on Windows 7 so I disabled that.

Everyone has their own tastes, though.

I agree with the icons, having too many small icons is cluttered...
there's a quick launch in Windows 7? i thought it was vista only...
wait there is (well kind of) but it's disabled by default
I drastically changed my taskbar, if u still remember on my emulator screenshot i posted in september i had small icon taskbar, now ive reverted back to big icons. and also before i had a toolbar in the taskbar a while ago, was like a quicklaunch bar (right click the start button ->toolbars-> new toolbar) but i removed it because i got tired of it after a while.
Anyway i have quick access to some important programs (eg: when i am using the screen as a writing tool -its touchscreen) on the rocketdock in the top right hand corner.

Yeah there is and in XP too, but I hate how it is in 7, There's no menu, just the buttons in the taskbar but they are annoying to me.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Jonius7 on November 02, 2010, 02:42:03 am
No, wait you can make it exactly like vista, just don't pin any programs to the taskbar...(i mean to unpin all programs first), First make a folder that will have all your favourite shortcuts then right click on the taskbar, go to toolbars and new toolbar. then browse for the folder with all your shortcuts and select it. Now you have your own quick access toolbar and you can drag stuff onto it too!!!
I hope you get what i mean.
Ill try and demonstrate myself...

also remember to unlock your taskbar
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 02, 2010, 02:49:30 am

All to the left? What do u mean? (you can drag them over) but at least it is possible to make it function like vista and xp (i had that configuration myself for a while)
What i don't like about combining them all is that you can't really jump straight to the window you want, you have to hover over it and then choose. so i chose the 'combine when taskbar is full' option

It's part of the Zune color mod. Let me see if I remember where I got the stuff from.

Ok, here we go (Oh yeah, you might want to scan these to make sure I didn't mess up anywhere):
First, get the official Zune theme and install it.
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=75078 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=75078)
Then get the uxtheme patcher and run that.
For Service Pack 2 or below

For Service Pack 3 (haven't tried this)

Then finally get the Color Mod, run it and extract to 'C:/windows/resources/themes'
http://www.deviantart.com/download/50421916/Zune_Theme_Color_Mod_by_atomikscr.exe (http://www.deviantart.com/download/50421916/Zune_Theme_Color_Mod_by_atomikscr.exe)

Then just go to Display Properties and click the appearance tab. Change theme to Zune and color scheme to whatever you want.
I hope I didn't mess up. Tell me how it goes.  :)

Oh, I don't remember if the Zune theme changes the text for the title bars, but if it does you can set them back to Trebuchet MS font 10.

oh that icon, it's not exactly a show desktop icon, it's "open up windows explorer and navigate to the desktop folder". Windows 7 already has a show desktop button in the bottom right (also right click on this button for options such as peek at desktop, and show desktop)
keyboard shortcuts for desktop
Windows Key + D Show desktop
Windows Key + M Minimise all windows

wow, does almost everyone have a folder called ti stuff?  that's ridiculous.  (it would of course be filled with all the files from ticalc)
Mine is called "random shit" :P I got a few other folders but my main one is that. It's a mess, though...
I have a few folders
in downloads folder:
TI - hosts most of the main stuff
TI-84 - Most of the TI-84 files and stuff r here
TI Dutch - ti-nspire tns files i got from some website... (wait i recently put it inside TI folder)

The school doesn't give us permissions to delete the default icons of installed apps, and since I don't use 99.8% of them, I stack them on top of the recycle bin :P

If you'd really like to hide them, u can get Stardock Fences free... it allows u to hide all icons with a double click, and you can make some show permanently

never mind, u might not be able to do it at school...

Meh, I've tried docks and found that most of what I do is in only 1 or 2 programs, and my start menu has more than enough room for them. Plus, since it's a linux OS I can make the bar small enough to be unnoticeable.
Title: Re: Post your desktop

I personally use Launchy and have all my most used programs pinned to my taskbar so I don't need to run something else. although I should just use the start menu instead of launchy. Less overhead.

Flash drive?

And as a tip, if you want to run Linux from a flash drive, use the old MultibootISOs from PDL. Booting up is a couple dozen times faster if you use it instead of their standard installer for some reason.

They replaced it with YUMI, though, and now it's just as slow as the standard USB installer.

Thanks :)
I wasn't sure if it was in the standard repository or not.

@DJ: Nope, 'cause that's the background for my actual PSP, the one I'm currently posting from with the busted disk drive. For all intents and purposes I have no computer of my own; it's fubarred. The closest thing I have is the family laptop, which is the only thing I can connect my calc to. Suffice it to say chances to use it are few and far between.

Hey Deep Though, I'm having issues getting things to actually display when I log in with a unity session, do you have any experience with setting it up at all?

I'm not surprised. Desktop managers often take some configuring before they'll start working, and packages, unlike OS installs, want you to do it yourself.

I've never had this issue getting a DE to work. KDE GNOME and LXDE have all worked pretty much out of the box for me. I only had to do a little work for LXDE to get it to show up in the KDM menu when I was playing around with it.

Ugh....Unity *Shudder*
Nice for netbooks, I suppose. I still prefer GNOME, but hey, to each his/her own :P
For netbooks it's great, after all a full desktop doesn't really work that well for it.
I still like GNOME/KDE but this would be cool to try out.
I heard Unity will be shipped as the default DE in the next Ubuntu desktop release.

Yep, thats the case. But the classic desktop will still be available through an option in the login screen, so you will always be able to switch back if you don't like Unity.

Hey Deep Though, I'm having issues getting things to actually display when I log in with a unity session, do you have any experience with setting it up at all?

I just installed the entire netbook remix (complete reinstall), so I didn't need to set it up at all.

But according to http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/ubuntu-1010-will-get-unity-ubuntu-light.html (scroll down to red box), you can install the devver's package of Unity with

Code: (Linux apt-get) [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-dx-team/une
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity

from PPA. (Other bleeding-edge versions are at https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~canonical-dx-team if you want.)

EDIT: Here's what's left of my thumb drive after I set up Ubuntu with over 3 GB persistency:

EDIT2: Dang, I missed 2 MB :P

EDIT3: I think I know why I like Unity so much. It's like the Mac OS Dock :love:

here's my current desktop. at the moment, i'm fangirling over wakfu (a french mmorpg/show).
whenever i start customising things i take them as far as possible, changing backgrounds, icon sets, xsplash images, and everything else i can possibly manage to make them fit the theme. right now, the icon in the top left corner there is the only ubuntu logo/icon that appears at any point during the operating system's bootup/running/shutdown. oh, and i set my log in page to slowly fade into the game's intro music if left sitting for a bit :P

EDIt:oh, and i made a matching firefox persona as well XD

changed again, and finally got around to tweaking gnome-3.2.0 a bunch.

I already made two ( Hosting them in the omni (http://withg.us.to/eeems/omni/) repo ) that just clean up a few of the things on the interface.

after a very long while of poking around, i think i finally have a setup that's going to stick. my gdm has a couple of panels that can be shown or hidden by clicking the cat's eye nebula in the top left, just in case i don't feel like logging in or am letting someone whom i don't completely trust use my compooper to check email or something. both the gdm and my desktop share a backdrop slideshow of different nebulae, real and fictional. i swapped out gnome-panel for xfce4-panel, because the first was a bit slow, and added a custom lipik notes theme and tilda dropdown. oh, and my gdm loops randomly through a collection of space-oriented mp3's (using mpg123) and displays metadata via libnotify =D

Erm....what?
I'm so confused at what you meant right now.

To clarify to everybody:
Unity and Gnome 3 are two very different things. One is being developed and maintained by the people behind Ubuntu, and the other by, well the people behind Gnome 2, and 1 :P
Gnome Shell is the desktop manager for Gnome 3 and as far as I know it has nothing to do with Unity. Unity came into being after a dispute on the path Gnome 3 was going to take.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: willrandship on January 05, 2012, 11:44:41 pm
but Unity runs on the GNOME backend IIRC. It's as much Gnome 3 as MATE is, with the exception of who is developing it (which matters a lot less when you're running off of the same base)

A quick wikipedia quote:
Quote
Unity is a shell interface for the GNOME desktop environment developed by Canonical Ltd for its Ubuntu operating system.

See, GNOME Shell is one desktop for GNOME. MATE (a Gnome 2 fork running on gdm3) is another. Unity is yet another.

And I prefer XFCE. It gets application compatibility with gnome AND kde programs, and doesn't complain about either (something I've run into problems with trying to run one type off of the other) AND it's significantly faster. It reminds me of Gnome 2, which used to be my favorite, but I'm afraid to use MATE since it looks like they plan on phasing it out eventually. XFCE has no such worries.

Edit: Aww, it appears electricsheep doesn't like being screenshotted. oh well. It's the actual program, not a video clip or a still shot!

Why, GNOME, must you try to become another KDE4? :'(

Plus, GNOME 3 removed screensaver support! >:(

And just to keep it OT, I made electricsheep my Background. It looks awesome.

Sigh. The latest version of Ubuntu has Unity interface by default, but you can change it. Never associate a distribution with its default interface, but with its default applications, package manager, etc.

I am an Ubuntu user and I use Awesome WM, which is an advanced window manager, configurable with Lua, and I love it. Just because I use Ubuntu, I don't have to use Unity.

Install Ubuntu and choose another interface:
- KDE;
- xfce;
- Gnome Shell;
- dwm;
- Awesome WM;
- xmonad;
- i3;
- Enlightement;
- Pantheon;
- etc.

OK.

In the login screen you will see a gear next to your name. Click on it and select the desktop environment you want. GNOME is GNOME3/ GNOME shell, and GNOME classic is pretty much like GNOME 2. You can install more Desktop Environments with terminal:

XCFE:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

LXDE:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

KDE:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

Hope that helps!

EDIT:
If your a real geek, get the awesome DE:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install awesome

Unity sucks.
Have a try to Gnome 3 (select GNOME when you login) =)

Unity is a Gnome shell for the Gnome 3 desktop environment, just like Gnome Shell. Perhaps you mean Gnome Shell?
Erm....what?
I'm so confused at what you meant right now.

To clarify to everybody:
Unity and Gnome 3 are two very different things. One is being developed and maintained by the people behind Ubuntu, and the other by, well the people behind Gnome 2, and 1 :P
Gnome Shell is the desktop manager for Gnome 3 and as far as I know it has nothing to do with Unity. Unity came into being after a dispute on the path Gnome 3 was going to take.
Correction, Unity is the TI-81 incarnation of Ndless (http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/425/42572.html). On a calculator forum, calc definitions of software names must have priority over their computer counterparts. Otherwise, it will encourage Texas Instruments to implement division by zero on their OSes. :P

Anyway my computer desktop didn't change in the past 2 years, except briefly a few weeks ago when I somehow lost my background so I changed it to AITS cover (one of my old albums), to finally change it back.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Juju on January 12, 2012, 01:47:39 pm
Yeah, indeed, Unity (the TI-81 utility) > Unity (the current Ubuntu WM).

And I change my background once in a while according to my mood, currently it's Cirno.

It can and does take up CPU at times, but so does Windows Gadgets. You either have one or the other (or none at all)

Here's Puppy Linux running on my thumb drive. It's actually really nice after you figure out how to customize it.

It shows my (failed) attempt to run a Puppy emulator within a Windows emulator within Puppy Linux. (Probably a bad idea to emulate the system you're running on, filesystem and all.) At least Wabbit works.

Title: Re: Post your desktop

Puppy Linux! :D
Yep :D I really like the way it handles persistency. Instead of keeping a filesystem in a file (like "casper," which Ubuntu uses when you boot it off a thumb drive), Puppy deletes and re-saves the entire filesystem into an encrypted file when you end your session.

That way you don't suddenly see a message telling you you've run out of memory like with Ubuntu (it's happened to me several times), which keeps appending to casper until the file runs out of room—and you can't delete old data or anything.

I guess it would wear out my flash drive faster though.

It's part of a theme pack called Placebo (http://solmiler.deviantart.com/art/Placebo-for-Windows-7-188414149) (cold light, specifically).
That's actually a bit old, it looks like this (http://darl181.webuda.com/other/desktopw0923.png) now - I customized the start orb so it doesn't look so empty with the vertical taskbar (also windows 8 logo woo) and the close buttons to make sense :P

Vijfhoek mine is even more cluttered with icons, but since I discovered it was possible to hide icons without manually removing them, I sometimes keep them hidden until I need them.

Here are my Opera speed dial and Windows desktop wallpapers right now:

-I haven't updated my speed dial links since 2009.

you should definitely give MATE a try, if you haven't already. it takes a bit more work to set it up, but the end result is pretty fantastic. after the mate+finely-tuned compiz setup i've had for the past year or so, anything else just feels like trying to work with toys.

How did you do that?
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Darl181 on January 09, 2013, 12:08:59 am
Basically you scale it around without supersampling then paste a texture (something like a halfway-transparent square with opaque corners) over it (ctrl+; ftw), play with the opacity until you like it.

Post by: shmibs on January 09, 2013, 12:32:16 am
/me increased saturation and contrast, used gimp's pixelising blur (5*5), added another layer, flood filled it with a 5*5 square texture with a transparent back and a black line along the bottom and right, merged that down, and then did a 2 pixel gaussian blur.

Yes, it's a mod: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/940974-125sonic-ethers-unbelievable-shaders-glsl-shaders-dynamic-shadows-more/
This video nicely demonstrates the capabilities of the shader. The only problem is it's GPU intensive, as in more than Crysis, because the code isn't optimized both in the shader code itself and in the way the shaders were added on top of Minecraft.

If you can have it run a script periodically and display an image, then yes.
Here is the script :

#!/bin/bash

cd ~/GeekLets/XKCD
curl -s --location http://xkcd.com/ | grep embedding | sed 's/Image URL (for hotlinking\/embedding): \(.*\)/\1/w temp'

wget -O xkcd.png $TEMP

As I said (http://ourl.ca/3395/344107), I prefer dark backgrounds. I think Luna (or Nightmare Moon or Nyx) is pretty much the only pony who fits this criteria. Plus she looks pretty badass.

Also it's my theme on Facebook (http://jointheherd.little.my/).

New OS, new desktop ! :D
I'm running Arch Linux with KDE4.

Spoiler For If you want the XKCD widget:
Simply add an image Plasmoid (you may want to set an auto refresh period) and use this script with cron to download the image :
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

cd ~/Scripts/XKCD
curl -s --location http://xkcd.com/ | grep embedding | sed 's/Image URL (for hotlinking\/embedding): \(.*\)/\1/w temp'
TEMP=$(cat temp)
rm temp
wget -O xkcd.png $TEMP
If you want you can change the download path on the cd line.

Edit : KDE actually had a comic strip plasmoid which is much better than the above.

people who watch and listen to lots of things and also like to keep backups of stuff. i have about 6TB of storage, and it's ~75% full. when dealing with huge chunks of storage, your RAM gets filled up to be used as cache very quickly, so the more you have the faster things work.

Also, I think for other people who do heavy multimedia editing (especially HD vids) it needs a crapload of RAM too.

I used to have my minecraft.jar on my Desktop... Then I decided I wanted an icon, so I put it back in Downloads and made a custom launcher with "java -jar '/home/steven/Downloads/minecraft.jar' " as the command.
Also, Unity sucks. :P

Post by: shmibs on July 11, 2013, 08:09:04 pm
there several reasons that it could be lagging, not the least of which is that unity exists.
what java runtime are you using? what command are you using to launch the jar? it might not be allocating enough memory for itself, or it might be an openjdk problem.

what about hardware? also, i mentioned unity as a prime suspect because compiz+it makes for an incredibly bloated, resource-hogging window manager+compositor. if i were you, i'd install something more sane, like mint with MATE (http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php), and then run compton (https://github.com/chjj/compton) for compositing (desktop vsync, transparency, window shadows if you want them, etc). well, actually, if i were you i'd install arch :P

I don't do games much, but personally gnome classic/"fallback" with metacity for a wm seems pretty lightweight, esp. after you end synapse, nemo/nautilus (strongly suggest nemo btw (http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/how-to-install-nemo-file-manager-in.html) ;)), etc processes. If you really want to, you can set up a script or a couple of launchers to switch between compiz and metacity (guessing compiz-fusion icon is defunct by now, but there's prolly something).

Also it can look/be pretty slick if done right. :P

Just as a side note java from oracle seems to run a bit faster than openjdk. Sounds like you don't have that tho, so yeah.


Speaking of posting desktops, did some polishing* and now woo 64-bit os. Not that it's visible but yay.

It doesn't open a proper menu afaict, it leads to the tiles screen :/


Kind of ot, but what's up with this flatness trend in graphic design lately? Here we are in the 21st century.. and we're making bright, loudly-colored interfaces that look like 3.1 themes without bevels or something. Edges and corners seem to mostly be aliased.
There's even gtk themes picking up on it :P

I meant how in Windows 8, instead of the Windows 95 or XP start menu, a new page appears with tiles like on a smartphone. Windows 8 got many negative criticism due to that because many people have been used to the original menu for 15 years and are not willing to have to get used to something new or saw the forced change pointless.

Not too sure, but maybe 3D stuff is seen as a bit too fancy nowadays and they're slowly trying to head back to Atari 2600 style GUIs. That said, I don't think Omni would look too bad if gradients were removed and replaced with a two-color thing, as long as the right color scheme was used.

I lol'ed. That said, in Windows 7 I had FAR less problems than in XP. I haven't tried Vista enough to judge, though. Windows 98 (non-SE) and XP were crash-havens, although at least XP was just apps behaving weirdly, requiring CTRL+ALT+DEL, rather than BSOD's every minute or so. I have only needed to force restart my Seven computer once.

That said, in many cases it's the application fault for having bugs or using innapropriate hardware (outdated video cards, for example), not the OS.

My desktop has changed a fair bit, but the general structure of icons on the desktop hasn't in the past ... so many years.

EDIT: Yes, I have a "Turn off Monitor" button. Very useful in the case of laptops, where most of them don't have a power button to begin with (most just sleeps the computer, which defeats the purpose of just turning off the monitor)

gedit uses gtk3, so it takes longer to load etcetera, and it has fewer features because the gnome team has been working to faze out everything they don't find fitting for their "brand name". pluma also integrates with mate's preferences (though i don't think there's a difference any more)

Maybe there are tv's with them as well? If it's possible to attach the things to a wall it shouldn't be too difficult for someone to design a rotating bracket.

I just don't know what went wrong
:P

Been a while since I posted mine. I guess it's safe to say I'm satisfied with gnome fallback, seeing as I've stuck with it for about three whole months now.
And it's even managed to stay clean. The panel also hides (unless I glitch it so it stays out ofc =P ) so normally it's just a 1-pixel line across the top ^.^

new deskotp, now with two screens!
Spoiler For desktop:
(http://134.0.27.190/mynewdesktop.png)
What's with the glitchiness at the top-left and bottom-right of the picture?? O.O
my left screen is bottom-left and my right one is top-right resulting in two rectangles, bottom right and top left, where there is no screen, and they just seem to appear that way with my screen shot program (ksnapshot)

So you use KDE apps in XFCE ? I do the same in Awesome. :P I use Kate and Konsole instead of other lightweight equivalents.

Streety, what launcher do you use?

My desktop (automatically switches to moar Mother 3 wallpapers)

I use the custom visual theme Elune. I love how it makes Aero way clearer than stock. Note the slight stripe effect on the explorer top frame (same on all windows), and how the buttons looks clean.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Streetwalrus on October 10, 2013, 03:19:35 pm
Looks nice. ;)
My launcher is Nova, though transparent status/nav bars are a feature of my ROM (crDroid which is an epic CM10.2 kang, though I need to begin working on my own).
Also LOL "Streety". :P

i'm using a modified flat studio (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/FlatStudio?content=154296) (warning, the gtk 3 version is out of date), and the only things i changed for that beautiful theme from one of the defaults are the font, the colours, and the awesome and layout icons, making smaller versions so they wouldn't be rescaled.

ah I see now. I hope she is ok right now btw. As for RFG the entire image content is still up right now so images that were already uploaded remained intact, but we can't upload anymore. The host no longer had time to monitor the many porn that kept getting uploaded there and he didn't want trouble.

I just reinstalled Windows, so I have almost nothing on my computer. (That's why I reinstalled it: too much clutter and some things not working right.) Now my desktop is really clean. The weirdness with the wallpaper repeating and the taskbar only being so far across the screen is because I have a second monitor :D

New wallpaper. Made by myself. Good old Blender Internal render engine.

I don't understand people who use desktop shortcuts.
What's the point of having a nice wallpaper if it's constantly covered with crap.

for those who might be interested, this is how my desktop is organised:

I prefer using desktop shortcuts so I don't need to spend 1 minute navigating to the folders that has all my files. I save a considerable amount of time doing so. However, for important applications I prefer using the Start menu or the quick launch menu, depending of how often I use them. To each their own I guess (besides, my current wallpaper is tiled anyway, so it repeats over and over)

A good file tree organisation and explicit folder names usually do the trick to browse files efficiently.
I keep a few important places in Thunar's sidebar, and xfce4's Directory Menu does the rest.

but indeed, everyone works differently, so everyone has a different organisation

Bottom: Luna: Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 8 (10", 1920x1080)

(Actually, I'm cheating with the top left screen... It's plugged to the Surface which runs a X server remotely connected to the server in my room.)

Indeed, but we never know. If it was assembled on a Monday morning when workers are still recovering from an hangover or on Friday afternoon when they are exhausted from their week of work, it's possible that the computer is just a lemon and have plenty of other defects (and I heard that batch of iMacs in particular was plagued with problems, while other iMacs were fine).

In my case, my root partition is on my external hard disk (didn't wanted to touch my mom's stuff and it was full anyway), and for some reason the BIOS and the various bootloaders I tried weren't able to detect them, so I just installed GRUB4DOS with EasyBCD, moved the kernel and initrd on the Windows partition and told GRUB to boot that kernel with the root being on the external hard disk.

Kind of dirty hack I know, but it works. The thing is, if I update the kernel and don't move it to the internal hard disk, there will be a kernel version mismatch, as in, the modules will refuse to load if they are not compiled for the same kernel version the system is running and the system will be pretty much unusable.

shmibs: What WM is that? It looks like dwm.

Juju: Use a mkinitcpio hook, like this:

sudo -s or su into your root.
Make a file /root/kernel-copy.sh (or whatever):
(replace all references to EFI only stuff with proper locations and text, but the basic operations should be fine; the if block is there to make sure my /boot/efi is rw and not r as it tends to mount for no particular reason (I think it's related to being HFS), so you should be able to remove that unless you have cp problems)
Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env bash

while [[ -d "/proc/$PPID" ]]; do
        sleep 1
done

if [[ "rw" != "r$(/usr/bin/mount | /usr/bin/grep '/dev/sda4' | /usr/bin/sed 's/.*(r\(.\).*/\1/')" ]]; then
    /usr/bin/umount /dev/sda4; /usr/bin/fsck.hfsplus /dev/sda4; /usr/bin/mount /dev/sda4
    echo '  -> Remounted /dev/sda4 as rw [kernel-copy]'
fi

/usr/bin/cp -f /boot/vmlinuz-linux /boot/efi/EFI/arch/vmlinuz.efi
/usr/bin/cp -f /boot/initramfs-linux.img /boot/efi/EFI/arch/initramfs-arch.img
/usr/bin/cp -f /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img /boot/efi/EFI/arch/initramfs-arch-fallback.img

echo '  -> Synced kernel with ESP [kernel-copy]'


Make a file /usr/lib/initcpio/install/kernel-copy (fixing as necessary):
Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env bash

build() {
        /root/kernel-copy.sh &
}

help() {
       cat <<HELPEOF
This hook waits for mkinitcpio to finish and copies the finished ramdisk and kernel to my external drive
HELPEOF
}


Again, change as necessary. Mostly taken from the EFISTUB ArchWiki page (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/EFISTUB).

Thanks bb010g, I'll try this out before next time I upgrade (with the necessary modifications obviously, because I have no EFI, but that should work :P ).

shmibs: What WM is that? It looks like dwm.

i'm using herbstluftwm (http://herbstluftwm.org/) at the moment because all that lua got really annoying. trying to write my own wm now because this setup is kind of messy :P
Title: Re: Post your desktop

I'm trying to keep my Awesome config pretty KISS actually. I started with the default one and tweaked all the stuff as I needed it, and now I expand it with the stuff I want. For example, I just dropped in Eminent to hide empty tags.
I spent some time theming BTW. I need to set up Conky like so (http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Conky_HUD), make a nice config for it and find a nice mouse cursor and it'll be done. :D I'll post a the result afterwards. To give you an idea, I switched all teh things to solarized colors. :)
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: shmibs on May 03, 2014, 05:51:52 pm
conky really isn't worth the time and the effort. it looks nice, but in the end it's a resource watcher that hogs resources itself. you should take a look at vicious; it embeds things directly in a wiibox and sets timers for grabbing different resources so they're only checked when they need to be instead of all together. that + a quick call to htop when you're actually curious about what exactly is using up your resources would accomplish the same goal without being as taxing.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: bb010g on May 03, 2014, 07:32:45 pm
xmobar works pretty well too; it has some built in stuff and can run scripts or one-liners at an interval of your choosing as well as display a changing stdin (normally from your WM).

Installing linux automatically puts the kernel there, right?

Who said it was easy to waste resources on my PC ? :trollface:
Also thanks for the suggestion bb010g but in that case I'd rather use Vicious because it allows graphics and it integrates into Awesome fairly well.

How is awesome doing now, anyway? I used it a while ago, but ended up switching to xmonad because of the lack of documentation for the git version. Has it gotten better about not breaking configs between updates?

Haven't seen any update to it in the Arch repo in a while. From what I see in the wiki it seems to break compatibility every two versions or so. :P Didn't have to face that yet though.. Yet.

Yeah, I love Path Finder, and I'm excited for version 7, since that's supposed to bring better Dropbox integration.

Yeah, I use Safari mainly because it's noticeably more battery efficient than Chrome, and I want to crank as much battery as I can out of my MBP. Dat 17" screen sucks a lot of power. ;) Also because I use an iPhone and iPad, so the syncing benefits are obvious.

Nope, standard Mavericks side dock. Just bumped it to the bottom because it just feels right sitting it in the corner for some reason. :P

I like Chrome's syncing feature (and I just don't like Firefox :P). Can't get rid of touchwiz because locked boot loader! Yay! :|
Fx has syncing as well. In fact it had it first ;)
Oh well. I still like Chome better :P

There are ways around locked bootloaders, but means you will have to void your warranty. I personally don't have a warranty on my phones and I just buy them straight from google, but not everybody is me.

I bought a little 15 inch lcd television. I wanted a small television for my amiga so I could put it on my desk.
This enables me to do stuff other than gaming on it.

That keyboard worries me...
Why that? It has the computer built in or rather: the computer has a keyboard built in.
Seeing that Amiga keyboard makes me realize that back in the days, computers were not always atrociously large, after all. Decades before, didn't computers take an entire room?

It's officially supported by CyanogenMod.
Here's a guide for flashing : http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_d2vzw
And here are the nightlies : http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=nightly&device=d2lte
Or use the M build if you want something "stable" (never had any issue with nightly nor self builds).

In person the amiga is still pretty big. It is about 6 times as large as a modern keyboard. (if you make two stacks and put them back to back)

I like it Keoni29. Personally I wouldn't like handling such cartridge myself, though, because I once tried with a Game Genie with its case removed (since the Game Boy one didn't fit in otherwise) and it kept bending from every way >.<

It's inside a plastic shell now and it works great. The only downside is that this version draws more current because of the larger memory, so I have to swap out the battery more often.

Anyways: 4k screen?

It sure is, the most cheap AOC display there was :) €499. i'm really happy with it, but everything is kind of small..
First i had it running at max 30Hz witch is really bad. now i got it at 40Hz which is nice.

not sure if my GPU can handle it that good, i have integrated graphics "Intel HD 3000",
on my newer laptop i can't get the 165Mhz pixel clock cap off.. so it does not support this resolution :(

The native resolution is a little small, but if i put it in 1080p HiDPi it is just to big (but really sharp).
I was trying to set it in 1440p HiDPi (because that is a nice resolution) and then scale it down to UHD, but my Graphics card is not willing to give me 5120x2880, but it would probably look really good.

For now i see it as a good investment, do you guys think about getting a 4k monitor?

I tested it with Half Life 2: Lost Coast, on 4k with all setting on low (V-Sync off) and my HD3000 got about 12FPS on the stress test.

Spoiler For Spoiler:

You can probably use xrandr to force your display to a certain resolution. I used newrez (which is using xrandr) to set my netbook's resolution to 1344x752, which is not really standard.

It is small but i need to get used to it, it is really handy for programming with sources left and right and code somewhere in the middle,
the 1080p HiDPi mode means GUI scaling 1080p retina like, i switch between these resolutions:

I almost never use it. iTunes is literally the only program I ever run on Windows (except possibly IFE for web debugging), and that's because there are literally no good iPod managers for Linux in existence. (gtkpod I heard is the best one available, but it won't stop crashing.)

Why would you use a Windows VM for iTunes?

Post by: Deep Toaster on August 01, 2014, 10:47:43 pm
It's easier to set up than the Mac VM (which I have done in the past but am too lazy to do now) >.>

I use it about once every three months when I'm refreshing my iPod playlists.

Just finished setting up my computer again with Xubuntu and Windows 8. Not dual-boot—Windows 8 is running in VirtualBox in Seamless mode :P

[img width=900]http://img.ourl.ca/41%20PM.png[/img]
What XFCE theme is that? (Also, how'd you get the workspace widget that small (if that is it in the upper left corner)?)
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Deep Toaster on August 03, 2014, 02:54:39 pm
What XFCE theme is that?
Numix everywhere (Numix theme, Numix window manager theme, Numix notifications) with a bit of tweaking (I changed the highlight color back to sky blue and added transparency to the panel and window decorations).

The background is actually the one in Windows in VirtualBox; the actual desktop wallpaper I'm using is the one shown below, which comes with Xubuntu 14.04 by default.
(Also, how'd you get the workspace widget that small (if that is it in the upper left corner)?)
What do you mean? It's the standard Workplace Switcher panel plugin set up with four workspaces and two rows.

The panel itself is 24 pixels high and one row, which I believe is standard.

By the way, XFCE comes with a drop-down terminal built in which is awesome. This is one of the two features XFCE has by default which I sorely missed on other distros (the other being screen zoom by Alt+scrollwheel).

Nice features indeed. I used Yakuake back when ran KDE. Now that I'm on a tiling manager I have no use for a Quake style terminal though. :P Also screen zoom is pretty useful, I'll have to look into it. Do you have compositing on ? With which manager ?

Nice features indeed. I used Yakuake back when ran KDE. Now that I'm on a tiling manager I have no use for a Quake style terminal though. :P
I also enabled a couple of keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Alt+numpad) for tiling windows.

This and the whole 2x2 workspace arrangement thing are features I missed from Ubuntu with Unity, but it turns out enabling them in Xubuntu is simple enough.
Also screen zoom is pretty useful, I'll have to look into it. Do you have compositing on ? With which manager ?
It's just the standard XFCE compositor (not sure what it's called), which handles window decorations (shadow, transparency).
wait, xfce has that by defualt? I use guake >.<
Yep, it's kinda hidden though. Just add a keyboard shortcut (Settings > Keyboard > Application Shortcuts) to xfce4-terminal --dropdown.

When the dropdown appears, there's a new settings panel where you can configure the drop-down's size, transparency, etc. I don't know why it's hidden away—such a nice feature!

You can actually change the battery icon somewhere in the options to be numerical in Android 4.4, and the circle animation is pretty cool, so I guess you can uninstall that app.

(I assume your interface is in French so here we go: Paramètres > Interface > Barre d'état > Afficher le pourcentage de la batterie. Also, Affichage du niveau de la batterie > Cercle. Note that your mileage may vary.)

I have pictures for all my files on my mac, and it's so organized I have trouble finding what I need :P
Pretty sure that means it's not organized at all :P How about "needlessly hierarchical"? (I used to do that in middle school. Any of the files I would be commonly working on would be five folders nested from the Documents folder...)

I'm a bit more minimalist now. Never any files (or any icons for that matter) on the desktop—if I want to open something, I hit Ctrl+Esc and type it in. (Like Spotlight but significantly less useful.)

Also, really proud of this theme :D It's a combination of this theme (http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/Diehard+4+GTK?content=143443), a bunch of window manager tweaks (transparent window decorations and all that), and a background image I just whipped up in Gimp (because the original theme background is a dead link).

It also shows off me pushing my computer to the limit, with OS X Yosemite and Windows 8.1 VMs running at the same time (had to shut down [email protected] to get the screenshot though).

What do you mean?

Other than the things I mentioned in the post, it's pretty much a vanilla Xubuntu desktop. XFCE is extremely customizable.

xfwm4's theming is borderline silly, it's basically beryl/emerald except with only 1-bit transparency.
So many people using xubuntu...

xfwm4 supports alpha on windows/window decorations though. It's nice enough.

Also, is that XFCE with the default GNOME background? :P What indicators do you have there (top right corner)?
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Darl181 on October 16, 2014, 08:19:39 pm
Just the ageless stripes.png (https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-backgrounds/) :P

In order, there's feedindicator, (https://github.com/nicolas-raoul/Feedindicator) whatever the default network indicator's called, redshift, (http://jonls.dk/redshift/) syspeek, (http://www.webupd8.org/2014/06/syspeek-indicator-ported-to-gtk3.html) indicator-sound, indicator-messages, recent notifications (http://www.webupd8.org/2011/07/recent-notifications-indicator-keeps.html). Next is xfce's brightness applet, then the default power manager set to show all icons (mumble mumble something unity's indicator displaying mouse's battery instead of the one that actually matters).
Really wish there were a way to rearrange them into something that makes more  sense, but can't win em all.

Go into Indicator Plugin settings and under Known Indicators all your active indicators are listed, from which you can arrange using the arrow buttons on the side.

It lets you rearrange some things, but it lumps "Application Indicators" into one item.
Though come to think of it I haven't tested to see if the applet listens to ordering-override.keyfile..

Yes and no, You can automatically resize attachments, but that breaks gifs.

They wouldn't be able to upload a GIF that large due to file size constraints on attachments.

When you use three or four screens, is it possible in games to change settings so that we can have the side monitors at a 45° angle or something, like a racing car or plane? It would be cool O.O

I'm not trying to replicate the GNOME experience (though I do admit GNOME is my favorite UI in a desktop so far).

My panel-plugins are DockBarX for the dock (just removed the window buttons a few days ago—oh how I'd missed using a dock), Notification Area, Indicator Panel, Network Monitor (two instances, one for Ethernet and one for WiFi), System Load Monitor (for memory and swap), CPU graph, Sensor Plugin (from xfce4-sensors, for temperature), Orage Panel Clock (moved the popup calendar to underneath the clock plugin so it makes sense), and Workspace Switcher.

Since taking that screenshot I've also added an applications menu and places menu (not whiskermenu).
A lot has changed since my last screenshot.  I now run Arch Linux with XFCE.
What Firefox theme is that? I've been looking for a flat one.

Thanks for the panel plugins!  The Firefox thing is called "FxOpera."  It's not a theme, rather an addon.



Do I win the sexiest desktop awward?!  ;D

I'll be honest, at first glance I thought that was just a modified OS X desktop.

Hmm, it doesn't seem to play well with dark desktop themes. That's a shame :/

That's pretty ... pretty. What DE are you using? I love the transparent menu buttons at the top of the screen.

EDIT: That's XFCE? O.O Is the clock at the top part of a screen-wide panel? If so, wouldn't the "transparent" panel cover parts of a window when it reaches the top? What's the sound panel plugin you're using?

EDIT 2: Actually, is that Gnome 3? :P

EDIT 3: New one, Numix Circle icon theme, Numix Dark desktop theme. (Yes, I paid $3 for it. IMO it was worth it.) The panel plugin icons on the right are all scrunched together and kind of awful-looking, but apparently I can't change the spacing between icons in Indicator Applet without recompiling the plugin from source O.O

The desktop background is the XFCE development background, apparently. I like it.

@shmibs
Visual Memory. So I need to see everything and have it literally in my view or I get overwhelmed. So literally the clutter is better then trying to deal with multi instance things (I do use vim CtrlSpace its awesome :P)

i meant that you can have all the things up and visible within a single instance with splits and buffers, and then, instead of clicking around, you can have them all up for visual reference but do all the typing into a single window and just have it jump between buffers. see attached vidy-o

Because I've never learned how to use that feature....I think its time to reinstall gvim and get a whole new set of plugins and such....Time for a new thread~~
