Really cool background with xplanet and XFCE

Postby lintel on Fri Sep 12, 2008 11:10 am

Hi, I just came across this post http://meandubuntu.wordpress.com/2008/09/01/background-with-xplanet-and-xfce/ which would make Mint look absolutely terrific (since black is the preferred background anyway) :wink:

@ Jason's site you find bigger screens and a detailed description how to obtain this background. Unfortunately its still a little geeky :shock: thus may I suggest to integrate the setting of the xplanet-parameters into a Mint-control-panel which then generates the script?

IMHO this makes a great eye-catching background -- what do you think?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Very eye-catching :) Desktop beauty is a very subjective thing though.

Beautiful.

I love snagging a nicely done desktop like this and slapping it down as the background on my government work computer, a stinking Windows box. Its the only bit of control I have with that computer.
