Yeah, it's fun to trick out your desktop for a photo-op, but I myself usually simplify it back down for my day-to-day use. :D


Indeed. :P

I also find 2 panel setup is more organized and increases my work flow. :D

Your basic new release of #!Crunchbang-Statler 2011.11.25 (Debian set to 'stable' with Openbox)

Haven't changed too much - yet . . . only the background, the Ob-theme, the IceWeasel-theme, the tint2-panel and changed to a simpler Conky.

I would normally, have switched the WM to Fluxbox, by now ... but, I am liking this Openbox set-up.

Love the Plasmoids on your GNOME3 desk. I didn't know the combination was even possible.


Thank you! When I saw the article I immediately got a flash in my head: Usability of LM12 + the beauty of gnome-shell + kde widgets on my desktop = love at first sight :D
I've now added the digital clock to the desktop. Digital clock widget, CWP widget, custom conky made by me on the bottom, carefully chosen wallpaper to fit them all... PERFECTION ! (in my eyes at least :P)

Here is an interesting thing that I discovered about the mgse menu:
You can edit the picture and text by opening a terminal and typing
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/menu@linuxmint.com/extenion.js

Then change
Code: Select all
let icon_file = icon_path + "menu.png";

on line 264 to
Code: Select all
let icon_file = icon_path + "menu.svg";

to get the linux mint logo and change
Code: Select all
this._label.set_text(_("Menu"));

on line 279 to
Code: Select all
this._label.set_text(_(""));

to get rid of the text (you can insert any text you want int the quotation marks)
Finally, I would suggest copying the extension before you modify it and then renaming it in the metadata.json file from
Code: Select all
{
"uuid": "menu@linuxmint.com",
"name": "Menu",
"description": "An advanced Gnome Shell Menu",
"shell-version": [ "3.2" ],
"localedir": "/usr/local/share/locale",
"url": "http://github.com/linuxmint/mgse-menu"
}

to (for my example)
Code: Select all
{
"uuid": "menuimproved@linuxmint.com",
"name": "Menu Improved",
"description": "An advanced Gnome Shell Menu",
"shell-version": [ "3.2" ],
"localedir": "/usr/local/share/locale",
"url": "http://github.com/linuxmint/mgse-menu"
}

Enable menu improved in gnome-tweak tool and it comes up like this:

I'm trying to emulate certain elements of your theme, but I'm having difficulties doing so. First off, how did you get your Dropbox icon to remain blue? Secondly, how did you get the transparent top bar like that? So far I have the following:

It's no problem. As a KDE user I find myself leaning a lot towards blue, plus I'm a Dodger fan so Dodger Blue is my favorite color anyway.

Great screenshot ... nice color schemes. (I had to adjust your links BBC Codes to make it show in this thread)

Love that wallpaper.

Lol, I like how it's zoomed in to the "I don't do Windows" section. That is a nice, interesting Desktop!
