Darco, Thanks for posting this. You have a nice looking desktop, but I'm especially grateful that you 'reminded' me I could use liquorix to get the most current kernel. I was debating on trying to add the sid repo until I saw this post.

I can give you the link for the unalterd wallpaper and for the Icon theme Awoken that I got the min logo from and I edited in Gimp. I had a misshap playing around with Mint Debian and lost the wallpaper.

mmesantos1, what is that rad font you are using?


@magian, What font are you referring to? The Logo in the wallpaper, if so it is a icon from Awoken icon set. Let me knwo if you were referring to something else. :)

Spent a good few hours messing around with themes, backgrounds and docks. I've come to the conclusion that I don't like docks. Here's my current odd-looking setup.

Here's my LMDE set-up. I'm using it on an Asus Eee netbook which dual-boots with Windows XP.

I'm using an anime (Di Gi Charat) wallpaper by the way. It's SFW, but if you don't like anime, don't click on the links.

Clean: http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/3527/screenshotrx.png

With Nautilus open: http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/7281/screenshotnaut.png


Specs:

Wallpaper:
The wallpaper is a 800x600 Di Gi Charat image I found, but I edited so that it looked good on a 1024x600 display. If you want it, just ask.

Icons:
Any Color You Like. You can find them on GNOME-look and Deviantart. I'm using them because they're customizable and it's hard to find nice looking green icons. Most green icon themes use what looks like an off-green to me, which I don't like.

GTK/Metacity:
Nodoka-Gilouche with AuroraMint window borders with the colours altered to fit my light green theme. The Nodoka GTK theme can be found in the Debian (testing) repositories, while AuroraMint should be pre-installed in Mint Debian.If it isn't, then it should be in the Metacity theme package in the Debian repos.

Notes:
I like my desktops light and clean, and I am using GNOME Do to open stuff, seeing as menus are unpractical on netbooks, especially ones like the mint menu when viewing all applications (favpurites only is fine, so I have nothing on my desktop apart from the wallpaper and a panel set to auto-hide. Also, I have made the icons a darker green since I took those screen captures, as I thought the colour I was using would have looked better in a dark theme. The increased contrast makes them easier to see, too. I might post a pic of the new icon colour later

Hello la_monda,
It's best not to post email addresses etc.,on public forums as you never know who is reading them.
Better to ask for someone to post something on the thread or use the Private Message system
