Desktop Screenshots Thread - February 2012

I realized I hadn't posted my February desktops yet and while I'm changing my desktop on tomorrow or Wednesday I wanted to post shots of my Mardi Gras themed desktop before I switch to my post-Mardi Gras look. I switched to a purple theme since I couldn't find a Mardi Gras theme for KDE (I could only find one for Gtk, which is useless to a KDE guys like me).

As you can see in the second image I'm using the Qpurple color theme, and the Desktop Plasma theme is Stripe. My Chromium theme is Fizzy6868's Neon Glow Purple theme.

For those interested in enjoying the Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans tomorrow you can snag the live stream from WDSU TV in New Orelans. They stream all of their newscasts and they also stream their Mardi Gras parade coverage.

Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!

beautiful mmesantos1 - I'm in the process of porting the Gnome Shell theme you use to Cinnamon.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

AHA! Docky, I keep hearing about Docky. I might have to try it :) Using DockbarX at the moment, and it's quite nice but not so fancy as the others. But my laptop is old and slow, I wonder if it would hate me for installing Docky :mrgreen:

Just a quick update showing my post-Mardi Gras desktop.

Clean
Image

Dirty (Correscted image)
Image

System Stats:
  • Running LMDE with UP3, KDE 4.7.4 (although I need to find a way to upgrade to 4.8 ).
  • Wallpaper: My own creation.
  • Color: Oxygen Cold
  • Plasmoid Theme: A customized theme using Blend and a few other themes for particular elements
Some plasmoids have been moved from their usual positions to be able to show off the wallpaper better. Other info available on request

@wyrdoak:
Your image doesn't want to load for me. Just an FYI.
ETA: It's showing up now. Nice desk.

Lookin' pretty darn sexy, I might add.

EDIT: Thumbnail now. Forgot that image was so big. >.>

What font are you using for your terminal, and also how did you get the terminal prompt to look so awesome? :3

How do you get the screenshot to show up on the monitor like that, mmesantos1? That's a pretty cool effect.

Thank you BostonPeng, I use this PSD image file: http://submicron.deviantart.com/art/App ... -244063258

It is saved in layers, I use Gimp to add the screenshot to the monitor layer, I have to scale the screenie to fit since my resolution is 1920x1080 but once that is done I save the file as a .png and apply it to a background. :D
