Anyone know what System Monitor is used in this picture? It looks so good, I'd love to have it.

I see.

If it isn't too much trouble, how did you configure yours to look like that? It would fit so well into my whole environment :)

Thanks for the config.. one more question (thanks for bearing with me, I'm still new to all of this).

Do you know why mine has random letters/numbers in place of the symbols on yours? (That was actually my favorite part!)
Image
Thanks!

Edit: Never mind, I simply had to install the fonts!

Wow.. Gotta make mine in Blender :p Then I'll post it.
How did you do the transparency, the menus with launchers, like in Mac OS? Are you guys using Mint? It looks awesome!

OS: Sabayon 3.2 (best out of the box experience ever seen)
includes OUT OF THE BOX:
- Nvdia/ATI 3d drivers
- Beryl (also runs from live cd/dvd)
- XFCE/Fluxbox/GNOME/KDE (all working with beryl)
- enabling/disabling XGL/AIGLX with a mouse click
- all aplications you can imagine (including wine, google earth, azureus etc etc)
- Best Artwork

greetZ,
a Sabayon user who doesn't understand why people haven't found this before...
(I haven't installed a damn thing yet, all was already there, now even your grandma can put the DVD in and pimp with Beryl and stuff without installing stupid drivers and this and that and she can show you apps you never heard of and blabla without looking for hours at a terminal in ubuntu to make things work like a nerd :) )


Where did you get that desktop from? :?:

Cube:

Icon theme: Glass
Gtk2 theme: Water Vapor (I customized the fonts and such)
System monitor: Conky (I can post the rc if anyone wants it)

I love the stuff you come up with. I recognize the icon theme, as I use it too, but where are you getting your wallpapers?

Oh, and I changed mine again. Click for full size.

Another change, for the upcoming Spring Equinox:

@Red-E-Made:

Thank you! That makes me feel all warm-fuzzies inside :oops: :lol: When I first started with Mint, I was all drooolicious envy of all the beautiful and striking desktops people were creating, so I spent time (with many thanks to mmsantos1 for so much help) learning to use all the various themes. I feel I'm finally starting to reach the lovely desktops that I envied :lol:

I found that one, Reve D'Orient, right here on the Mint wallpapers forum. It was so gobsmackingly beautiful, I had to have it right away :lol: :lol: It's now available on Gnome-Look, so I understand.

Many of my wallpapers were given to me by a friend, so I don't know where he got them. Others, I found here: http://www.zixpk.com/2008/04/picture-of-meaning.html

All of my application, window border and icon themes I found on Gnome-Look. Does that help?
