Mate, that's brilliant. I've tweaked the top one for my setup, but how do you get the music to register. Seems to be missing off the bottom of the first...

A thousand thanks. It looks great!

Haha, that's because I used a little slight of hand. The music "applet" is actually not Conky but the "Now Playing" screenlet with Lucid-light theme, which I then resized to fit the width of my Conky (set at 70%, I believe). I thought the screenlet would integrate well with my Conky the first time I saw it, so I tried it and it turned out pretty good! :)

Why don't you upload a pic of your desktop? Would love to see how you've got it set up.

@Grez, which music applet/screenlet are you using? Also, which Cinnamon theme did you use to get the transparency effect on the menu and panel? Finally, what is your wallpaper a picture of?

Same as you but with the default theme scaled to 85%

Glass-shell theme which I seem to remember came out of the standard cinnamon-settings themes.

Stourport-on-Severn (my home town) basins, UK, August 2010. I actually took the photo on a timed exposure (tripod and around 15s shutter 'speed!'

I had a hunch it might be a picture of your home town. :D It is a beautiful shot!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You always have the sleekest looking layouts.

On that note i have a challenge for you!

That was done with rainmeter, but I would absolutely LOVE a linux version/conky etc.. If you can somehow pull it off. :D (Im currently using one of your mixtures from your deviant art right now. )


I really like this idea, brings a whole new look to your desktop! if it were able to be embedded into the GUI though it could be very interesting! I have yet to master the GUI field but it could be interesting if someone with a little more experience knew where to start at least!

Other than that I am loving the screenshots! good work

@IKingjr
Are your screenis real or mockups? I'm wondering, because you change your desktop every day :D

Nevertheless, your work is awesome! Keep it up. :wink:

I run Linux in VirtualBox and yes they are real. I play with this one or that one for an hour or so. I mostly like playing with GIMP and making walls. Occasionally recoloring themes etc. It's a hobby :)
