Desktop Background

Postby jamvaru on Tue Dec 11, 2012 7:13 am

I am really fond of the default mint 14 background for MATE. I haven't seen the others yet, but was hoping to see a darker version with glowy letters, etc. Can this be done?
thanks

I am not good enough to do it properly, this is a simple invert in gimp

I'm kinda waiting on KDE 4.10 when there is supposed to be easier animated wallpaper creation. Static wallpaper, eh, kinda gettin old.

KDE - now aren't they just the best for innovation when it comes to finding ways to use up your ram and CPU cycles for a desktop?

I was wondering ,Is Gimp used for creating backgrounds ? If so ,you might experiment with different colours and layers ,etc.
I have never tried to create a background .
Cheers,

wow, those are both fantastic; did you say the second one is derived from the first or the original or default?
