Very nice setup. Is this KDE 4.10? Could you tell me how you went about installing KDE on LMDE? Do you like it better than Mint KDE? Have a good day and thanks for sharing!

This is My current Cinnamon 14.1 Desktop ( Tried to give it a Gnome3 Look ) :

Everything displayed on the desktop runs without problems, The games with wine ofcourse ( after much tweaking ). the Windows 8 icon is a shortcut to my Windows 8 Vmware machine. The icons i spent a few days customising, as im sure you will notice i dont use default icons for anything really...

Thanks Twodogs.

This is KDE 4.8.4, I used Schoelje's unofficial LMDE KDE found here. (This install is from his very 1st one he released and I've just been updating) I did try the normal LMDE distro and had KDE installed from the offical Mint repo, late last year, but found it problematic and it took too much disk space, so I reinstalled using Schoelje's distro.

Yes I do like it much better than the normal Mint KDE as LMDE is a semi-rolling distro and I don't have to do a reinstall/major upgrade every 6 months.

At the moment there is no KDE 4.10 Debian based repo i know of, the only one that is close to getting a working repo is Leszek from ZevenOS, his Neptune distro which is based on Debian Testing has KDE 4.10 RC and he is working on the final KDE 4.10, once he has it finished I'll add his repo and try to get KDE 4.10 on one of my LMDE-KDE Testing installs.

Congrats on getting KDE up and running everyone.

Change mine a bit and made it a lot less busy dual display desktop.
With just a vertical panel. Never did like the bottom panel as stoled important real estate from apps.

KDE Mint 14 backport to 4.10 on dual displays. Never understood all the complaints of KDE being a resource Hog? :shock:
As to desktop state is a couple hundred megs less than Cinnamon clocking in at 462mb for KDE. So where is all this resource hog issues?
As found more responsive and snappier than my Cinnamon 14 desktop.

Cheers Zerozero, your KDE 4.9.5 desktop looks really good, so good I've pulled the trigger and switched to testing so I can install KDE 4.9.5.

Also a big thanks for that info about steam, finally got it installed =)

Raymerjacque, Tdockery97 and Orbmiser, great desktops too.

I use a 23 inch wide Cinema 3D monitor, so desktop I made with dark background, dark toolbars and window borders and so froth to really make everything else pop up, even icons are designed to give that popup look and it looks really great, In 2D its also good, but not as great as 3D obviously.

btw, gaming in linux in 3D is awesome... My windows friends are so jealous, most of them arent computer nerds, just gaming freaks so they think linux has something to do with the whole 3D gaming thing ... I just smile and urge them to try mint and get a cinema 3D monitor :)

You can probably guess what OS this is:

I knew Metro was going to be a touch friendly experience but I'm surprised at how bothersome it is if you don't use it with a touchscreen. It's not, like Gnome Shell and to some extent Unity, a desktop UI which has taken on some ideas and concepts from touch interfaces, it's 100% purpose made for touch devices, much more so than the Android OS on my phone (which works sorta OK as a desktop OS - http://www.webupd8.org/2012/07/android- ... -with.html).

I can only imagine how many old Windows users around the world daily are utterly perplexed when they experience Metro for the first time on a laptop or a PC. But it's not fair to judge it as a desktop OS because it looks like an easy-to-use and simple interface for touchscreens and I'd love to play with it on a tablet, it's just Microsoft's marketing that's weird - can't believe they're targeting it at desktop/laptop users at all.

I installed the classicshell UI makeover (the "Gnome Classic" of Windows 8 - only chance my girlfriend will like Win 8 and not ask me to install Win 7 again) which gives this result:
Image
A slightly daft looking Win 7 desktop. I guess re-installing Win 7 will be on my todo-list tomorrow :D

Anyway, it's good to be back on Linux Mint again :)
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!
