Here's a typical desktop scene (Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" Cinnamon flavour). I felt cramped with only one panel so I went to classic mode, and I don't think I'll be switching back. There's so much room for applets! My Cinnamon theme is Cinnamint Blue (a mod I made of Cinnamint), GTK theme is Mint-X-Blue (a blue mod I made of the default theme) - but when using programs as root, the controls/hilights/etc turn red. I ran thewidgetfactory as root so you can see the difference. You can find out how to do it yourself in the main theme forum, under "Mint-X-Colours". The window decorations is a mod of a theme originally based around "Windows Whistler" - I switched it over for buttons on the left, I rounded the corners, turned the close button red, and then flattened the buttons.

Image

Note if you will the menu at the top left - the Linux Mint logo is the "m" in "menu". I thought it was pretty clever.

I even customized the close button image for the workspace/window overview, to match the window decoration:

Mint 14 - Cinnamon
I used to be constantly switching between DE's, and changing my themes and conky and desklets and whathaveyou, but I feel like I've really settled down with this setup. These days I'm more concerned with what I can do with my computer than I am with what I can do to my computer.

You know like putting your desktop as you have it in KDE?

Well yes, I like menubar on top (+ dock, as you can see).

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 :)


Windows 8 does need a lot of theming work to make it look good but I think all the fun apps coming from their new app store makes up for it.

That's because Micro$oft have decided there's no future in desktops, Bim.

I've moved to Mint KDE, at least for now. I split my 3840 pixel wide images down the middle with gimp. Works a treat.

One man's "look good" is another man's horrible, clearly :)

Default win 8 looks nice - but classicshell creates an odd hybrid between win 7's rounded 3D glass and the square flatness of Win 8. They don't mix well.
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!

Thank You!, I've tried to cut pictures in half, but lose image quality, you do not you?
