Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Postby Rob Loach on Tue Mar 25, 2008 12:57 pm

Now that we are thinking about the look of Linux Mint Carbon, it seems like it would be a good time to get some neat ideas from existing Linux Mint desktops out there. So, make your desktop pretty, and then take a screenshot of it (PrintScreen) with your favourite applications and your home folder open. Post your desktop!

I'll start:
Image

  • Linux Mint 4 Daryna running Gnome and Compiz
  • The new Batman trailer in VLC
  • Daft Punk is current playing in Banshee
  • Linux Mint website open
  • Was doing some PHP hacking via Eclipse.
  • Compiz Switch is installed so that I can quickly turn on and off compiz depending on if I want the Compiz effects to drain my laptop's battery life.

Now's your turn to post your desktop!

Could a moderator please merge them?
