A lot of nice artwork here :)
I just turned to the Mint ans like it so much that I decided to make a theme for it for my notebook, I just finished the metacity file and thought I'd share it.
I still have to do the gtk and icons, so it has another gtk attached to it for now until I get to it, The image shows active and inactive states.
I might change it to try and get rid of some of the green but I'll see how everything looks like after I finish the gtk and see if I can balance out all the green.
Tried to keep in the linux mint theme with green. (might have gone a wee bit overbard lol).

Hi All,

Last time I posted here was a screenshot from a crappy old (really old) dell laptop I had for work. I though I'd post one of my set-up on my home PC.

Image

AWN trunk instead of the repo version, allows multiple docks and the 'tab' look. Mint menu and places menu up top, some systems monitors, task-bar, etc. Dock on the left is organised into tools/accessories, internet, multimedia, office and graphics each on a different tab. I used one launcher per tab for the dock on the left, but this makes it hard to change the order, as you have to delete all items that need to change and add them in the right order. Next time, I'll probably use I launcher per app instead.

Had to change the colours on the AWN theme to black grey and white. I have Wally installed and it changes wallpapers which sometimes don't match the Black/blue default theme.

Icons are Oxygen I beleive, and I use "Glassified Mac OS" as my window theme using emerald. GTK theme is Shiki wise.

NB: Couldn't get screenshots to work with any open windows. confused?

Very nice, zengeek! Love the desktop.

My updated desktop:

Clean- (wallpaper from interfacelift.com)
Image

Messy- (wallpaper is Australian Girls do Star Trek by... I forgot who, but I love it!)
Image

Clean again (for those who might want to see the entire Star Trek wallpaper)
Image

Messed with AWN a bit, I have the "just glass" theme. I got mintmenu in there along with dockbarx... I love it. A great replacement for gnome-panel! Also, I use faenza-dark for the icons and Divergence IV - A New Hope for my gtk theme.

Zengeek I really like what you did with AWN but what do you mean AWN trunk instead of the repo version? And where did you get the AWN trunk version?

Here's mine.. the conky theme I'm using is NightDrive. I haven't got it fully configured yet, it can't get the weather and it doesn't display song info yet.

I normally have anime wallpapers, but this computer I use at school sometimes and don't want to look too geeky XD

I added AWN from the PPA following this tutorial
http://www.webupd8.org/2010/08/avant-wi ... e-ppa.html

When these new packages were installed they all had names that were appended by the '-trunk' suffix. For example 'avant-window-navigator-trunk'

This seems to be a different version to the one in software centre(repo/repository), which I tried, but didn't support multiple docks. I should mention that I'm on main edition, so people with rolling releases might have the new version available ?

first time I did this i tried to learn all the commands and understand the install process. Second time I did it (different system) I just copied and pasted the commands into terminal.

Zengeek, I have to admit, this is one of the greatest Desktops i've ever seen... even when it's gnome and way to colorful for me. :lol:
And yeah your icons seem to be Oxygen.

By The way, what is this black/white thing on the left side of the bottom of your screen?
It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

I don't know...

I get glitches everytime I try to take a screenshot. If there's a window open it draws parts of the window all over the screen. With the windows closed I only got that one small glitch.
But you're very observant for noticing.

The background is pretty colourful, but the layout works just as well with my dark backgrounds.

Thanks for the complements guys...
