Nice setup!! You gotta switch Brasero out for gnomebaker though. Brasero makes too many coasters! I also prefer Audacious to Banshee, if you haven't tried it!

Here's my take on a Unity-like desktop that works for me. My sandbox partition has Mint 9 Xfce with Xfce 4.8. My laptop has a high resolution wide screen, so the vertical arrangement is a good use of space, but I don't like how Unity makes you have to do extra clicks or type in a search to get to the application you want - the Application Menu and Program Launchers in Xfce are fine for me. The large icons are launchers for my most frequently used apps (a pseudo-dock) and the smaller icons below those are the running aps in the task manager. Xfce 4.8 places shortcuts for my partitions on the desktop.

My fedora 15 with gnome 3 fallback mode. You can barely realize that it is gnome 3 and not gnome 2.

Reminder from the Forum Staff:

Please continue to use clickable-thumbnails linking to the larger image -- to help those with slower connections.

An example of the BBC code needed is below. Most image hosting sites will automatically generate 'clickable-thumbnails' for you, as well.

Code: Select all

Thanks you for your continued support of LinuxMint.

I am un-familiar with LXDE but am interested in learning. I just can't see the utility of the desktop you show.

For example, I am sure you need to see your network status without opening the system monitor. You must need the date and a calendar? How do you access the long lost programs that you know you installed six months ago, and now need to find again? Maybe these are all right click item's?

Where does your update icon or dropbox icon display? How do you switch virtual desktops when you want to push one window out of the way?

I know you are an experienced user, so I expect you will have answers to my questions, but I think they still need asking.

Is this a real working desktop with all that you need for everyday work?

To answer your last question first, yes it is. As far as most of the other items, my panel is at the top and is set to autohide. It has the usual time/date/calendar, network icon, volume control, Mint Update icon, and Menu bar. Most apps I use are on the Awn Dock.

@Garvan: it looks like he's using a mainly terminal-controlled system so he doesn't need those things.. maybe he's using a *Box-like rightclick-menu either, like it's standard at openbox and fluxbox (f.e.).
example: http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/7300/blank1.jpg
i've posted this screens some sites ago... and still using it (on my notebook)

Short info for the guys who posted screens for my vid (marc, lou and mintmaniac): i'm about ~40% for now, i've gotta lot of work the last few days, therefore i couldn't really work on this, but I do so when i've got a bit more time.
It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

Thanks. Without the top panel - which is hidden - the desktop looks almost unusable, so I hope you will understand why I asked.

Nice! I like the color and it just looks interesting. I looked at Peppermint Two myself a week or so ago and it's very nice. :D
