Love the Plasmoids on your GNOME3 desk. I didn't know the combination was even possible.
Thank you! When I saw the article I immediately got a flash in my head: Usability of LM12 + the beauty of gnome-shell + kde widgets on my desktop = love at first sight :D
I've now added the digital clock to the desktop. Digital clock widget, CWP widget, custom conky made by me on the bottom, carefully chosen wallpaper to fit them all... PERFECTION ! (in my eyes at least :P)

Here is an interesting thing that I discovered about the mgse menu:
You can edit the picture and text by opening a terminal and typing

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/menu@linuxmint.com/extenion.js
Then change

Code: Select all

let icon_file = icon_path + "menu.png";
on line 264 to

Code: Select all

let icon_file = icon_path + "menu.svg";
to get the linux mint logo and change

Code: Select all

this._label.set_text(_("Menu"));
on line 279 to

Code: Select all

this._label.set_text(_(""));
to get rid of the text (you can insert any text you want int the quotation marks)
Finally, I would suggest copying the extension before you modify it and then renaming it in the metadata.json file from

Code: Select all

{
"uuid": "menu@linuxmint.com",
"name": "Menu",
"description": "An advanced Gnome Shell Menu",
"shell-version": [ "3.2" ],
"localedir": "/usr/local/share/locale",
"url": "http://github.com/linuxmint/mgse-menu"
}
to (for my example)

Code: Select all

{
"uuid": "menuimproved@linuxmint.com",
"name": "Menu Improved",
"description": "An advanced Gnome Shell Menu",
"shell-version": [ "3.2" ],
"localedir": "/usr/local/share/locale",
"url": "http://github.com/linuxmint/mgse-menu"
}
Enable menu improved in gnome-tweak tool and it comes up like this:

I'm trying to emulate certain elements of your theme, but I'm having difficulties doing so. First off, how did you get your Dropbox icon to remain blue? Secondly, how did you get the transparent top bar like that? So far I have the following:

It's no problem. As a KDE user I find myself leaning a lot towards blue, plus I'm a Dodger fan so Dodger Blue is my favorite color anyway.

It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

@ rautatea

Great screenshot ... nice color schemes. (I had to adjust your links BBC Codes to make it show in this thread)

Love that wallpaper.

And yes, it is posted in the correct place. :)

Lol, I like how it's zoomed in to the "I don't do Windows" section. That is a nice, interesting Desktop!

Here is the link for conky. There is no conkyrc file. You must copy all files (they are invisible) in your home folder and add .conky_start.sh to startup.
There is a .Conky/imgx folder (currently useless) that you can use if you want to add images at the start of each line (an +images version of this conky will be available soon, i'm working on it).
In .bin/conky you must edit the gmail.py file and add your email's username and password

Code: Select all

username="-->username<--"
password="-->password<--"
Example:

Code: Select all

username="myusername"
password="mypassword"
^keep the quotes

Good luck!

As promised I tuned my conky with images and this is how it looks (yes, it is Zorin OS 5.2, but it is conky we are talking about):

If you like it get it HERE. Instructions are in the post above.
