Pretty basic, but I like my desktop this way, the default Mint theme really looks good :)

For some reason I really hate the 9 in that wallpaper. I always hated it, it's just not right. If it were fatter and kinda behind the other letters it'd work but that nine just irks me.

Thank you oscar799 :) , I did not want to over due the purple. I have seen purple over done on a theme and it can be bad. :)

I could not resist here is another screen-shot. I like playing around with customizing my desktop so I change it quite frequently. Pure 100 percent "Isadora" Linuxmint9 :D

Thanks oscar799, I was wondering if it would ever be made sticky. I would think it is the longest running thread that was not sticky. :D

Very nice Celtore, love the conky. :) For an Icon theme check out this link: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... ent=124598
I think it would go well with the darker theme you are using.

I love what you've done with the Conky and the "LM" logo in the middle of the page.
And the wallpaper is fantastic !!

Can I have a 'copy' of this wallpaper (or a link to it) ??

And the "LM" logo at the top of the Conky, too ?
