While I am not as artistically gifted as mmesantos1, here's my latest "aha" moment. A transparent gnome-panel! It's a big deal to me. :)

Habitual,
You did well - a lot of people struggle to get a transparent Gnome panel 8)

recently hooked up my laptop to a 42'' HD LED TV via HDMI - just using it to watch movies n stuff (tried to do some actual work on that screen but heck, that was just a laughable attempt really...)

nope it isn't cairo-dock...this one's AWN (avant window navigator). using the testing version and the "theme" is called lucido.

however, if by "taskbar" you mean gnome panel, i made it transparent and disappear cause i don't use it

Cheers

CaptHilts:

That AWN theme rocks.
Too back I have do dig around the net to get it working over here on OpenSUSE.

Gives me something to do.
For the time being, I have YetAnotherWingPanel theme installed. It's close.

Searching for source code to build it. Also the OSuse version doesn't have an Indicator Applet. Darn!!!

@Habitual

yep, it's a great theme - haven't changed in almost two months, really found my thing here.
Well, using mint it's a breeze in getting it to work, just using AWN testing PPA instead of the stable one and the rest is a matter of configuration under preferences.

I plan on switching to Arch on my main computer some time in the beginning of this summer, hopefully with AWN lucido :D

Grabbing "something" using Bazaar (brz) now... This should be a treat. :)

Hmmz. Looks like source code. Now I work!
