well thanks first of all. actually it's pretty easy in LM10 Gnome... go to compiz settings manager, check the opacity, brightness etc, open the settings for it and assign a key or a button to increase or decrease the opacity.

tada

Hey, thanks a lot. I never paid attention to it since it's under the 'Accessibility' settings. Thanks again, now I'm playing with it. :)

Linux Mint 11 dual-screens. They're different resolutions hence the black bar on the bottom right side.

No I didn't. I found the image online. I can't remember where, BUt I'd be happy to send you a copy. Just send me a PM. The image itself is a redo- of one of the stock OSX wall papers, which looks like this:

The colors of the anemone have been replaced with dark purples instead of green. Making the whole thing work better in a darker theme.

I forgot to say it's running it's own custom Compiz Fusion in that screenshot.
This is a custom session that loads my setting directory instead of the default.
Those are system setting and not user settings.
I still have some bugs to fix but it pretty much looks like that after setting up your system.

I didn't do the artwork for this wallpaper (I'm not that good) . . . but, they chose a good subject.

The Conky tells everything about the OS. #!Crunchbang, Xfce-4.8, the Mustang ... everything just "looks fast"

vrkalak, I love it! That looks awesome and the mustang wallpaper is really the icing on the cake! I was looking at conky, like the memory use! I bet that is fast.

I have become a KDE convert now. I love GNOME, but I thought that I might as well try something else now.

KDE is beautiful, customizable and quite snappy on my laptop.

For some reason the contrast on the wallpaper is not good in the preview, but it's a beautiful wallpaper from Kubuntu 6.06 I think
