Nice, Zwopper. Just saw your other post for the new wallpaper and grabbed it. :twisted:
At first glance I didn't think much of it, then I looked more closely and started seeing all the elements incorporated into it that you don't see by looking at it "from a distance".

My latest Debian 7 Wheezy with Fluxbox WM.

A basic fb-style I found; then, heavily modified by me. ... I changed everything. :P

I tried to make everything (background, menu, fb-panel, conky, terminal, window-theme) to match in style and color.

First off, your 'image' did not work ... you need to upload the image to an Image-Host.
Such as ImageBam.com or ImageVenue.com ... there are many image-host sites to choose from.

Secondly, Twitter is not one of them ... with Twitter, like Facebook, you have to be a member to view the images posted there.
Many of us are not members of either.

You can access the Twitter pics as a non-Twitter user.
Vishnuprasad, once you are viewing the image - right-click it and copy the image location. From that address you can link the image in the thread. (I took the liberty of fixing your img link).

Thank you for the fix, proxima_centauri. I'll keep this in mind next time. The reason I used a twitter link is that I was having some connectivity issues here at that time and my bandwidth was in the tank; many of the sites were not loading. And vrkalak, why are you being arrogant? I stated I'm a newbie didn't I?

My Asus EeePC 1005PEB, running Linux Mint 11 with Mac4Lin theming for the Gnome desktop. I used to run LM KDE and, living here in Alaska, really liked the "Aurora" wallpaper. So, with thanks (and apologies) to Zwopper for his LM button, here she is:

Sorry about the mix-up(s!) with the previous post. Anyway, here's the latest; the idea was to have a desktop setup which in theory could've been the default design, rather than a complete re-invention.

For the wallpaper, Zwopper delivers the goods as always. The more I view this one, the more I like it, rather than eventually being fatigued.

Hello, started using LMDE a couple months ago, thought I should join this forum. Well here's what I've done with it so far.

Sure thing. (Jeeze, the hoops one has to jump through to get an attachment uploaded... Really, .css and .txt aren't allowed and I have to zip archive it..?)
gnome-shell.css.zip
Zukitwo gnome-shell.css (GNOME 3.2 modified)

The modifications I made were basically borrowed from the default Adwaita theme, tweaked to properly fit Zukitwo, but they're probably not perfect and may not reflect what the theme author will do when he/she gets around to updating the theme for GNOME 3.2

No problem.

I think there might actually be a couple other modifications I made in there regarding font and size (I prefer Droid Sans 10 to fit the rest of my font preferences, the default is Trebuchet MS 8 ) but those changes are easily undone... Everything else (aside from the mods made to make it work nicely with 3.2) should still be default.
