People say I am a bit nuts. Can't see where they get that idea from LOL.

I think you are referring to neofetch if you mean the terminal window with the mint logo in ascii code next to system details. otherwise the desktop overlay is called conky

Nice to have another join the fold! Unlike many, I have no issues with Windows, personally (my main desktop PC runs Win10), but I've had Mint on my laptop since 2012 and I have MX Linux on my other mini laptop. It's just fun to tinker with it!

Check out Cool Retro Term if you want a cool-looking Terminal as well! :D

That's cool. I done migrated =) This is my only system, at this moment, anyway. Actually gonna get a pc, but we're talking NUCbox.

Tinker is right! :lol: I'm looking at ranging from Arch to networking in arduinos and Pis...robitics... As for old school, probably stick to my humble beginnings and do a DOS 6.22 box...network that in too. =)

Haha, nice! This is a great forum....ask away whenever you have questions or need help! :P

Here's my current desktop setup to stay on topic! I run a customized version of the 'Minimalis' theme in Conky, with a nice setup of Cairo Dock at the far right :)

Nice. Happy to be here. Oh yea, I imagine I'll have a lot questions, once I'm competent enough to know what to ask. lol

Ok, so the overlay is way cool. Took me a minute, but happy to report I know just enough to get Conky mostly running and tweaked to my taste a little. Seeing my CPU run at 32 deg F though? :lol: and I have dropped fields... Meh. Imagine I'll be better equipped to deal with that soon.
Thanks to "justLearning2" and their used to be "4k Orange Conky config" skin.

So this is my desktop.

Image

Not very different from the Mint default.
I tried some docks but decided I like the standard panel better. Only tweaks I did were regarding the panel elements and panel transparency, and mouse cursors.
Not very flashy but I like it this way.
Running Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon on an HP Envy laptop with i5-6200U processor and a mere 4GB RAM.

Very nice - clean and simple.
This is why I really enjoy this thread - everyone has different tastes and creative ideas.
I cannot find the screen shot I made of a Cinnamon desktop I made that looked as if there was no panel at all, no desklets nothing - just the background. It was interesting and did work but not very practical.

That looks handy but unfortunately BBC weather services are fairly rubbish at the moment, there's even missing information for locations in the United Kingdom. They changed to a different Weather forecasting provider because they put their services out to tender and some Spanish Company undercut what the Met Office wanted. Since then both their TV forecasts and online services have been way off. I rely on ITN (they do news and weather for ITV/Channel 4 and Channel 5) instead which still uses the Met Office and is far more accurate on the whole. I'd suggest you use a provider stateside if it's available in the Widget options like weather underground (wunderground). Sadly the Met Office isn't or I'd use the widget again. As it stands I can get a more accurate forecast than the BBC provide with a generic Chinese made electronic weather station with wireless outdoor sensors bought off amazon.

EDIT - Making Mint Pop! (well use it's font styles anyway because they are easy on the eye)

Image

I don't recommend trying the PPA method to install the fonts unless you ONLY install the font package and then remove the PPA straight away. Reason being, if you leave it enabled Mint Update will want to update all manner of core packages including the flatpak framework, kernel, graphics stack and systemd.

I wrote my own weather conky parsing data from the met office.

and an arduino (actually an ESP8266) based 'weather station'. Think the humidity sensor is broke, sensor fell off its fitting and filled with water :(

Kudos, it looks much better too. I have a friend who lives in Devices, it's always an interesting experience driving down roads with signs warning of tanks crossing to get to it. The sensor may recover, give it time.

I don't know where the BBC gets it's USA weather but it has been "close enough." Yeah, they predicted 68F the other day and it got up to 70F, so . . . . . . I don't measure wind speed but windy vs not windy works for us. They are actually very good at predicating "sunny" vs "cloudy" vs "partly cloudy" - I like that. I suppose our local weather is rubbish as well as the BBC is no worse than what we get from the newspaper or TV.
