Theming thread?

Edit: I've just posted it in there, I never saw that thread.

Very nice new LMDE wallpaper . . . :P
Love the Mint theme, font, reflection and the white-space

Leaves plenty of white-space on the left-side to put my Conky. I can see it working.
By the way ... which 'font' is that? I want my Conky to match.

I'll post a screenshot, once I get it finished.

I LOVE that 3d wallpaper with the debian symbol in green, but very reflective. Great job...one of the best I've seen that are distro specific and elegant.

Cheers for the link, I'll check it out and probably have a go. I'll probably have another mess around in blender too, try to understand it a little better and maybe make another wall based on the same 'theme'. Thanks for the comments as well :)

The LMDE 3D Wallpaper is about the most professional looking I have ever seen for any Mint Version.

Fantastic work.
Thanks.

I also wanted to chime in with thanks and congratulations for the 3D version of this wallpaper. It looks stupendous on my E17 desktop using the Black Diamond E17 theme (with the background changed to LMDE_SIMPLIXCITY_3D, of course), the Black Diamond GTK2 theme (slightly edited to make the window background a matching green instead of white), the LaGaDesk-BlackWhite-III iconset, and Gruppled Cursors.

Here's how it looks in action:

I have never been so in love with a branded wallpaper! And I have you to thank, so.... THANK YOU!!!

Gorgeous wall. It makes me wish it were available in Mint KDE blue.
