    My desktop is pretty bland compared to the latest uploads! Only real tweak is the top panel transparency

    Re: Show off your Desktop

    No sorry I don't know what conky is I just started using Ubuntu about 3 months ago.. I been using Windows for the past 18 years I like Ubuntu a lot but really don't like the desktop all that much so I did a lot of reading about tweaking things installing Gnome. using Cairo dock that kind of stuff changing things up a bit.. I'm not a pro on Linux by any means but not a novice computer user ether.. I was always good a tweaking windows, making windows Icon sets themes and things like that so I thought I’d try my hand at making something on Ubuntu .. Rainmeter oh Yah open source program it displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts mostly skins that are some what functional..
    record your notes and to-do lists, launch your applications, and control media player - pretty clean non obstructive interfaces . I'll have to do some reading about Conky and how to implement that into some kind of them i build It looks really cool.. Thanks for the info N00b-un-2 I’ll do some reading on it..

    Re: Show off your Desktop

    Changed my desktop around drastically yesterday.
    ----------------------------------------------
    DE: GNOME Shell.
    Theme: GNOMish Dark(although it was still on Ambiance at the time of the snapshot).
    Icon theme: GNOME, I think(although it was on the Unity icon theme at the time of the snapshot).
    Extensions: Dash-in-Dock and Quicklists, and I added the extension that puts the Trash in the Panel, along with a Removable Device menu last night.
    Wallpaper: http://dfx4509b.deviantart.com/art/PST-008-361120645
    ----------------------------------------------
    And just a little tidbit, Ash Ketchum's just the alias I log into Ubuntu with, not my name.
    ----------------------------------------------
    Reason for the switch to GS: a tad quicker than Unity on my hardware, along with being roomier for such apps as GIMP, Inkscape, Pinta, or Synfig, along with Chromium or Firefox, Launcher is a nice feature in Unity, but it tends to get in the way, especially on a 15" 4x3 LCD monitor, and this is coming from a guy who likes Unity. Also, with a few extensions, GS is about as easy to use as Unity, pretty much, but hey, can't knock Unity too hard as it's still in its infancy, pretty much.

    Re: Show off your Desktop

    This is my desktop using the conky script
    1st screenshot has full desktop with banshee playing and 2nd screen shot has the application "drawers" running showing all my custom made icons for games that i can go back to different systems using a back button and all run from command line. I have set up a program called "easystroke Gesture Recognition" to use my middle mouse to show these menus when pressed
    I like it
