Re: July 2008 Desktop Screenshot thread
I think that my desktop is approaching it's state of perfection (as perceived by me and limited by the abilities of myself and the software I use).
The idea of my desktop is similar to the one of urukrama. I use my own Fluxbox theme and a Murrine theme with modified sources, so the window and it's contents blend. When I maximize a window, the toolbar appears over the titlebar of the window and again blend with the content of the window. Also, the toolbar is invisibly shorter on the right side, so I can still click the invisible "x" to close a window.
Fluxbox: Sliver Aurora
Gtk: Murrine Engine with modified source code. The theme itself was Murrine Deviant some time ago.
Icons: My favorite Gnome and Tango icons.
This is how fullscreen looks, kinda like tabs. Here are screenshots of some other programs I have customized at source code level:
You can also see a script I wrote - it checks my gmail account and puts the number of unread emails on the thunderbird icon in the "dock". The date icon in the dock shows the current date.
make install - not war!
