Here is my current desktop.

What about this one:

Mr Jack-of-all-trades, i really dont know Russian and how to pronounce your name.
But here goes:
Thank You for your conky code.:angel:
Here is my screenie.

In my eyes Netrunner is reincarnation of Mandrake Linux. Same soul different bodies.

Pamtux, you have created some of the most beautiful and awesome desktops I have ever seen! I would love to duplicate these if you would be kind enough to tell us which themes, icons, conkys, desklets, screenlets, etc. you are using and where they can be found. I would be very grateful for any information you could provide.

Hey sekter7, no prob mate …here goes…
The tron like theme that im using is β€˜ghost’. Click on get new them in dekstop theme and search for it and install its straightforward.
im not using conky. i dont have time to play anymore with lua and the .conkyrc. SO now i use gkrellm. The bar that monitors everything on the right is gkrellm. Its available in the repos, install it directly. The diferent themes are here:
The icons are also directly available and can be installed, its called β€˜iceglass’.
There are no screenlets, desklets etc. Its called widgets and can be controlled from your desktop…
Cheers mate.:smiley:


Great, pamtux, thanks very much for the very helpful information! I was able to find and install all of the Ghost themes (plasma, windows border, colors, etc.). I got the icon theme and will be adding the Ghost widgets when I have the time.

Gkrellm - Wow! I forgot all about it. I played around with it a couple of years ago. I’ll be taking another look at it. I like what I see.

Just one thing I haven’t been able to find and that’s your wallpaper. It’s a perfect match for the Ghost theme. Can you let me know where I can find it?

Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:

No idea where i got those walls! just a random pic from google search.
Neways there are much better walls…

Here are some walls i made at kde-looks:

Wow - thanks for your response and the links for these awesome wallpapers, pamtux! I did some Internet searching myself but couldn’t find any as good as these. This now completes my awesome desktop! :slight_smile:

This is my KDE. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.



Here is my desktop, nothing special. My own wallpaper and some plasmas.

I’m very minimalist and use krunner for everything. I have both my monitors set on a slideshow of science fiction, fantasy, and astronomy images, changing every 5 minutes.


jpg or png?

Thanks for the Conky setup information, I am currently working it into my laptop and love what I have got working so far.

I downloaded Ksnapshot and got it in .png. Here is my desktop attached.

The mine is very simple, with a mixture of ROSA icons and MAC:

Lo mio es muy sencillo, con una mezcla de iconos ROSA y MAC:
