What does your desktop look like?

Everything about it! Heard the news? What! is Ubuntu bankrupt? Has Mandriva started marketing? Have you taken a sky diving course?

I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

Nice! Now show me Arch...
I did not know you could do that cylinder thing - I will have to try that.

Oh, I will, no doubt about it.

Yeah, I used to do it all the time in Mandriva - you can check their Show off your desktop thread there for it. It's in CCSM/Effects/Cube Reflection and Deformation. Tell it to ignore conflicts when you do it.

Wow you are great at this. :s I managed to do the cylinder now in Arch. In Mandriva I do not have the option, must lack some installs I guess.
Do you know if we can have a slide show background on Gnome like in KDE? I never can make up my mind anyway :lol:

Thanks! Install the compiz unsupported plugins, that should contain it. IIRC, they should be in plf-free or plf-nonfree.

Compiz-fusion is literally an addiction for me; I love it. It's so versatile in so many ways, and very functional, too.

I have two slideshow backgrounds installed myself in Gnome, so yeah, those should be somewhere there, too. If not, then run a search for backgrounds or themes in your repos (sometimes they come with themes).

I also have the cosmos one installed, but don't see it listed here (or am I just too tired to see it?); I had it installed last I ran Cooker, too.

I went out last night, came home, and the most beautiful screensaver that I'd never seen before was running. I took pics of the screen with my cell phone, but I still have to upload them, and see if they're worth posting. Most from a cell phone aren't (in particular my cheap-arse phones).

Cube cap setting. You have option to point it to the pic you want there. I can't remember offhand where in CCSM it is right now; will have a look through later.

Nah, I just did it up. Desktop Cube-->Appearance tab-->Cube caps

There's also option for yer Skydome there.

Thanks a LOT. It is working. It is fun to play around with this.

Kind of an "Arch side of the moon" background :D

Very, very nice. In particular I like the Arch side of the moon. :) I like the other too, but that first one just ROCKS
