Desktop Screenshots, Round IV


Recommended Posts

Are uze guyz really serious about staring at the same desktop (wallpaper) image for a WHOLE month, at a time??? Yawn! :devil:I am making this offering to uze guyz for one last time as a salvation: Just install WallPaper Master FREEware in your system and make that monitor work for you more! I use it in the StartUp and change image every 120minutes. I am yet to see it cause problems with the OS!
It does not bother me at all, as I only see it on either start up and /or shutdown or for other short periods of time. I have no need of third party software to change my wallpaper either, it's alright for the new fellers to computing though, who do not know arthur from martha regarding computers... :whistling:

I have eight desktops on my main Linux machine and a different wallpaper on each but I rarely actually see the desktop as it's covered with other projects so wallpaper is not very important to me.

I've had the same plain, green background for over three years now. No icons or shortcuts on it at all. Works well for me and I like it like that.

I'm impressed. And all that with no video card?I haven't attempted much because I don't have too much in the way of video and in fact, SUSE won't even load it just says video not supported.

wow. that cube thing... you can clicky on different sides? on icons on different sides? does a side bring up a desktop?
yes temmu, that is 4 different desktops. i can "grab" it with the mouse and spin it or click the task bar and the cube will spin right to the open window. i actually kind of like using it. there's other window effects but i haven't discovered them yet. you should see the effects with the elive distro, they're pretty neat also.

i tried to install a few different distros today and they won't work. something about no parameters found for X server. it's strange that mdv07 with 3d will work but not slackware, suse, debian. and a couple others.

I like the IceTv guide. I may send that page to a friend so she can download the widget. I think her high speed might be satellite - she's moved from the Blue Mountain area to the back of beyond or as the Aussies say it in the Sydney area, "beyond the black stump".

I won't link my desktop as it is my family from Christmas - brothers, sisters, and their families. However as I was just browsing this month's National Geographic magazine I noticed they had a URL for their site listed with wallpapers available that you can download and install. http://seabed.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/w...&priority=1Is the link for the wallpapers. Here is a link to one of the examples: http://www7.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/070...lgeographic.comThey are all pictures from the current magazine.

cool images, plukaduk, teacher & darkserge!so... i got this two monitor thingy going; it seems if you want to have different images on 2 screens, you have to "tile" an image the size of both screens in order for it to spill over onto the other one.so... i borrowed some frogs from the nat geo site (appologies) and applied them to a rather large piece of black, and came up with... this!froggd3.th.pngpsedited 1/2 a million times to figure out how to encapsulate the thumbnail in the linky thingy.

I can't afford to model in real life but I'm just starting to learn 3D computer modelling so I can design my own trains for MS Train Sim

There are 'dynamic' languages and there are 'dead' languages:The American English is strictly governed by usage. Thus, it is a prime example of a 'dynamic' language that morphs as time passes. {I will spare you any examples}.Then, we have Latin... (QED)Ooops, I almost forgot... Then there is the French Language Police {I refuse to sing a couple of notes}. :P========================I came here mainly to post this link that may be relevant to the subject matter.

hey, i just discovered a new image host from plukaduk's link. looks like a nice one, thanks plukaduk. i gotta be careful or i'll have my entire picture folder uploaded. :w00t: speaking of careful what type of sensitive info should one be careful of revealing? i guess the best way is to not upload anything. i check for email addy, ip addy that might appear in a shot but what about my hostname or anything else?here's my march offering. something tells me i'll be adding to this album, loool.http://server6.theimagehosting.com/image.p...amp;album=24107
