I like mine better than the default. Sunrise photo I took at Ninh Phuoc beach, Vietnam a few years ago.

Looks nice but you may want to change how your images are posted since your thumbnail doesn't open right. Next time, either click the image button on the editing bar and enter the url in the dialog or do it like this (minus the spacing)

Then you'll end up with this and you can click it to enlarge.

My apologies, I intentionally used just a thumbnail, followed by a link to the full size image, but I can change that no problem.

As it happens, I have an excuse to do so right now, because I just started using Deepin DE...

Not exactly as customisable as I'm used to, (it looks pretty much like Windows 8 or OS.X, depending on which panel mode you choose) but I'll stick with it for a while. Might yield some interesting secrets...

It's worth looking to see how crisp and clear everything looks (the compression in the 2 above blurs them a bit). I'm still amazed every time I look at it. ;) B)

I took the picture of those big floating clouds in that beautiful blue sky back in February of 2012 with my little Sony camera that my brother had just bought me for Christmas a couple months before. I'm sitting in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facility parking lot that use to be a dairy farm when I was a kid and later became the Tampa Bay Center Mall that was demolished to make the parking lot and the training facility. I'm facing north and that shot is over a business park that used to be a golf course called Loch Raven when I was a kid. Here's a satellite view (thanks to Google) of just where I'm talking about...

Oi if your going to post such pin sharp pictures could you please post with a warning. I nearly burnt me eyeballs out that picture is so sharp, seeing the real thing must be fab. :worthy:

 

So here is my Dell 4700 (special reserve rescue

pc) running on a ten year old 17" flat screen with MX-15.

Looks nice but why the gigantic panel icons on the right that takes up a lot of the resolution?

I'm an old git with failing eyesight :Laughing: They auto hide so large icons are no hindrance.

After a little partitioning accident (removing the first partition of my hard drive with cfdisk, then being unable to manually create a properly aligned one), I was forced to use some form of auto partition to fix the problem. Sadly, all of my iso's are stored on a portable hard drive that I need my computer to access, so I ended up having to use an Ubuntu disc that happened to be lying around. Anyway, here is my temporary desktop...

:'( ... I'm disappointed with... well, myself mostly. I shouldn't have just fired ahead like that. My end result was supposed to be Arch dual booted with Slackware. I suppose I'll just have to wait until I have access to a good enough Internet connection to install Arch on my now stable first partition, besides, "no panic, no picnic", am I right?

Well really you didn't have to install anything to partition the disk as you could of simply booted up Gparted via usb or disc. Basically you would boot gparted live and then start gparted. From there, you could set up your partitions. Then simply boot into Archlinux to install it or perhaps install Slackware first. Either way, you would of saved some time and not had to install a distro to autocreate a partition table.

Also, I know it doesn't help now but gparted is available on any distro and makes it easy to resize partitions (even automatic if you chose).

Thank you. I am aware that there would have been many solutions to the problem, but I sort of panicked at the prospect of not having my laptop anymore, and that made me rush into the first possible solution that presented itself. Thinking back now, It would have been sufficient to remove the defective partition, then automatically partition the available space, which is pretty much your suggestion.

Anyway, not much was lost, just a couple of downloaded movies. I had all of my work backed up in anticipation that something could go wrong. Anyway, The university where I study has reasonable Wi-fi, and I should have time to set up Arch again on Monday. Ubuntu will do until then.

(Just to clarify my situation, I live out in the country surrounded by hills and trees, and use mobile broadband that's limited, and roughly equivalent to sticking your finger in the Ethernet port while wearing a tin-foil hat if you need large downloads.)

Back in my comfort zone after 4 days of Ubuntu's Unity....

That's Gnome on ArchLinux as a primary, and XFCE on Slackware, should anything go wrong on the other side of things.
