I posted to Google + so I probably should put it here too :)
As usual I think nothing has changed besides the background.

Now that my conversion from a custom Debian stable to SolydX BE on my Raid 0 is complete, I decided to go with an earthy coffee-ish shroom theme, lol, I get bored of the 'typical' somewhat quickly. :mrgreen:

Appearance=Shiki-dust
Icons=Gnome-dust
Window Manager style=Symphony (I like Symphony because it 'absorbs' the colour of the appearance theme, slightly 'glossy' look and modern looking yet not gawdy buttons)

Edit: I couldn't resist, yet another shroom wallpaper...

Here's my current desktop after switching my HP to SolydK BE. I had done this wallpaper years ago (and then altered it to fit 1600 x 900 screen recently). I had done this in KPOV and POVRay. The sky is actually a texture brought in of a photo I took of the sky many years back. Whatever happened to KPOV anyway? Probably obsoleted by Blender, no dobut. :lol: I have to learn Blender better, too. Also the window decoration is "seven" and I think I'm using the Air desktop theme. Anyway, here's the screen shot and the wallpaper for those that want it. If you need a different size, you can always resize it in GIMP.

Y'all are just way over-thinking the whole Desktop thing. For my dual-monitor (each at 1600 x 1200) setup, I kinda like to keep it simple: :lol: :lol: :D :mrgreen:

LOL! Well, that works! :) And for a dual monitor yet! I would have a hard time seeing the desktop icon text though.

I'm really big on eye candy and even change often. I just changed my desktop wallpaper and post-it note color again. LOL!

I don't use the desktop icons. I'm seriously thinking about just turning them all off - I think there's a easy setting in Xfce to do just that. Research!

Found it - that was easy!

I keep a little of everything handy: Desktop Icons for things I need to work on, panels (two now) for what I use most and development. For me, it cuts down repeated click-on-menu-find-the-app-or-type-to-search which takes longer. Then again, I use my computer for a good variety of things.

I knew there was something I needed to do from the forums. I used the Search for Image (By Google) addon for Chrome and found several possibilities. I ended up searching for the image from your image, then did a search for image from one of the visually similar images and found a wallpaper for the image at wallpapermania.eu. It's such a cool wall I'm getting it for my own wallpaper rotation, especially once I get back up and running on SolydK. Thanks for posting your screenie to inspire us.

Sounds cool! And thanks for finding the link. I sometimes go searching for wallpapers and then I never remember where they were from. I agree that particular one is pretty nice!

Hi,

How do you modify top panel icons (NetworkManager icon, Speaker icon, etc) ? Is it in a theme or an icon pack ?

Had a Busy Thurs. Broke down my system as running Hot as we had 95 temps and no air conditioning here.
It was disaster waiting to happen. CPU Heatsink Fins were packed with dust requiring rinsing out. Re-apply thermal paste.
Blew out 3.464 lbs. worth of Dust Bunnies. Installed 1TB drive to replace my old 7 year old 160gb WD drive. Turned it into a secondary Data drive for non-critical files. Restored partitions to new drive had to play with partition tables as already had 3 primary and had to add that free 765mb free space as a ntfs partition alongside my linux partitions in a extended partition.

Now seems system running 8-10c cooler. As idle use to be 47-48c now running 37-39c idle ;)

Almost done. :shock:

Image I clicked was last week of the back of a parked van.

Nice work on everything! :)

Seems everyone is doing computer backups/redoing things. I'm currently doing that on both my computers. HP is done. T61 is slow so I'll be at that the whole weekend, I bet. Adding a few things to the T61 (if it works out) in case I need it.
