I don't want to seem intrusive/prying or anything; I just thought it would be an interesting idea. Post if you have something cool you'd like to show off.

I'll start.

I don't have a background at the moment (My desktop is messy enough as it is XD), but I usually just have a nice, simple background of stars, like this one from the end of QFG2.

That's cool. I sometimes just take a high quality picture whose colors I like and pixelize it so that it consists of 1 inch squares. There's definitely some charm to pixel-y images. For example, I made this one:

The background on my desktop is the same as Doon's, but my laptop has this.

My desktop I keep completely clean of icons (even edited the Recyle bin so it won't show) but my laptop is sadly not kept to the same standard.

Mine is the background Doon made from the background at the PO Studios home page (the trees with the colored lines & lights). At work it's the overview image of the Isle of the Crown.

Right now, I have a simple Harry Potter background I drew when I was experimenting with my tablet.  It matches the rest of the theme I have.

Yup, it's from the floppy version; I just thought the sunset looked particularly beautiful on it (that, and it gave me enough black space to put icons for all of my adventure games!):

Linux Mint, based on Ubuntu!

http://www.linuxmint.com/

I've been using it for a little more than a year. I'm actually a Linux newbie  :P  I'm still learning the basics, so Windows is for gaming, everything else is with Linux. Didn't have much luck with Wine, maybe if I give it more time. What's your distro?

Ahh... mint.

I use arch every day, all day, for everything.

A little more advanced and hard to use, but also simpler code and programming wise.  it runs really efficiently and has really good repos and the best package manager ever made (pacman).

Did you ever post in my Linux thread?  the compatibility with wine thing?  post your computer specs, error messages, approach to getting it to work, wine version, hair color, etc in my thread and I will try to help you.
Title: Re: Post your wallpaper
Post by: Ravager on September 20, 2010, 04:05:25 PM
Arch Linux. I'm probably going to out of my league if I ever try this! I barely use the terminal!

I just read your Linux thread. Sure! I'll give TSL a try someday and give you the results. It will be nice to contribute to Wine HQ App DB... For course, I have to finished TSL:EP2 first ;)

I heart the terminal.

guis are such a waste of time once you get used to typing simple commands to do everything.

after you try it, post in my thread.  for me, it works perfect as far as I can tell. (after  installing wine 1.3.2, winetricks, and installing msi2 and dotnet20 through winetricks)

if you don't know how to do all that, let me know in my thread and I will sum it up in a more noob friendly way.

I'm using Gnome, probably 'cause it comes with Linux Mint by default. I haven't tried LXDE, but I might consider installing it on my old P3. Either that or Xfce. Or Fluxbox. I haven't decided which.

Title: Re: Post your wallpaper
Post by: atec123 on September 23, 2010, 08:08:29 PM
nice features, but bloated and not well executed.

Unless that has changed in the last few versions.  the arch distro of gnome is my favorite.  stock, xfce is my favorite.

if you go really minimal, I like JWM/joes window manager.  or eJWM:

Uh- I regularly purge my desktop cause it gets over loaded with images so that was it on a REALLY good day. Right now, my desktop is 50% full of art files >.>

Godot is VERY hot ;) I like his.... spoiler self SLIGHTLY better, but here's his in game animations (http://www.court-records.net/animation/aa-godot.htm). He's suave, and drinks coffee, and is a complete smooth talker... and he calls girls Kitten *u* *turns into a pile of goo* Um... if you don't mind a spoiler for the game, this is the version of him I like the most ;) (http://www.court-records.net/animation/aa-armando.htm) the main character of the game Phoenix Wright (http://www.court-records.net/animation/aa-phoenix.htm) is my second favourite.

Of course not! If I had wanted to rub it in, I would have used a :suffer:!
Touche, compadre. Touche. :)

Your wallpaper IS fun, though, Snabbott. :yes: I love that picture of Graham--it's so glaringly obvious that he was modeled after Harrison Ford in that pic. :smitten:

And atec, why is nothing on your desktop?!

I change my wallpaper usually with the seasons. Right now this is my wallpaper.

Interesting. I prefer that model of Rosella to the current one.

why is something on your desktop?

I am not a big desktop icon fan.  On linux I don't have any either.  On windows I have the start menu that has all the programs I need and openoffice and chromium are down there on the quick launch and those are what I use mostly on windows anyway. (and itunes but that opens when I plug my ipod in and thats the only time I ever use it.  plus its in the start menu.

it looks so much fresher without icons, imo.

That it does, my friend, that it does.  I was just concerned  because you said you rarely use that computer, I thought you had nothing loaded onto it. :)

Mean Windows trick (particularly for an inexperienced computer user):
Take a screen shot of the desktop (with icons) and make it the desktop background.
Hide the icons from the desktop.

Lol, when I first discovered screenshots on Windows, I iteratively repeated that process and created lots and lots of decoy icons. You can do the same thing with iOS devices now by pressing power and home and the same time.

on my old windows install I did exactly that.  I had like 3 icons, but most of them were fake and the screen was filled with them.  mostly just to mess with others who use my computer.

I command thee, ancient thread, RISE! *Waves magic wand*

Just felt like bringing back an oldie but goodie.  I've been AWOL for the last few months, so let's reconnect, shall we?  Here's my latest:

That's me and my godson Carson on our second meeting.  It was the first time he actually looked at me, so my face is saying, "GAAAAAAH! He's looking at me!! He acknowledges my presence!! He's brilliant!! I'm so glad I wasn't awake at two a.m. watching the royal wedding, or else I'd have missed this!!" :smitten: I'm so in love with that kid.

Tag, you're it!
