Just installed xfce, it's really nice:
Anyways, lets get back to the beauty of Linux desktops.
And regarding the pony thing - it's his customization of his desktop. I only dislike the whole pony thing when it's in every nook and cranny of the internet and is irrelevant. His is relevant, so it's not really an issue.
I just started out, so this is nothing special yet;
Nothing impressive at the moment, just the essential totoro wallpaper.
As a KDE user, I will say that the default KDE looks nothing like that.
New to ubuntu, how do I make it look snazzy like you guys? So far I've just been tinkering with the basic options.
You can install Openbox in Ubuntu no problem.
I don't like the notion that in order to customize your WM you have to use Arch or Gentoo. I used Gentoo for like two years and I used KDE. I did more under the hood customization rather than the UI.
How to get a great Linux Desktop:
- Emerald Theme Engine for GNOME environments. (Make sure to get some matching GTK.)
- Mess with Compiz.
- Conky + Start messing with some .conkyrc files you find on the internet with the help of google.
You don't need a specific distribution.
- Awesome with a cool theme
It's all up to each and his own what makes a good Linux desktop. There's no 'definition'.
Whoa cool. I just discovered compiz; it's mainly eyecandy, but the customization is really nice.
-snip flash is bugging out and flashing green im stupid.-
Yeah I'm really new; seeing creative stuff like this makes me love Linux even more. There's no way something like that can work well on windows.
this looks so weird to me
You know, every day moving back and forth between Unity and GNOME 3 is a day I appreciate Unity more. I appreciated GNOME 2's intuitive nature, and 3 doesn't seem to hang on to that...Unity, on the other hand, manages to keep a lot of that GNOME 2 aesthetic while presenting us with the slickest program dock I've yet seen, even over OSX. It's simple, and works. Also, Windows key + typing to search programs is such an under-appreciated piece of functionality, I'm glad it made its way to Ubuntu.
Nice THC molecule.
Glad you like it.
