What does your desktop look like?

If it doesn't relate to Debian, but you still want to share it, please do it here

Nice, but have you heard of thumb nails ? They make it nicer.
Please learn to thumbnail images
It is not just you, there are several others that just refuse to use thumb nails, ..... and it is not that difficult.

I made this just fooling around, Debian 7 on a VM hosted by Openbsd,
Image
Used : https://ezgif.com/resize to resize it.

A script that makes creating a thumbnail easier:
Code: Select all
for file in *png; do
    new_file=`echo $file | sed 's/.png$//'`
    convert -resize 25% $file $new_file-tmb.png
    #jpegoptim ... $new_file-tmb.png
#mv *.JPG-tmb.jpg tmb
scp *.png me@mystoragesite.org:/var/www/htdocs/images
put *.png
done
Easy to modify, to resize jpg or other formats, also, to change where it uploads to and how.

Some one might say, but that is not a Desktop, yes it is, my desktop is usually
a open terminal or several, sometimes a file manager as well, to help make it easier / faster , finding files,etc. The pretty background,/wall paper when I am not doing anything, (not seen above) serves no purpose, and is rarely seen.

Hmm I didn't notice that. Maybe some kind of hipster* photo filter effect.

And I should make a correction, that building is, more accurately, the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale.

Great place - though very stuffy and quiet. Great if you want to get away from it all inside some art-deco 1930s shrine to vintage academia.

*I was actually given a warning for using the word 'hipster' on the Ubuntu forums. There was no negative or disparaging context, they merely objected to the use of the word in any context.

Debian Jessie, twm, staloneonetray, yad

I like twm tabs for titlebars as even when a window is maximised there's still some desktop space to the right of the tab to left or right click on (my left click shows the twm menu, right click brings up the volume control (yad script), iconmanager (I don't use icons) and stalonetray (that I load osmo, libre, radiotray and my own yad menu in which I include less often used programs so that the twm main menu (left click of desktop) doesn't become overweight)

i know, right?
i once got an infraction (posts on hold to be moderated, for a week or so) for using LMGTFY.
it's their bleeding code of conduct again, and "the customer is always right".

I have been using stumpwm for a week now after using Ratpoison. To say the least I am very happy with my stumpwm. It gives me complete control over my desktop. I never got used to the layout management in awesome/xmonad as it always moved my windows around for me.
