I don't remember for sure where I got those particular images. I tend to grab images when I stumble upon some good ones, but this site has a great fantazy section: http://www.free-wallpapers.tv/

I usually change the desktop background roughly once month or two. I usually log into fluxbox, rarely ever gnome. So here's my current screenshot, this month I decided on the 2001: A Space Odyssey theme :

Incidentally for those of you not aware of the above image, it's from the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick. The image showed Discovery astronaut Bowman unplugging the circuitry from the heart of HAL 9000 computer, one of the most villainous characters in film history.

HAL 9000: "Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill and think things over."

Last week (now using the astronaut Bowman background in my gdm login screen) :

Yeah, it is a GKrellM process stack. Handily for mounting drives and also to keep an eyes on the CPU & disk usage. I cannot remember where I download the themes from, it may have came from the site in the link below. The GKrellM theme in my screenshot above is called 'Aero'. I also have a plugin called GKrellShoot, it is a small animation window, and you have two buttons - one for taking a screenshot (using imagemagick) and the other is to lock the screen.

You can have many Shelfs and place them at different positions along the top, bottom, left and right sides of your desktop. One thing I like is that you can make your desktop look like OS X, if you so desire.


mmmm


I couldn't install them. deb wont open them
If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it's run over by a car, you don't want it.

LOL!

I somehow thought that your wallpaper looks familiar that I couldn't put my finger on. Now I know after looking at the bottom of the image in the link you posted - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

There are a couple of free wallpapers at these two excellent sites:
http://digitalblasphemy.com/dbhome.shtml
http://www.mikebonnell.com/wallpaper.html

If you google for Insomnia Gallery, you'll find a beautiful site containing B&W fine art erotica photography, there are a few you could grab as a wallpaper.
