What does your desktop look like?

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

My desktop is here. It's actually twice that size, but the second monitor (to the right of that one) is the exact same minus panels, so I cut it out.

@sinical: happy now? :P

I wasn't going to post mine as I've only been running Deb for a month for the second time in 9 years but when I walked in and looked at my desktop this morning I thought it was one of the nicest things I have seen on a computer in a loooong time. I have been waiting 9 years to have enough time and for the distros (Deb and a wm, KDE in this case) to be mature enough to be an easy (somewhat) install. Finally! And to be honest I did not expect to succeed with a Dell laptop. A very pleasant suprise.

My Gnome desktop on Debian Lenny (click for full size):

Image

The panels are a bit different from default Gnome settings, because I like the notification area at the bottom.

Icon pack: Tango
Gnome theme: Murrina Kent
Metacity theme: Human-Squared
Wallpaper: can be found at http://interfacelift.com

How did you get Avant to compile? I've never had any luck getting it to work (Running Lenny).

I'm using Etch I had to install these: apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libwnck-dev libwnck-common libgconf2-dev libglib2.0-dev gnome-common libgnome2-dev libgnome-desktop-2 libgnome-desktop-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev

Then I did a ./autogen.sh, then make, and then make install.

gnome - extra lite :)
Image

Remove applets,systray, clock. Kill off gnome-startup splash screen. Turn off previews,counts,and so forth in nautilus.Dont let nautilus manage the desktop. Kill off nautilus sidepane, statusbar, and toolbar. Use nautilus GO menu to switch to network and so forth.
Dont install the meta packages or even gnome-core just gnome-panel,metacity, nautilus, and other gnome stuff you want for functionality.
I use alt+tab to switch apps I have open as you can see - switcher in the middle of the screen. Along with a couple desktops to organize apps. *Thinking about using auto-rollup along with it....still considering that*
gnome-panel used as strictly a launcher
xpad - sticky note thingy
do more with less is my motto! :)
Thats about it....

edited - to explain what changes I made :D

I'm lazy, so here's screenshot of my current obsession:

Evilwm.

1. apt-get install evilwm gmrun
2. edit ~/.xinitrc (or ~/.xsession), to add background using feh, and keybind using xbindkeys.

gmrun - a nice application launcher (see the screenshot) where you enter commands and it has "bash-like" completion with auto-pull down menu. Bind it to a key using xbindkeys.
