My Favorite Desktop

I've had this desktop or a variation of it for a while. The artwork is produced by my wife. The fairies circling the moon are icons provided by Desklaunch. This rarely encountered tool allows you to place images of any size anywhere on the desktop and they are clickable. This is Fluxbox on 64-bit Slack.

Trying out i3 Window Manager. Pretty cool so far, still need some more config hacking.

To easy

Its so easy... I doubt I will recommend Slackware to people looking for a more challenging distro as all the scripts has even gotten me running KDE 4.6.4, LibreOffice and a whole lot more

My "dumbed-down" Joe-Sixpack-friendly KDE desktop:

http://www.microlinux.fr/images/slackware.png

I've rebuilt the whole KDE desktop (which is not a great deal, what with sources and build scripts available) on a one-simple-app-per-task basis. I've also fiddled with the menu entries, reorganized some categories and replaced some missing translations.

I plan to use this desktop as default install for my clients, and also for myself. (Eat your own dog food).

I'll say!

trademark91, have you made this Fluxbox theme available on Box-look.org or DeviantArt, or anywhere else? Would you consider it? Pretty please?

I suppose. I'm not at that machine but if you are so inclined, check tomorrow after noon CST and this post will have a link to theme, wallpaper, and such. I'll tarball and release it properly. If anyone sees a theme that they want me to package for them, just pm me and I'll see what I can do.

I'm honored that you guys like my work.

EDIT: heres the theme package. i use the Dyne-Dark gtk theme for my windows.

Hi Trademark!
I really love your work with desktops. They are really beautiful. There's one thing I want to ask you: where did you learn how to make these masterpieces? Is there on the web some sort of tutorial or guide to make something similar for my desktop? Please consider that I'm a total newbie.

Thank you very much!

Sorry, but there is no tutorial to making nice desktops that I've seen, I've just always been a tweaker.

Typically when I make a desktop, I'll first pick the color of the theme. To all my themes there is a specific color set, always there is one color (eg red, blue, etc) and a theme style (light or dark). What I do when make a new theme is I'll pick a temporary wallpaper that is the right color for what I chose, then match my window interiors/borders to the style and wallpaper. My conky scripts I write myself for every new theme I make.

Once I've matched my windows, borders, and conky to the color and style of the new theme, I pick a new wallpaper (the new theme almost always morphs into something new while I'm working on it, and the new wallpaper is key to tying everything together). A good wallpaper folder is really important to getting everything to look nicely, my wallpaper folder is just over 12gb. After I get my final wallpaper, window theme, conky, etc, the last thing that I do is edit individual pieces of the separate theme sections in photoshop/gimp/fireworks to make sure that there are no parts of the theme that do not fit well together (for example, in my latest theme, I had to change all the window buttons because the ones included in the fluxbox theme I chose were hideous).

When everything just fits, and I'm truly satisfied with my desktop, I post it here.

Hope that helps a little, I know I'm not the best tutorial writer
