Continuing the "Four Elements" theme (I posted my Windows 7 desktop in the "Clean Desktop" thread), here is my Linux Mint 16 (Cinnamon) desktop from my first ever VM (sad, I know). Click to embiggen:


I got the background from here.

This was my xmonad set up a few months back. I dont have any current shots because I am waiting till my new ATI card comes in the mail. If anyone knows who the artist of this wallpaper is let me know I forgot to save the link.

I'm using Debian/Crunchbang with Openbox and Terminator.

How did you get the terminal color scheme like that? :confused: I'm looking to do something similar for my "new" X61s.

I finally installed Steam on a live Linuxmint Debian system, which includes an install of Google Chrome that can be seen in the panel. Also I installed Steam on a live Ubuntu 12.04.02 LTS system, but hated it because it wouldn't let me sudo or su -l or anything equivalent, since it didn't recognize my password. However, Maybe I did something wrong by creating another user account for the admin and switching my user account that was created during the install to a standard account, but then again it wouldn't give me any output for the fdisk -l command and I didn't like the side bar or it being to much like Mac OS X. Also trying to reset the root password in Ubuntu with Knoppix wouldn't work either because it just locked up the system. I also didn't like being spied on as hinted by the Linux community and Richard Stallmann while using Ubuntu. Another thing I didn't like about Ubuntu is that it would n't open my word files in Libre Offfice, but opened them in a document viewer. However, I suppose I could have changed that. The most important thing I don't like about Ubuntu is that even if it's my fault for not being extra cautious is that it wiped out my Windows Installation on my test system, which both Ubuntu and Linuxmint were or are being used on considering I haven't put it on the intended system yet. Here is the screenshot of Steam and Google Chrome on Linuxmint Debian 201403 64-bit Mate:



The following is how to duplicate the installation of Steam on Linuxmint Debian 201403 64-bit:

1. Execute the the following command and elevate to root user if necessary with sudo or su -l : wget http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb

2. Execute the following command and if it fails go to step 3: sudo apt-get install gdebi-core

3. Execute the following command and type y then press enter if prompted: sudo gdebi steam.deb

4. Or, with straight dpkg, you can brute force it with the following commands:
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
sudo apt-get install -f # (If the above command errors)
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
5. Search for Steam in the menu and open in. Then an installer should prompt you for the root password. Type y and press enter when prompt and sometimes just press enter if prompted.

6. Let the install complete. Then create a new account or login in with an existing account and get the access code from your email if necessary.

Have debian and now Ubuntu installed, testing out what i want on my SSD when i get another one. Ubuntu runs much smoother in VM then debian, I take that as a good sign.

VM tells you nothing about performance in pure metal. For example Puppy linux variations often malfunction on VM but work awesome when booted to bare metal.

Here my Linux Desktop while doing some apache configuration with the httpd.conf file and .htaccess file.


By the way this is a screenshot of a CentOS 5.x version running apache 2.2, but I not sure which version of CentOS I was using at the time. It was either 5.7 or 5.9 though if it matters that much.

Love your screenshot Frobozz, Doom 3 FTW!

Compiz at work on Ubuntu 15.04 with a few modifications...And for me, a terminal or six, is always a must, no question.

What is the monitoring software you have on the right side ? Looks like something I would like.

As pwrusr said, it's Conky. Very versatile and can look wildly different depending on how much you configure it. A bit of a learning curve but the docs are pretty comprehensive for the variables and options.

xUbuntu 14.04 on my Acer E11 laptop.



I go for the lean, dark and clean look, myself.
