Hello there,
Im really excited by your LightDM customization, please could you write me know-how to set it up? I will be really glad if you could describe every step that you have done. Or could you send me your confings? Where can I download " unity greeter"? Thank you very much

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Yep! What syre said!

I'll note that there are a few different versions of each so it might take some experimenting to get it to install. On my netbook I used yaourt and built lightdm and lightdm-unity-greeter with no problems but on my Desktop I couldn't get lightdm-unity-greeter to build and I haven't quite gotten it up yet.

Once you get them both installed just navigate over to /etc/lightdm and edit the lightdm.conf to use unity-greeter (you're going to have to uncomment the "greeter=" line), save that, then edit the lightdm-unity-greeter.conf and change the background to whatever background you use (The one I used can be gotten by search "Arch Linux" at www.wallbase.cc) and comment out the "logo=..." line so it doesn't show the Ubuntu logo.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I prefer to keep things simple.  Just an ordinary, clean desktop works for me.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

arabuli: that's a nice desktop, but i think you need to take notice of the forum rules concerning large images and nudity.

Btw: Tbilisi rocks, i had a great time there a while ago. smile

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

Two Xfce panels, top and bottom.
The top acts like the gnome2 environment with an applications menu.
The bottom acts like a dock, its set to autohide, icons are large, etc.

I have two conky configs I am currently working on, I plan to have four across the bottom soon.

Style: Atolm
Icons: Faenza-Xfce
Fonts: Ubuntu Light
Cursor: Vanilla-DMZ White

Xfce panel is a custom gradient I made in Gimp.

EDIT: Shamelessly took the Conkyrc from ViruSzZ. Tad bit late on edit I know. But, I couldn't find who made it till now.

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I've noticed a few people using an Arch logo on the 'Applications Menu' button on the panel but I can't seem to find a similar icon to use. Would someone mind linking me to one? Thanks smile

Playing with Xfce on a new crappy laptop smile

Clean:

Dirty:

Compiz, Atolm GTK2 theme, AwOken icon theme. The Conky theme is a very slightly altered version of this theme on deviantart: link

If you want the wallpaper just do a google image search of "I see no God up here." It's quite common.

EDIT: Re-upped the pics because I fixed Conky smile

Re: Show off your XFCE desktop!

I'm wondering, how do you people have transparent panels with transparent Window Buttons Applet?
Mine is only transparent if I check flat buttons, but the current open application is not transparent.
I can provide screenshots, if needed :-)

Go to "Window Manager Tweaks" in your settings menu and enable compositing. Then just play around with the settings a bit. It's pretty straight forward.

Do I understand you correctly, everything is transparent except for the button of the active window?
I think this is normal behavior, at least it's the same for me (see my screenshot).
