Share your Gnome desktop

I've switched to Gnome on my EEE 901.
Things are running fine now.

I'm curious, if a lot of people use Gnome here, and if so, how does it look!

Re: Share your Gnome desktop

Archers seem to love more lightweight solutions like Openbox etc... Or KDE.

I run Gnome on my desktop daily basis and I'm fully satisfied. I'm planning to move to Gnome 3 if it comes out.

I liked and used KDE when the version was 3. After 4 came out, it disappointed me and now I don't want to go back, at least now.

My screenshot from December thread: click

I'm too lazy these days to hassle with GTK/Metacity themes. OOB experience is enough for me -- working fast stable desktop.

Exactly, but none for Gnome!
Like mentioned, it's Archers go for more lightweight stuff.
Thx for all the replies so far.

@sausageandeggs

That's one beautifull setup!

Would you mind sharing:

- Gnome theme
- Conky script(s?)
- Weather script
- Wallpaper

Thanks!

Sven

Nice one too!

How did you manage to get that Firefox menu to be on top and separated from it's own window?

Re: Share your Gnome desktop

Here you go Sven, the Gnome theme is elegant gnome with nautilus elementary.
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=39541
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=39246

Window decoration is an emerald theme, I've put that, the wallpaper and all the conky stuff in a tarball for you to grab.

You'll need a couple of other pkg's installed if you want to get conky exactly the same, details in the tarball.

Enjoy!! smile

I use the Liberation fonts package (ttf-liberation) from the community repo. The font in the terminal window is Liberation Mono @ 14 points.

Thanks! But I mean, what are your font settings? Could you post a screenshot with the settings window open?

AWN theme: Divergence IV
Covergloobus theme: Ibex
Conky: this
Icon theme: Faenza Dark
gnome-globalmenu in the gnome menu.

The apps in the second screenshot is just PCManFM-mod, rhythmbox and urxvtc showing cmatrix and ascii hypnotoad.
