Monkey see, monkey do... so when I see other people posting screenshots of their "sexy desktops" and recipes to configure like that, I can't resist the urge and to the same. here is how my desktop looks at the moment:
So the recipe:
- GNOME theme is the unmodified Fedora 13, the same colors, icons widgets - as boring as possible;
- the Panel layout is also standard Fedora/GNOME, with a couple of launchers and applets added to the top panel and with slight transparency to the panels, just for kicks (and with Metacity the transparency is fake anyway);
- the wallpaper is a self-made photo, but it will be probably available in a F14 package;
- the desktop is piled [apparently] chaotically with a bunch of files and folders for projects I am working now or worked lately. Believe me, I can find what I need there.
Am I boring or what?
