some desktop luv’n

I’ve been screwing around with my desktop over the last day. Tried out a bunch of gDesklets and slapped on a new background. I should have taken a screen of the before, but at least I have one of the after.

Let’s see, there’s the OSX-like launcher on the right, the column of various things on the left, the multitail thing in the centre-bottom (which is only tracking system messages, at the moment; notice all the errors ^^;), the memo thing beside the OSX launcher, and the corner xmms interface. *phew* One might even say things are a little cluttered, at the moment… especially considering I’m stuck with a 1024×768 laptop LCD, but I’m still evaluating them. Plus, it’s not like they get in the way of things – they’re basically part of the background! Fun stuff. :mrgreen:
Now, my goal for today was to get ACPI working, and thus prevent all of those error messages from scrolling onto my perdy desktop. Guess I’ll get at it. I have a huge buildup of random stuff from the past week+ that I was gonna put in my blog… maybe next post(s).


  1. Yeah, that’s definitely a nice one. It seems to be the most popular on the whole site. But there is one problem that prevents me from using it: when selecting menu items or something, sometimes the text of the currently selected item is totally invisible! It’s like the background is white and moving over the text makes it white. I don’t think something like this would be left in there, so it’s probably a problem with my setup somewhere… maybe I should upgrade metacity.

    I also have an issue about plastering the Mac logo all over a computer that is in no way a mac. Taking the look of another OS is okay… but pretending to be another OS makes me feel dirty.
