My old Desktops

Here are a few screenshots from my old desktop, you know just to rembmeber them :)

Connectivity Linux
Connectivity integrated to Linux. Used programs: XFce4, Nautilus, GDesklets. Background by: Homeryulo

MacOSX like Linux desktop with shadow effects around the windows, NICE :)

EndEffect with Effect
Simply modified EndEffect background with effect to display net traffic and system status.

"A Dream In Yellow" background made to look like a real live background.

DigitalRedemption background used with console programs like CoNet, SysStat.

Red with Infos
The BludStream background and many infos on screen, like console log, console icq ...


  • wow. Nice backgrounds.

    I understand this is a reply to a very old entry, but I found the idea of 'live backgrounds' intriguing. Kinda reminds me of Cryptonomicon.

    How could one setup a live background?

  • Hi Z,

    Setting up a "live" background depends on little applications called "Desklets", here are a few ones which you could use for your desktop: http://www.gdesklets.org/ but you can always use transparent terminals and run text applications in them which would be like a living background :)

    Hope this helps,
