Not a lot has changed since last month..Same wallpaper at the moment. I need to get my networking properly...For some reason, this laptop can't see my Debian server, yet my two Windows computers can...And it has all my wallpapers lol

But updated to Jessie, and the 3.11.2 kernel. First time I've compiled a kernel.

Also using the new Haggis Stats 2.0 program, works good :)

Arch Linux x64
XFCE 4.10
Theme: Zukitwo
Wallpaper: Taken from here
Icons: Faelementary
UI Font: Droid Sans

The wallpaper actually spans two monitors, but I've modified the wallpaper to compensate for the screen bezel and differing resolutions so it looks crap as a screenshot, therefore I'm only showing my main monitor.

Not a whole lot has changed on my desktop since the last time I posted in one of these threads, other than my desktop background and the new Icedove and Minecraft icons pinned to my top panel that is. My desktop background comes from the Autumn 2013 theme posted here. In case anyone is interested, I posted my script for extracting and sanitizing backgrounds from "Windows 8 Desktop Themepacks" below.

Playing around with the "Numix" theme.  I like it for the most part.  I got it from their PPA, as found on their website: http://numixproject.org/

Keuka, nice ones. Can you share the name of theme and how you done that? PM me if you want. :)

 

Edit: Never mind, I figured out conky manager, but I still want to know your theme.

It's the default elementary theme. There's a download here that should get the same results for you (assuming Gnome or XFCE). Don't know what the icons are though, they look pretty good with the theme though :).
