Kubuntu 12.10 x64

KDE SE 4.10 default wallpaper

post-447111-0-48733100-1357153724.jpg

If you guys want to install archey on ubuntu,


sudo apt-get install lsb-release scrot

wget http://github.com/downloads/djmelik/archey/archey-0.2.8.deb

sudo dpkg -i archey-0.2.8.deb
[/CODE]

If you want to make it run at terminal start, type

[CODE]
sudo gedit ~/.bashrc
FOR KDE REPLACE gedit with kate
[/CODE]

Scroll down all the way, and on a new line type archey. Save close, relaunch your terminal and it should work. In theory, this should work with Haggis's script too. If anyone tries it out, let me know how it goes.

My Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop!, last time using Ubuntu was in 2006!! It's so nice to see how it has been improved over the years, I'm triple booting it with Windows 8 and OS X 10.8.

Finally got Transparency working in XFCE again (Catalyst, Xrandr and XFWM compositing don't co-operate), so my desktop looks much nicer now :)

Default GNOME 3.6 (or 3.4 can't remember) on Ubuntu 12.10.

Only showing my main monitor because otherwise it's too big to upload without using an external service.

Also couldn't get Haggis' script to do anything but sit and spin, so used Archey.

EDIT: This posting also shows all 3 the main usernames I use on stuff. Just noticed that.

Looking good! Are you using Infinality? Appears so. Hey, the wallpaper you linked to appears to be different than the one you are actually using. Do you think you could hook me up with the one you are using? It is very nice. Thanks in advance!

Haha, my bad, I tried a lot of wallpapers today and linked the wrong one. I'll fix it.

The actual one is Also Calm.

I'm actually not using Infinality, it's just the in-built XFCE font rendering with Anti-aliasing turned on and full hinting. :)
