Post by: Ryuu on February 03, 2011, 06:02:03 pm
well i noticed we where lacking a post your desktop thread, so i made one (well am making (well, will have made as of when you are reading this)) it's fun to see how people personalize their computers

heres my desktop:

The cursor I have is from the ED cursor set of Earth 2150

well i wouldn't know about the cursor, windows dosen't capture cursors in the screenshot

Mine normally flick through a folder of about 200 or so on shuffle, but here is one of my favorites - too large to upload, so here is a deviantart link. (http://hel999.deviantart.com/art/Tenpenny-Babe-195746840)

Mine is pretty standard. Nothing fancy. Even the default background.

what distro is that?
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Hans on February 05, 2011, 01:28:45 pm
what distro is that?
That's Open SuSE 11.2.
I once had a system that was more or less a LFS, (you try to get a standard distribution run X11 on a computer with 300 MB disk and 20 MB RAM) these days I prefer a system that is less time consuming in its administration.

My desktop.  Both literally and figuratively.  It's a photo of my work bench.  I think it was a transmission gear.  Though to be honest, I can't remember what it came out of.

how do you capture you desk top on Vista?

Post by: Brekkjern on July 26, 2011, 04:33:10 pm
There is a brilliant button called "PrtScr" that takes a screenshot. It saves it to the clipboard. So you will have to go to pain or something and paste it in.

Ooh, man, you all have some awesome desktops. My favourite has to be Chag4's, though. This (http://i41.tinypic.com/28cqb0y.png) is my newest one, but this is my preferred one:

That's mine.  I'm not sure why it put the task bar from the 2nd monitor in the middle, it's on the bottom on my actual screen <shrug>

Also - Chag I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurv the Sims and I'm jelly cuz I think you have more of the packs than I do :<  Although I do have all the expansions and I think 3 of the stuff packs so maybe not >.>

Seriously during the week I play WoW and on the weekend I play the Sims /excitinglife.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Chag4 on August 17, 2012, 02:00:19 pm
Well, I'm a collector so I try to get all of the packs, but EA are moneysucking bitches so I wasn't sure if I'd pick up the Diesel pack and I just kind of boycotted the Katy Perry stuff because I just found it ridiculous.

I have everything of Sims 2 also btw, I just didn't have room for all the icons on my desktop anymore.
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: ducky_worshiper on August 17, 2012, 09:52:45 pm
Yeah I don't have the Diesel pack, the Katy Perry one, the car one, or um, the outdoor one.

The space theme continues!  Unfortunately on a terrible resoulution monitor for the moment  :(

Also Icons are for suckas.

And odd, If you are running windows, an easy way is to find the "print screen" (or potentially "Prnt Scrn") button on your keyboard; Go to your desktop, showing what you want to show in the picture, and hit the button.  Next right click on your desktop and go to -> New -> Bitmap image.  Once you create a new image file, open it up, press Control + V and the image should paste itself into the file.  Then save, upload and rejoice.

(Yes, I know it's been over a year since anyone posted here, but I'm hoping the occasional thread necromancy might encourage a few people back...)

So I'm running Arch + xfce + Kwin + Cairo Dock across two monitors (a 24" full HD TV on the left [1980x1080], a 19" monitor to the right [1440x900]).
The preview below is 1117x359, clicking on it will take you to a near full sized version (3128x1005 compared to the 3360x1080 original).

The picture is a DIY photo of part of Kenilworth Castle - the central portion with the large windows was originally the Great Hall, with vaulted stores below.
