My desktop is basically the standard Trisquel-mini setup, but I have this background - a picture I took myself at my hometown. The car, unfortunately, is not mine :-D

I think it has to do with appretiation for a very old, antique object and how much time the cars actually spend on the road. Such an oldie is likely the special "baby" of the collector. I wouldn't be surprised if the owner washes and cleans the car more often than driving it.

Cinnamon on an x200-aged tablet convertible - I think an X200 should also be able to be used like this, which should mean that despite its age, it's further from useless than a Windows 98 desktop probably was at its release.

Here's mine.

I have a hidden i3bar (i3status from i3vm) with a few system data.I can display it with Super/Windows.
my scrot shortcut doesn't seem to work anymore...
I'll try again.

No icons, only keyboard shortcuts (and dmenu, which is a bar at the top that displays what I'm looking for as I type, then I press enter to launch it. I can display it with a keyboard shortcut).

For your custom icons (I not sure if all icons are public domain):

http://www.iconarchive.com/search?q=firefox

And for full theme (theme, icons, cursors)(I not sure if this theme is fully free, you can read the license)(this is XFCE theme)(you can decompress the .deb file and install theme, cursors, icons manually opening /usr/share/ folder with gksu for example):

I can't find more beautiful theme that this, and I love aqua buttons.

The Dock is Cairo-dock, if someone want my config theme file for Cairo-Dock, I'll share it(only theme, not icons).

Got tired of my old desktop so I did a little tweaking during my free time this weekend. The only thing I don't really like are the icons I'm using on the panel. Does anyone know of any minimal icon packs that might look a little more polished?

Also I've been considering switching to a tiling window manager just to experiment. I used dwm for a little while a few years ago and it works well but has a bit of a steep learning curve.

For a classic-style desktop, it looks great (and functional)!

I can't remember why I switched to i3wm specifically instead of another tiling wm, but getting rid of icons (and window decorations) was one of my reasons to swich from classic WMs and DEs. Automatically putting 2 windows side by side was cool too. It's also super lightweight (why carry unnecessary load if you can do without it?).
You can print the (short) list of shortcuts and get used to it, there's only a handful of them (it's actually very simple). oh yeah, being keyboard-driven was also one of the reasons. But I actually use my mouse often. Not sure I have the best habits yet.
I'm thinking of replacing i3lock though, which seems less secure and more annoying to configure for dual screens than say xscreensaver.
I'm still tweaking mine, but I'll post updates when I'm done.

So my reasons:
- keyboard-driven, better for my hands than a mouse. And faster for most tasks.
- simplified aesthetics (no app icon/windows decorations)
- lighter.

I used Conky, it's a desktop overlay that lists just about anything you want it to list. I used this Conky Script: http://ubuntulife.net/how-to-install-conky-lua-in-ubuntu-12-04/

I then just made a Trisquel graphic for it, and picked the Fedora one, since it was already blue.

Hope that helps!

Hi !

Your nice desktops made me want to try other themes through Gnome that I've never tried before.

My frist steps were quite disapointing because of wrong choices among themes that works better with latest Gnome version, but Elegance Colors 2.7 is quite well to make it customable with Trisquel's repository Gnome shell version. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Elegance+Colors?content=151436

Catfishes, is it a secret ? Do you use a special GTK theme or something with a Firefox theme ???

My wallpaper is coming from a failed photo untouched by Gimp took by Picardie's sea in France to keep the Trisquel spirit.

Greetings to all of you.

I like this picture for its natural noise. It's a view of nature and it isn't disturbing to find a file or folder on the desktop. Too much details and colors let you work difficult on it. I keep it as a base of the environment.

To answer Vita_cell, my first feelings of Gnome were I was feeling a bit lost to find something precise as I haven't tried it yet and I had to come back to a normal Trisquel. But on Windows 8, I wasn't even able to find the switch off button !
Gnome can be quite nice if you use a touchscreen.

There are great videos introducing XFCE. It seems nice.
Be sure I'll have a try soon Vita_cell !

I did professionally some graphics using Apple. It is when I saw what Apple did, after the iMac with the first release of iPhone that I got disgusted of their business plan to sell priceless highly designed gear to nuts for them to shine in society.

I have kept an eye on theses interface creations since I use GNU/linux. There are great stuffs to do for every kind of people even if you're not a programmer.
I'd like to do someting in it.

First, with Gnome I feel like in the jail, too much things are not very customizable. LXDE it is not bad but it is very downgraded.

Windows 8 it is horrible. Full downgraded.

Yes, Gnome for touchscreens will be better option I think, but not for desktop.

I love apple stock OSX GUI, but It is horrible the downgrade from Yosemite, it looks like iPhone or iBad and not desktop computer, with Yosemite you lose your beautiful aqua buttons/scrolls and customization.

The good thing of GNU/Linux, is that you install what you want, and not what want Apple or Micro$soft. You take the full control of your computer/device.

I don't want to says that Gnome is a shitty or crappy, I only say that I hate it.

I love apple's laptops design, but not software. Personally I have macbook 1,1 and air 2,1, but without OSX. pesonally I prefer Macbook 1,1 design. It is why I don't buy Thinkspad gluglug laptop.

Gnome might not be a good desktop option for you, but it's still a good desktop option, and a smart idea. Even if I don't use it, I think it should be Trisquel's default, and here's why:

I learned recently that Gnome is interesting BECAUSE it's not highly configurable (at first glance at least). For a new user who barely knows GNU/Linux, it means much less chances to break the system.
It gives a sense of stability and reliability which is important.
Also, I've read that some advanced users like it and use it too. It's more configurable than you think.
I'd probably suggest Gnome 3/Shell to new users for the aforementioned reasons.specially when you take into account the Gnome classic features (classic menu), so it's easy to use.

Those Macbooks don't cost too much anymore (which is nice), but the max amount of RAM is unfortunately very low. An X200 might be better for a similar amount (Non-Gluglug, the basic stuff), for the sole reason that you have more room to upgrade. But sure, the Macbook looks nice and is probably enough to handle most basic tasks.

Technically, GNOME is already Trisquel's default, in the form of GNOME flashback. (Semantics, semantics)

The problem with GNOME 3 being Trisquel's default is that it would require either 3D acceleration or a fairly powerful computer for software rendering.
A lot of popular graphics cards don't have 3D accleration that are free software-friendly, and I don't think people want their PC's resources spent on the DE when they could be used on their programs.
Part of the appeal for Trisquel, anyway, is it's familarity which makes it very easy to switch to for Windows users. (Some people won't even notice that you've switched out their OS *evil chuckle*)

In the future, perhaps GNOME 3'll be a vaiable (smart, even) option, but for now, it doesn't seem that way.

Argh, that's too bad.
Gnome 3 does look more modern, and with the classic menu, still remains familiar. Its strong point to me is it's reliability. I know I managed to break Trisquel's current desktop bar, though it was an isolated case (but it still not a good feeling).

As for the familiarity point, it could be another idea to organize the menu precisely the same way a classic Windows menu is (with the control panel, some links to folders put in the same place etc).

I think Mint does that if I'm not mistaken.

EDIT:
Worst case scenario, even if 3D acceleration isn't supported:
"So, the official plan is basically that people can still use the GNOME 2 panel and window manager with GNOME 3 applications and libraries, if necessary, but this is a transitional state. To get the GNOME 3 experience, you need hardware acceleration."
https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeShell/FAQ#What_led_to_the_decision_to_make_3D_acceleration_a_requirement_for_GNOME_Shell.3F

I mean it sucks, but it works nonetheless.
what would be interesting also is a lightweight GNOME Shell version. I know there's XFCE, LXDE and all, But I like the idea of limited customizability for better stability, as an introductory (or daily) DE.

= Trisquel.

Except Trisquel just comes with *only* the classic setup, and default
configuration is different.

To be fair, Trisquel already does a pretty damn good job of getting the Windows
feel. The only thing that could be better is the 'Start' menu itself- but
that's up to the GNOME people to release an Xfce-style 'whisker' menu (aka Mint
default).

Sure, It would improve the classic feel,
though Trisquel as is does already a good job at that.
But it's also true that if people can get used to a Mac desktop,
they can get used to another one with a menu. No need to go too far in the windowfication.
Plus there are themes and menus that can be installed for that.

But the difference with GNOME Shell with a classic menu is that the latter is less configurable,
thus much harder to break.
I managed to break my Trisquel bar, for example, though it happened only once.
But once is all that's needed to send a negative (but false) message of unreliability.

I was talking about the current (GNOME Flashback) desktop with the same layout,
but a Windows-style 'whisker' menu like in Xfce or Mint instead of the current
menu.

Same here.
I'm comparing the current GNOME Flashback
with GNOME shell but with a classic menu added.
The "whisker" menu could be a good addition indeed.

It's more configurable than you think.

Indeed? See http://extensions.gnome.org

And see http://wiki.gnome.org/GnomeShell/CheatSheet (in particular the keyboard shortcuts at the bottom of the page)

EDIT:
It seems it's not as foolproof as I thought.
Not only there's that 3D thing, but also it seems sometimes the keyboard layout get randomly switched in some cases.

These are not horrible bugs, but it doesn't make GNOME3 as fullproof as it is supposed to be (why then bare possible but limited configuration possibilities?).

EDIT2:
Seems like it occurs only when Unity is already installed, like with Ubuntu.

Hmmm, funny. I used GNOME Shell the whole time I was a Debian user, and loved
it (and I'm not exactly a noob or anything).

1. Call me boring, but I think GNOME 3.14 with Adwaita and Debian Lines is
approaching Apple-level beauty. I barely even customised it. Actually, the lack
of customisation was one of the things I liked about it, because what happens
whenever I'm offered something with more customisation, I spend hours
configuring and reconfiguring it, going through every_single_option (Think
Xfce, the lighter WMs, WindowMaker) and then changing it every few days.
Customisation quickly becomes an obsession (yay OCD!) and I'd rather avoid
that. With a fresh install of 3.14, I can just run through the options, tweak,
and I'm done.

2. Although GNOME Shell gets a lot of flak for its (un)usability, it actually
really suits my workflow, with the overview bound to Super, and minimal
clutter. I currently use Trisquel DE (which I've customised to look like Ubuntu
GNOME 2) and launching a program requires a click on Applications > hunting
through menus > and then finally launching it, whereas in GNOME I would just
hit Super and type the first few letters of the name. I could launch whatever I
wanted entirely hands free.

So I like GNOME 3, for both its sexiness, and workflow. By using GNOME. you're
also attracting people to GNU, because it's so damn pretty. People get
interested, as opposed to the stock 'oh, ugliness' reaction to Xfce, say.
