Here's my desktop.  I've stuck with one of the default wallpapers just because I think Ray Bilcliff's photos are stunning  ;).

Click to Enlarge Image


Widget is: Peppermix-Dark-7-Red, Icon Theme is: Peppermix -7,  The wallpaper is Beachfront_(image_by_Ray_Bilcliff).jpg.  This is in the default wallpaper selection.  It's a photo of Whitley Bay in the North East of England.  I've installed Docky instead of Plank this time, just for a change.  The Conky set is: Gold And Grey Conky.  This is actually five separate Conky displays that have been custom positioned.  The package screenruler is very useful to do this.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install screenruler
.

Click to Enlarge Image


Here is the Whisker Menu with Panel positioned at the top of the screen.  I've turned off: Show application descriptions in the menu Properties.  The panel is set to autohide because I'm using a laptop and real estate is at a premium.  You can see the items I've added to the Panel

Click to Enlarge Image


The Sakura terminal has been customized to launch with a custom geometry, four tabs and screenfetch.  The terminal font and size is Teminus, 13.  The palette is xterm.

Click to Enlarge Image


Displaying the Nemo file manager with a split screen configuration.  The font and size is Roboto Regular, 11.  The Sakura terminal is rolled up.

Hi All

Nice Setups joeSH  8) and AndyinMokim  8)

I always know what I like and I can plagiarise like a Pro.  I just I wish I had some artistic flair to come up with my own ideas.

It's why I have to trawl posts like these to get inspiration  :)

Thanks ZEBEDEEBOSS and hats off to ANDYINMOKUM, the conky is spot on!  8)

I've had a bit of a go at conky but I didn't really want to mess too much without knowing exactly what to do. It would be great to have a step by step to follow.  :-\
