I'll play. I keep a very clean, unassuming workspace. No icons on the desktop, because that leads to clutter, and I'm the type of person who gets disorganized easily. The background is just a stock image that came with LMDE. I barely use the taskbar, which is hidden most of the time anyway, because I use keybinding for my important apps.

Which call did you look up? Try the stateside call, and check out my QSL card in the upper right corner. You don't see many like that one any more!:cool:
Looked up the VP9 fisrt. Just looked up your WA1 call nice.
Yep Nice built and owned my share of Heathkit equipment over the years. HW101 /SB 300/301/303 HW7,8,9 scope keyers etc.

To keep it kinda on topic, here's the desktop background I use on this system:

Yes, folks, can we keep Jas's Thread more or less On Topic, please?

Ham Radio enthusiasts, pilots and so on can get a room over at Off Topic subforum, that's what it's for.

Cheers

The only changes worth sharing were in the right side of the screen. I made conky less wide in order to have more of the background image visible and removed nm-applet and sound applet. I've never had to use the nm-applet anyway. As for the sound applet, I was unable to find its symbolic icon in order to change it with a better one, so I removed that one too and set the audioplayer to display it's icon in tray, so that I know it's running. If I need to access sound settings, I do it through the Menu.

On Cinnamon removing the gnome nm-applet brings forth the cinnamon's applet which can't be removed or uninstalled but I found a way to get rid of it:

Autostart with a delay of 3 seconds:
sh -e /media/1000GB/PROGRAMS/LINUX/SYSTEM/AUTOSTART/KILL-NM-APPLET/kill-nm-applet.sh
where
kill-nm-applet.sh is executable and contains

Code:
#!bin/bash

killall nm-applet

so no more annoying nm-applet.

Gone for a desert icon scheme and a glass surface. Sort of like what ancient egypt would look like about 1000 years into the future, compliments my speakers nicely:

Unfortunately my dated old rig with green-lit fans doesn't go well together, it is, however, due for a replacement and right now I am in the phase of trying to figure out how to successfully cool a high end system in the azza pyramid, which will theme everything just perfectly!

Issat a Gnome 3 standard or other icon set? If it's a custom one, dya got a link to that icon set (if it ships with a standard DE, I probably don't know it coz I only use XFCE myself and I've installed many distros on many machines and the default's a bit hazy)? I upgraded from bog standard Adwaita to Moka nearly 2 years back and am looking for a refresh that's easy to see, neat, polished, and complete. TIA.
