Graphics, User Interfaces Since it's year end, I thought I'd post one more "fun piece" for everybody. After Thom posted an article on his customized KDE desktop, I thought it might be interesting to compare desktop screengrabs and see what other OSNews'ers desktops look like. Are you cluttered or clean? Are you minialist? What's your wallpaper? Upload a picture to an online service or your own website and show off your desktop. I'll start: Adam's desktop (312kb).

SLED 10 here

Running SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 here, with dual 20" Samsung monitors, so 3200x1200, split down the middle.

No, not much imagination here. I stay close to the defaults as my clients typically do the same. There also is a lack of 3200x1200 backgrounds out there.

I think these URL's are live.

The desktop

Typical apps open

Happy New Year all...

How do you get your panels to span both screens? On mine (see a few comments up), I can only get them to span the main screen.

Got a pic of the actual screens, sounds like an awesome setup!

To be completely honest, I'm not totally sure what I'm doing that makes it span both.

My Sax2 config looks like the monitors are both in 1600x1200x16.7. I have Dual Head Mode check for Xinerama at 1600x1200. 3D acceleration is on.

In Screen Resolution in the Control Center, I have it set to 3200x1200--maybe that's the key for stretching the entire desktop across......

Would be happy to send any config files that might help you..... let me know.

Oh, BTW, Desktop Effects work fine across both monitors as well. Have the cube spanning, which is very cool!
