That's how it was....already have the cube working fine, 9 sides :)

How do you get the cube to 'stay' 3D like in your 2nd pic vs just going instantly the the next side?

press CTRL-ALT left mouse click and drag. just keep the left mouse button clicked and it will stay 3D at this time you can also let go of CTRL and ALT as long as you hold left mouse down.

Thanks :)

I'm going to see if I can get the top image to cover the entire top, but first I need to finish my HW. This looks so awesome!

Something new to impress people at school with :D

may be my cpu is a single core amd sempron? :D
Kwin effect is not so responsive compared to compiz effect.
I'm using catalyst driver, but gui with kwin effect enabled (expose, grid, cube) seems not so fast with opensource driver... May be I fail with some setting?

Can you not use Compiz? Even a single core should be enough for Compiz effects ;)

OK so I have a really good looking theme I've been working on and I'd like to show off the menus and whatnot, but I can't come up with a program that can display all the buttons and menus and stuff.... So.... Any ideas? (I already know how to take screenshots, thanks)

OK, here's the desktop (and what the Firefox icon looks like when it's selected :p):


Here's the menus (and a tooltip!):

(I probably could have made that smaller, whoops)

And here's some text and a bunch of progress bars:


I love how the watermark exactly covers the volume and time.

I shall make some Linux Mint 11 (Katya) screens, maybe. However the looks are still stock atm because it is a pretty fresh install (less than a week old). I like it so far.

Edit: Here it is. It is still stock, except the panel ("task bar") at the bottom, which I adapted a bit so that it is a bit higher (increasing the icon size a bit in the process).

Sorry about smashing the rules a little but I decided to show the way i access the characteristics I want in linux without needing to reboot. I'd run linux as my primary OS whether it were not for games and certain applications.

I personally use cygwin probably the most and that's why I've party integrated with my command prompt in order to launch it simply like I'd every other spend in linux. (I blanked out my computer/username within the prompt within the lower left hands corner.)

After I need X support I personally use VMware's Oneness feature quite helpful for running GUI applications over SSH in Home windows.

Anyway, sorry if I am not preserving the spirit of the thread.

If you install and configure samba on the Linux host, then the Windows VM can see the host as a server, and can copy and save files from the Linux system. This way, if you have special Windows proprietary software, or a printer that is not supported in Linux, you just jump over to Windows and copy the document and send it to the Lexmark or Canon or whatever.
