The Stylish Ubuntu Desktop

The Stylish Ubuntu Desktop

Reader naaamo2004’s Ubuntu desktop proves that Linux can be slick, stylish, and functional all at the same time.

The desktop is a combination of:

  • Ubuntu with a custom theme.
  • Avant window navigator with custom icons.
  • Conky with custom scripts for resource usage, clock, and now playing.

Great job, naaamo2004!

    “The main point limiting any customization in Linux is that u only have got conky – a text based configurator … Sure its the best one out … but you cannot render an image in it directly..”

    While it is true you can’t render images in conky, you can use gtk-desktop-info in the same way as you use conky. The benefit is, it has the ability to render images and embed html/flash elements.

    Have a look at this thread for more info on gtk-desk-info:
