Pretty gnome

April 10, 2009 at 6:51 am 9 comments

Lately I’ve been noticing how bland my interface looks in Linux Mint. I messed around with the appearance settings screen from the main menu, but I couldn’t make it look any better with that. I’ve heard that the GNOME desktop environment is not as nice-looking as KDE, so I started looking into KDE. Then I found some screenshots of really nice gnome desktops. Wow. I wish I knew how to make it that pretty, but now that I added a new theme from my eyes are much happier.
I still feel like trying out KDE though. I don’t know if it’s GNOME or Linux Mint, but it seems like I can hardly customize my desktop at all. Or maybe it’s just my noobness at Linux. -_-

    aw, it’s ok you’re still a padawan. you’ll be a master someday. except that you’re not training under a master. so maybe not.
    solution: find a Linux master. he’ll teach you how to be one with the source.

    LOL. “May the source be with you.” That’s awesome, I’m gonna put that in my signature in the Linux forums. xD (bad link)

    sweet. I think I saw a shirt once that said “May the source be with you”. it was from some computer conference or something.
    you’re link didn’t work for me by the way. it gave me the Object Not Found error.

    hmmm, that didn’t work either. this time it gave me the “Failed to open page” error. might be something wrong with the network here.

    hey wait a second… how do I have an avatar?

    Strange, that website isn’t working for me anymore either. Well it was just a funny Star Wars/Linux thing. Oh and you got your avatar automatically. Before the automatic avatars were just shape-type things, so I changed to monsters. Much more interesting now. 🙂

    haha, yes it is indeed more interesting. you drew yours though, didn’t you?
    by the way, my Giant Purple Crab of Death could totally take your little Green Straw Hat Guy.

    Yeah I drew it. It was a long time ago, but I randomly found it in my pictures folder and it was the best choice without having to go avatar-hunting. And my green dude eats your crab for lunch!
