E17 EFL overlay (Chopinzee)
First place 2010 screenshot contest!
The window manager is E17, built from the official EFL overlay with
itask-ng. The window manager theme is A-SBlack2.edj for the main,
grey.edj for the clock, and detour-glossy-red.edj for the itask-ng bar.
The wallpaper is Black_wall.edj gimped to properly render at 1920x1080.
The terminals are x11-terms/terminal, GTK theme is "crude." The
application running in the busy shot is mixxx. The compositor is
ecomp with the ecomorph module. The icons on the itask-ng
bar are "Token Light."
Simple is Beautiful (whtwtr)
Second place 2010 screenshot contest!
Simple is beautiful but it must be functional and provide the user with
Shawn's box currently runs compiz as the window manager with
xfce4-panel. The wallpaper is plain old #000000 (black). Two
app-admin/conky-1.8.0 instances render the desktop eye-candy. The first
conky instance powers the ring meters. The rings represent cpu usage
(large white rings), memory usage (green ring), and file system usage (yellow
rings). The second conky instance runs the bottom info bar with uptime,
temps, up/download speeds, calendar and curent time. The globe image is taken
from die.net and is a "Mollweide" projection of the earth's day/night shadow and
He uses cron plus a small script to update the image every hour. (The
clouds are updated every three hours.) Cool, eh?
Xfce from the xfce-dev overlay (GentooApologetin)
Third place 2010 screenshot contest!
Mona's custom Xfce environment is from the xfce-dev overlay. It's on an ~amd64
desktop running compiz-fusion, modded Salmon gtk2 theme, recolored
Humanity Colors icon theme, conky and pcmanfm2 for the desktop,
lxterminal and a fine-tuned claws-mail instance. It's completely
lightweight and runs stable enough as her everyday main system.
Gnome Lover's Dream (shpaq)
Fourth place 2010 screenshot contest!
The judges liked Michał's balance between icon theme, background, custom
conky fonts and the whole look of his desktop.
Simple Elegance (nm)
Fifth place 2010 screenshot contest!
The window manager is dwm. Terminal emulator: urxvt. Wallpaper: of
unknown origin. Font: Proggy Tiny Slashed Zero.
(Almost) default GNOME
Bartek's shot is another of the screenshot contest winners. Bartek got this
decent look by using the depth illusion of a 3D wallpaper along with clever
arrangement of pretty icons. This is good example of how a default theme can be
used to create a beautiful screenshot.
Elegant black WM
Another winner of Gentoo Screenshot Contest is Mikołaj, a.k.a. mklimek, who is a
KDE user so far, and he doesn't intend to change desktops. On his screenshot you
can see some KDE utilities and icons . . . which looks kinda Gnome-like.
Robert's screenshot demonstrates an appealing use of blue hues. Excluding
cairo-clock, his KDE runs only Qt-based applications: kopete,
konsole, and amarok. Robert also cares about his irssi
theme, which is distinguished by green colors.
Even more gentooish
That is probably the most "Gentooish" screenshot here ever and personally for me
it is the most beautiful. Alexander runs Gnome with the Lila icon set, which not
only looks pretty but also befits a Gentoo workstation.
As you can tell, Massimiliano is going to build media-video/dvdauthor on
his KDE box.
