October 2009 Screenshots thread

September proved to be another great month for desktop screenshots. Thanks to all for their contributions and discussion. I always enjoy following the progress of these threads each month smile

Thank you also to everyone for sticking to the thumbnail images in this thread. Please continue to use thumbnails linking to the larger image to help those of us with slow connections. An example of the code needed is below. Most image hosting websites will automatically generate this for you as well.

Re: October 2009 Screenshots thread

Something different to start this month. Shot below looks much like many of my posts before except it's not Openbox. This week after spending some time recently working with the latest Zenwalk and xfce I decided to try and reproduce the same thing with Crunchbang. Basically I installed a minimal xfce then stripped out the openbox and lxde components. Still using tint2 and conky with xfdesktop instead of nitrogen. Being a fan of a few subtle transparencies/compositing, I find this an ideal environment smile

Re: October 2009 Screenshots thread

ADcomp, be careful with it, it is beautiful but rather capricious. At least my compiz+awn setup were. Make sure you do not launch anything that could interfere with compositing, i ruined my setup couple of times with wesnoth and something else i do not remember.

Oops, I've been moderated lol Thanks to whoever it was on staff who fixed the link in my original post smile

@WaterRatj: It's the menu that is produced by the xfdesktop package, part of xfce.

A little off topic but:

Hanna, what version of MOC are you using ? I have moc 2.2.4 and it doesn't have the -Q option.
