My Favourite Wallpapers

There are often requests for wallpapers in the Desktop Screenshot thread. It might be a good idea to start a thread to share links to favourite wallpapers.

*Please only include pictures if they are thumbnails that link to the original. Otherwise, just post the link (or both)*

Re: My Favourite Wallpapers

I have this obsession with bones, you see. And with the band Faust and their x-ray album covers.

The obligatory screenshot(s) of a busy desktop on my old Compaq Evo D510 SFF desktop machine – it's not aesthetically pleasing, I'm afraid, but it shows e.g. the fact that I have changed from Firefox to Opera (version 10.00.4585.gcc4.qt4) because the former consumed ridiculous amounts of CPU on this box:

ive always liked that image of the eagle nebula http://coolvibe.com/2009/100-epic-image … fcreation/
when you think of the scales involved in the hubble photos it boggles the mind

edit - by the way, you can go here: http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/  to see hubble photos and download high res images and pre-formatted wallpapers

My desktop with the link to wallpaper. Be sure to check out more of the wallpapers they have, this is one of the best sources I ever found for wallpapers yikes
No, seriously, almost all my wallpapers I regularly use are from that site.

Re: My Favourite Wallpapers

And do you know about some calendar/wallpaper, full desktop size? I mean, I got very bad memory, and the first thing I want to see when I open my laptop is a calendar/agenda, full size. With transparency or not, but full size.

I'm looking for this but not lucky.

Re: My Favourite Wallpapers

I don't know about calendar wallpapers, but `osmo -c` is damn close to fullscreen on my netbook.  You could probably run it (with terminal ampersand obviously) via your autostart.sh.

EDIT:  OK, not exactly fullscreen, but it takes up the center half of my screen.

You may even be able to edit the application settings for it in the rc.xml file, to make it always open to the size of the desktop.

Re: My Favourite Wallpapers

Thanks for the info. Maybe it's not the place, sorry.

Osmo is not very beautiful, but it's ok, what I was looking for (light permanent calendar/wallpaper).
