I guess this isn't the default Mint look?
nope, changed background and themes then added the avant-window-navigator and screenlets.

The avant-window-navigator package requires compiz. At least I found this on Gentoo, but can't get compiz working yet. I think I have some weird xorg.conf problem. As for the desklets tyme has I'm presuming this is part of avant-window-navigator.

the screenlets...are screenlets (not gdesklets)... ;)

 

they play very nicely with compiz's "dashboard" feature (works like the dashboard in OSX)

 

phunni: you're actually supposed to be under "Linux", but somehow you got moved...don't feel so special :P

Thanks

don't know...did you try removing just one of them? do they both disappear if you remove one? i had one screenlet do the same thing, and i just removed it and re-added it and it was fine. right click on the screenlet and there should be an option to delete it. i think it might just be a bug.

I think it is a bug - I had the same thing happen with the clock. The only difference was that I had four of them. Haven't tried deleting it and re-installing it, but it sounds like it may work.

 

do they both disappear if you remove one?

Yes, in my case they all disappered when trying to remove just one.

I decided to make a new desktop for myself. It's amazing what you can do with the gimp tuts out there.

There's also a variation in blue and I've also made versions for widescreens (1600x1200). (The wide versions are for A.I. ;) ) They are here if you would like to DL them: feel free. B)

It may take some time to download the files as they are quite large...

 

-edit- Had to change the link to the deviantart page.
