    Is Conky what make the bottom and top look like that? And if yes is it free?

    And Lyn: Love Ergo Proxy, and it makes a hot Bacground too.

    I'm currently using a rather plain joy division unknown pleasure pic. http://musik.antville.org/static/musik/images/joy%20division%20-%20unknown%20pleasures.jpg

    I need to change it.


    Yes it is and yes it is free. Awesome, very customizeable program. Available in the repos.

    A virus scanner may be useful for an individual who is running Linux but sending files to users with a Windows OS, for example. Though, not everyone wants to or can be responsible for the longevity and wellbeing of others' computers.

    A fast computer always helps. In continuing to play WoW on this computer, in running Hardy, I still see that my cursor is sluggish. Again, this being a fault of Blizzard by not enabling Hardware Cursor for OpenGL mode. Aside from this, I still notice no performance difference - fps are the same (shitty), regardless of OS. My computer is old and the next step is building a new one, no more upgrades for this thing. I do not expect Ubuntu or Wine to magically make WoW run smooth as butter.

    Linux Mint also has at least one codec package enabled by default (as compared to Ubuntu), therefore the differences go a bit beyond appearance. However, as I said on the 25th of July, this codec is easily available and installed.

    I may mess with the terminal in a VM, if I ever get the itch to do so. A powerful tool, indeed - I could not have gotten my printer working were it not for the terminal, a tutorial on Ubuntu's forums (and forum posters!) for installing the required driver.


    You don't need a virus scanner in linux as long as you have one in windows if you are sending files to windows.

    Wubi was my very first taste of linux. It doesn't create a partition on your drive, it lives in a folder in your windows installation. You can still dual boot with it, it's just not quite so scary to install it. I fell in love with it and have been with linux ever since, 47 distros later, I chose Ubuntu.

    Been messing with some themes. My dock isn't done yet, can't even decide if I want it so i won't show it, but here's one picture.

    Just a Silv inspired version of Stardust UI, c&c appreciated. Just feels like something is missing.


    I need to do a little updatey of that UI...I am so wow burned out you have probably seen me in the desktop screenshot thread more. I think I made that tooltip with tiptac. I'm sad, I can't even remember which one lol. Nice job on it.

    Slither :D

    Thankyou for the antivirus link, I actually chose AVGfree for linux. One question I have though, since you run Ubuntu, and I'm assuming using wow with wine. I read an article yesterday that said in the new versions of wine its possible to enable it to run in direct3d somehow to stop the sluggish cursor issue. I messed around with it, but it doesn't seem to be working. Wondering if anyone else had read up on it at all.

    As for terminal in Mint, I still have to use it to unpack plugins and things like that. I also use it to run wow with aoss mixed sound, but for normal every day things, installing/uninstalling, downloading, things like that, it's almost like using windows. I would like to start learning how to customize it a little bit, but I am not quite sure where to start at for information. I thought someone mentioned a dock you can get for linux.

    Yesbit you are missing my point, not everyone even knows where to get your addons, so they wouldn't know if you weren't making them anymore. I understand your frustration, you just can't expect everyone to know exactly what is going on.

    Stop hosting my old addons, Im tired of having bug issues with addons i dont even make any more

    And FYI, thats the exact reason i removed the SVN and made a new one.

    If you want pTags, go get evl_NamePlates, its what pTags is forked from.


    Just so you know, not everyone knows you don't make them anymore. If I use an addon in a package that works, but has been abandoned, usually i use it until it's dead. I think that is how most people are.

    I currently find it difficult to work without wobbly windows..... it's just so damn fun.


    I LOVE how they stick to the side of the screen and you kind of have to peel them off. I'm dumb, it makes me giggle.

    Well, I only really played around with Ubuntu for a few hours, and most of it was trying to figure why my wireless wasn't working. I've never used linux before so this is totally a new experience for me. I took a look at the flavors of linux that Unetbootin could install, just because i'm not familiar with any of them. I chose LinuxMint because it's a little more gui oriented for beginning, and its really pretty.

    As for Compiz, the things it can do are totally worthless, but it's just so neat. And I have a pretty decent video card, so playing with it has been pretty fun. Here are a couple shots.

    So i can't really tell you the difference between the two, I'm sorry. But I can say, wow runs better in wine than it does on Vista. Going to stay with Linux for a long while. Are there any antivirus programs for linux?

    Edit: one more: http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i167/sarahmkratz/FlyingWindows.png flying windows

    Just an update from me. Linux Mint is the single best thing I have ever seen, and Compiz Fusion 3D is the single best graphics program I have ever seen, I am giddy like a school girl. Please do visit Youtube and type in Compiz Fusion and check it out. You will drool, I promise.

    Foldager, I couldn't find the posts I had in mind from WowAce, but in the following post, Kamdis links the file I was looking for:

    http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html;jsessionid=2B772A4F9B87EB5E98438C78D57E6EA2?topicId=2766098713&postId=27657007134&sid=1


    Obviously, if you personally don't feel secure downloading that file, don't. However, if you do download it and put the folder into the Interface (not AddOns) folder, your minimap icons should have a square border.

    Also, I hope savebin, or one of the other addons I linked, does what you want. :) I've tried NotesUNeed years ago, and NefPad recently, but not savebin. Personally, I haven't settled on one since I don't find myself writing notes too often.


    Just want you to know, that file comes from my filefront page and you need not worry about it not being safe, though I definitely understand if anyone worries.

    I read into Litestep a little after you posted it, and I have to admit I really just got into all of this customization stuff from reading this thread, and I don't really understand much of anything I read on the litestep page. Maybe someday I will mess around with it.

    As for Wubi, awesome program. It really gave me a chance to mess around with the Linux environment, which I have never really done before, and decide if i liked it. In messing with it and spending like 8 hours trying to figure out why my stupid wireless internet would work on windows side but not ubuntu, I've decided i do really like it. I went through the different linux distros(yay I used a new word) that Unetbootin can provide and finally just choosse to download and burn LinuxMint. Gotta have the prettiest, of course. I'm so new to this stuff, but partitioning with resize didn't look terribly bad until my D drive had errors and I had to cancel the installation. So now I am defragging which is probably going to take all day :(

    But for anyone out there that has a desire to try Ubuntu, I would definitely recommend Wubi. It installed like a dream, no partitioning needed, no cd needed. The only issue I had with the internet took me 8 hours to figure out I needed to capitalize a letter :D

    kinda what ive been thinking to do as well.
    integrate clickable icons into my wallpaper.
    just feels like its gonna be to much work


    I did it the super easy way. I used Objectdock. However, I've just used Wubi to install Ubuntu on my machine so I have been playing around with that. If I can get my stupid internet connection to work for Ubuntu, I may never go back to Windows. So much more to learn as i have never used linux, but I already like it better.
