How do you have your desktop setup?

Recommended Posts

For me one of linux greatest desktop strengths is the ability to customize the gui however you want and I was wondering how other people have theres setup. Mine is KDE with 2 taskbars, top and bottom. The bottom taskbar has application buttons, lancher, knewsticker, kweather (kind of useless), kget, juk, knotes and a dialup applet. The top bar is the actual taskbar with the pager and auto hide on. When I tried suse they had a really cool applet for dialup so connecting/dc was reduced to a single click on the applet, I wish that was in the stock standard kde. Lycoris also has a nice cd mounting applet, I wouldn't mind something like that for all removeable media. So what customizations have you made to your desktop?

I have a gnome 2.6.8 desktop with two panels. The one at the top of the screen consists of: menus, shortcuts to folders, a mail applet, a (very useful) weather applet, application launchers, clock, and volume control. The panel at the bottom of the screen consists of: a window list, system tray, and workspace switcher.

KDE with 5 task bars. 3 of them set to auto-hide and "appear when mouse touches * part of screen." As far as the auto-hide panels go, on the bottom left corner of my screen I have Kweather, bottom right I have Clock, top left I have ksim.

The other two panels can be seen here:

task switcher at the bottom, launchers at the top. Clock at top. Virtual desktops on bottom.

I think it might be the gnome default layout. I don't much care about it unless I think I need another launcher icon on the panel.
