April Desk: Functional Beauty by BilliShere April Desk: Functional Beauty by BilliShere
Well y'all. I am back on ubuntu after a period of hiatus. I'm trying out lucid and I must say I am very impressed by the new release. Although there are some minor annoyances that only someone who knows a thing or two about ubuntu can fix.

this screenshot has a clean and a (really) dirty version. I wish lucid would be shipped like this by default.
fonts are antialiased with autohinting by a special conf file (kinda like kubuntu's or osx's fonts)...

Thanks! That image viewer is called gloobus-preview..It can quickly preview many different kinds of files (not necessary images only) by a quick tap of the space bar on your keyboard (pretty much a useful copycat feature from apple's mac osx).
You may or may not have to install the software from source (compile it). It could be available in Synaptic package manager or it could possibly be available as a .deb somewhere on the internet. You'll have to search for it (and the installation instructions) if need be.

unfortunately i do not have this wallpaper anymore... i gave my laptop in for repairs and they formatted everything and put vista on it. :(
but you can find the wallpaper here on deviantart...it should be under the Mac/PC/OS wallpaper section.

Excuse my ignorance... but what player/skin/app are you using for the CD artwork at the bottom?

ah no worries man,
that is covergloobus.
here is the link to the launchpad page: [link]
and here are some installation instructions (read the whole page if unsure):
[link]
think of it as an alternative to cdart display if you use windows.
it just displays the cover of the song you are playing, its lyrics, and controls for pausing, rating your track, and a few other features.
