ArchLinux with gnome-shell 3.4.

I'm starting to dislike the intense shadows in mutter. They need to be made configurable. :/ I'm also disliking the lack of good application design in the foss world. Just a plain nautilus window for now because couldn't really figure out what else to display. :p

Wallpaper: [link] (Slightly modified. The original can be seen in the right pic.)
Shell theme: [link] with a modified panel.

IMO opinion the problem with open-source design is twofold;
1. Everyone today is a graphic designer, photographer, UI specialist etc... The KDE icon-set (since 4.6) is a perfect example..., quotes from the developer saying "they'll grow on you" and "the icons are technically more aesthetic". Really? A professional graphic artist working as an unpaid foss developer?
2. The lack of any design concept, guidelines or visual framework for dev's to comply with prior to their work being incorporated into mainstream distro's. Again as an example, KDE is touted as having "too many" config's to deal with, but more often these settings merely take you from one visual disaster to another. And let's not start talking about the theme shortcuts developers take hard-coding colors and substituting images to make the vanilla base look right.

Hang in there lassekongo83... It is individuals like yourself that show these guys for what they are. I am a open-source user but I don't 'revere' the almighty dev's like most do. I don't buy their contra-arguments more often than not and certainly have no time for their excuses...

After all, it's the developers themselves who's desire it is to foster open-source adoption and increase market share overall on the desktop. Personally I'm tired of hearing it and would instead like to SEE something done about it.

Nice work. Gnome-shell theme is quite nice and I love the look of the window borders on the gtk theme.

Personally I prefer the look of Thunar, though that may just be my GTK theme.

A lot of the *really* bad looking Linux apps are old as dirt and difficult to change, having old GTK UI code written in straight C (GIMP). I've seen a number of newer apps that look really great, though. This new push to use PyGObject with Glade is a good one, IMO.

If you're looking for a good configurable compositor where you can change the effect, check out compton. [link]
