eCO - Something like this... by lassekongo83 eCO - Something like this... by lassekongo83
Just a concept design of a desktop that I had in my mind. Not a real desktop!

There's a buggy GTK theme that shares some similarities with it. Not much tough. :p - [link]

But let me explain the function of the concept.

1. As you can see in the chat window I've designed a menubar that you click on to summon. (The little m-icon.) I think that can save some space on the windows. It is supposed to fade in when you click the icon. (Pretty animation effects you know. :p )

2. The menu is simple. A keystroke thingie that have 3 options as you can see. But when you click on workspaces (see pink desktop) you can also drag applications to your other workspaces. Clicking once in the menu will open the program in the current workspace, or you can drag the menu item to the desktop you want to open it in. (Isn't that how gnome-shell works?)

Oh well, some minor details in this one can look a bit strange. Like some paddings and the window-icons for example. But it's just a quick concept. :P


Icons: [link] and gnome-colors.

I hear the next Ubuntu will be moving menubar into window border~ Plus that "start" menu might be possible as a variation of cinnamon..? This isn't that far from doable anymore :3

I was looking for your eCO wallpapers today and restumbled upon this. Aside from some of the new concepts you present in this mockup, some of it could make for a really nice Cinnamon theme.

Not a bad idea. I think it'd be nice if we standardize stuff like the application menu specs so we can display them in a variety of fashions. KDE's Kwin may be getting an AppMenu option for the titlebar, for instance. It would be good to have upstream support of this so people can easily switch how their menu is displayed. Of course, flexibility isn't always the biggest priority. I guess we're getting there- thanks for sharing your concepts.

Whoops- just realized how old this deviation is. It's still fairly relevant, though.

Can you please message me and tell me if there a similar theme for windows?

Just the top bar, and navigation. I know the rest is just a concept. I appreciate it!

Wow if that got released I think I'd have a replacement for the Shiki colours theme I've been using for the last year or so. It would be up there with eGTK. I've never really been a fan of the minimalist/monochrome icons, but they work really well here.

I like how you can see a preview of the different workspaces you have saved in this mockup. The practical [well, I mean, *feasible*] parts of this mockup would make a smooth-looking VS. :noes:

I really like this a lot though. :+fav:

This is one of the best desktop setups I've ever seen.

You should show it to the guys who work on GNOME or KDE and see if they would like to implement some of the features.

Maybe it could be done with compiz?

Hmm... well, in a similar vein, Ubuntu are working on a "Me Menu" which is looking to integrate IM chat and twitter-like services into a simple menu. [link]

Regarding Nautilus, somebody has already figured out how to theme Nautilus navigation for that "breadcrumb" idea. [link] <--- This is a modded Elementary GTK, showing the modded Nautilus.

Also, presumably you've seen GNOME 3? The menu system they're implementing is similar to what you've described.

Finally, awesome mockup.
