I stumbled across this the other day, I’ve no idea why the fedora team would go to the effort of making a really nice theme for the lock dialogue for gnome screen saver then leave it “disabled by default”. After a quick google I found the ubuntu guys have been up to something similar, so here a quick how to enable the fedora art work on the gnome-screensaver lock screen.
To enable paste this into a terminal (NOT root, as your normal user).
gconftool-2 -s --type=string /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme system
To switch it back:
gconftool-2 -s --type=string /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme default
The only “downer” is that your avatar isn’t shown, but for my work laptop I prefer this theme, much cooler fedora advocate when I’m not at my desk
After seeing this post on planet maemo, I wanted to replace my “applications” button with an n800 icon, but I couldn’t find one anywhere… I found a couple of icons in
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/hildon that where close to what I wanted (there’s a bluetooth icon, and input one) but they weren’t quite right, so this is what I managed to mash up.
Nokia Internet Tablet Icon
Hope you like it!
…or Gnome Matrix 3… this would be 2! It makes sense if you’re an art.gnome fan!
I don’t know what it is this month, but the wallpapers are flowing out of me!!
It's like, Gnome meets Mac meets Neo!
EDIT: Now available on art.gnome
EDIT: Also avilable here on art.gnome.org
Look at this, dry for ages, and 2 posts in a day!
Actually this happened a couple of days ago, my laptop crashed, and this black & stripy screen is what I got, I thought it’d make a cool gnome art
Making good use of the time she crashed.
It’s been a while since I’ve done some art, so this eve’ I felt like a dabble, this is what I came up with…
Not too much, not too little.
I like gradients, blue and was aiming for something simple. A copy can be downloaded from gnome look here. I don’t suppose it’s good enough for art.gnome so I won’t bother
Tiz cold in here!
Frosy Grass is by far my most successful piece of gnome art; it’s got my best rating in art.gnome.org, and has a massive 3209 downloads (art.gnome = 2425 gnome look = 784).
Today, I just found something really cool, Frosty Grass is in a novel presentation video !!!!!!
Take a look at http://www.linuxedge.org/?q=node/58 it’s a demonstration of new rendering for gnome; fancy transparent windows, flipping desktops, all that cool stuff. As you’ll notice in the 1st few seconds of the video my art work is in the folder that gets moved,stretched and faded in the presentation !
As you can tell I’m over the moon about this, I think It’s well cool, I just wish I’d found it earlier
Inspiration hit me last night, how about using the gnome foot – which is a ‘G’ – as the ‘g’ in blog or blogger.
So here we have it… Gnome Blogger
The back grounds are transparent so you can mess with the colours, I’ve done a light and a dark one depending on your taste !
It looks like gallery2 has buggered up the screen shots , so you can see some at art.gnome or gnome-look:
Backgrounds – GNOME
It’s under different name, but it’s nice to see the art.gnome people like my simple beer wallpaper
I thought it was time to clean up my desktop, you know had the usual mess of temporary files & shotcuts ! So to complement my cleaner desktop I thought I’d make a new gnome wallpaper.
My first draft was very plain, but then I remember this bottle top lid, I think it’s just the right touch.
Hope you like them
So I’m having a small issue posting, I’ve been in casualty due to my right eye not working properly. (More about this when I can see)
This picture has been on the camera for a week or two, but the recent additions to art.gnome have inspired me to crop this up to a nice shot.
Tiz cold in here!
I’ve been meaning to finish this for a long time now, & I’ve finally finished integrating Gallery2 into my website. The pics section has a direct integration thanks to wpg2.
To celebrate I’ve thrown together a new wallpaper, it’s a sunset at southsea Pier, taken recently. Sunset pictures always make desktops, and this one has some subtle life in it too
Yummy Gnome Sunsetness!
I’ve released it too on gnome look.
Busy busy –
Just for dariorodt (See gnome-look ) I have done a copy of “I’d rather be at $HOME” without the text – enjoy !.
Download from Gnome-Look
Download from [LINICKX].com
I’ve been away for a couple of days, & it’s always nice to come $HOME to some good news !
My wallpaper “I’d rather be at $HOME” has been approved for art.gnome.org

Today I’d rather not be working So a desktop background has been inspired:
