The Great Desktop Desktop Switchoff Day 3

Today was a pretty good day. I walked home from school today using evince to read my current assignment. While I could also do this in KDE, it was the first time I had used evince. It's a really anorexic document viewer and lacks things like review tools that KDE's okular has but it is a good tool.

I've noticed that sometimes GNOME's icon theme randomly changes. Check out the screenshot below and notice that it randomly switches to using oxygen instead of mist. This is a system wide change, and I'm not exactly sure what triggers it :(

Found a nice cool feature that I may port to Plasma's clock applets:

The list of upcoming Tasks and Appointments is exceedingly cool, imo

Also, Felix helped me get my compiz config working in GNOME.

  • install compizconfig-backend-gconf
  • in ccsm, go to preferences
  • export your current ccsm settings
  • change from flat file to gconf based settings backend
  • import your ccsm .profile you created
  • ???
  • Profit!
