Hi all,
I reckon most of us spend a fair amount of time behind the screen. And even if we are not working on the computer, the system is still on.
What do you use as wallpaper?
I'll guess some use the default ones, provided by the OS, others are creative and use there own pictures as a "window" into cyberspace.
Let's see some of yours if you like.
I kick of with the one I am using, right now. Some editing using GIMP resulted in this:




Hope to see yours also.
Martin.
Best regards,

Martin.

I currently use this one :-




I find it relaxing and it reminds me of where I want to be (on the water)

The shortcut icons also fit on well without detracting from the image.

The thing this reminds me of is how I tried to get Lightroom to install and run on Ubuntu. It installed fine using WINE and ran to the point where it wanted to load a catalogue. It would not let me do so. It kept telling me the file cannot be opened because "No write access or network folder" (and more interesting bits).

As for my current desktop...




1.6:1 crop @ 1920x1200 though not the 1.5:1 image which is displayed above.

Hi Tyr,
As a former user of LR, I had the same problem. As you can see I use Bibble now. And I am very impatiently waiting for the release of Bibble 5. Which is due to arrive within 3 months. What I have seen and heard from it, it will outperform LR on every aspect. And of course it comes as a full Linux(deb) distro.
Martin.
Best regards,

Martin.

What sign language this that Martin? It's not BSL (British Sign Language), does Holland have its own sign language?

Yes - every country has it's own sign language, just as they have their own spoken language. A friend of my son is training as an official Dutch sign language translator at the moment - a long and difficult course, even though she is fluent in signing due to two deaf parents.
I think Martin's picture is probably American Sign language though.

Really could do with being standardised. If it were deaf people would find it much easier to communicate internationally than anybody else.

It's taken the deaf communities long enough to have sign language officially recognised as a 'language', they are not going to give it up without a fight! They are all quite proud of their individuality.
