    Neat. What build/version/whatever of Linux are ya'll using? I have an old PC box with right over 400MB of ram and a 1Ghz Celly that I feel like fiddling with with.

    I'm running ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy), i use that for my day to day stuff and dual boot with XP for games.

    Same here. I found Edgy was the easiest for me to setup.

    It took me a while to figure out how to take screenshots:

    desktop.jpg

    Then I figured out I did it the hard way =/.

    It's also Ubuntu :p

    Holy shit my H-scroll.

    Normally I wouldn't mind, but, and please don't take this the wrong way, but your second monitor is dull as dry shit.

    Can you just put a line break in to make this page a bit less annoying?

    I don't know what browser you are using so this may be irrelevant, but if it's Opera then hit CTRL+F11 and the h-scroll will be gone. Of course, it doesn't take care of the "dull as dry shit" problem though :P

    3200X1200 wallpapers are like Duke Nukem Forever.

    I've had the same wallpaper for like...9 months. If I have to look at it one more time, I'll throw up all over the place. No luck at Deviantart or the PA dump. Help.

    Make your own?

    Find a decent (and big) source image, open up Photoshop with a blank white canvas that's the right size and start playing.

    Every time varland posts his desktop, someone asks him what IRC program he is using :D I know, because I was one of them :(

    Now I know that he uses a quite complex method to get that on his desktop, whereas I just made mIRC look like that (It's in the OP, if you want to compare).

    Feh, it's not complex if you already have a linux server with ssh up and running.

    If you have to get a server, install linux and then set it up it starts getting more complex.

    I've got one that's 2560x1600, made of squares about 200x200 each. You might be able to re-arrange it to be the right resolution.

    However, it's not a typical wallpaper. I have no idea if you'd be at all interested in it.

    here is a little guide that i started off with, try this one out then move on to mine.
    http://foobar.lolwhat.org/

    hopefully thats enough to start off with

    here are a few updated bits of code for my config:

    ill be away from my main computer for a few days, so if you manage to get all thsi working let me know and ill get you the last update to that config.

    Foobar is intimidating, I got it to work with your posts :D
    Thanks for the help and <3 the foobar look

    I think I got everything to work. Thanks bb.

    Question:

    Is there any way to implement a search?
    Is there a way to save more than one playlist?

    yeah, i actually have another tab that i added that has the built in library browser and a playlist tab. ill post the updated config later this week.

    but here are some other plugins for browsing

    quick search:
    http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=44012

    playlist dropdown:
    http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=44703

    play list tree:
    http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=29435

    and heres a wiki of more components
    http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components_0.9

    :o
    Library tab?
    Now Playing, with the time and stuff, no slider :(
    The hearts, I used to use WMP and there were stars, do the stars add to the mp3 tag? Or is it a fresh thing for foobar?
    How do I make the foobar taskbar entry say Foobar, and not the current artist playing?
    If the numbers are out of order in the playlist, then it's gotta be the tags right?
    Is there a list of programs for tagging mp3's with album covers? Tag and Rename is a demo.

    <3 bbmartini for foobar.
    I don't know whether these things are minimal or complicated, I'm such a noobie :P

    Theme is CORE.VISUALSTYLE.
    Icons are the IconPackager set to match.
    Irc is mIRC with a self-tweaked theme for peace&protection.
    Gaugey things are a custom Samurize config.
    Trillian skin is TGE.
    Wallpapers were gotten from the Metroid thread.

    I think that covers it.

    I demand sources for the Brodo's wallpaper and Stover's VS. (Or at least a name I can google, for the latter.)

    And I demand to know why, after many others have agreed with me, and we have a cursed wallpaper dump, we still gotta ask every time someone posts something cool and hope they check back and feel merciful.

    I use Lclock for the windows clock (very nice and easy to use) and a skin called blackmesa2. Lclock can be found here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Enhancements/Clocks-Time-Management/LClock.shtml Not sure if that's the version I have, its been a really long time since I downloaded it and I just hung onto the install file.

    I found blackmesa2 on deviantart, via a former G&T desktop thread a long time ago. I can't seem to find it there now. If you can't find it, PM me your email and I'll send it to you (its a very tiny file, don't worry about bandwidth).
