Do you use a wallpaper(Desktop background)? why or why not.

Kinda late to this, but yeah I use one very simple and undistracting background I found on simpledesktops.com: dark hexes

eh, it is not my taste, but they are not that bad.

No. I use EXWM, and while it’s technically possible, it’s not very practical. You need to set transparency in the Emacs frame and then use a wallpaper setter. I much prefer the solid color of a regular Emacs buffer.

Edit: Tried it out. It’s not too bad.

Well… Sort of?

I have used this theme for couple days;however, it does not looks good on 4k display and icons are barely recognazable.

While my monitor isn’t 4k, you can upscale everything (in my 2x upscale made things too small, but if I had a 4k monitor I certainly would have done that)

Is this fvwm, or something similar? It’s a great looking desktop! :D

Thanks for sharing! Finally, a real reason to use XFCE.

I use Wallpaper Engine, or rather the Wallpaper Engine KDE plugin

No, just grey. I want to focus on what’s in the windows.

Same. In the past I tried doing the whole wallpaper thing but it always became a distraction.

I do, but I almost never see it because all of my programs are maximized.

“maximum effort”

Effort, right! That thing I’m supposed to occasionally do…

Yeah, KDE comes with an automatic wallpaper changer with the “image of the day”, usually Bing or NASA are good picks.

No, normally I get fed up with a wallpaper very quickly, thus it remains grey.

xsetroot -solid black was about as much effort as I wanted to put into how my desktop looks. And besides, I couldn’t be a 1337 hax0r if I used something more friendly looking :P

No. Still have the default xfce4-wallpaper for Manajaro. Never see it anyways. Always have browser open on all three monitors.

Yes, and without any icons on it.

What is this?

Haha some desktop background I saw on here.

It’s Kim Jong Un on a cool looking industrial platform mounted to a hydraulic extender inspecting a reanimated Lenin with a reanimated Karl Marx in the background. The reference is to Juche necromancy, which is used as an internet meme for all the people in the DPRK who are claimed to have been murdered but then they turn up fine. The joke is that they’re being reanimated by juche necromancy.

I use Sylvia Ritter’s speed paintings as my wallpaper, set to change automatically every hour to help me keep track of time.

I use Variety to change my wallpaper each day. I have a wallpaper folder with a bunch of wallpapers, so it doesn’t repeat to often. I (mostly) only pick wallpapers that are not to distracting.

Seconded. Variety is fantastic. :)

Yes. Refuse to elaborate.

Why?

Why did nobody recognise the meme?
