Linux Beauty

sausagenmuff asked:

A video of my linux desktop (Atlantis),100% free for everyone on the earth.
Ok I’v been asked a million times how to do this so here it is sticky:
1. install linux
2. install compiz
3. enable 3d cube, wobbly windows..ect
4. set cube opacity slider BOTH to 25.
5. use a skydome and check off “animate”
heres a link to some i have made, on my server,
6. Install atlantis “fish” plugin
you can get it here:;a=snapshot;h=d3e913e8fd1da7ad77beedc364cdea582a6f730e;sf=tgz

(extract to your home dir, go into that directory inside a terminal, type “make” then “sudo make install”

whew.. that should be it.. everything else is just tweaking for days however you like it.

also since everyone is asking constantly,
the 1st song is SNES Donkey Kong Country (water level), and the 2nd Song playing is Arno Cost & Arias – Magenta

    haha yeah emshains, people are all like “bow before me for i am root, see me draw fire!”

    funny how the tiny inconsequential things about linux make people **** brix, when the REAL beauty of the architecture most people have no idea of.

  2. sausagenmuff Says:

    yes its gnome..
    top menus have nothing to do with gnome whatsoever.. the *** “mac style” top menu is the default gnome style in some distros like ubuntu. if thats what you mean, but’d change it right away.

    Microsoft got it right in my opinion with windows 95, a nice simple single menu bar at the bottom.. (K.I.S.S keep it simple stupid)

    gnome has no limits though, top, bottom, side, floating, you can have 20 menu bars if it floats your boat.

    what display manager is that? it looks like gnome, but no top menu

  4. sausagenmuff Says:

    the instruction are in the upright corner (click more info).. but the links are broken now.. google for the atlantis plugin…
    the name of the song is also there…

  5. emshains Says:

    It’s just an effect with compiz, no special linux kernel needed :)

  6. Gamelivead Says:

  7. banhmr9001 Says:

  10. cybertooth49 Says:

    that first song is from Donkey Kong for the SNES isn’t it. I used to play that game tons when I was younger, and got my SNES back only a couple of weeks ago.

  14. sausagenmuff Says:

    yes there are hundreds and hundreds of distros (not versions). this is ubuntu. but it wont look like this out of the box if thats what your going for

  15. Glennormothra Says:

    Any version of Linux can pretty much do anything the rest can, if you put the time into it. Linux can be pretty time consuming.
