Wow, thanks for all those links! For now, I have decided to go with the chibi stellvia wallpaper. (It's light hearted and not to provocative.. so I will actually be able to work lol ). I just coloured the background dark blue and removed the words cause it's too bright for me.. hurts the eyes lol.

lol

BTW, throughout this desktop thread, it's nice to see so many open source users!

So far, I recall that I've seen Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, Gaim, XChat, OpenOffice.org, LiteStep and probably more! Nice Those programs are great

Gnome rocks? XFCE4 rocks too.. Go GTK2!! lol

Well, for now, here's my XFCE4 desktop.. ok.. so I'm not the greatest graphics artist, but for now, I'll take it lol.

Oh, and not really my desktop, but this is what I'm using for my Grub boot screen:
(Boot manager for choosing between Linux or Windows)

Hmm, lots of good stuff at http://www.peorth.com.ar.. will have to go through that too too many choices..

I found it on someone's deviantart page, so I'm not really sure if it's from a series.

Windows XP, eh? Same with my school. But I wrote this to get around it:
Code:
Private Declare Function SystemParametersInfo Lib "user32" Alias "SystemParametersInfoA" (ByVal uAction As Long, ByVal uParam As Long, ByVal lpvParam As String, ByVal fuWinIni As Long) As Long
Const SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE = &H1
Const SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER = 20
Const SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE = &H2

Private Sub Main()
    Dim FileName As String
    Dim X As Long

    FileName = Command$ '// eg, Z:\geneshaft.bmp

    X = SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0&, FileName, SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE Or SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE)
    MsgBox Command$, vbInformation, "Changed"
End Sub
The above code is Visual Basic.. It may be possible to use this code in Visual Basic for Applications (Built into MS Office, Word, PowerPoint, etc).

Just pass the file name to this program and it should set it as your background. I use it, and it works.

In my case, I stuck a short cut to this in my profile's startup directory so it is re-run every time I login.

Your network may be setup differently than ours, so I'm not sure how it will work out, but it's worth at shot Just don't tell the administrator that I did this lol

Basically what this program does is it directly access the Windows API (application programmers interface) and runs the function that the Windows Display Properties dialog would probably use to change the wallpaper. However, only access to the Display Properties dialog is locked.. (at least in my case) so if I tell Windows to change the wallpaper directly (by accessing the Windows API), it does it.

Heh, rcxAsh, I think that hobobaggins meant that his school WOULDN'T, not couldn't allow wallpaper changes. But that's nice also. Ugh, I haven't been able to change my desktop, cuz I changed it like 3 or 4 days ago. I'll post when I change it, but 'till then I'm away my friends.

lol, well, maybe someone will find it useful lol But at my school, trying to access the display properties dialog would give you a message informing you that you don't have the priviledges to or something... Which is why I wrote that program..

And since we all have personal profiles, my wallpaper is my wallpaper. No one else sees it except for me. Once I change it, a teacher probably won't run across it and be able to undo it. (cause I'd be using the computer then.. and most teachers wouldn't care.. heck, even the network administrator saw my desktop and didn't say anything).

Though of course.. don't want to get an echii wallpaper for that.. cause the person sitting next to you would probably notice... or worse, a teacher walking around lol.. and then I'd probably be forced to change it.

or other people would point and laugh... at the person next to you, who is the only person in the room not to have one.

i agree. ecchi walpapers attract too much attention.
