    Could someone tell me where I get the ´´gadgets´ that show the status of the HDD, temperature etc?, I know there was a program called something like that, screenet .. but I saw it very outdated and it didn't even want to work .. I have Ubuntu 13.04 Thanks

  6.   Lovell said

    This super on 1, 2 and 8 wow! Yesterday I tried to install and configure openbox and flat: / in my installation all the things that the manuals take out did not come and if I added them in the install, it was a total failure, if someone made a manual from zero like this for noobs in openbox, thank you. Congratulations 😀 I hope to participate in May and be among the 10 as last year I was the 5th 🙂 greetings.

  10.   jormi jimenez said

  12.   Diego said

  13.   rocholc said

    As people work around here, they are very good !!!!!!

    All the desktops are very good but personally I liked more the 1,2,5 and 9 are interesting configurations and apparently without consuming many resources the 1 with openbox and 9 with kde are great I would like them to upload how to configure a similar desktop since I currently use openbox and it doesn't look like that, it hurts that gnome shell can't be configured so much.

    Yapa's friends are less liked than several desks, so what the hell do you see to choose them? if they use conky? Or because it doesn't make sense, it doesn't fit me and I'm sure they only review the most recent ones and not all of the month

  16.   Jonas Trinidad said

    Whoops! Stay in the room! I'm quite happy, I loved the first three places and also the 8 that for me was for the first places, but it's a matter of taste, next time I will try to take the first place ... Good luck to all.

  17.   Carlos said

    Very good all!
    It is striking that there is nothing from Gnome3 or Unity ... for a reason.

  18.   Trixi Three said

    Great! I stayed in Yapa
    I really liked the first desk and that of Byakuya Kuchiki. They were very cute!

  19.   adr14n said

    It worked for me to download the image from the desktop, then drag it to Google's "Image Search" and then click on "Similar Images"

  20.   Omar said

    Hello, Excellent desks

  21.   karlinux free said

    Very good yes sir

  22.   Javier Fernandez said

    I love them, they are great.

  23.   Giovanni Nateras Market said

    All the wallpapers were excellent, only they had to put the link to download all the winning wallpapers.

  24.   Jonas Trinidad said

    If it is a shame, so much that I like unity and gnome 3, but I did not participate because I could not move the dash ,,, They are not desks to customize but to work ... in the next competition I will participate and of course with the dash in the downstairs.

  25.   Carlos Marcano said

    All excellent. My favorites are 2,7 and 9.

  26.   Byyakuya kuchiki said

    Congratulations to all.!!! ^^ °!
