Is it sad that I shut down my system by logging out of my user account first so I can stare at the login screen before starting the shutdown process?


Could it be... ok... first... what's going on with your login screen... or... should I say... you're staring at what... or who ??

Could it be a serious... ok... second... sad, is go through life without loving... or... sad, is never tell those you loved that you love them...

Could it be a serious symptom of... I'm sorry, I'm no doctor...hahaha

Zitch...sad it isn't for sure... now weird... hmmm... it all depends in what you're staring... hahaha

Well I'm not a doctor.......but I'll pretend to be one.

Stick with the LSD and then watch 5 Centimeters Per Second on Blu Ray.

It'll be like some other discovery of the movie you think you know.

But that's just the doctor's order.

Hmmmmmmm.......now that I think about what I've said......I think I'll write out the same perscription for me.

It would be this one... Wink  

Seriously, I'll probably start making more.  Nice thing about the GDM login screen is that it can actually rotate between different themes.  I'd figure a string of Makoto Shinkai-related themes should do the trick...

Did some update to that original login theme and made a couple new ones from different shots.  Here's what they look like:

(Warning, you should be able to click on these images to see the original-sized screenshot, but they might be big and slow to download on slower connections)

Since Ubuntu 10.04 used a newer version of GDM (a linux login manager), those themes I created above don't work anymore, but I did figure out how to change the background image of the login screen; it now looks like this:


Yes, the laptop itself is named Kanae.  I wonder where I got that from?  Wink

My actual desktop after login doesn't feature Shinkai images, though.  I thought those would be too distracting, so I created a rotating set of space-based background.  The following is an example of what it looks like right when I login this laptop:


One of the best feature of Linux has been the use of multiple "workspaces" (kind of like Apple Mac OS X's Spaces, but not just limited to 4 spaces and unix-like systems have had this concept since at least the late 90s). With my workload, I often find I need 8 or so workspaces to organize my work, and this includes 2 physical monitors. I've ended up using 9 workspaces in a square formation; the following is an example shot while I was working:
