Just mount your trophies on the desktop and the special lady never gets to complain about the replicas again. Pretty sure duck dynasty will follow suit next season.
Pack em in snow!

Simple and nice! What else a newbie could ask?

After playing around for a long time with a second tint2 panel until I got it just right as a dock, I decided to try out Plank. Turns out it uses barely any memory (still sub 100 at boot) and looks decent without compositing on (looks even better with, but my old machine gets a little slow that way). Also, after seeing a bunch of posts on /r/unixporn of people using dzen2 in their panels, I put my conky up on tint2 and it turned out pretty decent. The other adjustment is replacing the ClipIt systray icon with something more fitting, since it seems to be missing from the dark Faenza pack.
@ DebianJoe: ^ A+ for Harley Quinn. I made this wallpaper and conky a while back based on Harley Quinn. http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 47#p287547
Anyway, just killin' time today with this screenshot. (Pun intended.)

IIRC Plank is based on Vala. To install I just followed the guide below, installed dependencies, added the PPA for precise ( deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ricotz/docky/ubuntu precise main ), updated bamf to the version in the PPA, installed plank, then unchecked the PPA to avoid any potential problems. I've had it installed for a week and so far no issues. It's got all the stuff I like from Docky but without the massive black bar around it when compositing is off. If I turn on compositing, the theme I'm using makes the icon background fully transparent and the black bar is only around the "indicator lights" below the icons, but compositing is iffy on my old hardware, so it looks good enough without. RAM usage is 3-4 MB more than when I used a second auto-hiding tint2 panel on the bottom as a launcher dock, but now I have task management and launcher in one, which I like better.
I figured I'd share my normal Debby/XFCE desktop too, so you can laugh at my obsession with Harley. Unlike guys with anime waifu's, I've got an unhealthy obsession with American comics. Luckily, my wife is a Marvel fan...so not a problem with her. I've got Harley, she's got the Hulk.

@ DebianJoe: ^ Must be a bad image link. I can't open the attachment.
This was my original Harly Quinn #! wallpaper. http://postimage.org/image/eao7w6ljd/
Speaking of "the wife", the wallpaper I made and posted today has a shorter lifespan than a Mayfly. (She doesn't mind what she calls "cartoon" women, but today's and the one above...not a chance.)

@Gaspode. Changed the URL to a different file server in the original. I could see the last one on here, but I couldn't see it on my other laptop. Perhaps you should take a few days to post a bunch of Abercrombie models on your desktops...after that, your wife might welcome the ladies back.

Cool wall. Looks like one of those guys from Silent Hill.
I have only been using #! for 3 days and just learned what a tiling wm was last night so it isn't perfect yet.
I must say, I am loving it though. This is my desktop setup, although I did most of the configuration files on an old laptop I am also working on.
I love the clean new look.
AntiWM -> Xterm-> Gnu/Screen -> Emacs -> Emms -> lynx
sxiv -> suitable logo for antiwm
I'm finding this whole anti WuxMedia thing going a bit far now Ivo
