Here is a link to a very beautiful set of icons for you gnome/kde desktop:
On Fedora with Gnome-shell 3, its been long time that I was not able to get transparent window. So, finally I thought to spend some time to try to fix that. Finally got that fixed with all the configurations below in the conkyrc. Here the default color is set to LightSkyBlue but feel free to change that.
I hope this helps fedora community who is struggling to get transparent window. And here is the code :
own_window_transparent yes own_window_class Conky own_window_argb_visual yes own_window_argb_value 0 own_window_type normal own_window_colour LightSkyBlue own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
Here is a script that can help you set the proper envirionment to start a gnome-shell from one of the terminals.
#!/bin/bash - #=============================================================================== # # FILE: xenv.sh # # USAGE: ./xenv.sh # # DESCRIPTION: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/Debugging # # # OPTIONS: --- # REQUIREMENTS: --- # BUGS: --- # NOTES: --- # AUTHOR: Amit Agarwal (aka), firstname.lastname@example.org # CREATED: 09/14/2011 04:45:31 PM IST # Last modified: Wed Sep 14, 2011 04:45PM # REVISION: --- #=============================================================================== gnome_session=$(pgrep -u $USER gnome-session) eval export$(sed's/\o000/\n/g;' < /proc/$gnome_session/environ |grep DISPLAY) eval export$(sed's/\o000/\n/g;' < /proc/$gnome_session/environ |grep XAUTHORITY) eval export$(sed's/\o000/\n/g;' < /proc/$gnome_session/environ |grep DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS)
So, once you have done that you have the correct environment to use the X display and thus you can start the gnome-shell as well or do any other fancy thing that you want 🙂
