I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours – well, actually, I’ll show you mine anyway 🙂

My Plasma Desktop at work

Thomas Hannigan suggested on kde-promo the rather good idea of making a flickr group to showcase some of the ways you can build your own ideal workspace using KDE’s Plasma Desktop. This can act as a store of various ways people have built working environments different to the ones you normally see (that could be handy for us in our own promotional activities) and also, being on flickr, can help expose KDE software to an audience that might not be aware of us.

So, if you’ve done something a bit different with your workspace, please upload the picture to the group. You can be super helpful by applying a Creative Commons license to it so that we can re-use it easily any time should we want to do so. CC-by-sa or something even more permissive would be ideal.


I just noticed on the thread relating to this on kde-promo: there is also a screenshot thread on the KDE Forums which is a great additional (or alternative if you don’t have a flickr account) place to post your screenshot.

    Is there any way to do this if you don’t have a flickr account?

  • Stu says:

    Unfortunately, I don’t think so as far as flickr is concerned (I just signed up for an account to post mine).

    There is however a screenshot thread on the KDE Forums, which would also be a great place to put them. In fact posting in both would be ideal.

    The classical comment: Where do I find the wallpaper that you have there?


  • Vikram says:

    Nice desktop! What plasmoid is on top left corner? Thanks.

  • Stu says:

    @ Albert: it’s from wikimedia commons.

    @ Vikram: I’m guessing you mean the world clock? If so, that’s what it’s called. I don’t think I had to install it separately. It uses Marble (I think) so may be part of kde-edu. Otherwise the thing in the very top left is just the Fedora icon that launches the menu.

    Thanks Stu, it was the marble plasmoid I was after. Thanks for the update.
