Current Desktop

Click me to get the original!

So this is my current and very lovely desktop. Some info:

Antergos Linux using KDE Plasma 5.13, with the Dark Breeze colour theme applied. The wallpaper is from Wallhaven, a worthy successor to the defunct Wallbase. I don’t think the author named it, sadly. I love when they have names.

I prefer a vertical right-hand task bar. Vertical because it makes logical sense when browsing websites that only use a narrow strip in the middle of your screen – like this very blog! Right-hand because I tend to focus left first, English being my native language. The only drawback I’ve found for this is when you need to see the names of the windows/programs you are working with before you hover your cursor over the icons. At work, where I often have multiple Excel windows and other applications open I use the traditional horizontal/bottom setup.

My neatness-brain very much enjoys how the clock on the desktop sits precisely in the middle of that diamond shape. 🙂 Here is a good place to be if you also have a neatness-brain.

A neat little feature of KDE Plasma I really want to bring your attention to is what happens bottom right when you hover your mouse over the clock at the bottom of the task bar. If you set different time zones in the settings they appear here. Mine are set for all of my favourite people in the world, wherever they may be (Awww) so I know when to start annoying them. I’m UK based so my timezone defaults to London though that’s not the city I live in.

Have a lovely day everyone!
