Reader Oliver wanted to make his Linux Mint desktop look as much like a Mac as possible so others would find it easy to use. Given some of our previous Linux featured desktops, we know it wasn’t tough, but the end-result still looks great. Here’s how it’s all set up.
To submit your desktop to our Desktop Showcase the way Josh did, just post it to your Kinja blog with the tag “desktop showcase” and we’ll see it. Now, here’s what you’ll need to recreate this one for yourself:
That’s all there is to it. Oliver is running Linux Mint, but we imagine you could use these tweaks anywhere, in any version of Linux that you see fit. The end result is an OS that’s not terribly overhauled or reworked, but still looks like anyone could sit down at it and get to work. If you have questions about it, or want to know more about how he set it all up, head over to his Kinja blog (linked below) to ask your questions.
Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us! Post it to your personal Kinja blog using the tag Desktop Showcase or add it to our Lifehacker Desktop Show and Tell Flickr pool. Screenshots must be at least at least 640×360 and please include information about what you used, links to your wallpaper, skins, and themes, and any other relevant details. If your awesome desktop catches our eye, you might get featured!
