Changed My Desktop

I was browsing several tabs @ the same time of looking for a new wallpaper, saving a lot for later review, I eventually found on, section "anime", sub-section "anime babes" this wonderfull drawing which I edited for color channels using the Gimp (Tools/Color Tools/Hue-Saturation). I can't post a link since they change their index all the time, probably on the purpose of forbidding pepole to link ressources to their server too often. Author is Unknown, unfortunately.

You are aware of the Multiple Deskops System on Linux, right ? if not, browse below for my previous entries on the topic.

This one above is more or less the original one, I only enlighted the background a bit.

Full Black & White on Light Background

Black & White the Dark Way

This one is my RGB version: Red, Green, Blue...

Original Body on Black & White back

The Settings aren't finished yet, but I enjoyed quite a change in look on my screen: see below.

Actually, it all came from, where I saw this wallpaper used in a BlackBox theme by jimmyblack. If you run BlackBox or FluxBox, enjoy:

Lots of fun.

OffTopic: If you google around "Manga Wallpaper", you'll end up with lots of porn stuff. For a bit of first-hand experience, I am looking for this since a while ago, and, given the childish nature of mangas drawing, you'll understand some stuff comes borderline... If not totally pedophillic. I am happy to report here that I found really shitty stuff through, reported it both to & the three first watchdogs I found on the internet, and yes, this website was now a deadlink one month later when I resumed my searches on the topic.
I am nothing of a netCop, but I guess anyone around here got its limits.

Enlightenment, Ubuntu Latest

Seems I can't get to run Enlightenment on my SuSE 93 desktop. I tried downloading the highly fashionnable DR17 &, yes, compiling it myself without success... Forget me when it comes to self-compiled stuff: Never works with me. So, LATER I found that Enlightenment was available, both in DR16 & 17 flavour, in the "Package Manager" (this tool dedicated toinstal & remove software on linux). Now, I know my package manager has some flaws in the way it addresses & updates the servers holding the softwares, but yet, It looks just as easy as click on "Install Package". Well, I bet that without any knowledge on how to remove the half-installed previous attempt, it cannot work in any way.

More of my mistakes: the lates release of DR16 & 17 are suppose to co-exist peacefully, so I tried installing both. No Way.

I have deleted anything Enlightenment 17-related on the hard disk, installed DR16 only from the package manager, and now Enlightenment do not show up on the login/choose your session type screen. I'll try uninstall-reinstall later on. This tastes like Windows, doesn't it ?

On the Testing Drive, I tried Ubuntu latest, the 6.10 "edgy-something", also with Enlightenment DR16. Worked OK, as usual with this f**cking way of releasing a new version every 6 months I spend some hours configuring the system to my taste, ten tried to truly work - for that, I needed this Package Manager again (called Sybaptic in Debian distributions): Let's have true fun here, this dumb soft tried to access it's sources for the softwares on... 127.001.001, which is my computer intenet address... Sure, I wasn't able to download much...
