This animation describes the basics of changing desktop wallpapers, appearance and modifying the Whisker Menu and Panel behaviour in a simple format and file size. This was about the smallest I could go for practical use, while a decent 640x400 (50%) version came in at 348.2 kB.

This shows the desktop on a Dell laptop. The battery is practically dead and the key between h and k doesn't work, nor does home and end, or the touchpad. It also overheats a bit so I have located temp indicators top right for easy reference, along with a visual CPU graph to provide a hint when this might occur. It did however, connect to home wi-fi without any issues. Ideal for wallpaper cycling.



Conky Manager--

This corrected text being cut off the right hand side of CPU Widget.

-- Minimum Width 250

expands the Widget enough to avoid longer application descriptions causing the left percentage indicator to shift around and distort background temporarily, between refreshing (previous wallpapers have taken a second to refresh to new wallpaper when cycling automatically on this machine behind Conky Widgets, on this machine.....to my good desktop next to apply similar effects... :happy:

hello.
http://www.arborday.org/join/freebees/freebees.cfm
that is free pictures. next this is to find mx-14 in category Trees in Celebration online registry
http://www.arborday.org/join/tictim/registryBrowser.cfm
next this is to download the Trees In Celebration certificate pdf 1.5MB
https://shop.arborday.org/canvas/genera ... 13W2592123
no idea about terms of availability period of the certificate link. Online registry is permanent.
The pdf is too large for forum upload.

Some are giant native Eucalyptus regnans (world's tallest flowering tree as opposed to the Sequoias) but others look like European plantings, memorials (eg WW I&II) or other species, native or other.
