If one were so inclined, that image is large enough to save, photoshop out the folder and save/convert it as an .ico file for use. I considered it but wouldn't want to do so and offer it without permission of the screenshot image holder.

Where'd you get those lovely icons for Linux?

The Window Manager:

http://enlightenment.org/


The theme:

http://exchange.enlightenment.org/theme/show/884

The cursor icons:

Extra wall papers from:

Which flavor of Linux do you run?  Enlightenment doesn't list Ubuntu, and that's what I have.

I might do just that, but I lack Photoshop...
Normal is something we've invented to keep out the demons and Gods and magic and monsters that live just on the other side of the "normal' world we've built for ourselves.

I am not familiar with this GIMP... What is it? Is it one of those things that is standard on most computers?

I spent some short time in photoshop and got the folder out, like Daemon suggested.

I put it in use immediately as you can see under the spoiler
:
Now I need to do something about my overall theme.

For those of you interested you can download the icon here. I did some minor changes to the overall look, i don't know if you will notice, but at least it is not a direct copy.

GIMP is short for GNU Image Manipulation Program. You can use it to process digital images and graphics. Some things you may do in GIMP is cropping, color changes, delete unwanted objects and convert file formats.
Its not something that usually comes standard with computers, but it is free to download.

And, now that I think about it, from www.gimp.org.  It is available on most platforms.

Right.. OK. Now I have yet another issue. I managed to convert my My Documents folder into the Steampunk image of DOOM, but the rest of the folders won't let me change them... I knew how to do this in XP, but Vista has gone and messed it all up. Any Vista users out there who can tell me how to modify non-desktop icons?

Alas, my computer refuses to install the icon modification program above. Perhaps I shall be able to find one on my own that Vista can tolerate... stupid Vista.

I had the same problem. I just searched cnet, and found Iconpackager, you may want to try that.
Note that it is only a 30 day trial, but it works great.

This has got to be one of my favorite threads.  STICKY!

Greetings
have dl the file its .rar how do I use the icons
regards

.rar is a somewhat-obscure compressed-archive format. WinZip might open it, but I'm not sure as I've never actually seen a .rar face-to-face.

7-Zip is even better (opensource too). Pretty much unpacks everything.

I have tried a lot of different unrar programs. But to agree with Daemon, 7-zip is best.

Everything working for you now?

Hello folks. I just found this forum when I was googeling for ways to make my desktop more steampunk. This is my result so far:

Found this a while ago and made it more wallpaper sized.

No idea who is responsible for the art.

Here's a screenshot of a customized desktop (WindowsXP) I created along with a few customized icons for Rocketdock. Rocket dock is an application launcher (ie. Stardock's Objectdock) similar to the cool app launcher found on Macs. This is also available as a download on Rocketdock or my deviantart account. http://inception8.deviantart.com

Rocketdock can be found here:
The dimensions for the wallpaper background are 1680x1050 widescreen which is included in the zip file if anyone decides to download it. Instructions are included.

Thanks for looking.

I'm relatively new to the greater scene at large and have a curious new interest in something I've know about only for a long long time as being 'a Jules Verne thing' and not as the coined term Steampunk. I'm a digital artist of sorts and I like to do artist things. So if I can add to the things available out there for everyone then hopefully that's one of my common goals. I'm also out of work...
