Check out SmoothTasks, a branch of this. It's under active development.

If the author ever comes back: great plasmoid, I love how configurable it is compared to default plasma task viewer. Thanks! - Jan 10 2010

Looks great... but my desktop is a 4:3 aspect ratio...

Release a fullscreen version? - Jul 27 2008

Great, but would be much much improved if the black bar on the bottom matched the colour of each theme (e.g. blue for the blue theme). - Jun 27 2008

A full GNOME theme would be great! I use blender on Ubuntu Studio as well, so this would be perfect. Keep up the good work! - May 27 2008

Looks great, but could you release a version without the ubuntu text/logo on it? I'm using debian, and an ubuntu wallpaper, no matter how cool, would look odd... - Apr 19 2008

Actually, stuff like this is really easy to do in Blender, especially with the right materials. I'm no GIMP savant, but I think it would be quite difficult to do something like this in 2D. If you're interested in the greatness that is Blender:

Thanks to Paratron for the Ice material. It is awesome. - Mar 14 2008
Yeah, I know who "they" are. However, mostly they're talking about 'babe' ubuntu wallpapers (ie take someone else's photo and paste an ubuntu logo on top). Also, there is a debian version as well. If anyone wants a version for their operating system, just post a message here... I think I have the .blend somewhere, and new ones are ridiculously easy to make. - Mar 14 2008
I rendered this with the Blender internal. - Mar 07 2008
Hey, since 1920x1200 is widescreen(ish), do you want the ubuntu logo in the center, or off to the right? I'll post both right now, but I'm running out of space (750Kb max), so one of them will have to go.

Malaz. - Jan 06 2008
Sure. It only takes my comp about 5 min to render, so any resolutions you want will be uploaded. However, I don't have any webhosting, so they will all have to be included with the one allowed download, in a tarball archive. - Jan 06 2008
Thanks. I've made a debian version as well, now uploaded. - Jan 05 2008

Just so you know: "Forrest" is more accurately spelled "Forest". Horrifying brutalizations of the English language aside, this looks better than a majority of the content on this site (which admittedly isn't saying very much). - Jan 24 2008

According to babelfish:

I have as much liked your to wallpaper that I have created gdm, splash and boot for my ubuntu, if you want envio and you hang it in gnome.look, as you see it.

...yeah. Don't translate with babelfish. Ever. - Jan 08 2008

A dark grey background would be awesome. Possibly with blue(ish) text? Something along those lines would be great. As it is, it's pretty cool. - Jan 06 2008

Sorry for the multiple comments... I have no idea why it happened. I didn't press the submit button multiple times, I didn't retype it thrice. Odd. - Jan 06 2008

Cool, but I think it would look better with a simple black or blue backdrop, rather than a gradiant. Also, you should try doing the fluid sim with a bit higher res, as the fact that it is low(er) res is noticable. Overall, a really cool wallpaper. - Jan 06 2008

Agreed. Debian is the same as ubuntu in that it uses GNOME, but no-one objects to ubuntu wallpapers on GNOME-look. - Jan 05 2008

Odd... It's transparent over other windows and icons, but over black it's brown. Try making it white, since the 'transparent' parts are white. - Jan 05 2008
