Description:

I simply GIMP'd Mr. kubista's EarthDesktop (http://compiz-themes.org/content/show.php/EarthDesktop?content=84070) with red and black, taking Anarchism global.

Keep in mind that this was my first real contact with any GIMP level image editor. If it's terrible, you know why.

Also keep in mind that, because I already made sure that like 99.9% of it is one of two colors, it'd be pretty simple to change the colors as you see fit.

To optimize enjoyment, be sure to use the Compiz wallpaper plugin.

Now, here is some relevant information, as provided by Mr. kubista:

Many commenters don't know how to put four different wallpapers on four different sides of the cube. Here's a link to one of the methods:

My package doesn't contain an installer. Just untar/unzip it and put the files somewhere on your harddisk. Then, open up your Compiz configuration application (ccsm, probably) and point to the right images.


The image used isn't that detailed. If you find a better one, you can do the same trick with the GIMP. Just be sure it is a cylindrical projection (a rectangular (2:1) shot with huge poles). Then copy the top 25% into a new picture and do Filters>Distorts>Polar Coordinates. You might want to keep this open, because you need to rotate it to fit the middle parts. Now do the same for the bottom 25%. This gives you the cube caps.

When everything goes well, you're left with a 4:1 middle part. Just cut it into four equal pieces. Now you're stuck with square (1:1) desktop images, so you might also try to make desktop images with the right aspect ratio. This however results in bigger polar pieces and distorts the globe texture. Feel free to experiment and post me the right way to slice'em.
