Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has or know where to get some cool looking PPC/Linux, or even better, PPC/Gentoo desktop wallpapers? My iBook is so cool looking with Gentoo on it, a PPC related wallpaper would just be icing on the cake 8)

look for slackintosh wallpapers (so its not actually gentoo, but the slackintosh logo it a tux, with a pipe, and his front is the macos finder pattern)

the only thing slack about it is the pipe, the rest is pure tux :)

If someone skilled in graphics design made something like that it would be awesome!

The Slackintosh and the MacInTux Logos can be found here:
http://harrison.k12.co.us/~gwalters/webcritic/reports/images.html
http://www.decoulon.ch/pbydl/macintux.jpg

Then there is also the old MkLinux logo:

But I have yet to see a real wallpaper made with a logo like this...

Take a look at http://www.sadeem.net/tux.html, there are some nice looking backgrounds (and icons) on that site (the backgrounds are ver similar though). It's umm.. a kind of "tux" in the shape of the Apple logo.. well, for me hard to describe, just go take a look.

You do need Flash to access the site though. I use MOL, and accessed it with Safari after installing the Flash plugin. Normally i'm against the use of Flash, but i have to admit that the Flash intro on that site is kinda.. cute. I like his work.

(IMHO, those backgrounds look 1000 times better than the Slackintosh...)

Nothing PPC specific but there's lots of Gentoo stuff over at www.kde-look.org. Here's an example of a search:

10k1,

Both your links are the same and don't seem to point to an actual theme/wallpaper... ?

You can get übercool Gentoo stickers at: http://www.cafeshops.com/cp/store.aspx?s=gentoolinux
For leet stickers to stick onto the glowing apple of your powerbook look no further: http://www.hackerstickers.com/products/stickers.shtml
They have pretty cool "Hackintosh", "Wardriver", Linux Penguin and BSD Daemon stickers. They even give away stickers for free if you link to their site.
For an ordinary Tux sticker look here: http://tuxsticker.ptaff.ca/step1/

Wow, those are really nice, thanks a lot for the link! 8)
Since this flash does not work properly under gflashplayerx86 & qemu and loading up mol just for that site is a lot of work I'm taking the liberty to post the direct links to the files.

Index directory of all the cool backgrounds: http://sadeem.net/wp/

Index directory with zipfiles of all icon sets: http://sadeem.net/linux

While browsing kde-look.org I also found these:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=6352
Mac'Larry - Gentoo's mascot inside an Apple Cinema Display. Note how the Apple logo on the display frame has been replaced with the Gentoo logo.

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7023
OS X logo with a cute penguin inside

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7023
"Mac is better on Linux but Windows" with a penguin hugging an apple (though I like the wallpaper the blatant mistakes in grammar and wording make this rather unusable...)

Have fun,

Sweet! Thanks for that link! I've been wanting a Gentoo stainless steel cup for a while, but they never seem to have it at the Gentoo store.

Some really good links in this thread! I'm glad I asked! :)
