thanks so much! I still use this desktop and setup to this day... almost been a year and I'm not even sick of it yet. I have added a few more elements to meet my daily needs, but it doesn't clutter the desktop which is most important. Thanks again!

Hi is it ok to use this to advertise something I made with geek tool? Its the same wallpaper, similar setup but I have @gotteric's Mnml GeekTool Batt Indicator [link] and instead of a bar, I have a rainbow that shrinks and grows depending on the battery :D

Do you have the PNG of the grass/tree by any chance? I'm having trouble pen-tooling it. And the magic selection tool makes the edges furry =(

I'm sorry for the delay in my reply. last two weeks of school for the semester and I've been slammed with projects.

I've added the .png file to the description for resolutions of 2560 (original), 1920, 1680, 1440 and 1280.

I hope one of these is the resolution you needed. :)

Thank you so much! I'm actually 1366, but I made it work by editing out the tree of the main Enlightenment background and then oversizing the grass/tree PNG.

Your desktop is a fantastic idea. When I have some time, I'm going to scour InterFaceLift for myself to find a similarly appropriate wallpaper to do this with.

Good luck in your studies!

Thank you. You're way too kind. :) Yes, Imogen Heap is amazing! And I can't take all the credit for this concept, as mentioned in my description, but I saw the potential in this particular wallpaper and couldn't resist doing a modification. I really like the way it looks and I'm glad you like it. :) Thanks again!
