Please paste the wallpaper on google picasa..

https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?hl=en_GB&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fpicasaweb.google.co.uk%2Flh%2Flogin%3Fcontinue%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fpicasaweb.google.co.uk%252F&service=lh2&passive=true

so that others can see it.. The url you have given above requires user subscription before a user can actually see it..

OK it was incorrect pasting of url that did me in.. :) anyways sorry for that..

Its gnome environment (GNU Network Object Model Environment) the environment which is by default in ubuntu... with the gdesklets enabled..

To enable gdesklets you have to enable extra repositories,

To do that:

ref this article:

http://www.fsdaily.com/Beginners/How_to_enable_extra_repositories_in_Ubuntu_7-10_and_get_cool_stuff

and give the following command in a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal)

sudo apt-get install gdesklets

Bhavani Shankar.

It's Gnome, lower panel is Avant Window Navigator and the "text" on desktop is conky.

And black theme you can find at gnome-look.org (I think it's Murrina or Wii Black, but not sure...).
