Description:

Since Compiz 0.7.6, desktop deformations are possible: Sphere and Cylinder. I cut a cylindrical projection of the earth into pieces so that it fits on the four sides of the cube and the caps. Just unzip the file and use Compiz-Fusion's ccsm to put the files in the right places.

Edit 1:
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:

http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?t=6199

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.

Edit 2:
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.

EarthDesktop is like god, in that, if it didn't exist, it'd have to be invented. ( A lil' Atheist humor. No offense intended to anyone)

I made my own version with political overtones. My first Linux artwork. Thanks for the source material and inspiration.

Do you mean that the poles are rotated wrong? Or that the rotation is ok, but the edges don't match?

yeah it helped :-) but it was not the answer. After a few minutes of searching I found this webside:
http://www.humus.name/index.php?page=Textures&&start=32

here you can get better pics than these are. And a lot more of them :-)
(--> probably someone could update the package here)

I'm using Ubuntu 8.10:
I had only to insert the pics normal into the wallpaper plugin (example:/home/schnecki/Pictures/skydome/erde/4.jpg) ! Don't forget to change the postione value: Position = scaled!

At the "Cube Reflection and Deformation" plugin you need these behaviours:
*Adjust top/bottom image
*Scale top/bottom image

If you don't get any pics, do following (thx to jeangui):
*enter "gconf-editor" into the editor of your choice
*go to: apps --> nautilus --> preferences
*put out the cross of "show desktop"
*reboot

Hope I could help you ;-)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
