My first shot at creating SVG files using Inkscape. Seeing as I use Gentoo GNU/Linux I thought it a fitting place to start for a wallpaper. Feel free to download the SVG files and edit them to your liking. I've included 1 with, and 1 without, the kicker background, plus a screenshot of what it looks like in conjunction with a tranparent Kicker and Taskbar V2.0.
Using: Mozilla Firefox, Konqueror, Torsmo, Kicker, Taskbar V2.0 applet, Clock applet, Pager applet, Devices applet, Kbiff, Kmix & Kopete
