Because of the questions I've received about the wallpapers on the themes page, I've added this page with a list. More wallpapers will follow soon...! For now here is a favorite collection of mine, I really love the wallpapers shipped with Elementary OS.

Elementary OS Luna wallpapers

Elementary OS Luna has an amazing collection of wallpapers, which are available for download from their launchad page.

Below are some small previews of what you can expect in their wallpapers package.

Fix slow rhythmbox startup in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr

Even with a recent SSD, starting up Rhythmbox would take a while. After a lot of searching I found what was causing it. Unfortunately I forgot where I found the answer, but anyway, all you have to go is navigate to Tools -> Plugins in the menu and disable the DAAP Music Sharing plugin. It seems like Rhythmbox waits for DAAP to timeout when starting up, so if you don't need it, just disable it. If you do need it.. I guess there's not much you can do except wait for it to start for now.
