Have been using kde Mint since 3.0 and I want to congratulate you folks on a fine release. My clients and customers get this distro 90 percent of the time so I do hope that equates to donations and help for your fine effort.
There are two debs I need help with. One of the most popular styles in my repertoire is metal4kde. It is available in rpm format and the guys over at Mepis have rolled it to work with 7.0. Alien will do the conversion but it while it shows up in all the appropriate folders and files, it is AWOL from the styles menu in the KDE Themes Manager and I can't get it to work. I have made a link for it because the file upload limits for this site are too small.
It is a remarkable style and I don't see why pclinuxos should be the only distro out there to have it. I have had other community members state that baghira was designed to take this style's place, but it does so poorly and doesn't come close to the sharp and beautiful metal look that metal4kde brings to the desktop. I just tried to attach a screenshot of what it looks like installed on kde but if I reduce it down any more to meet the restrictions of the forums, you won't be able to see it. You can see it clearly here. http://www.lobby4linux.com/images/metalshot.png Any help with in getting this rolled into a mint deb would be greatly appreciated.
As well, there is a fantastic new mouse tool/gui that I saw demonstrated earlier today on a friend's computer but unfortunately, the deb for kubuntu doesn't work. I am supplying the link to that article/file so you can see just how cool this gui hack is. People with exotic pointers or a mouse will appreciate the work that has gone into helping the Linux user who has struggled to map his mouse buttons. http://www.ollisalonen.com/btnx/
