Hello all, I'm AJ

28 yrs old, I'm from the Caribbean (Trinidad &Tobago to be precise)
New to Mint of course, I decided to try it after migrating from Ubuntu, Ilke the interface etc. Would love to continue using it as my main OS. I would also like to support the community and create some artwork, starting with icons. I don't know where to start though. I'd probably need a list or something of all the stock icons, then i'll move on to the 3rd party apps. This will be a long term project of mine, as long as I have the time :) Eventually I'd like to start theming as well but icons come first i guess.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello AJ,
Welcome to Mint Forum
New icons and themes are always welcome :P
These links may be useful

Another idea is to find a theme or icon set you like which works on your system,make a copy of it and open it up and explore it to see how it all fits together,then have a try at customising it,starting with something simple and progressing from there.
Have fun
