Use to just hate KDE back in 2006-2008 and used Gnome before I dropped linux and used Windows last 4 years.
But being back last 3 months and trying different distro's and Loving Cinnamon.

But Gave Mint KDE another whirl and have to say I'm impressed tho a bit overwhelmed by the bewildering array of settings and such. Biggest Plus for me. Is can Now have my apps open up how I want them to in size & position on my dual displays.

Always a big bugg-a-boo with me was the constant bickering back and forth between the Window Manager's dev's & Applications dev's of who was responsible for maintaining and saving last position & size on desktop.

And still no resolution on all the flavors except KDE. A Big Kudo's! to KDE for not caring who is suppose to be responsible and went ahead and did it for user as what they needed.

Yipee! Another KDE user and advocate. Yeah, I really like the ability to predetermine where and to what size any of my programs will open. So flippin convenient not to have to drag a window out of the way. Hey, KDE 4.10 in about a week.

I love your dark theme. What window decoration/style/color setup are you using? I've tried several dark color sets only to find that in Firefox or something that isn't KDE I get weird things happening such as black text against a black background that I can't figure out how to fix.

Well Firefox using a dark grey persona. For rest of desktop Settings >Application Appearance>Cleanlooks Widget style.
On Colors Scheme is Obsidian Coast then on Colors. You can adjust all your color parameters for background and text,etc...
Active and Inactive Text,etc...

Icons used where Oxymentary and Gtk configuration was oxygen-gtk.

The latest update done today 12/27/2013 removed Gnucash and when I try reinstalling it I get a notice to fix broken packages. When I try and fix broken packages via the synaptic manager I get....

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
