Here's my latest desktop, found a nice picture here and made it my background. Not much else has really changed, 'cept I'm using autocrosser's nicer weather icon set in the weather extension.

Wish I knew how to do that. I only have the notification icons to tell whether the net's connected or not. There's a network monitor applet in Synaptic, but it doesn't change colour to match the Orta theme.

Here's where you go to change the update manager icons. As you can see I changed mine.

Cheers I was wondering that as well, it was the only icon that didn't fit until now :)

Thanks! It's a shame you can't change the colour scheme of that particular set of MintUpdate icons, but other than that, it suits the Clarity icon theme perfectly.

I like the background and tried making a tile from your screenshot, but it did not work out so well because the borders of the tile are noticeable. Is this wallpaper available someplace to download?

Thanks,

Sorry, but they weren't the same shade of orange. More brownish, actually. But thanks for trying to fix the problem. I ended up getting the dark grey version of the update icons, and changing the panel and menu to the light colour; it's worked a treat!

If you knew what the color HEX # was I could match it.

I fix old family photos for fun so icons are nothing to recolor. :)

Could not remember the name of the wall but I have a copy of it so you can download. :D
