Somebody didn't pay attention to a previous post of mine
I ended up taking an easier route. In the /etc/skel/ folder I added a "lastwallpaper" file with the default wallpaper data. Everytime feh is used to change the background, the "lastwallpaper" file is automatically updated to reflect the change. Easy and effective.

Try seeing if you can set the font DPI to 96, it seems to make GTK render a lot better, also, have you provided
tools for changing the GTK theme etc. ? (OpenBox users use lxappearance).
There are some significant changes from a year ago, and the mcs-manager is no longer a valid option when dealing with current xfce stuff. As a result, "xfsettingsd" is running in the fluxbox startup file, and I edited the "xfce4-settings" package to reflect the defaults I wanted. This way, the gtk options can be set through the xfce-appearance-settings which comes up in the menu and through mintConfig-fluxbox. It took me a few ticks to figure this one out, but it works fantastically well and eliminated the need for me to bog down the system with an additional gtk theme changing package. One thing I've tried my best to do is to eliminate system redundancies as much as is possible (major exception here being the terminal emulator, tilda is the terminal that comes up from the menu, but alt+F1 will give you xterm).

She's complete as far as I can tell (at the moment). There are only six packages that have been messed with internally, the rest of everything has been adding and removing stuff. I kept a list of every single package that was installed into or purged from Mint 8 to get it where it is right now. I'm going to upload the .iso for Clem tomorrow and hopefully we can push hard and have it ready to go in the shortest time possible. I'm hoping it goes over well as it's a well polished and well featured distro as far as I can tell (for Fluxbox, anyway).
EDIT: The only thing I'm really needing to do is to install it somewhere and make sure it works as well as an installed system, versus just a live CD (probably going to do this tonight).
