Hi BP,
I have the config file posted from the link above the screenshot. Also make sure you have opacity turned on in Bespin. That should get it working. :D Sorry can not be more specific since I am at work now. :wink:

Thanks, Marc. I'll check it out later, I completely understand about being at work. (I remember those days, and there are definitely times I wish I could refresh the memory.) I'm snagging podcasts before I switch to my Mint 12 KDE LiveUSB to try and get my external drive connected and get some music off my hard drive but if nothing else I'll snag the info to look at tonight when I won't have a live net connection to distract me.

Still have to tweak the menu tho, change apps and stuff. And looking for another wallpaper when I have some time.

Kozz, what desktop are you running in this screenshot?

This theme, especially the Conky setup, has become an inspiration to me. So I tweaked my Conky the same way. Still a work in progress:

Thank you! I just love the way you coordinate the colors in your windows and menus with the color palette of your wallpaper. I just don't have the eye for that. This friendly competition you've been having with mmesantos1 has been great! :D

LM12 (I wait until stuff is old!)

When I first install, I change the menu to an icon, add the desktop switch and fire up lastfm - that's all I do.

Some really nice themes in this thread :) Mine's just basic MATE!

Katze? Is that you? Why yes, yes it is me! :lol:

Pretty bare bones Cinnamint 13, as I'm still learning its features. I see that Conky has escalated into a thing of zomg!beauty that I will have to explore.. again :lol:

Cinnamon theme is Chocolatte, icon theme is Woodbuntu.

I have some more work to do on my Bespin before making this month's round of screenshots but I wanted to share a preview I posted on Facebook for a friend that showed me a beautiful shot of Dodger Stadium and downtown LA. I'll include a link to the wall when I make my proper screenshot post.
