That's the newest spin with the default wallpaper. I like the speed and it's only using 125 MB of RAM at start up! It's light, fast and because it is up to date my system does not freeze up.

Breakdown:
KDE style, decoration and icons are all Bespin.
Color Scheme is a tweaked DustGreen
Bespin preset is a tweaked H Preset
Plasma theme is Opaquity
Wallpaper is Light River Green
Font is Droid Sans
Wow very nice :D I hope we get a vote on the default KDE Theme for the next release of Mint KDE :mrgreen:

I've been trying to compile the icons for bespin but never with much luck :roll:

Thank you mmesantos1 and Carl :)

I saw the Plasma theme in my feed reader (It was recently submitted to KDE-look)... I instantly liked it and thought I should do something with it. Carl, you are not too far off. I was going for a Mint Gnome kind of look... Dark panels, menu and toolbars with lighter window background... and of course a healthy dose of green :P

Carl, you can grab the Bespin icons from here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6810192/Bespin-Black.tar.gz .

Thanks shane :D but your post inspired me to go and delve deeper into the errors I was getting from the icon build script and it appears it's got something to do with newer versions of imagemagick so I solved the problem by commenting out a line from the script :wink:
try to comment line generate_kde_icons.sh:112
# composite -blend ${alpha}x0 ....

you'll loose the ability to apply a global opacity level to the icon.
(some) recent versions of imagemagigk appear to have problems with this, though former reports referred to entire black icons.

graphicsmagick may not show this issue - on the other hand it could be graphicsmagick pretending to be imagmaick (that's usually ok) causing this trouble - no idea %-\

I have always wanted to try Peppermint, if I am not mistaken though it is only LXDE or Openbox or something like that. Plus I quit anything Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based including Mint (well, for now. I saw those Mint Debian screenshots).

Betamine: 756MB DDR RAM/1.8GHz AMD Sempron +3000 Single-Core/SiS -something- with like 16MB of Memory

This is the Isadora Fluxbox CE. I've seen a guy on deviantart having this setup, so I reproduced his desktop.
I also removed the default Tint2 toolbar replacement. I just don't like it. :D
