Can someone, like, if you don't mind.. post me links to Linux Mint resources, themes, stuff like that? To pimp my desktop?

Oh and.. y'know those sidebar things that put your system info? and time? I wonder what they're called?

Plus, the thing that is below with a bunch of icons.. what's that called too?

Sorry for being too stupid, thanks.

Well Khalid here are some of the links I use to pimp my desktop. For the sidebar thing that shows system info and time I think you are referring to conky, if so you can install that from synaptic package manager, click you menu then administration then synaptic package manager. Once in that program you can search conky or if you use the terminal then just type sudo apt-get install conky-all, I am including a link for conky config info. The thing below with a bunch of icons if I am understanding you correctly would be a dock, now there are many docks but the most used 3 that I know of are AWN, Docky, or Cairo dock. All of these can be installed via synaptic as well. Just search the name of the want you want to try. Themes for the dock are pre-installed and you can add more from gnome-look.org which I provided the link for as well. Well I hpe this answrs your questions. :)

Wow Oscar. I'm beginning to see that the people designing the accessories aren't the only artists. Putting together a complete look like that is an art in itself.
