Not yet, and I'm dont have access to my Linux mint 12 computer right now so I can't try it at the moment. How would you edit the mint-z theme to get reflection to work?

Well, I don't use mint-z but I think you can do the same I did with Minty.
Take a look at this thread.

Ok. Let's do it the easy way.
Open a terminal and do a sudo gedit /urs/share/themes/Mint-Z/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css
Now scroll down to the section "Panel" and look for the value "height" (line 383) and change it from "24px" to "2.3em", save, restart gnome-shell (Alt+F2 r) and that's all!

Now you know the trick, so you can apply it to any shell theme to correct that problem, but you have to try with different "height" values until you find one which works properly.

Looks like everyone is trying out Mint 12 RC. I'm not quite ready to date Lisa yet. In the meantime, here are some screenshots of my Katya desktop:

I wondered yesterday if I would update my mint to 12 Lisa. But then, everything works well with Julia, so decided not to update before Mint 13 LTS.

My desktop looks nowadays like this:

A very minimalist desktop, with a simple Conky Mint setup. I like keeping my desktop squeaky clean. First time really customizing a Linux install as well as first time using Conky, so it's still a work in progress at the moment.

Ok, so by the suggestion of someone else on a different forum I've moved my Conky over a little, trying my best to center it between last letter and right side.

I think it actually does look better this way now.
