dawgdoc wrote:@ lKingjr, yes, as someone in the other thread said, those are very nice icons (buttons) did you design them? I have made a few icons using inkscape, but never a set for any purpose. What I did was make a few to use in Rocket Dock back when I was still using WinXP.

@ pintas, you desktop comes together very well.
actually no, the icons are part of the latest version of "Any Color You Like". I still think the most versatile icon theme out there.

Thank you. I am still at 0.9.1 with ACYL and have the cutout icons on my desktop, like Marc frequently uses.

Thanks. There's a lot of experimental packages in my system, but till now, rock solid. I don't have a single error in my system so far, which is completely new for me. And that is why i'll try to keep this config.

I dug out one of the desktops Zwopper made a few versions ago and changed icon and window colors a little.

nice job...I like the logo :)
I tried xfce 4.8 with Sabayon or something (I have so many distros :lol: ),
but when I would switch icons themes the folders wouldn't change. Have you run into this?

Ya all package management is done via terminal in Arch. I hear Arch is good though, it is a rolling release distro.

yep. I've only had it for half a day so might be a little early for me to say. but so far so good.

I only had to add a PPA[1] for Lucid, but now I will try one for Maverick[2]. So far I have no problems, except sometimes, when I use the right mouse button, the menu is somewhat slow down.
