My latest theme, trying to keep it simple. Not bothering with AWN or Conky b/c I'm using Mint 7 Gloria XFCE right now and am waiting for Mint 9 Isadora XFCE (or I might go Debian, not sure >>)

Not yet, have to reinstall gnome on one of my machines. My Mint 9 install did not hold up to an nvidea driver update and I was waiting a while to make sure it was resolved.

Sorry to hear you were having issue with Video drivers. Never fun. You'd think they could fix something so important.

I installed all of the updates then activated the drivers, now it's working alright. I had to manually fix the resolution for Plymouth because my monitor has a higher resolution than any included in the tools.

I am glad to hear you got it working. Nothing more frustrating than video issues.

My latest mess around. It's the wild-shine theme and background with a Tigris window border. And some rgba thrown in for good measure. So glad I could blur the windows, transparency without blurring is horrible.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.

Thanks guys :)

I just installed Mint 9 on my desktop and am hard at work configuring it. I'll post a screenie when I'm done.

One question tho:

Is there a tutorial somewhere where I can make conky look as kool as your guys'? That'd be the perfect icing on my desktop! thank you!
