it's a svn (subversion) command.
You "checkout" the repo edit the files and if you're ready you can add it again with "commit"

but graphical SVN-Clients suck (for me), with the consoleclient you're much faster
It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

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. :)

For Icon, GTK, X-11 Mouse themes among many other things: http://gnome-look.org/
Wallpapers: http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/wallpaper/
Conky config info: http://conkyhardcore.com/ http://conky.sourceforge.net/ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=281865
Dock Themes: http://gnome-look.org/
Thank you so much!

Made the switch to Linux Mint Debian, so I thought that called for a new desktop. Click for full-sized:

Very nice red-e-made, love how you left the wallpaper centered and black on the left and right for your conky and icons. Also excellent wallpaper. How are you liking LMDE? Again nice work and thanks for sharing this work of art. :D

I'm loving LMDE. Takes longer to boot (45 seconds til sign-in, then 20 seconds til fully loading desktop, as opposed to 25/10 for Mint 9) but once it's up, it's faster than the Ubuntu-based distro. Having seen this project when it was "just" an idea posted on this forum, I'm proud to use this distro.

Been playing around with LMDE.

How about an LMDE LXDE desktop?
