Dudes! Those are some awesome screenshots! Thanks for all the info NSKL, I will see what I can come up with.

Slackbox, huh huh, cool.

Nautilus, Does that menu in the lower left always stay up? If so, how'd you do that?

Oh, and I won't get upset if it goes off topic, but maybe a mod will And besides, it's relatively on topic, since you are trying to "dress up" your screen for a shot.

Cool

It won't let me, I can do it if I substitute c: for d: no problem there, but will it make my "terminal" background transparent?

Hey guys... I Just compiled XDirectFB into my system... but I can't get it to work. Are there any configuration files or anything?? Do you need a good video card? I have a somewhat old 500 Mhz compaq presario... but i don't really know what card it is... it think 16 mb of mem though. Will that be ok you think?

The program that displays logs is called root-tail (search google, its a really old program so if you dont find it, i'll e-mail it to you) and you can tell it to check as many log files as you want, and optionally display each log file in different color, (in my example /var/log/messages are green,n syslog is black and /var/log/secure in red)
Theres also many other loggers like the one i use. I hear ppl like colortail but i prefer root-tail. You start it from your .xinitrc and tell it what geometry it should have and it will sit there and be like the part of the background, you cant focus it, select it, etc..
I have about ten programs starting from .xinitrc so yeah, flux takes about 3-5 seconds to start on my athlon 1600+ i think its acceptable. And then Icons look cool

Thanks for the info, I got root-tail running, it was a available on www.freshmeat.net. Now I am going to attempt flux with ROX icons before I post another shot.

Thanks again for the info

Cool

MasterC: You need this line:
exec rox -p --pinboard=PIN &
in your .xinitrc and then you can drag icons from the Rox filer to the desktop. You also need ROX base package and Rox filer installed, if i recall well.
Good luck,
