I have a quick question about -current. If I switch over to current will that require me to recompile packages I got from slackbuilds.org?

Sometimes, yes. Sometimes, no. You will notice soon enough when a program stops working.

In KDE 4.8, when I locked the screen the background was black. Now it's a colorful wallpaper and I can't find where to change this. Any ideas?

It's the default background used by your themes
Assuming you are using the default theme, it should be located in /usr/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Default/
find background.png on the size that you wanted, for example /usr/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Default/1920x1080/background.png

If I don't misunderstand your question, it's even easier: Right-click on the background, select a pattern, an image, image of the day from Flickr or other sources. In your case: Select "Image" (or maybe it's "Picture", not sure, as my desktop is not US-English). Then select a picture you like with a suitable size (resolution).

Thanks, but I can't right click on the background while in the unlock screen dialog, so I can't change it from there.

Thanks, yes. That's exactly the wallpaper image I'm seeing. Knowing this, I can simply replace it. However, is there no way to choose another image from the GUI? Sounds weird, being KDE...

But only if you choose one of the stock splash screens.
If you use another one from SystemSettings, then the lock screen image will be the default one anyway.

Having said that though, it's easy enough to use whatever image you want simply by copying/linking to your own preference.

I used this appmenu now for some hours, it's interesting having the menu on top of the screen.
will see if it is so usefull that this will be my new default setting, finding this out needs several hours more usage.

thanks again for providing the build.
