Here it is with a different wallpaper and a bluer theme:

can't decide between the period here:

or here:

I made the wallpaper, and I'd share it, but due to the licensing of the original, I can't distribute it as a derivative work.

Here's a link to the original, my modification should be pretty trivial to make.

This is the first time I've used a wallpaper that ever actively advertised linux :P

yeah but some mod moved it and LFS ain't mentioned in the title so I put it here, I don't really use slackware anymore but I thought I'd put this here for old times sake.
Glad u like it its on xfce-look.org and conatins both metacity and xfce4 window borders.

As long as your post is not older than 5 days you can change the title yourself using the Edit button and then clicking on the "Go Advanced" button.

Thanks for that, I did try changing it when it got moved, but didn't think to hit the ' go advanced' button, live and learn! Now changed, thanks.

Been working on my KDE more. Still not fully happy with it, but here's what I've got so far.

I've gone back to Openbox on my new 14.0 laptop. I fiddled with my fonts following the "How to optimize Slackware Fonts" thread, and I'm using Adobes Source Sans for my system fonts and Source Code Pro for my terminal.

Following the 'which terminal do you guys use' thread I've started fiddling with Xterm with the Solarized theme. I liked the xfce terminal but couldn't sort out the Solarized theme (a few colors seem a bit wrong).

I'm pretty happy, openbox pipe menus are awesome. The only things I'm not convinced with are the icons in tint2's system tray and the notifications (which come from xfce) kind of spam the one side of my screen if I get more than one (kde's notification thing is a lot nicer).

It usually takes me several days to make a desktop. As far as right click menus in KDE go, you can enable them through desktop settings. Its under Mouse Actions, you can set right click to open application menu. Then you edit your menu with kmenuedit (not the best or most stable tool, but its the only thing that can edit KDE's app menu so you kinda have to use it, I still can't find the plaintext menu file... After that its really just picking a wallpaper, window theme, desktop theme, icon theme, and color scheme. These are all in the KDE settings.

Its really the same thing for theming any desktop environment, you need a WM theme, a gtk/qt theme, and a wallpaper.

I see, thanks for the tips...
do you make your own window theme, desktop theme, icon theme, and color scheme?
