It certainly helps! Thank you! I'm definitely going to follow the guidelines you gave me!
I'm at the very beginning of the "desktop-maker" carrer. I don't know many things: for instance I don't know how to write conky scripts myself and how to use gimp in the right way. But I think I'll learn... you know, by trial and error.
Thank you again

Nice one. Since I am thinking of going really minimal and getting rid of XFCE on my laptop and only using Xmonad as WM, would you be so kind to give me a link to your list of installed packages or PM it to me?

Been messing with getting cleaner fonts with Slackware64 13.37 and the ability to read Thai fonts system wide and have succeeded. I also made some slight changes to my .conkyrc, nothing fancy, just the way I like it. I was having some issues with my Intel i915 taking a dump on me periodically and have since upgraded libdrm-2.4.25-x86_64-1.txz & mesa-7.10.2-x86_64-1.txz from testing as well as the 2.6.38.4 kernel and have not had any problems since.

Nice! From the looks of it, it looks like you have 2 monitors connected? How did you get the desktop to look like 2 separate ones where KDE shows the bottom bar on both monitors?

Thanks.
Yes I am running dual monitors. What I did was enable twinview and than add it a second tool bar to my second screen. Now it looks like separate X screens in kde but its not.
Though I acts like it as I can keep open windows on each individual space for each screen. what I did was enable "only keep task for the current screen and current desktop" under the task manager settings.... BUT it does not behave like a true Separate X Screen.

Are your dual monitors the same resolution? Mind posting your xorg.conf somewhere for me? I'm having a hell of a difficult time getting dual monitors going, but I guess that's because I want dual to be secondary rather than the first thing I get when I go into KDE.

dimm0k,

Thats exactly how I have it configure. I have my secondary "HDMI" Monitor set as my primary.... and my primary "DVI" set as my secondary.
Yes I have them both at the same resolution...

here is my xorg.conf:
