What do you use to customize ubuntu's looks?

I am still using the basic theme manager, but I understand there are more advanced options out there I'd love to explore. :)

You may wish to do some reading about gdesklets and compiz/xgl.

I've tried gdesklets, and it's quite interesting, and will try Beryl on Edgy, as I hear it is easier to install. :)

and gdesklets is another great program for gnome, kde uses superkaramba (its built-in)

have fun

i use the right wallpaper to match the theme. plus i use gdesklets. i don't bother with AIGLX/GLX because i think they are an unecessary waste.

Customise your Gksudo (password entry) dialogs (http://bigbolshevik.blogs.friendster.com/a_man_and_his_penguin/2006/10/cool_customisat.html) (this is by no means the most fun you can have with Gksudo, just the stuff you can change on a case-by-case basis.

i just change the wallpaper. In fact, I have a script runned by cron to change it every 30m.

The thread in my signature is a very basic guide to customizing Ubuntu's look. Anyway you might have a look if you find something interesting.
