I could not see any guidelines re: posting HOWTO's & want to check a few things before posting.

I've created a HOWTO (available here (http://www.mutube.com/node/55)) which might be useful to post for other Kubuntu/Ubuntu dual users. It's also a nice demonstration of getting a consistent Ubunut look across desktops.

What is the best way to post this HOWTO to the forums? The obvious (and easiest) method would be to post a link with short intro description and let people use the guide on the site. But is this allowed, or should I be posting the whole HOWTO here?

Thanks for any clarification!

Nicely done!

What I recommend is posting a new thread in the Faqs, howtos, tips & tricks (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=100) forum.

Use a clear title...something like this maybe; "HOWTO: make a consistent look for your desktop if you use both Ubuntu and Kubuntu".

In the text post a short paragraph description of what the howto contains and then your link with a note "this link goes to my blog and I'm posting this way because matthew said I could" and a link to this thread. If there's any problem then it will come back to me (and if I see it first I'll go ahead and approve it).
