    Customizing Ubuntu's LOOKS

    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.

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

    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 (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 try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
