@ToZ, nice! The root menu icons are Token too? Did you have to replaced icons in another theme one by one? Also, is your GTK Albatross? I ask because I'm using Albatross right now, but the menu background color is different.

Look really cool, piper! We should have a plasma desktop widget that just shows the aptosid lettering so hat we don't have to put it on every wallpaper Wink. The advantage would be we could drag it to any size and place so that it always matches the wallpaper... Maybe on click it could open the default browser to bring you to your preferred website Wink.

Pumrel,
Well, what you see there is a shot from my netbook (10") which, other than my browser (uzbl), is completely cli-based. It's mostly the same on my desktops as well, just maybe with a few more GTK apps like Gimp and such.

Well, to get such a desktop, the first thing you need to decide on is a window manager. Sure you can get CLI apps working fine on KDE as well, but I don't think that was the purpose of a question. Standalone window managers are plentiful, so you'll have to decide on one first. That screenshot was running Cwm, which I ported over (dirty hack) from Open BSD. I don't think it's available for most Linux distros (Arch has it in their AUR, though), but there are a ton of alternatives like EvilWM, TWM, even AmiWM if you want the old Amiga Workbench look. Openbox and Fluxbox are also good choices (I think aptosid comes with fluxbox included). Why not try those. With a little configuring, you should be able to have a nice Fluxbox setup running. Tiling window managers like dwm, xmonad and scrotwm are other alternatves.

With regards to terminals and their apps, you'll need to decide on a term emulator first. I tend to use URxvt as my main term emulator (search "rxvt-unicode" in the Debian repos). It requires either a ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources file for configuration. Here's a basic ~/.Xdefaults file to give you a basic idea.

      Code:
URxvt*title:               urxvt
URxvt*termName:          rxvt-unicode
URxvt*font:              -*-terminus-medium-r-normal-*-12-120-72-72-c-60-iso8859-1
URxvt*boldFont:          -*-terminus-medium-r-normal-*-12-120-72-72-c-60-iso8859-1
!URxvt*font:             xft:lime:pixelsize=7
!URxvt*boldFont:         xft:lime:pixelsize=7
!URxvt*font:             -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Semicondensed-*-12-110-75-75-C-60-ISO10646-1
!URxvt*boldFont:         -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Semicondensed-*-12-110-75-75-C-60-ISO10646-1
URxvt*background:        #333333
URxvt*foreground:        #CCCCCC
URxvt*scrollBar:         false
URxvt*secondaryscroll:   true
URxvt*matcher.button:    1
URxvt*cursorBlink:       true
URxvt*cursorUnderline:   true
URxvt*cursorColor:       #999999
URxvt*colorBD:           #FFFFFF
URxvt*colorUL:           #9966CC
URxvt*underlineColor:    #999966

URxvt*allow_bold:        true
URxvt*depth:             24
URxvt*dynamicColors:     on

!Xft*dpi:                96
!Xft*antialias:          false
!Xft*hinting:            full

URxvt*mapAlert:          true
URxvt*visualBell:        true
URxvt*urgentOnBell:      true
!URxvt*inheritPixmap:    true
!URxvt*tintColor:        #000000

URxvt*color8:              #999999
!RED
URxvt*color1:              #CC6666
URxvt*color9:              #FF9999
!GREEN
URxvt*color2:              #66CC99
URxvt*color10:             #99FFCC
!YELLOW
URxvt*color3:              #CC9966
URxvt*color11:             #FFCC99
!BLUE
URxvt*color4:              #6699CC
URxvt*color12:             #99CCFF
!MAGENTA
URxvt*color5:              #CC6699
URxvt*color13:             #FF99CC
!CYAN
URxvt*color6:              #66CCCC
URxvt*color14:             #99FFFF
!WHITE
URxvt*color7:              #CCCCCC
URxvt*color15:             #FFFFFF

Note: Variables with a ! before them are to be ignored. Make sure you change fonts to your liking (or "apt-get install xfonts-terminus" if you want to use Terminus like I've put in that config)

The music player you see is ncmpcpp, which is a front-end for the venerable mpd (music player daemon), both of which are available in the repos. You'll need to sort out your ~/.mpdconf and ~/.ncmpcpp/config to get both working. MoC is also a great player, though it doesn't play gapless which I need. Just ask if you need assistance with either.

Lastly, you need to get your vim colorschemes and other app configs sorted to properly take advantage of your term colorscheme, goes without saying. Take it one step at a time.

Hope this helps. Smile
