Thank you both for your help. I think I will take the advice and leave #! installed and wait for BunsenLabs.

Thanks!  smile

Can you please help me make my debian desktop look and feel like #!? Ok, I know that is a very generalized statement. So more specifically, I just want the minimalist look. I want the "Start menu" I attached an image. I forget what it is called.

Take a look here, please.

I respect the decision but I will miss #!. It's the first linux distro that I really enjoy. I was just now in the process of looking for a replacement but can't find anything I like. I guess debian is an alternative, but it doesn't install well for me. It told me immediately that a kernel was missing or something to that effect.

Oh, what will I do with #!

I downloaded and installed recordmydesktop from the synaptic manager. However, I can't find the application. How do I open it?

Thank you, sorry I'm still slowly learning #!

ok, thank you.

edit: I went through the links you gave me and I googled several deviantART posts but all I found were very fancy and extravagant themes. If you look in the picture you will notice the theme is simply a line on the bottom screen with system information as follows:

CPU:   RAM:   VOL:    FAN:    LUM:    WIFI:    BATT:   MOC:

If someone could help me set this up or get me started I would really appreciate your expertise.

The bottom center is showing a nice and simple view of the system information. How can I replicate this?

Hello - forgive me if this has been asked, thanks for your humbleness if it has.

I'm very new to linux and I know I should be using something like Ubuntu which will hold me hand, but I would rather learn #!.

How do I install a program that will allow me to snap windows so that I can multi-task?
