Hello all, I am new to linux kinda. Anyway I was wondering what programs I can use to enhance my desktop. Right now I just have the standard Fedora Core 3 look. Any suggestions? Thanks, s10237

Go to: http://www.gnome-look.org and http://art.gnome.org
Download themes you like and install them with Preferences -> Theme

Themes can be:
Window borders - Metacity
Appearance - GTK
Icons - icon themes
Login screen - GDM (installed with System Settings -> Login Screen)

Sometimes you need to restart Theme Preferences window to see changes.
Good luck :)

Thanks, you know I was going to go with Mandrake because of KDE but after trying both I like RDH Fedora Core better.

Install all themes you want and then restart Theme Preferences window.
Go to Theme Details and select different Controls, Window borders, Icons

You can use KDE in Fedora also, where is the problem with it?
