Settling in with my Mate Sarah! ;-) - Sardi icons throughout
- customised the Terminal's .bashrc file
- further customised the Conky's .conkyrc file
- ...and once again ditched that huge ugly MintMenu for one of my own choosing!

Clean, tasteful, not too garish, minimal... that'll do me for now!

I did a completely fresh install of LM 17.2 "Rafaela" over the weekend (MATE edition, natch!)... I spent a few hours (in between stages of the Tour de France!) putting things back the way I like them. I'm pretty impressed with some of the 'improvements' so far. Some of the things that I felt the need to 'fix' the last time I did an upgrade (centering windows on the screen by default, for example) I found had already been done for me this time around!

Now I'm just starting to play with the 'eye candy' again. You know me, I like sparse!

Current icon theme is Malys-Ex from the Noobslab concern; Just a stock Mint background for now; Still working on the panel & menu; Not sure what I'll do for a Conky this time around - either adapt my well-tried existing one or try something new?

Who knows how it will look when it's done - almost certainly something completely different to this! - But ain't that the fun of it?

This weekend's bit of 'eye candy' play... LM17.1 Mate... my own ever-evolving conky (I added a new clock to celebrate BST!)... Malys-Uniblue icons... custom menu bar... and the wallpaper is based on something I stole from one of the BBC Radio websites!

Here's this weekend's progress...
Wallpaper from http://wallpaper-kid.com/rainbow-clouds-background.htm
Icons - "Malys-Uniblue" from the NOOBSLAB concern (where else!?!)
Conky - my variation on a theme of Hardy
It's coming along tastefully, tho' I do say so myself! ;-)

Yesterday's upgrade to LM 17.1 went smoothly, except for one thing... My pre-existing "Eye Candy"!
Because LM 17.1 now comes with the muliticoloured Mint-X themes included, during the upgrade process it took exception to the fact that I'd already installed those via Noobslab. I uninstalled them and then did a fresh update to get the new ones back. Some of the ZonColor themes no longer look quite the same either.
Not to worry! It's a good excuse to throw out the old and come up with some brand new themes instead! Here's one of today's efforts "under construction"...
