    Hi please can we have a watt os artwork section for people to post there custom made wallpaper, logo, icons etc.

    Speaking of icons ive looked all over the net for some largish watt os transparent icons so i can make my own custom wallpapers for my installation but there is nothing out there if anybody has any of these things please post.

    You might want to try going into the folder /usr/share/lxde/images, or http://www.fabiovisentin.com/tutorial/GIMP_transparent_image/gimp_how_to_make_transparent_image.asp .

    Many thanks dave but i was really looking for larger images those icons loose to much of there quality when you enlarge them and tend to look blurred.

    Hi Lee - the original wattOS stock logos are not on the web site or generally out there as they were made by a friend of mine. So I have the original Hi-Res logos/artwork. I will consider placing them up there for others. Look for an update later this weekend as I am home catching up...

    tks....biff

    Thanks biff ofcourse there is absolutly nothing wrong with how watt os looks straight out of the box its just one of my little pleasures makeing my own look, i have to say this is an excellent distro just what i was hopeing for alot of people who found out there would not be a linux mint 13 lxde lts or a lubuntu 12.04 lts jumped its highly recomended on the mint forums.
