Try x11-themes/fvwm-themes, which will install x11-wm/fvwm2-devel as a dependency. Put "fvwm-themes-start" in your ~/.xinitrc, then run startx. On the resulting screen, if you left click the empty area, called "root window" (or "desktop" if you prefer), a menu will pop up which will have "Theme Configuration" or some such title. From there, you can choose "Redmond 98" or "Redmond XP" themes for button-shapes, "start menu", taskbar & other thingumadoodles. You may need to do adjustments to your "theme" as you may or may not have all the programs installed (or even care about) which are listed in the menus and|or displayed as buttons. - Parv -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
