Hi,

I have just installed vector Linux 5.9 Standard on my Pentium 500 PC. Not bad. But I would like some UI tweaks.
Is it possible to download the Microsoft fonts and use them with VL? I also was not that enthusiastic about the icon themes. How can I get more Icon sets. Which sets would you recommend?
Next subject are the workspace icons. Is ist possible to display them from left to right? That would enable me to size down the panel.

Regards, Ludwig

I thought you could just move them to whatever you want, and they stay that way. But not sure.

No. Right Click on the workspace icons ->popup ->Properties dialog ->setting number of rows to 1.
Now it is as I wanted.

Got you. I thought you meant icons on your "desktop", but you meant the pager.

(you can change how many workspaces you have in Settings > Workspaces Settings, if you need it)
