    I have used Okular on my previous installation of Kubuntu,it was a nice application.But when I tried to install it from repos it wanted to install a lot of KDE based applications to work on gnome, instead I installed ePDF from the repos and it is nice too.The Evince bug is being worked on too,I hope they are going to fix the bug soon.
    I will try screenlets from the repo thanks.

    I would never go so far to say it looks professional, i don't ever think a gnome theme can, but the the new ubuntu themes are a huge improvement over the old ones at least.

    Whats thre definition of professional in a theme? If its functional and compliance, Gnome is miles ahead of anything out there.

    *This is IMHO, don't take it for facts and start a war, i am probably the only one in the world that thinks like this anyway*

    Ok first of all there is nothing wrong with gnome as a DE, functionality wise etc.

    I am also aware that you could make gnome look like KDE, Windows7 or OSX if you want. But i was more talking about the overall cartoonish style in gnome themes, icons sets, cursors etc that usually can be found on sites like gnome-look. In lack of a better description, it kinda feel like what comic sans are for fonts :D

    To me Win7 looks like a sick cartoon copy of KDE and less I say about KDE the better, lets say Plasma is good for children to pass time. OSX is for those
    who think their PC is but a toy to play with and show off. Gnome is dull, drab but stable and functional and for those obsessed with looks, there are enough themes to make it look as shiny as possible.

    I have to agree that I've never seen a good-looking third-party theme for GNOME, and that includes even the Ubuntu community themes as well. But that's not to say it's impossible for GNOME to look good; openSUSE and Linux Mint have done pretty cool stuff with their GNOME versions, and Lucid actually looks decent as well.

    I do agree with you. Gnome is stable and functional, i use it on two computers (one with ubuntu and one with archlinux). However gnome is so full with inconsistency design wise (imho).

    For example, why oh why is there half the menus with icons and half without? Why can't i be allowed to chose either no icons at all or icons everywhere? (yes i can turn on icons everywhere by fumbling around in gconf). As it is now it just seems extremely nonprofessional.

    And why can't i have a custom icon in nautilus bookmarks? For example if i have a folder with a custom icon and then put it in "places" it shows as the default folder icon.

    Might seem like small issues for some people, but when they start to pile up... We have a saying in my country "Many small brooks will form a big river" :)

    You raise some really good points and you should post these at the gnome wish list, how let me ask you, honestly you wouldn't like gnome to go KDE, Mac or Win7 way, maybe minor tweaks here and fixes there but definitely not to those regions.

    Hi Ocky,

    I'm embarrassed to ask this, but how do you get your taskbar icons to look like they're floating like that?

    I am glad you leave the easy questions for me to answer. :) Just install the Avant Window Navigator also known as AWN.
    Add applets via the Dock Preferences Interface. Add Launchers by running the application you want to add, then r/clicking on its icon in the AWN Panel and selecting 'Add as Launcher' A nice effect to enable is the Spotlight. :D

    (BTW ... ha..ha.. I'm not really Pcky just Ocky.)
