Hello,

Here is some information to get you started. Depending on what desktop you are using. This is for the Kdesktop. When it comes to desktops, they are pretty much the same as the basics, They may change according to the way the distro is created but the commands are foundational and never really changes.

http://docs.kubuntu.org/

Here you will gain experience in how to customize your desktop.

Before you start experimenting, I suggest to create a virtual machine and try things out in there before you do that with your main machine.

Hello,

If I understand you correctly, Are you looking to change the background and such in a document? If so, then the best way to get that information is to click on the Help in the menu and type in what you want to do. It should pull up the info and you follow what it tells you to do?

It might help to post a screen shot of what application you are in and what you are trying to accomplish.

I-M: Your first post asked "How do i change the GUI, like colours, taskbar etc...".
You got a sensible answer.

Your second post asked "what i want is like changing invadings when you open documents and stuff and locked. backgrounds with stuff."
This statement does not make any sense in English!

Your third post asked "I found out how its called its: Rainmeter , are there programs to make like that or should i code in manual?"
Why did you expect Linux users to know about a Windows program?

Your fourth post says "Thanks for the help guys! ~NOT"
In view of your questions, this seems to be a very churlish response!

Please appreciate that everyone here is a volunteer and we all try our best to help other users. However, this does rely on the user posting sensible questions and providing as much information as possible. Even then, if we have no experience of a particular problem then it is impossible for anyone to respond!
