I have heard and seen "kicker panels"? on different screen shots, I thought it would be cool to have, but have no idea how to make, compile or obtain one, and I am not all that sure of what it does, I know its prob just eyecandy, but thats why i use linux, cause i like all the pretty stuff! lol
any answers would help.

I think you mean a skin for the kicker? That's just a graphics file - often with a *.png file extention (pronounced 'ping' btw) about 50x50 px
Can't remember which directory they're in, but they are quite easy to make yourself with the GIMP programme (a graphics processing package which is a tiny bit like Photoshop ... a fantastic piece of kit!)
You could search on Google for these, but you need to know how to log in as root, copy files etc.

You can also make the kicker transparent, change its dimensions, move it to a different screen border and use it make coffee (I lied about the last one).I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
