I would like to be able to do two things:
Firstly, align the icons (widgets?) to a grid pattern without needing to juggle them in to position.
Secondly, I would like to move and rearrange the icons (widgets?) in the task bar at the bottom of the screen.
These functions are standard on many distros.
If there is already a way to do these things, would somebody please advise me.

Which edition of Salix are you using? XFCE, LXDE, KDE, Fluxbox (I'm guessing not Ratpoison)
What you want to do will need different steps in each environment.

Hello and thank you for your reply.
According to /etc/slackware-version I am using 13.37.0
I was thinking that suitable scripts might allow these things in future versions of Salix.
It would add convenience I think.

OK, which Desktop Environment are you using?
When you download Salix, you choose one of these:
Which of them you are using is important to how you customise the desktop.

I am using the KDE desktop.
I have got used to not being able to use it as per other distros. Cannot start new file/folder from the 'desktop' etc.
However overall I find it very professional.
Thank you for your replies, but should this discussion be in another section?

I believe it's the version of KDE... I don't think 4.5.5 supports a grid desktop.

We live and learn.
Thank you for the advice.
I hope future versions of KDE have this grid facility.
I will take more note of versions than I have in the past.

Maybe you just want to activate folder view on the desktop and disable the widget stuff? IIRC this is possible.
