[Porteus-LXDE] UI-Productivity-SuperPack.Updated May 13,2014

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

I also think there would be no need for different build options, and I was rather surprised to see Ahau's signature on the package.
For now I will include the full patched gtk3 module in the pack and if later Ahau shows up, I will ask him for Slackbuild.
Thank you for your help,brokenman!

Finally managed to have some free time to finish the pack for Porteus 3.0.Lots of optimizations, extensive testing, bug fixes took place.
Currently posting only 32bit pack, as my laptop doesnt support 64bit extensions.
The following days I will have access to my 64bit desktop, and will provide this pack for 64bit. Most of the needed work/bugfixes is already done.
Enjoy and stay tuned for 64bit pack! :Yahoo!:

P.S. Check out the changelog for details

UI pack for Porteus-LXDE 3.0 x86_64 (64 bit) posted under downloads (3rd post).
Known issue:
with both Porteus-LXDE 32bit and 64bit. Unrelated to this pack. When logging out using the regular logout menu, and re-logging in, lxpanel may be missing some tray application indicators (aka tray_icons), and .xsession-errors file (under ~/) shows lots of BadGC errors. Most likely this is lxpanel's fault or lxdm's. Need some more testing.
Killing/restarting X server solves this issue until next logoff.
Suggested workaround: after logging out -> Alt+Ctrl+Backspace to restart X and lxdm, then relogin.
Unrelated to the above issue:
I have also uploaded a special module - same for all Porteus editions and architectures - to avoid manually rebuilding icon caches, if any broken icons appear after installing new apps.

Update on the known issue: it appears when lxpanel's background is set to single color, but not when it's set to use an image (as per default). More research needed. The same behavior I observed on Slackware 14.1, but not on Arch.
