I have tested the DE on my workstation debian sid (qt 4.7) and looks good for first impression

i think is better if people compile from git directly so they will avoid the missing config issue

There are so many "forks" of Antico project. So, I think it's time to join forces. Take a look at my fork, I have good ideas like window decorations based on CSS (http://wiki.github.com/gustavosbarreto/antico/creating-decorations)

and about the antico name...
we have antico, antico deluxe, antico light

A deluxe version is a bad thing for the image of main version.
the deluxe has his own objectives. A join probally not can be made.

Maybe a rebrand is a good idea for next release. (or a rebrand of antico-deluxe)

I made an install and it create new user directory. why do not you put the git repo in the description or replace the tar file?

this one is reasonable.
