Hi Nat,

Not that I can see. However there are some in the package gcc45-objc
which are installed at /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.5/include/objc/
- are those what you're looking for?

I don't know; I get the coloured arrows and buttons, running under
VMware Player.

It's actually lxdm, which is kind of loosely associated with the lxde
suite (not xfce) but designed to be usable independently. It was
originally chosen because xdm had a nasty bug, the patch for which was
awkward to apply because of the way xdm is built in openSUSE. lxdm
seemed the most lightweight Display Manager after xdm. But also it
looks nicer - themable and generally modern appearance.

On my system, most of them are B&W but the rightmost one - the Data
Palette - has a picture which is in colour. Can you check whether you
get that?

Yes, I can see that would be useful. Normally, I try not to introduce
dependencies unless they're essential - i.e. the package won't run
without them - but, in this case, I can't imagine anyone wanting to
build a project and then not make it.
