I finally tried ALT and it is excellent. The icons, the look the performance everything is just awsome. But something strage is happend when I log in to X as root and then when I tried to open any application that usually requeires root permission (like synaptic or drakeconf etc...). I had a screen that says "permission denied". The same application was accessible as normal user (after submitting the root password of course) but when log in as root nothing that requiers root permission works. Also when I enabled some apt repositories from apt/sourses file and than tried to open synaptic with normal user permission everything is freezed. I could not open any application and all the buttons etc where only picture they did not respond to any command. 
And finally gnome menus turn to black when ı choose then think that this is a graphical problem maybe but .....
Can you help me to resolve these problems please cause I really liked ALT and want to use it .

Note: actually I m not at home, I m far from my computer for a couple of weeks. So, even if fast respons are your speciality :P no quick response is required for this post :)
Thanks Again Egor and all the ALT team you really desreve to be on the top of the market.
