Install and use arandr and lxrandr. Details: http://lxlinux.com
whenever i upgrade or move to a new distro i first copy all my /home (inc hidden). then i like to use the live disk to format my /home, / and /boot fs (i prefer to have them with meaningful labels). then i install, without allowing it to do any formats, and finally i copy the saved version of my /home onto my "new" /home fs (but not the hidden ones). ... that all works great, however, i would like to "restore" all the settings of my preferred apps. questions: 1) which hidden files should i copy (to my new /home)? and should not too ! 2) are app settings stored in any other place? (besides the hidden files in /home)
1.Hi all how do i get these 2 programs to autostart but not show up in the panel, the two programs are Synapse and Cairo compiz manager please help
2.Does anbody know how to set up a login sound?.
Hi Ron - I posted the info below in another forum area that might help you quickly...tks....
The easiest thing to do is to open up synaptic "Go!-preferences-synaptic package manager" then in the search area enter "system-config-samba"
Install that package then you will see a menu entry under "preferences" that says samba.
From there you can add a directory, user rights, etc. with an easy to understand gui...
That is likely the easiest way to do what you need.
Hi there....two topics.
1. One thing you can try to smooth out the audio while multasking is make a change to a configuration file if you are comfortable doing that.
Edit the /etc/pulse/daemon.conf file (using leafpad, nano, etc. but you will have to do this as root)
default-fragments = 8
default-fragment-size-msec = 10
default-fragments = 25
default-fragment-size-msec = 25
for DVD - wattOS already has the restricted extras package installed, but if you want to play encrypted DVD's, you need some more adjustments. All disclaimers apply for that, and you need be legal, but the basic command below in a terminal should work. Once its finished (it downloads a couple things) reboot and give it a try again.
Welcome and enjoy...
About the search again, does anyone have any advice on where to find it, or how to add it to WattOS? Would be much appreciated!!
