I installed wattOSR5 a couple of days ago on an old box of mine, I am very impressed and it's going to be my main linux distro.
I do have a few questions, if ya'll don't mind:
1. During the install, I entered a password for "root", and my user account when I log onto wattOS uses the same password.
I think this is a "privileged" account, and all is fine as it is, but do I need to make another account for myself as just a regular-user?
2. I accidentally removed from the "quick-launch" area on the panel, "file manager"and "browser" launchers.
How can I get them back or add other desired launchers there?
3. Is it possible to use the "windows-key" as a way to activate the menu or start-icon that is in the lower-left corner of the panel?
Those questions are all that I have at the moment.
Many thanks to any and all, for your attention,
Hi Mack, Temporary files are at /tmp. Just open as root and delete files in usual way. Bleachbit (root) works well for general cleaning except it misses trash and be careful of what you choose in the system category. Unless you have all day, do not check "Free disk space" or "memory". As for the user accounts, I don't see any reason for more than 1 account per person. The guide links that you referenced have a section on new accounts, etc.
Also, I have found none of my Remastersys have gone much over 2 GB even though gparted, etc show 4+ GB hard drive use. Apparently, if you are reasonable (no big things like music and videos) with what you choose, you should have plenty of space. I think there is a 4GB limit on Remastersys.
Welcome Mack - yes you can use just about any key combo. To manually edit key bindings, you can go to your home directory in the file manager and in the hidden files (hit Ctrl-H to see them) go to ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml You can open this with leafpad and find the key bindings in there. By default the menu can be opened currently by Ctrl-Esc. You will find out all kinds of keybindings you might not know about.
You can simply search for "menu" in this file in leafpad (Ctrl-F) and it will highlight all entries....scroll down until you find the keybindings, and you will see its pretty self explanatory.
In any case, to change it to the "windows" key use the entry "Super_L" or "Super_R" for the left or right windows key.
