Posted by bwh1969 on Sep. 08 2006,21:26I have DSL as my default OS on my computer. Yeah:-) Debian "Knoppix HD install" is my second and windows 2000 is my last. I am looking never to buy a windows OS again... ever!
Okay, on with my question.
I have many GTK2 dependent programs. I would ideally like it to "update" itself on starting DSL as it already "loads" itself from its mydsl directory. Is there a means to do this? It is kind of a pain every time I want to use firefox 1.5 or thunderbird to have to do this, although it isn't THAT big of a deal.
If not, where is the execution file stored so I can make a desktop icon using the icontool to link it?

Posted by mikshaw on Sep. 08 2006,22:47After installing gtk2, look in /home/dsl/.fluxbox/mydsl.menu.
You should see the command to enable gtk2 in curly brackets.
I have never see what it is, but my guess is that it is a sudo command.
Add that command, without "sudo", to /opt/bootlocal.sh if you use the backup/restore system. If you don't use backup/restore, but have a persistent home, add the command, including "sudo", to /home/dsl/.bash_profile (before "startx").
