|"more normal" there is no such thing. You want it to behave just like Window$. Admit it.|
No. I don't want it to look like windows. Why on earth would i want to do that? win95 look? No way. If i wanted it to look like windows, i would have asked. I mentioned KDE and i asked if anyone could recommend a nice color scheme.
I just wanted to know if there was any way to make it a little more like the more popular GUI's/window managers available. KDE imo looks quite different from windows, especially after using it for a while and gnome looks very different. I like both of them, as both are very easy to use.
Normal in my mind means to be more like other things, in this case KDE/Gnome. Then again anyone here is probably used to fluxbox and considers that to be normal.
I know why fluxbox is included, its very small and gets the job done well for its size. Never mind, i can try to adapt.
I said i have used linux since FC4. I prefer using KDE, but the terminal makes some things a lot faster, especially su related stuff. I do know my way around a bit in linux, so im not that much of a newbie.
I wanted to remove dillo because i really don't think i'll ever use it. I can access that page through firefox anyway. Once again, never mind, i'll ignore it.
I asked about mplayer because in Fedora and Ubuntu installing extra codecs was required for xine and gstreamer based things, mplayer also seemed to require it.
I know how to edit files in linux. I know its very common rather than using a gui, however to setup the box to use a proxy server by editing a file seemed a little odd, when most programs have it built in. I would add that to the wiki, but i suppose if it was wanted, it would already be there.
By proxy i meant internet proxy. Browsing only. I know it won't make it system wide, i was just wondering if it for some reason could be different for proxy settings, since the wiki only mentioned a system wide change.
I have a feeling the front ports of my linux box are usb 1.1. I'll have to check, that was probably why it was taking so long to start up.
Right, now with all of that out of the way, i'm still not sure how dsl is working off the flash drive.
It seems that it uncompresses an iso to ram and then works off that. So im assuming changes have to be 'saved'....
I'll read up on the wiki on my unanswered questions about this and the like, and see how i go, can someone point to the most simple way of persistence on a usb drive?
Rox looks nice, however if it could cause problems, perhaps i should stick with what i've got. Can you give more info on this perhaps?
Once again, thanks in advance for any responses.
