I have been enjoying dsl 4410..(p3-600/256meg) I am customizing fluxbox on a thumb and although most things seem to work fine I have a few issues I do not know how to resolve.
here is a screenshot of the desktop so far.
The first and biggest issue is the pppdialer...when I open it and click config a dialog appears but any choice (create,reconfig,delete) causes it to disappear..is this a bug? I do not know how to create an account manually
so no internet..I had no issues with previous versions of the dialer and config...perhaps it is fixed in a newer version or will be
the second issue is the program wmrack..at boot it appears as a tiny window in the upper left of the screen which I have to kill.. then if I open from the mydsl menu it appears docked and functions...and I like it. The drawer and clock boot docked in the slit. I added the three to fluxbox.inc and xinitrc ...this is likely solveable but I am currently at a loss.
the third issue is xcdroast..although the included works I decided to try xcdroast...it is available at boot but settings are not saved..I do not know how to get the unc and uci extensions to boot with previous config..the files are still in home... this may apply to opera also but I have no internet so did not test. I did not quite understand the file tool method if that is the issue.
I would like to see stardict as an available extension and also dia diagram program...dia is in the repository as a .dsl but does not work for 4410..the osmo calendar is also a good simple cal with notes. but jpilot is working fine
I added mount/umounts to the drawer..click the cd icon and the cd is mounted, emelfm opens and lists the content in the left pane. with music cd I just click play on the rack..to umount I click the ball below..I like this desktop but it needs work
any thoughts appreciated..
