Anyone playing with the extensions noticed this happening?
When using the mydsl-menu feature, from LiveCD, things are perfect.
Apps load, icons are placed on desktop, choices are added to mydsl-menu.
If, after using a few extensions, browsing a couple of internet sites,
adding bookmarks, changing themes, etc... I decide to make a BACKUP,
then strange things happen the next time I restore from BACKUP...
The icons I previously loaded from mydsl extensions are on the desktop,
but useless, as well as the mydsl menu choices - useless.
When I reselect ( install) them from mydsl-menu, I now have 2 listings
in MyDSL... These were saved in the backup, as well as the things I wanted.
Of course, the only reason I did a backup in the first place was to
save bookmarks, high scores, cache, etc...
Maybe there is a way to "uninstall" the mydsl extensions before making
I could choose to backup the files the extensions installed,
then the icons and menus would be useful..
but that would be HUGE !!
Or, make several different filetool.lst files, like filetool.firefox, filetool.desktop.
Then, make choices in the menu under file restoration for each...
Perhaps this is where cbagger01 and roberts idea of a Myfirefox.tar.gz,
MyDesktop.tar.gz, etc would work, rather than letting the BACKUP utility
handle all the chores...
I enjoy the mydsl and mydsl-menu options
I also enjoy the backup & restore features, especialy on bootup
They don't seem to get along with each other , unless I get creative
with editing the filetool.lst each time I backup
( for ex: removing /home/damnsmall from filetool.lst, and substituting only
parts of it, like /home/damnsmall/.phoenix /home/damnsmall/.xgalaga )
