Again this is a list of files that may be in your backup or persistent home that would need to be copied over from etc/skel

1. .xinitrc
2. .jwmrc
3. .fluxbox/menu
4. .fluxbox/
5. .xtdesktop/Ted.lnk
6. .torsmorc

Please initially test with the base and norestore options.
When reporting bugs please verify that it occurs in the base, i.e., base and norestore options.

Report problems with user contributed extensions in the Community MyDSL extensions section of the board.

Report all others in this thread.

Too many people to thank for their bug reports and suggestions, for this cut. It has been a real community effort. John and I listen to the community and this is how we proceed to try to make DSL better. We thank all of you for your participation.

Direct code contributions (outside John and myself):
Thanks to mikshaw for ucitool.lua
Thanks to cbagger for pendrive display option mod.

And thank you to Clacker for pointing out how to grab a substring in Lua4.
substring = strsub( mystring, strfind(mystring, ""))

...used in dMix.
