Hi Neal, thanks I have tried the config method numerous times but it never sticks. Managed to find the actual config files (but now cannot find them again! bother) and it has stuck across a reboot so it sounds as though there is some problem with the script to write the config file?
Re root, I always run as root, PC technician for about 20 years running across multiple os's, hard drives, systems and plugged in external drives.
If an OS stays on my machine for more than 6 months it's doing very well.
, otherwise it all gets to complicated with permissions etc
Love LXDE, so fast and does so much!
PClinuxos people are also so very helpful!
