I posted to the original post also, hope that's ok? Feel free to delete any or all of this subject...
My #1. Logout showing up: I have found this only to be a problem if EFFECTS are turned ON (Not that big of a deal). Tested on A> a intel dual quad with amd radeon 6870 using suggested 11.3 & radeon hd 2000 & newer driver B> a HP 3.2 laptop zd8000 with ATI Tech. M24 1P radeon mobility x600 ogl 1.4 mesa 7.5.2 & C> asus p4 2.4 nvidia Geforce 4 ogl 1.5.8 nvidia 96.43.18 (again, no big deal and I did try all the effect options, only one makes a difference is ENABLE box)
NEW: I found I can Make the shutdown dialog easy to read again (after enabling effects) by changing a option in desktop themes. Action taken:
Configure Desktop> Workspace Appearance and Behavior> Workspace Appearance> Desktop Theme> Details (TAB)> Shutdown Dialog (at bottom of list).
I changed From: Glassified Shutdown Dialog To: Oxygen Shutdown Dialog, Then clicked Apply. Now has nice dark background and is easy to read...
#2 Backup: thanks for the info. Have not tried it yet, but at least I now have a backup option.
#3 The Karaoke more songs package in the repository appears to be the same songs as that already installed in Full Monty (Also not a big deal)
The good far out weighs any minor things I might like to change/add. Most users may never notice or care about. EDIT: All Good Now!
Thanks for your time, Dan
