Thanks to some awesome help from your support channel in IRC, I today managed to install PCLinuxOS and I really like it. A few months ago I got very interested in Linux and tried some different Distros, but never really felt 'at home'. I think PCLinuxOS might be it. I've updated this post as questions have risen, so the formatting might not be the best.Okay, after a boot to windows to play some games, my dual-monitor setup won't work. They worked perfect before that.
I tried unplugging one of the monitors to no avail. When I boot it only shows the left side of the desktop, and all programs seem to start on the right desktop.
ATI 4870 512mb. Using the proprietary drivers.
I am going to try to re-install PCLinuxOS, that should solve it. For now.
I am typing with a custom keyboard layout, and I DID get it to install properly for the first time in my linux history. There are, however, a few things that I need to change in it before I'm completely satisfied.
The changes I wish to do is.
Pressing Enter outputs backspace
Pressing caps-lock outputs enter
Pressing backspace outputs caps lock
Confusing indeed. Very effective, I've noticed.
The keyboard I use looks like so: http://aoeu.info/layouts/files/magnus-xkb-se
What changes should I do to achieve what I want?
xmodmap kinda does it, but not as effective as an edit here would. And I never got it to work *just* as I wanted it to.
Oh, and one last thing.
Every time I logout my keyboard is reset, and I need to open a terminal and type "setxkbmap se svorak" to enable mine. Is automation just a matter of creating one of those startup-scripts I've heard so much about and adding it there? I would try myself normally, but I'm too tired now.
I've played around ever more, and have some more questions that google can't seem to answer.
First, I can't find this effect, has it been removed?
Second: Chromium is giving me some problems. I can't reply, edit or quote posts. It works in Firefox.
