I had a good think about Mélodie's last post and finally decided to leave things at the last edit I did and burn an iso to check. Have just done that and loaded it into the duo-core with wide screen monitor. The live cd worked fine, and I think I was getting a bit wound up in the confusion between the live cd and after install. Anyway, all is well, and I will upload it soon. Got all its tweaks and mods done now.
I've heard it said that the easiest way is often the best way.
djohnson, you too seem to be a fan of the KISS principle
. I have set BlackCat to auto login with appropriate wallpaper, but as I said in a previous post, I will try Mélodie's suggestion on another build. I really wasn't sure which way to go - the modified gdm page does seem more, how should I put this, um, professional? Now, don't everyone start throwing shoes at me for that
. Anyway it's something else to try out.
By the way, I posted a query here http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,97500.0.html
, as it is Thunar related and it seemed the appropriate place to start. But I will draw your attention to it in case you haven't seen it and might have some ideas.
