#echo "tjener:/skole/tjener/home0 /skole/tjener/home0 nfs bg,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,timeo=14,intr 0 0" >> /etc/fstab

Back at home from working on the road and got another tutorial in the bag.

GDM, the Gnome Display Manager and the login window.

This tutorial is a first for me where I have set it up so you can click to navigate to anyone of six topics all involving the login window.
1. Changing the Default System Session.

lxde and sound

Posted 03-17-2012 at 06:11 PM by campanula

Decided to move to lxde due to repeatedly disappearing panel in xfce...

Whilst I like a quite minimal view for my desktop, not really convinced I like the menu button with no text, and the only option is the location of the button logo. So I just modified it in GIMP to add 'Menu' next to the icon.

hmmm, the logout button doesn't work... That happened...
