Cherokee Unicode in Linux

On Zenwalk just copy the contents to a file either named cherokee, che, or whatever you want the file named. I have it named usche because I had edited the us symbol file to make it.

Then save the file under /etc/X11/xkb/symbols

On other linux distro's the xkb directory might be somewhere else.

partial alphanumeric_keys modifier_keys 
xkb_symbols "basic" {

    name[Group1]= "Cherokee";

While using KDE 3.5.9 on Slack 12.1, I installed a couple of programs that I always use; very common stuff.

I don't know if that was the cause, but at some point, when I plugged in my flashdrive, I did not see it popping up on my desktop.

I looked for it on the file manager and when clicking on Storage Media, I got this message:

Since my last post on this....I spent quite a long time using sidux - which was excellent.

But I'm now back with Kubuntu, because the sidux lot, decided to use a different network configuration tool. Which I found out doesn't like my network card at all - there was a work round for it but it would only work with the live version of sidux, not the installed version.

And I only found that out as I managed to screw up when I got a new monitor and was trying to configure...

The whole point of this tutorial is to help with usability, and on that subject one of the things i find slightly lacking in webmin is the mysql administration. Albeit use able its not all that refined. The fix I find for this is installing phpmyadmin . Its pretty useful for user administration and has a hell of a web interface. Its also really easy to install.

SSH in to the system , as at this point theres no use for a monitor since webmin can take care of just about anything you need...
