Well I've now installed Debian Sarge for the third time this time following the fine advice given to look at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=224547
which led me to this awesome website, so if your struggling with Debian look at this. (The only thing I did different was to install XFCE4 instead of windowmaker) XFCE is great....http://osnews.com/story.php?news_id=2016
Anyway I have a problem, I used synaptic to download things like OpenOffice, thats all done now, but I've rebooted several times and still XFCE doesn't load the icons into it's menu.
I can't find the executable files or icons (used to winBLows sorry
) to load them up. It's not as if they are not installed as I can use the run command in the XFCE menu and get them running (for the most part).
Have I missed out part of the installation process? What do I need to do? Help!
well things have taken a turn for the worst, I thought it was just a glitch but it just happened again, the keyboard quit working on the laptop (I had to manual restart and get my spare keyboard from the attic, I'm not sure if it will solve the problem) without the keyboard of course I can't get to the command line to see whats going wrong. The computer and keyboard will work fine for about 15-20 mins then it will suddenly cease. Any ideas?
