1) Get used to the command line. It doesn't bite, and one can provide CLI instructions *much* faster than gui instructions.
2) probably wm/desktop-environment specific; digging out some information on what you have might get you more help.
3) I don't have the slightest idea of what it is you want.

I recommend that you read `Smart Questions' (ESR), and `Bug Reports' (linked to by SQ).
