D'oh!!!!! Turns out, you can just drag and drop 'em from the applications menu, to the desktop and/or the top bar!

Yes! One problem solved!

Now I can be happy![The other problem- i.e. constantly being prompted to authenticate when messing with configuration/etc. won't be too much of an issue in the future, once i have everything set up the way I want it]

Wow....been using Debian for a week, already. Me rikey![Translation: "I like it"]. Not one problem; hiccup or bug! Amazing! Since migrating all my junk over from Ubuntu, I have had no need to boot-up Ubuntu. I'm even getting a little adventurous- I've installed Openbox.

I'd like to write a little review of Debian from a noob's perspective (I feel that it is easily mature enough now for first-tme Linux users)....where's the best place to put it? Debian section? Here? ___????

Best thing would be to start your own LQ blog. See the sidebar "New Blog Entry" --------------------------------------->
