Where's my system settings?


Does Mandrake 9.1 have a system setting feature. I would like to know what the settings are i.e. when the computer goes into standby mode and other settings like that.

Thanks

check out your mandrake control center. it will ask for the root pasword. go to start and find configuration it should be listed there, providing it was installed.
good luck.

Hi bear7,

Where this is set up depends on which type of Desktop you are running, if you are using the "default" or "kde" then goto "Contol Centre" under "Configuration" on the main menu. This will bring up the window which allows you to configure various settings etc.

If you are using Gnome goto "Configuration" --> "GNOME" --> "GNOME Control Centre" then select "Screensaver", "Advanced"
