I put "exec konqueror" in .xinitrc in my home directory, but for some reason, the browser doesn't start on login. Any reasons for that? What am I doing wrong?
Is there a script somewhere (I couldn't find one) that I could easily implement on start up to keep people from closing the browser? I know nothing of scripting but I am not afraid to modify if there's a script that's close to what I need it to do.
Finally, is there a way I can enable a key combination for easy shut down... Ctrl-alt-backspace doesn't even manage to work correctly on this computer. I have staff that are going to be working with the machine that have NO experience with Linux. I don't want to have to ask them to get into a terminal and shut down, and the "logout" option on YDL doesn't allow for shutdown (you just kind of get thrown into oblivion.)
thanks in advance
Can't reply on you first questions, but I use YDL on a G3 ibook.
To shut down I choose logout from the bar , when you click the yellow dog. Then you get the login screen(they have more then one type) but they all have somewhere an option to shut down the system.
The screen with the big flower on the right has a bar at the bottom with a kind of round symbol, if you click it you get the choice of rebooting or shut down.
The grey in-log field has also this kind of options, but they are above the field.
You can change the options over SYSTEMSETINGS LOGIN SCREEN
Have a lot of fun
