Someone has to know how


A few questions:

---in knoppix---

What file do I edit to add/subtract applications at startup.

How would I edit this file to startup firefox on boot?

Is it possible to start firefox in fullscreen mode?


This is a start...


Mike

From what I have found on the internet....it seems that disabling the X button, minimize, or maximize buttons could be difficult...


Any advice?

Are you trying to create some kind of kiosk system? Take a look at:

If you run the browser in the root window then it will not have close buttons etc.

The root window is the X server itself. Usually the window manager takes the root window but if you don't have a window manager loaded then you can just open any other window in the X server.
