I just switched to Mandrake 9.1 last night after several months of frustration with slackware 9.0 and I'm already much happier. Many things that never worked on slackware, worked right away on mandrake. For example, in slackware, whenever I started XMMS, it would hang for several minutes before starting up an mp3. Seems to work perfectly with mandrake. Also getting video files to work for the first time. I haven't had much opportunity to play around with mandrake yet, but I will report what else I find as I go along.
Here's one question:
The default arrangement for virtual desktops in Mandrake KDE is four desktops in a horizontal line, one after the next. Is there any way to arrange them differently. I'd like them to form a box, two on top, two below. Does anyone here know how to do this?
