Hi, I'm having a lot of trouble with Slack.. GNOME is crashing and not only that, now when I startx only the desktop comes up, no menu, no icons, no nothing, just the wallpaper, I can't right click or do anything. Can somebody tell me how to fix this or how can i change to KDE from the console before I startx.. ANd my resolution stays really big, even I configure the xf86config.. I must be doing something wrong I guess.
LOke is all fix now.... No more worries I found the way to fix my resolution... All I did was before I changed to KDE with "xwmconfig" I ran "/usr/X11R6/bin/xfree86setup", then I started X..Went to /ect/X11/xf86config and added a module line with my desire resolutions... Now I have to Fix the mouse and my NIC card.. A question... Is my NIC card suppose to be "eth0"? .. Well if I find the answer I'll post it here... Lol I keep answering my own questions.... I have to say... Now I now why people love Slack so much.. It looks so much different from any other distro I have seen... I been up the whole night installing and configuring it, and I have to say..It pays off after all... I would do it again if I have to.. But now I know how to do it so it would take me haft the time lol...
My NIC is eth0. I have only one of those. In case you have a network you would probably have two of those on your gateway, the second one being eth1, check ifconfig for the info.
Do you like KDE? my choice is Fluxbox, much lighter, and does only what I need.
