Xubuntu 7.10 config issues


Hi,

I upgraded to 7.10 and tried to get my X configs migrated along, but they won't stick???

1. when I configure sound for login/logout, something unconfigures it ... and it is not the X server startup things because it does it even when X is not restarted ... I open the loging config in Applications->settings->login window, I configure the sound in accesibility tab, I close the thing, I reopen it, and what I just configured is gone??? There are 3 sounds you can figure, the deconfigure themselves in random order ????

2. I have a .Xmodmap in my root, it doesn't seem to take it??? How can I force my key setting, then?

On these two first, the behavior is consistent between a clean install an a migrated install from 6.10.


3. And a more annoying problem, Xubuntu sometimes (well, oftentimes) hangs at startup. That is, after the grub menu, the Xubuntu screen comes up, does the first thing (i.e. a little movement on the progress bar) and then stops. Forever or until the pc is switched off. Any idea, anyone?

This rather unstable behavior is unsettling, I never had that kind of issues with Drake ... but then I run now on a new Dell E6550, 2G RAM pc, normally, life should get better???

(just for the record, it came preloaded with Vista, which was soooooo slooooow that I didn't even make it thru the install completely ...)

Any ideas, anyone?

Regards,

Peter

Gutsy upgrade seems to be a bit messy, especially when there's a lot of software added that isn't part of the default install. A Clean install (what I ended up doing) will fix everything.

Do it manually by editing /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom
Look in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf for details.

Probably something got messed up with splash during the upgrade.
Open /boot/grub/menu.lst for editing and remove the word splash from from the line

defoptions=quiet splash

as well as from your kernel options (the line beginning with /vmlinuz-2.6...)
