General Support / Auto login and lightdm?
March 01, 2013, 04:37:45 PM
Has anyone been successful at getting autologin, lightdm, and XFCE working?  I have a Linux machine that I "shadow" with No Machine.  I can't connect unless 1) somehow have lightdm as a registered NX User or 2) start up a session at the machine, then flip over to my workstation and then start up No Machine.  Google doesn't seem to want to provide the goods (or I cannot find the magic incantation)

After VastOne showed me how to "fix" the apt-listbugs problem, I've had "nothing but net" ;)
The only thing I've found is that apt-xapian-index would be nice if it was there out of the box.
For those who don't know what it is, it allows the "quick search" in synaptic (you have to run update-apt-xapian-index after installing it)
The rest was my "preferences".
I did trash tint2 and installed Cairo Dock (I suppose that's my siduction, fuduntu pollution), but after that, I'm sitting idle under 300mb (I remember when a 20 mb harddrive was big).
It seems I cannot install anything (or dist-upgrade) since Retrieving Bug Reports seems to hang (tho I have an internet connection).  Is there a way to bypass this?
General Support / LinuxLex-8 icons
February 13, 2013, 02:10:36 PM
I'm as cool as the next guy with the "shiny appearance" of vsido out of the box.
But to quote  Raj Koothrappali from the "Big Bang Theory", "Satin pajamas in satin sheets made me fall out of bed 2 times".  So, if I tone down the shinyness and change the icons, I get missing icons in tint2.  I know I can "fix" this, but is there something out of the box that was overlooked?
General Support / will vsido install on existing lvm

I have a pc that came with lvm (formerly a RHEL pc).  I should have taken the time to re-partition, but I didn't.  Will vsido install on an existing LVM scheme?
