LiveCD login

20 Nov


Quick update …. apparently it should be ok if gdm has been installed … well gdm has been installed from the beginning, so it must be something else.  What I’ve done is given root a password and see if the LiveCD will login using root and the root password – IMO it’s worth a shot.  In anticipation of a successful outcome I’ve put the Ubuntu Installer and the User Desktop configuration to give a working example of the System.

Got the eqf files for audacious but haven’t had a chance to import them.  With sound Xfce 4.4 doesn’t have a Sound Profile editor – that’s in 4.6 but you can add some experimental configurations with libcanberra to get them going.  Thar dependency is not native to the 8.04 repositories so it’ll need compiling.  This will be done at some unspecified time in the future as I’ve read a number of failure in forum posts.  What I will have is a play  login and logout sound script and add that to autoplay and in one of the x11 logout/shutdown files (will find that out).  So people … you will have to do without clicking beeping ringing and buzzing tones for all your Desktop functions …. actually I would have turned them off – annoying!!
