Re: Auto-suspend when idle

is this the original problem: But after it wakes from key/LAN/RTC, it won't auto-suspend again. Not until I unlock it, at least. ??? have you tried to disable the screenlocker (if it is lightlocker, i think uninstalling will do) to see if it works properly without locking? all in all, this is a very...

Re: Auto-suspend when idle

Re: Change Text Selection Cursor Hotspot Topic is solved

no, it shouldn't be like that.
could be a virtualisation problem, i've had weird cursors on virtualbox sometimes.

for general info, you could post the output of

Code: Select all

lspci -k


if burning cds bothers you, maybe the plop boot manager can help.

Re: autostart and lxterminal

if it works manually, i'd write a wrapper script and point your autostart to that.

Re: automount FM options

It seems that it is PCman volume management which is doing this is it? if so, i suspect it is hardcoded to open pcmanfm as a filemanager. but don't take my word for it. i don't think that xfe offers that sort of daemon mode. it's possible to write a udev rule that gets executed whenever you insert ...
