$user = your username
The fonts are barely readable: fix by creating /home/$user/.Xresources
and add the following lines:
you will want to apt-get remove gdm, kdm, xdm, wdm
and apt-get install rungetty afterwards open /etc/inittab and modify this line 1respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
and change it to
1respawn:/sbin/rungetty tty1 --autologin $user
Now edit and to your /home/$user/.bash_profile
Code: Select all
if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && [ $(tty) == /dev/tty1 ]; then while [ 1 == 1 ] do startx sleep 10 done fi
Now concerning the issue of rebooting & shutting down after you have removed these logins manager.. I applied this tweak: Let a common user shutdown/reboot
Afterwards I created a little gui script & menu item to assist me in shutting down & rebooting:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh MSG="`which gxmessage`" || MSG=xmessage $MSG -buttons "Reboot:1,Shutdown:2,Cancel" -center -title "Quit" "Reboot or Shutdown ?" case $? in 1) 'reboot' ;; 2) 'halt' ;; *) exit ;; esac
Update your /etc/resolv.conf file by adding these lines & removing the others.
The first nameserver is that of OpenDNS: www.opendns.com
The second is that of OpenNIC: www.opennic.unrated.net
The third nameserver is: www.unifiedroot.com
For udhcpc you can add these lines at the bottom of both 'default.bound' & 'default.renew' Assuming you create a file named resolv.conf.txt in /etc with the alternative dns servers.
cp /etc/resolv.conf.txt /etc/resolv.conf
I have modified the puppy4 'Gradient-grey' gtk2 theme & have included my jwmrc file for those who might wish to use the themes with their configuration.
You will have to put the theme in /usr/share/themes & adjust your .gtkrc-2.0 file or use a theme switching utility.
