Do I just remove the XF86 packages and install the X11 ones? It seems to be a rather major system
change, so I wanted to check before screwing everything up...

Ive tries using fat32 for a partition mounted as /home but it seems lack of permissions wont let debian boot regular users to the gui. Any suggestions so users
in both OS's can use this partition as thier home?

09:36 < Lusule> still having a few problems with my fluxbox startup config
09:37 < chaddy> you putting startup programs in with an ampersand after them?
09:37 < Lusule> yes, the problem is with keyboards atm
09:37 < Lusule> i've read that to specify my keyboard type in fluxbox, i need to add Option XkbLayout to the
Input Device Identifier keyboard section of xorg.conf
09:37 < chaddy> ?
09:38 < Lusule> but i can't work out what my keybaord type actually is
09:38 < Lusule> i tried 'uk' and that didn't work
09:38 < Lusule> i need my windows key back, half my shortcuts are tied to it ><
09:38 < chaddy> hang on I'll post the relevant line
09:39 < chaddy> Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
09:40 < Lusule> aha thanks!

09:41 < chaddy> s/ouo/ou
09:41 < Lusule> yep

09:42 < chaddy> runs independent of X, so you don't need to appear to disappear every time you
09:42 < Lusule> people keep talking about it, but as far as I've heard, its main use is if i'm likely to
want to use IRC on multiple computers
09:42 < Lusule> oh that does sound useful
09:42 < chaddy> irssi + screen + ssh
09:42 < chaddy> lovely
09:43 < Lusule> what's the ssh part for?
