Re: FREE! MX18 Minimal Installset

Yes, lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf stays. Only downside is that I have to type user name --maybe I can tweak it a bit. It looks okay, just have to type. 9_9 Lazy and all that. NOTE: Found it in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf [CORRECTED: Removed duplicate greeter-hide-users] [SeatDefaults] . . . greeter-hide-u...

Re: FREE! MX18 Minimal Installset

I think this is really just an exercise for people who have limited hardware, or an obsessive desire for speed. :) On the T430 in my sig on a new install I removed the following, which I never use, after saving copies of the art work to put back into /usr/share/backgrounds/, after this operation: ap...
