Hello all,

Just wanted to give you a little update on my antiX w/ KDE 4.4. This is on my little netbook I take everywhere with me as I travel a lot for work.

Installed custom splash screen

My desktop

Showing antiX handling multiple apps simultaneously - Desktop switching enabled with compositing in KDE

Desktop cube enabled with compositing in KDE

I was able to finally try the plasma-netbook interface and I did not like it after all. Thanks again to Anti and the antiX team!

V/R,
Nats

Fn Keys now work

Updated first post now that I have the Fn Keys working... No longer an open issue :spinonhead:

All I had to do was add "acpi_osi=Linux" parameter to the GRUB boot loader menu.lst boot option. Wish I figured this out back in March.
