Thank you for the information. Is there a command I can use to locate errors only?

/var/log/messages should contain what you're looking for.

Of course in many countries - like Brazil and various autonomous communities in Spain Linux is the main desktop in administration and schools.....

I am seen some error messages when I boot my computer. Desktop appears to be working OK but I would like to review and try to fix them. Where do I locate these messages? What commands can I use to locate and review these messages?

I agree with you, Nightflier. Linux always had and always will have its place. It certainly matters to the people that are using it, that's for sure. Bigger market share for Linux might be closer than it seems too. It might take just that one tipping point where masses start to use Linux.

I've recently upgraded from VL Light 7.1 to Light 7.2, and I see that "numlockx" is no longer in the gslapt repository.  Does the newer X server in VL 7.2 make it unnecessary?  I'd like to restore the behavior I had with VL 7.1, but I don't know if there are some new X.org configuration options that will force numlock ON every time the X server starts up.
 
The ideal configuration would turn numlock ON only when a keboard with more than 87 keys is connected, but I don't know if that can be automated.  My second choice would be to turn numlock ON only when an external keyboard is connected to my laptop.  As a last resort, I'd settle for using a configuration setting or script file to enable a static configuration.  That's what I did with VL Light 7.1, but I don't know how to do the same thing in 7.2 without "numlockx."  Any suggestions?

I enjoyed using fishshell with VL Lite 7.1, but it looks like it hasn't been packaged for VL 7.2.  Is there any chance the current version (2.7.1) could be added to the 7.2 repository?

I see Cricket Wireless have a couple of flip phones available, and voice+text starting at $25/mo.

The whole Linux Desktop discussion has gone on for years. There is no doubt that the duopoly of MS and Apple has remained safe from being overthrown by it, but I disagree that it "never mattered". It has provided a haven for those computer users who want to have control over their computers, and continues to do so. I suspect that the Linux Desktop will continue to be available and supported long after Windows Phones are gone.

No cables here, save electric power. I'm having trouble finding flip phones now, or the service that goes with them. Got any pointers?

"This is so patently untrue that it’s breathtaking. Yes, people can get basic computer functions from Linux, and even advanced functionality. What they can’t get is an experience that easily blends with other devices or computing experiences they already own."

This may be an old thread, but please allow me to comment here. For me this isn't an issue, because I don't have any other devices. I have one computer - a desktop, which I'm using to post this - and a "dumb" (i.e. non-smart) phone.

I suspect there are others in the same boat.
