Rollup with double click on title bar is now working.
I had the line "TitleBarMaximizeButton=1 # [0-5] " just disabled with # and that did not work.

In the early days with RedHat double click on the title bar was always roll-up.
A tradition which Fluxbox still continuous.  Grin
For me unknown reason that double click was changed to maximize.  Tongue
I personally have seldom a need to maximize a window, however, quite often to roll-up.

grep xkb_model /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[    58.376] (**) Option "xkb_model" "evdev"
[    58.403] (**) Option "xkb_model" "evdev"
[    58.406] (**) Option "xkb_model" "evdev"
[    58.407] (**) Option "xkb_model" "evdev"
[    58.410] (**) Option "xkb_model" "evdev"

In my working box that is pc104.

BTW the burn program flburn works perfectly. I think better than xfburn.
That program could not burn on a certain DVD whereas flburn could.

The virtual machine should have a way to do that.

Look under shared folder.

If you know how to use winscp you could use that to
log into the virtual machine and do it that way.

It seems "at" is not started on login.
Mea culpa. Can't decide whether to put service selection back on vasm menu as-is, or keep trying to find time to edit it.    
As root, start 'vsrvset' and select 'at' on any runlevels you want it for.

Can't get Alt+F12 to work.
I'm guessing that X doesn't know it's an "extended" keyboard. I don't know how to fix it the correct way using xorg.conf.d, but someone else might. Please post the output of
grep xkb_model /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Would like that on double-click of title bar window would roll-up
instead of maximize. How to do?

#  TitleBar mouse-button double click to maximize the window
TitleBarMaximizeButton=0 # [0-5]

#  TitleBar mouse-button double click to rollup the window
TitleBarRollupButton=1 # [0-5]
Since maximize double-click on button 1 is the compiled-in default, you do have to disable that (like above) for putting rollup there to work. Restart IceWM.

block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

means that it is now mounted but you can not write to it as you would for example a usb stick. you can point your favorite file manager to it however and play the music or watch the video or wat have you

Moved /etc/at.deny to /etc/at.deny and "at" now accepts user.  Smiley

I needed this info right now. Thank you.
mv /etc/ /etc/at.deny, right?

Yes, however, it seems "at" is not started on login. One has to go as root to /etc/rc.d/init.d
./at start

Sorry about that, but the operating system that I am using is Vector Linux 7.0, and the video card that I am using is an MSI  GeForce 210, and the tearing effect starts whenever I play any videos.

I don't know if that is of any help or not.

Followed these instructions:

Now that Xorg doesn't use the configuration from hal (in Debian unstable starting january 2010), the only way to “statically” configure scrolling in trackpoint is udev. (for other people, xinput method, works fine). This method will be gone (_again_) in not too long so it might be a better idea to use xinput way. YMMV.

Create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/99_trackpoint.rules as root with the following content:

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="xorg_trackpoint_end"
KERNEL!="event*", GOTO="xorg_trackpoint_end"

ENV{ID_PATH}!="platform-i8042-serio-1", GOTO="xorg_trackpoint_end"

ENV{x11_options.XAxisMapping}="6 7"


Save and restart udev then Xorg (or it'll be enabled at next reboot).
The ID_PATH used in the example above is a typical value. To determine the ID_PATH appropriate to the TrackPoint on a specific model see Determining TrackPoint Path ID

No luck. How/where do I look within the system to find the trackpad?
Thanks, Keith
