The screen is stalled on a new install at "starting wicd daemon, will this time out eventually? Or can I go back and deselect that option to start at start up but doing , "linux boot"? Or may I have to start from scratch? Frank
Solved, I forced shutdown with powerbutton, not knowing how to software from menu. I restarted in text mode, entered username and password. and as prompted on screen..startxcf4 or something like that.
