More newbie questions:
1. How do i save the root desktop config? Every time i reboot i revert back to the firecracker wallpaper. (disregard this one, just found the answer.)
2. Is it possible to log into one desktop as 'home user' and another as 'root' during the same session? if so, how?
3. How do i get apps to open anywhere but the upper left hand corner, and stay that way?
yeah i am... ;D ;D ;D ;D maybe coz i know the answers....
To log into X twice, go to a terminal as the second user and type startx -- :1
this will open it in X thinggie 1, not 0 which is the default.
This will be ctrl-alt-f8
i assume you can continue thru :2 :3 etc as well
Re the program start position, try looking in the window manager settings,eg sawfish, kwin metacity
