    sounds like a great idea!!!
    though i'm afraid i'm still a bit of a panzy when it comes to terminal literacy.but i do like this idea. thanx

    cool!i like it!!
    the main issue really is that no apps actually run,apart from appearing in the launcher baron the l;eft of screen.
    in short i cant use anything!!! well,no tmuch. and many of the apps that do appear/load on desktop dont function too well. eg,museek wont connect or certain function are greyed out,that is inactive/locked.

    ahhhh! so the paths to apps goes in that manner? cool! thanx!
    will try that for sure,tho its a hassle having to do that allthe time,it may help.
    the first suggestion i have tried, using the dash! it sometimes worked,but still mostly got the same glitches.
