I'm trying the Mint Fluxbox Beta 028 and ust about everything seems to be going very smoothly. I've got it going on an old 500 MHz Pentium III from a 2000 era Dell L500r. I had previously tried the XFCE edition but hadn't been blown away by its svelteness, or lack there of.
Anyway, I've noticed that the blinking lock icon, indicating Mint is checking for updates, is blinking quite often (every 15 to 30 min I think - no exact timing by me) and I'm wondering if and where the setting to adjust the auto-update check frequency might be found? I'm thinking once/day is plenty adequate.
That's my main question, but I'm also planning on googling for instructions on adding/removing items from the desktop (desktop shortcut only thing there now, and kind of ugly ), changing the number of desktops (2 is plenty for my old beast), lowering the key-repeat sensitivity for my keyboard (a second on the backspace and an entire line is gone), and figuring out why I can't get Chicken-of-the-VNC to connect from my OS X machine.
answers to any of those questions would also be helpful, but I imagine in time, I'll find them out there on the tubes somewhere.
