Re: virtual file

I was trying to install computer-janitor from Linux Mint and then I received the message "This is a virtual File". Then it did not install and I would like to know what that means.

xscreensaver startup

Please help me to learn how to get "xscreensaver" to startup automagically. I have it listed in the startup app but it fails to launch successfully. I want to get the daemon to launch and for it to run as it should. Any help to get this running will be greatly appreciated.

Software List Page Numbers

I enjoy the variety that the software list offers. However it would be more helpful if someone would make the listing searchable by page number.

Zipped file of Tux downloadable

Is there somewhere on the web that I may post a "zipped" (compressed) file that contains a collection of Tux wallpapers that can be used as screensaver images for free? I use them and have even modified a few. I like to share. Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. :D

"Enter" command in startup

How do I enter the "Enter" command after a program name in the startup app? I'm trying to make the xscreensaver work 100%. Now it loads but it does not follow with the needed daemon. I have to do that manually at each start up. Any valid help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

[Solved] xscreensaver startup

In "startup" I have xscreensaver listed and it loads each time. However each time I need to open it up and press the OK button to load the daemon. Is there a way to get it to do it by itself at startup? Please advise this newbie.

Thank you! :)
