I'm just torn at the moment about whether or not to install Bumblebee. (the program to control Optimus)
And yes, everything is working better and faster than the orange distro I had before. Even been able to get my settings back copying my old settings from the previous distro. Doing so one at a time of course as needed. i.e. got my bookmarks, history for FF, my Rednotebook journal entries that I use for keeping a journal. Very happy so far!!
Hey VastOne! Hope your doing well! I have a quick question. When I reboot, after typing in my password to login, I get a little rotating circle thingy that eventually turns into a message telling me the Xfce panel hasn't started. I edited the 'session and startup' to uncheck the kill panel since it isn't starting by default. So how do I get rid of the message? I don't want the panel to start. I have to cancel out like 6 little dialog boxes and then all is fine.
So far everything is going great with this and I'm very thankful to you! I wont be back on-line till this afternoon. So no hurry...
^ My guess is that you have several panels running at the same time, possibly from a saved Xfce session. Or that you have something running/starting that is depending on the panel.
I have not seen anything like this. You can use top or htop or xfce4-taskmanager to figure out what it is causing these messages.
You can completely delete that Kill Xfce-Panel entry from Session and Startup. That will make sure it never comes up again

Please check to see if Task Manager is installed. It is in the right click menu under System... If not.
sudo apt-get install xfce4-taskmanger
Login and do not stop anything.. Run Task Manager ... take a snapshot of it so I can see everything running.
^ It is very obvious what they are..
xfce4-panel --preferences --display :0.0 --sm-client-id
I have never seen those before... You are saying that the message you have to clear 12 times is Xfce panel hasn't started?
I am searching to find out what this may be.
Also, I only have conky autostarting in one spot in the application autostart section of the 'session and startup' yet the task-manager shows it started twice. This is also happening every boot/login. Any ideas?
Ahhhhhhh. You are the master. I am your humble old geezer!!! 4 seconds after hitting enter to log-in, and I'm in! 2 seconds later I'm typing you this message! All is wonderful!!!
Delete these directories
Lets see what this does...
Remember that the things in
are in /etc/skel and we can get those back if we need to.
Edit - So it solved with the
