    Hello,

    could somone of the forum moderators be so kind
    and move this topic to the forum "News"?

    I don't know why but I am not allowed to post
    new topics in the forum "News".

    Thank you and bye
    Karl

    schock,

    Only mods can begin posts in the News forum, but I will move this post to News. I don't have time right now, but you might want to add this (or a link to this) in the Docs section. The Docs section is a wiki so anyone can add to it. Just click the "edit" button at the bottom of the proper page.

    Hello Aay,

    > I will move this post to News.

    Thank you very much.

    > you might want to add this (or a link to this) in the Docs section

    That's a good idea. I added links in FaqUsing, GetSupport and KnoppixLinks.

    > Oh and by the way, nice work!

    For your pleasure.

    Bye

    I have found a bug in your tutorial

    In Lesson 2 - Configuring Knoppix, I. Configuring the screen, 2. Use the KDE Control Panel, you say
    Click there with your left mouse button at the tab "Index" first on "Peripherals" and there on "Display". With this you open the "XFree86 Configuratin"-window
    However I can find nowhere an option to open KXConfig there. You seem to imply that KXConfig will open automatically. That would be really neat, but the only way I have found to run KXConfig is with Alt+F2, I didn't even know that such a useful thing existed.

    I'm using Knoppix 3.5 LinuxTag DVD with lang=en, but the same applies to 3.4.

    Spelling errors

    I noticed a repeating spelling error. The word "than" is incorrect and should be "then" in most places.

    Other than that it's nice to see somebody making yet a Knoppix tutorial.

    No option is necessary.

    > You seem to imply that KXConfig will open automatically.

    Yes. A **click on "Display"** opens the KXConfig-Window
    automatically as you can see in the image beneath the text.

    Indeed, this error occurs more often "then" tolerable

    Tutorial - Spelling Errors

    I found the posts about the word "than" being misused a bit odd.
    I didn't find any instances of the words "than" or "then" being used incorrectly. I have to assume that the document has been updated since these previous posts.
