    Question Knoppix 8.1 USB-stick installation

    Successfully installed release 8.1 on USB stick...works great on my AMD desktop with dual screens, though two minor issues: 1) Screen layout configured with xrandr to my needs - file saved in --->knoppix/.screenlayout with name ScreenLayout.sh. After reboot the system does not boot with this configuration and I have to configure each time I start the computer. 2) Running ->System Settings, ->Workspace Themes ->Cursor Theme I change the mouse cursor to "redglass 48". After reboot the system does not boot with this configuration either and I have to configure the mouse cursor theme each time I start the computer. What do I do wrong? Is there an easy fix which I can do myself?

    Question

    I'm just wondering: Does it make any sense to look at "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" for a solution to the issue? Here are Section Monitor and Section Device:------------ -------------- --------- --
    # Monitor section --->auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxorgconfig Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" ModelName "Generic Monitor" # HorizSync 28.0 - 78.0 # Warning: This may fry very old Monitors # HorizSync 28.0 - 96.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors # VertRefresh 50.0 - 76.0 # Very conservative. May flicker. # VertRefresh 50.0 - 60.0 # Extreme conservative. Will flicker. TFT default. Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS,AUTO" EndSection . . ----------------

    # Section "Device" ---> ### Available Driver options are:- # sw_cursor is needed for some ati and radeon cards #Option "sw_cursor" #Option "hw_cursor" #Option "NoAccel" #Option "ShowCache" #Option "ShadowFB" #Option "UseFBDev" #Option "Rotate" Identifier "Card0" # Driver (chipset) autodetect VendorName "All" BoardName "All" # BusID "PCI:1:0:0" # compiz, beryl 3D-Support with DRI & Composite Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true" # Some Radeon cards don't handle this well. # Option "EnablePageFlip" "true" Option "TripleBuffer" "true" # Tweaks for the xorg 7.4 (otherwise broken) "intel" driver # Option "Tiling" "no" Option "Legacy3D" "false" # These two lines are (presumably) needed to prevent fonts from being scrambled Option "XaaNoScanlineImageWriteRect" "true" Option "XaaNoScanlineCPUToScreenColorExpandFill" "true" EndSection------------

    [SOLVED] Knoppix 8.1 USB-stick installation

    Thanks for the hint... yes I did and it solved issue #2 - Mouse cursor configuration remains after reboot as desired. For issue #1 - Screen layout - I just change the video cable connections to the PC.

    I'm not really happy with the solution though ...
    because now I have trouble to get the cursor size bigger.
    I would like to have redglass 48, which I can choose in System Settings, as default and available after each reboot.

    I'm confused...
    here redglass shows up ( size 18 though). Which of the config files is responsible when booting?
