comment Leafpad ignoring gtkrc
Only IceWM, no DE and no prior .gtkrc-2.0. I put the config info in /usr/share/themes/Default/gtk-2.0-key/gtkrc and then it worked. I deleted .gtkrc-2.0 from home but found it was still needed. Then removed from /usr/.../gtkrc and it still worked. Now Leafpad reads config changes directly from the .gtkrc-2.0 in home directory.

comment Kernel Mode Setting vs. Framebuffer?
Wiki articles about KMS are easy to find, but the explanations are terrible. How can KMS supersede the fb and at the same time enable it? The fb already supported native resolution, so what is different? Do fb utilities work with KMS?

comment Automount USB drives with no GUI requirement (halevt replacement)
Been trying this on two Debian machines, but it doesn't work well. 1. All devices are mounted as root. 2. Auto-unmounting sometimes fails, leaving a node that is persistent through a reboot. 3. Some unpowered drives don't get mounted at all. 4. Several times failed transfer of files. I've had none of these problems with halevt.

I'm hoping for a simple solution like halevt, just "Install <package> and you are done." I'll have to look at those packages.
