    I have to retrack my previous statement -- using 'top' I've noted that nscan is taking a lot of cpu (between 40 - 60 %) which may indeed be related to my slow input responses.

    My external USB harddrive has in excess of 80G (more likely 100G+) of music...

    BTW: Thanks Enforcer for fixing my previous post (I totally missed you doing that)!

    More questions as I work through my issues....

    Given nm as the choosen method to manage network connections -- is it able to switch between different networks *automagically*? In other words, if I have a list of available networks, can I configure nm to switch to the one in view?

    nm should try to "autoconnect" to any accesspoint in view that you have previously established a connection. But, nm has to be currently in a "disconnected" state for that auto-magic to happen.... if that makes any sense. I notice it can take a while for nm to realize that I drove away from my accesspoint about a mile ago.

    I would say thats what is causing it to lag. I disable nscan in the /etc/matchbox/session file and only run it when i need it through the terminal. i have like 200 GB of stuff for nscan to scan which is why i would like to be able to specify nscan do scan only music or videos or whatnot. i would disable nscan, run it through terminal, when its done(not sure how to detect this) restart and see if you are still lagging.

    for wireless, i use wifi radar. but im not sure if you can actually be connected to more than 1 access point at once, which would give you a constant internet connection while driving. my answer is get a cell phone that you can use as an access point and connect to that!

    Thanks Kevin && Superman....

    Next question -- the application list within nghost doesn't include things that normally fall under admin for ubuntu. So how does one change settings like the time to suspend? I know there has to be a config file for it somewhere, just not sure where to look for it (other than under /etc)


    BTW: boot time (for me -- includes 15seconds power on delay) was/is 46 seconds, which is about a 5 - 7 second improvement.

    for apps to appear, there has to be an item in /usr/share/applications. linuxice does not install many of the app gui's that allow you to do certain things, such as the update manager is not installed. for you to change things with a gui, you have to install the app gui. if you want to edit the config files for things, im sure google will help out with that, it has helped me customize matchbox and the autologin when upgrading.

    Updates,

    1. I committed out nscan within my .xsession file (to stop it running) and yes, that has improved the button press issue.

    2. I also added the following to .xsession (right before the last command) to address screen blanking:

    xset -dpms // This *should* turn off the dpms power management stuff
    xset s noblank // This should turn off screen blanking
    xset s off // This turns off the screen saver

    So yes, continuing to knock-off issues for my system install. But my list isn't clear yet

    Today's question -- control of nghost is from touchscreen (and mouse), are there any other methods supported? For example, could I use a joystick to switch between the different buttons?

    Thanks again, for all the support.
