Onebase provides configuration tools to assist you in many tasks. This guide explains the
usage of these tools and how to perform manual configuration.
For managing Boot services
All the bootservices and bootconfiguration files of Onebase are placed in /OL-boot folder.
You can enable a particular bootservice by entering the name of the service in /OL-boot/config/rc.setup file.
To disable a service enabled by Onebase, simply delete its symlink from /OL-boot/bootscripts/defrun folder
Set default desktop
If you have installed a desktop from OL-apps like for example KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox etc..
and you want it to be the default desktop when you boot Onebase, then use ol-desk program
to configure it for you.
- ol-desk : To setup desktop environments
Gallery based operations
This is related with package management for performing gallery oriented operations.
Using ol-apps program, you can Update gallery database, Change repositories Stable/Unstable,
Check binary package creation eligability.
- ol-apps : For OL-apps gallery operations
Using ol-media program, you can configure your Video color depth, resolution. Set Video

For autoloading kernel modules
Onebase recommends compiling your required kernel modules as builtins using ol-ki program.

Anyway if you prefer loading modules on system bootup
instead of builtins then enter your module name in /OL-boot/config/rc.setup file -> MODULES variable
For configuring your printer install cups, gimp-print and also if any special drivers
available for your printer in the gallery. The easiest way for configuring the
printer is by using the kprinter program of the KDE desktop suite.
