Configuration guide    Last updated: April 12th 2005

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
