What happens if you remove xfce4-notifyd ?:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove xfce4-notifyd
?

If it threatens to remove anything else .. another way to disable it (rather than uninstalling it) is by running:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service.disabled

re-enable with:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service.disabled /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service

You'll probably need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

Trying out now on live usb.  Without a doubt a fair bit quicker and smoother than 3. Just needs a few additions and some cloud based program removal for my own taste.  I cant seem to create an account or password for the usb session though. Any ideas?

Has it ever been possible to create accounts on a "Live" USB ?

How did you create the LiveUSB, and is it persistent ?

Hey Mark, you posted a link to getting Skype working somewhere, and now I can't find it for the life of me. Could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

If you already have it installed, and it's the mic levels you're having problems with:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=10313.msg76522#msg76522
(is that the one you mean ?)

if you HAVEN'T got it installed, you'll need to activate the "Partner" and "Independent" repos in Synaptic .. THEN install skype.



Once you have PulseAsudio installed, you can go to:-

menu>Sound & Video>PulseAudio Volume Control>Input Devices
(tab)

and mess with the mic levels in there (mine are left=79 right=17)

but you MUST have told Skype NOT to automatically adjust the mic.
(explained in the link above)

I did ages ago. can't remember the distro.

3gb persistance.

It's not a massive issue.  it's just that I have started to lose usb sticks on a regular basis now!  So I don't want anything visible, documents etc.
Just a simple password would suffice.
