grml-x, xorg ...

Hello,
i have installed grml squeeze on a asus eeepc 1005ha-m.
I sue speakup and brltty, because i am blind.

Now i want to use gnomes-orca with firefox and openoffice with gnome.

At the moment i do not have installed gnome.
If i do:

grml-x

the xserver starts, but i can not come back to the textconsole. ctrl-alt- 
f(x) will not work, also not the ctrl-alt-bacspace to shutdown the  
xserver.

How can i set the xorg correct for the asus 1005ha-m?

How can i start the xserver to console tty7?
On my system are only the consoles tty1 to tty6for switching between  
themself configurede, ist that correct?

Can i use orca with fluxbox?

Thanks for your help and regards.

Dietmar

... why not try ADRIANE-KNOPPIX 6.4.4. CD?
ftp://mirror.informatik.uni-mannheim.de/pub/linux/distributions/knoppix/

It is a special version for blind peoples Klaus Knopper has developed
because his wife is also blind.

This sounds strange. Are you speaking about Grml 2010.12?

It's supposed to work out of the box, if not it's either a bug in
X.org or in your hardware. :)

Should be the default, but you can force it running
'grml-x --force --display 7 ...'

Re: grml-x, xorg ...

This helps a lot.  I've also been having trouble using grml-x from a
grml-small iso.  I haven't complained since it's a grml-small squeeze
iso I made with grml-live.

Yeah, the official grml-small doesn't ship X.org. :)

BTW: I strongly recommend using grml-medium as a base for
remastering (in general, unless you have a really good reason to do
otherwise :)), especially if you want to use X.org.

There is also vinux, a ubuntu fork for blind users:

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Adaptive-Technologies/Vinux-43337.shtml

I am also blind but I usually use grml in character mode.

Creating Live USB with grml2usb

I would like to put grml live cd on usb drive.  I created bootable w96
fat32 partition and formatted it using mkfs.vfat.   I ran "grml2sub
grml.iso /dev/sdb1".

I am getting boot error.

I tried to create live usb with unetbootin.  This worked.   Would
anyone have an idea what is going wrong?

Thanks in advance

I am sorry to hear that. What was exactly the problem? Can you write the
message down or make a screenshot with a camera? Without any further
information we can't help you.
