I don't want this thread to just die. I need some
help.
I mentioned above a bug report with the solution to my
epiphany problem. Can someone translate it to the
uneducated? There is an attachment. Can I run it?
using sh?

Also, I still have the GDM problem. I'm happy to do
the work, but I don't know where to start. (GDM says
bad config settings even when selected the default
theme.) Where can I look for more information?

Thanks,
