I apologize or I am sorry, but I have mentioned that it does not work.
I have tried that it does not work. I have uncommented the section
where it says moused_port="/dev/ums1" and it does not work. I don't
have mouse functionality. What good is a gui without a mouse? and I
don't know any shortcuts to set menu entries in xfce :(
I remember that there was an option for xorg.conf that had an option
like Hidden="False" and that may do it?
