Debian Stable beginner's questions
It's been two or three years since I used Debian, and now I'm back for the peerless stability (lesson learned). Some simple stuff has me stalled:
1. I thought I was getting Xfce as default DE, but I have Gnome instead. I downloaded Xfce4 (from DVD). Gnome is still stubbornly in place; how do I dump it and get Xfce up and running? SOLVED, but it took some doing. . -- Still need Numbers 2, 3, 4 answered, please!
2. What's the easy way to change the fonts in the virtual terminals? (I don't see any way to put that info into the GRUB menu list these days.)
3. Iceweasel does not perform on a par with my previous browser; what's the best overall browser for the GUI, in your opinion?
4. I have six partitions, but I cannot read the mount points for partitions 3 and 4. (1 is /, 2 is Extended, 5 is swap, 6 is /home. In the install, I specified only / and swap and /home.) No big deal, but this seems odd.
