Edit MATE menu?

I must apologize for another question; I'm still working my way through my new install. I want to rearrange the entries in the MATE menu. If I click on System/Control Center/Main Menu, I get the right window, but no changes that I make stick. So as root I type "mozo", and get the same menu, as root....

Sysinfo? [SOLVED]

I'm running Ghost BSD on an home built machine with an older Asus M2N-MX motherboard, Athlon 64 dual core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a GeForce 210 video card.

Re: Root and User Passwords Both Bolixed [SOLVED]

ASX: thank you, that worked; I'm now responding from my Ghost BSD system. For the record, (and my motive here is to learn the correct way, not to defend my ego..~(;^})=..)

Root and User Passwords Both Bolixed [SOLVED]

Suddenly, neither my root nor standard user passwords will log me into Ghost BSD. I pulled out my copy of "The Complete FreeBSD" by Lehey, and based on what was suggested, booted into support mode and selected the bash shell. I then typed: mount -u mount -usr but got an error message about no such d...

Re: CUPS Bunged Up on New Install

Thanks, finally got back in town after spending a week looking after grandkids. There is no PCL driver available in the Ghost BSD version of CUPS on my machine.

Hi, I just installed GhostBSD 10.3/MATE after a long absence, and find that CUPS is not right. I have an HP Laserjet 2420DN installed on my network; the driver that the installer chose is the HP LaserJet 2420 Foomatic/Postscript. When i try to print either a test page or the one text line "The quick...
