Thanks anti. A fresh look this morning helped. My aumix install was buggy for some reason, but I stumbled across the Commandlinefu
website. Specifically this command:
amixer -c 0 set Master 1+ unmute
So now I have keyboard shortcuts set, like you suggested, I went with the original Ctrl+Alt+m for mute, Ctrl+Alt+j for volume down (amixer -c 0 set Master 5-) and Ctrl+Alt+k for volume up (amixer -c 0 set Master 5+) - thanks for the suggestion though, it set me on the right track - keyboard shortcuts.
Same goes for your directions for the exitantix.sh. I did a locate for it (damn I love that command) and now have the button run the following: /usr/share/antiX/localisation/en/local-bin/exitantix.sh.
I also discovered that Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right Arrow key switches between desktops, so I have all I need to do away with the taskbar, and for the rest there's always the Windows Key (Super Key?) and menu. Thanks for your help
. I'm really loving this distro.
