PCLinuxOS Day 8 - Between a Desktop and Server

Filed under
PCLOS

Another day at the control center. I am impressed with the scope of tasks that can be executed via one tool. Earlier I mentioned Webmin and the control center shares quite a few characteristics with that tool (though the functions are different, of course). Let’s continue digging deeper.

Hardware
The page Hardware has five tasks that deal with setting you graphical environment: Configure your monitor, Change the screen resolution, Configure 3D Desktop effects, Set up the graphical server and Set up TV card. Five others deal with your peripherals (keyboard, mouse/pointer device, printer, scanner and UPS).

First, I took a closer look at “Look at configure the hardware”. At first it gave a list of the hardware components of the computer. Under options you can extend the autosearch to printers, modems, jaz drives and parallel zipdrives.
