    Default Lost my mouse settings, dragon font sizes and nuvox theme again

    Now mouse settings (double-click) and fonts sizes revert back to their annoying KDE defaults. Oh well, another fun day in Backtrackville. This time I will not reinstall (3rd time in three days). Seems like the most minor adjustments causes this thing to break.

    I'm going to punish myself now by writing 1000 times "I will not even THINK about adjusting font sizes in Backtrack ever again"

    I'm no expert, but it sounds like you didn't actually install backtrack on to your computer/USB/external HDD. Do any settings save? If not, then yeah, you did it wrong. Search the forums, there are over 9000 different guides and posts about it. Either that or you are just running the CD and expecting things to save?

    Trust me, I AM an expert at installing Backtrack onto a pen-drive. Here's a tutorial just for you:

    1) Install BT onto a 8 gig pendrive using unetbootin.
    2) Repartition the pendrive with gparted. Shrink the fat32 partition down to 2 gigs. Make the remaining space, the 2nd partition. Format it to ext2 and label it "casper-rw."
    3) Finished -- WOW, a real toughy isn't it?
    4) On reboot, always log into persistent changes option on unetbootin grub screen (changes will then be saved), no need to change or fix grub menu. Leave it alone.

    DONE

    Now you can make this the 9000 +1 guide to installing BT4 to a USB, chief.

    You never answered my question, does any custom work you've done on the OS carry over? Simple test: put a .txt file on the desktop, reboot, is it still there?
