    Smile Help configuring the startup desktop. (Has to do with the default GUI)

    When I log into BT4R2 and use startx it loads the desktop, however there is a problem. It only loads up two workspaces, even when I have previously set it to 4. Anytime I log out and boot back up it is always reset to the default 2 workspaces.

    The easiest way to fix this I guess would be to locate where the default values are saved.

    Now I have noticed there is a default button in the manager that allows you to change the number of workspaces, which means if my logic proves right there must be some sort of configuration file that holds these default values within them so they may be recalled at a later time.

    My question is, where is this configuration file located? And if there is one how would I edit it to change the default from 2 to 4? Just by changing a value or would there be more involved?

    Thank you.
