    Default Modify: Startx automatically, add apt, etc

    Hey folks,

    I'm using the 32bit Gnome version of BT5. I'm wondering if I can achieve these things (as this distro is based on Ubuntu)

    1. Install Ubuntu 11.04 and install BT5 tools and settings afterwards (via a simple command or script). Yes, I expect there are some unpleasant limitations to this so I don't expect an answer

    OR modify the default BT5 install thusly:

    1. Load GUI by default and login that way and/or auto login.
    2. Install Ubuntu's software center and/or APT and/or synaptic.


    Basically I'm loving BT5 A LOT but I want it to be just a tad more user-friendly. I also want to add more software to the install the way I'm accustomed to.

    Unless a decent package manager already exists within BT5; but I can't find one.

    To have a graphical login, just install gdm and run it in startup:

    Code:
    aptitude update
    aptitude install gdm
    Then, edit /etc/rc.local, and add a line BEFORE "exit 0" like this:

    Code:
    service gdm start
    This is not the best way, but run! . This must work running "update-rc.d gdm defaults", but this way fail.

    Probably your card is not supported!

    type the following in the bash_profile: startx
    press ctrl+x and y to save

    reboot

    it will ask you for your login and pass and autologin

    Oh neat, I've been trying apt-get commands but no luck. I'll try the suggestions above when I get home from work.

    Thanks for the help folks.
