QuickSetup improved

April 20, 2016 — BarryK
QuickSetup is a window that pops up on first bootup, with lots of things that you might want to configure immediately.

I have added a button labeled "Manage daemons".

This is because Quirky Xerus has rather a lot of daemons that run automatically in the background, such as Samba and Rsync servers, that are potential security risks.

QuickSetup is now an up-front and convenient way of disabling daemons that are not going to be used.

It can also be done from the BootManager in the System menu.

Countdown to Quirky 8.0, just tidying up a few final things.
