The post-install script puts an entry in /root/.config/openbox/autostart. It's not smart enough to deal with non-root users.

If this isn't working, use:
Code:
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/vnstat-tray $HOME/Startup

Restart X. Or reboot.

It did add vnstate-tray to /root/.config/openbox/autostart and it didn't work. No idea why, maybe a systemd thing.

I made a link to /usr/local/bin/vnstat-tray in /root/Startup and that fix it. It works now.

Thanks,

Thanks. Getting this to work with my bluetooth headset is still on my list of things to do.

This is a Lenovo N22 "cloudbook". It has a Celeron N3050 chipset, 4GB RAM, a 32GB emmc drive and UEFI firmware. The Lenovo UEFI config is easy - disable Secure Boot and set the boot order (USB, emmc, Windows).

The refurbished N22 came with a clean Win10 setup that I wanted to keep for a while. So I shrank the NTFS partition and made an ext4 Linux partition. I booted off a UEFI flash drive, ran the stretch-live-frugal-installer and put the Buster Starter Kit on the emmc drive (Buster needs the alternate initrd1.xz for this). Unlike some Puppies, installing onto emmc is routine. Windows multi-boots from the Linux UEFI GRUB2 menu.

Everything works (audio, battery, WiFi, HDMI) except for the micro-SD slot. This is a known problem in Linux.

Edit: I decided to scrap Windows. I ran Gparted, deleted the Windows partitions and expanded the Linux partition to fill the drive. On the emmc, this was done in seconds. I expected that the Linux partition's UUID would change and I would need to update GRUB, but it didn't! So the machine booted up in Buster as before.
