You didn't look the right way I think. I didn't all of the doc although=20
it would have been better. I installed it on my laptop. I did some=20
stupid changes in the xserver-xorg conf file a pair of weeks later, and=20
didn't know how to get it back in the original shape. I got it back with =

backuppc : the /etc/files are configured natively by default  :)

The menu for access is a little bit hidden, in one of the lines in the=20
left column, on the admin web page. Just browse.

The configuration to add certain folders of the system is also reachable =

from this web admin page, even one has to get familiar with it.

Am I out of topic ? is that what you were talking about or some other
types of configurations ?
