    I am back to my antix 17 final install. I did the MX-17 beta1 test, and now am back on antix testing for long term stability.

    One problem (minor) is when I reboot into antix 17, my wall paler is missing, “failed to open /path to /wallpaper image/spectrum.jpg”.
    This will be easy for the experts here !

    The image is on my data drive. I have set up the little files icon on the desktop to link to my data drive and a bunch of directories (music, pictures, documents etc). ANd these do not work after a reboot. The link to sda (the 1TB data drive), but not the directories short cuts I have created with links.

    So to fix, delete one of the shortcuts (say documents), and open another files icon from the desktop, open the data drive, and drag a documents folder onto the files window now open. It asks if I want relative or absolute links. I pick absolute, (relative gives the same behaviour). Then that shortcut link works opening up the documents directory on the data drive. And surprisingly, now all the other linked folders work now also ! Then I can use the control center to reselect my existing wall paler.

    I am good until I have a reboot.

    So, I think somehow the data drive or links are not being remounted correctly. How can I check this and make the data links permanent and the wall paper come up automatically?

    Having the linked subdirectories to all my data in that Files icon makes for a very clean and useful desktop.

    Fixed !

    I checked fstab. sda1, the data drive was set to noauto, so I edited as root, deleting the no leaving auto.

    A reboot, now all works correctly.
