It's no trick. Most of Linux configuration lives in plain text files,
making them accessible to anyone and everyone who understands text editing
and the docs describing the supported content of those files. OTOH, to
claim a need to install some app and 10 or more deps just to change one
line in a text file is little short of ludicrous.

Agreed. I should have read this thread sooner.

You mean replied sooner? Sooner than what? Roughly 9 hours after the
2009/01/24 07:25 (GMT-0800) thread starter, on 2009/01/24 19:10:42
(GMT-0500), I submitted essentially the same net response as your 2009/01/25
04:03:37 (GMT-0600) response. Mine received no response at all until 13
minutes before you posted yours, nearly 10 hours after I sent it. All the
meanwhile, there was little more than did so/did not blaming babble from most
of the many thread respondents' many replies.

But why didn't someone who
pays more attention than I do suggest the config file?

Too much blather to wade through to get there? I suspect more trouble to find
out which entry in which config file than to install and run systemsettings. :-(
