    If you click on the link below you can directly download Palemoon then simply click on the downloaded .pet to install it - no need to use ppm or terminal just click below and install. To wget simply type wget and the link lettter for letter below example wget https://sourceforge.net............................................

    Once you install browser you will be able to browse the the other catergories on the AnitaOS site.

    PPM has older software if you want an older browser not sure how old your machine is.

    In my Icewm configuration default there is no volume control in the tray as I wanted a simple unculttered setup and usually adjust volume from the mutimedia section from the menu.

    If you wish you can use JWM instead which has the volume control in the tray, simply logout then type xwin jwm.

    You need to make Palemoon your default Browser for HTML viewing. To achieve this do the following, Using Rox-filer go to the following folder /usr/local/bin. Right click on defaulthtmlviewer and left click on open as text option

    You will see this as below
    #!/bin/sh
    exec gtkmoz "[email protected]"

    Change the gtkmoz to palemoon. or whatever browser you wish to be default to browse the help file and open HTML pages. and left click save from the file menu as by now a text editor should have opened up like geany or leafpad.

    As for your shutdown issue - I'm guessing you have a desktop and when I had desktops only one my machine I can recall had this issue and it required me to press the power button again to shutoff the machine.

    You'll find a file called menu.lst so add to the kernel line - something like eg. kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro
    At the end of that line add acpi=off then save to find this file go into roxfiler and you will need to get out of the default root directory by pressing the up arrow on the left at the top and rightclick on menu.lst file and left click open as text. Make change and save. The above post if applicable as 4.31 is the base of AnitaOS.
