i was wondering if it is possible to add custom applications to the media centers menu. I am intersted in building the ultimate no fuss pc for my gran and i am looking for an operating system that has nothing but the applications on start up ie no taskbar or other stuff. ideally i would like her to be able to turn the pc on a and see several options similar to a media centers mai9n menu. however instead of tv, radio etc it would be
That then would provide the most simplified desktop/base to run everything she needs off of.
I have been looking around and most of the set ups people have generated for people with similar needs have used customised standard distro with desktop/taskbar enviroments. i really dont want any of that and it is why i ask if it is possible to use lmce as a base for this.
i am not brilliant with linux otherwise i am sure i could write it myself (dam have to learn more)
Yep i agree with Posde... look at the the ASUS Eee PC line as they come with ExpressGate Linux build in... see here for more info;http://www.splashtop.com/
This has very limited UI and set of apps but is dead simple to use and is almost instantly available on power-up.
All the best
