Public bug reported:

Affects: casper (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When you boot the live CD with F5+choice3 it should start with the
magnifier running, but doesn't.

Everything is installed and working though, so when you activate
Assistive Technologies and the magnifier, log out+in then it works.

The settings should also be tweaked a bit. It now uses 8x zoom by
default, but I think we agreed to go with 4x. It also uses the poor
standard magnifier placement of 320, 0, 639, 479, while we had agreed to
place it at the bottom of the screen. 0, 512, 1023, 750 seems like a
good standard setting. Ideally we would read the screen size used by
xorg and calculate the best position from that, but that will likely
require some development.
