I decided to get brutal and edit the "XF86Config" file myself.
I found various things to tweak.

All is well now. Everything works just fine.

Thank you for your help and hope I can
come to you for assistance again!

"Life is"....... (a tribute).
Life didn't play fair for my Parents (Morris & Bella).
Yet, my Parents had so much that is good about "Life" in them.
They were Real people, living "Life" in a real world.
They will forever be on my mind. I miss them so!
