Cannot say it often enough about how impressed I am with Lucid. Lovely 

But I do have a couple of questions to do with midnight commander, and 
hope that someone has the answer.

I use mc (midnight commander) as my preferred file manager. - been using 
it for years. Under Ubuntu it has me stumped about how to keep the darn 
thing open in full screen and not open in that small window (which you 
then have to double click on or press F10 to make it go full screen)?

And the second question is: in mc F10 is (one way) how one QUITS 
midnight commander. But pressing the F10 key only brings up a drop-down 
menu in the top-left corner. The only way that "F10" works is if one 
uses the mouse to click on the F10 "button" at the bottom-right of mc. 
How can one reconfigure mc or whatever (and it is NOT the keyboard 
shortcuts) so that F10 key on the keyboard works as it is designed to work?


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
