A directory is specified by its full path.
I needed to search to find: /tmp/tce/optional;
which could well have been NOT the one.
Does it move around: that the path is not specified?

 It could also be that pan requires some functionality provided by Xorg, but not by Xfbdev.

Thanks,    have you used it ?
I can't remember the details of the needed setup procedure, but I'm
guessing it needs the SeverURL, UserID, Pswrd, and then each group
that you subscribe to, plus the previous lists of headers...etc....
  So how would I retain all this info between power-down.
Aren't all the files holding this info just kept in RAM and thus lost
at power down?

Read the documentation of the software you want to use!
Find out where its config files are located.
Add them to your backup (by creating an entry in  /opt/.filetool.lst ).
Perform a backup (run  filetool.sh -b  or simply the  backup  command).

Yes.

No. Only if you don't pay attention to what has been told you several times already.

Or in other words, RTFM and stop asking the same question over and over again.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

Yes, but only with Xorg as Xfbdev will not work properly on my hardware.

pan asks these questions when you first start it.

Yes, but the majority of applications save data under the /home/$USER folder and thus are automatically backed-up with the default backup settings if you are using a backup.
