Modifying Other Desktop Items

I could write an entire book about configuring the desktop, but that's not what I want to do here. To finish this short introduction to the GNOME desktop, let's look at the GNOME Control Center utility (see Figure 2-14). With it, you can change all aspects of the GNOME desktop. For example, from the Hardware section, it is easy to change the keyboard settings or screen resolution, and the Look and Feel options allow you to change the look of the desktop quickly. Some personalization options are available from the Personal section. For example, you can change your default language or password here or create shortcuts to start programs you need often. Last, the System section helps you set generic system settings, such as setting the date and time you want to use, setting the Power Management options, or setting up access to the desktop of your server by means of a Remote Desktop Protocol.
