You're right. I must have changed it on my system [1] because I also
find it annoying. When it asks for the root password it provides the
option to remember it for either the whole time you're logged in or

I'd like to change it so that it by default asks for the user's
password instead root's, but from relevant bug reports ([2], [3], [4])
I gather that it could break some configurations if it's not done

If brscan2 is installed correctly then you should have a sane directory

I released 2 alpha versions [5][6] and 2 beta versions [7][8] before
the final release. I would have liked very much for more users to test
and compare them with the previous release.

As far as I know, GIMP in gNewSense 3 has no single window mode.

[1] Install gconf-editor, start it (Applications -> System Tools ->
