:-)  It is the only software he actually asked for - and he did offer to do 
without if it would solve this problem.  There was something or other that 
Chromium wouldn't do on my system (something to do with Flash) and he didn't 
like Iceweasel, so I didn't argue too hard.

Doh!  Thank you, Dan.  It didn't occur to me that the logo was a menu. :-(  I 
tried everything on the right.  (Yes, I know that the TDE menu is a TDE logo, 
but I don't use icons so it isn't at the forefront of my mind.)

All is now well.  Well almost, but that is another thread.

Thank you, Dan.
