No. I've got the auto connection thing happpening thanks to Gavin's how-to. I think I just need to research tuxtype's settings.txt file and find out if there are any prefs I can set there that deal with it running in a window instead of full screen.

If I get TuxTyping2 working I'll try to post a set of things I had to do.
