Ok I got my Card Catalogs running on K12LTSP 6 and configured it with Kiosk 
Admin Tool (I use KDE for the desktop). I set up a simple text scroller but 
all I get are blank screens. It doesn't matter which screensaver I choose, 
all I get is the blank screen at the end of the timer. 

I read in a posting that in K12LTSP 6 a blank screen is set by default. How do 
I go about changing that? I also found 
in /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/xscreensaver.sh that disables all 
screensavers. Is that what I modify to fix my problem?
