I have kmap=gb in porteus.cfg, but this is not setting the keymap. Setting the keymap via porteus settings does not save between boots.

In porteus.cfg I have volume=0%, but this does not change the volume icon. Manually changing the volume icon does not save between boots.

hi Philip, thanks for testing.
i'm guessing these problems are caused by loading from /optional(as per instructions)
the reason being, anything in optional is loaded last, overwritng everthing,incluing changes, i think?
Try putting 003-openbox.xzm in /modules instead, and see if that fixes anything.

I have 003-openbox.xzm in /porteus/base

The fix posted by tome does work.
