Re: Which softwares to install ?

Ok, so I installed a few laptops.

But I notice that neither Grub not the login page seem to be accessible, that may be a problem if the kids are to use the computers alone.

Is there a solution to that problem ?

Also, there are two installations problem that I encountered.
They're not directly accessibility problems, but maybe someone here still has a solution ?

First one is about a Macbook pro that installed wrongly and that I can't find a way to reinstall :


Second is about the second Macbook whose screen is broken; imho it's not that much a problem for blind kids but it still needs to be somehow usable if someone is to either work with the kid or help him or her with the computer :

xrandr is supposed to fix that but I can't find the right options (--pos does nothing, and --transform uses parameters from a matrix that I don't really understand).
