OK John, lets work on a few things here.

1. Have you sent a bug report to the maintainers as to why the daemon is not started at boot ?

2. Have you spent any time on Google for any guidance ? From a Google search::

Install the netcat package and type: 'nc -u localhost 6789'.
Any character typed on the command line will be sent to cwdaemon after you hit enter. You could also use the following shell script which is character based:

old_tty_settings=$(stty -g)
stty -icanon
trap 'stty "$old_tty_settings"; exit 0' INT

echo "Press (CTRL-C) to interrupt..."

while true; do
  Keypress=$(head -c1)
  echo $Keypress | nc -q0 -u localhost 6789
This only works if your version of netcat supports the -q switch. If you don't have it, you also could try: echo $Keypress > /dev/udp/localhost/6789

3. Have you looked here ? ::


4. Have you used Google to search on cwdaemon ? (15,500 hits).

5. Xlog does not and never will start the daemon, unless Andy decides to open the source code and add a 100 or so lines of code.

6. Have you looked here ? ::


7. I see that you set the sound device to "b" and it did not work when you dropped out to console ?

Please understand that everyone on this list is willing to help, but you must do your homework first.
