Thank you for the reply. I think my main issue here is that this build
system is running a really old flavour of Debian and so I decided to
build a new server and then start fresh with Debian 8.  Certainly I will
hit a snag or two and I will just keep asking here until I get a full
build :-) 

The real trick will be to hook up my HP LD4220tm touchscreen digital
signage display and see if there is any way to support touchscreen
devices. That should be interesting but step one is just to get a
complete build.

Thank again.
