Welcome.  Vector Linux 7.1 is cigar friendly.  Just blow out the fan every now and then.

This has been solved..the default at the top of the window was set to viewer by default and I did not realize it needed to be set to save or other option. after setting to save the default was saved as the save settings on exit was checked in preferences. so it now appears to work as previously experienced. it still segfaults when set on viewer, but I do not know what the option implies...likely no viewer to show the scan? any case my bad for not seeing the obvious..will try the wireless again..thanks

btw was amazed how easy it was to set up the mfc

perhaps it is just me..
the 1.3.6 version of fluxbox in the testing repository has an issue with the right click menu on the panel and slit..there is no menu for panel (tray.. the thing at the bottom..well by default) and the slit flashes on and off when auto hide is  unselected..(repository dockables in slit and auto hide via the slit right click menu..perhaps it is just me..version 1.3.3 from the standard source appears to work as does the desktop right click menu

I marked as solved as I have it working for myself but posted further to let anyone else with the issue know 1.3.3 was working, then no longer available and what I had working. if the issue can not be found then it was my issue and now solved and marked as such

The release statement mentioned fluxbox as an alternative so I thought it may be of interest, likely just on my old machine and I apologise

thanks so much for the response and sorry to waste your time

Those of you having this issue with thunar, Please enable the 'untested' repository.  Here is the slapt-get line

For 32-bit
Code: [Select]

For 64-bit
Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
slapt-get -u
slapt-get --upgrade

Please report if you get better results so the packages can be moved to the stable repositories.

I'm unable to reproduce the visual issues with the slit.  But maybe I'm not testing right.

Here is what i'm doing
Log into fluxbox from gdm
right click an empty area of the desktop and on the menu, select Fluxbox Menu ->Configure -> Slit -> Autohide

and then
Fluxbox Menu -> Configure -> Toolbar -> Autohide

Then I launch 'gkrellm -w &' and it goes into the slit, I can show it on the screen by moving the mouse pointer to the bottom right corner of the screen.  The panel can also be activated by moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen.

Is this not the behaviour you are getting?

Congratulations! I tried to copy several files, there's something wrong. VectorLinux do not recognize Bluetooth.

I would suggest running thunar from command line, and pasting the terminal output after the crash, if any. That may give us a clue about what is going on.
