PROBLEM SOLVED! Sorry for having bothered you. vkmapset works, inspite the fact that it ends with an error message. The clue is, that I had to enter a digit '1' in the very first position of the keyboard test field. This really modifies the keyboard map.

Hello All,
Yesterday I installed VL 7.1 Light on an old, slow PC. I am surprised by its performance. But I use a French keyboard, and the two methods I found, do not work.

When installing i was not asked what keyboard I am using.
After installation I tried vkmapset which ended with the error message, showing line numbers 57,58 ?, saying that some functions are not present. I assume that it is a bad script, Python or what else.
After some more reading I found VasmCC, but which is not supplied in the Light version. So i tried Vasm. It shows some options to choose from, but the one I need is not present: Hardware Configuration.

What shall i do?

Open the startup file for icewm (~/.icewm/startup)
find the line that reads "sleep 5"
increase the number to something like "sleep 8"
un-comment the line for nm-applet so it will start
log out and back in.

If you still get the little black square, increase the number a little more.

If the networking works okay then, you may ignore the warnings.. actually, you won't even see them. ;)

I've recently installed VL-Light 7.2 rc2. I noticed a little black square in the left corner on my desktop. It seems to be connected to the nm-applet in icewm's systemtray. I commented the applet out in icewm's startupfile and now it doesn't come up anymore when I log in. I started the applet through the terminal and it started with a lot of errormessages, about things being deprecated. Maybe these messages caused this little black square?

I don;t know where this should go but this seemed the closest.
The gui installer still doesn't like my flat screen monitor so I can.t test that.  The text install went smoothly.
I spent a lot of time but still haven't been able to get my USB Wireless dongle to work.  (This is in another post.)
Then I went to work on WordPress.  Unlike previous VL versions, when using Super Thunar, I navigate to the wp-admin directory and click on any of the .php files, the browser started open new tabs - almost as fast as it can.  Even after closing the browser, it still keeps opening browser tabs untill I navigate out of the WordPress directory.
Then I started re-reading my older posts on the subject and it finally sunk into the block of concrete on my shoulders, started setting up httpd and will continue that as I get time.  At the time, someone mentioned that it worked right out of the box.  I finally realized that they got a prepackaged application.  I need to set it up on my system (with a local server) to see if it will do what I want.
So far, every thing else seems to be working.  This is much friendlier than the previous 7 series.  Thanks to all that had a hand with it.
