Correct. Launchers/shortcuts/icons... you just copy the desired ".desktop" files from "/usr/share/applications" to "/home/username/Desktop" and you should see them there.

VL 7.2 Light is coming along nicely, RC2 is available for download from here:

Hopefully it will work with your hardware. What kind of computer do you have?

I'm Back after a few years. Looking forward to trying 7.2. Glad to see you guys are still here, glad to see I remembered my login and password. Ha!

Thanks for the clarification.  I'm looking forward to VL 7.2, and I hope there will still be a "Light" version that works on my 12-year old Toshiba laptop.  I tried another "lightweight" distro, and found that their latest release doesn't support my hardware.  Their previous release did, but the installer froze up.  So, I'm sticking with Vector as long as it works on my "obsolete" computer.

Judging by the build scripts, those packages are duplicates.

You should remove openldap-client-2.4.31, then reinstall openldap-2.4.38.

In the case of javascript, js-1.8.0_rc1 is the newest one.

That said, both of those are getting too old. I would recommend you look at switching to VL 7.2, which now is *almost" final.

A low level approach would be to use command:
Code: [Select]
tar xvf filename.tar.bz2

Another command line utility available on VL is "mc". Use the keyboard arrows to move the highlight to the file and press Enter. From there you can see and copy the contents of the archive.

Above that, it would depend on your file manager. Try right-clicking the file and see what options are available.
