New kernel packages are available in the untested repository for 7.2 which aim to fix the issue documented here.

Please enable the untested repository and install this kernel.

Follow the kernel upgrade documentation here to get it installed.

Testing is necessary before these packages can be moved to the patches area.

Thanks for testing and reporting.

I don't know if it helps, but I got this response from th xfce forum administrator:

Installed VL 7.2 into a vm and ran into the same problem:

The configurations in the xfce4-meta package are plain vanilla, by intent -- for users that want to set up Xfce their own way. The VL-specific customizations come from the VL_Theme package. I wouldn't install that on Light, but you can download it with wget or so and extract it to any empty directory with tar or Xarchiver, to take a look at what some of the differences are. Don't forget about /etc/skel.

I have installed xfce4 on VL-Light-final.
I just installed xfce4-meta and got a couple of issues.

First, the keyboard was totally crazy, won't get the right layout neither with xfce own keyboard setup nor with vasm.
That I fixed editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf.

The second problem is that the applications button in the panel won't work.
I can access the menu clicking on the desktop and it works fine, and all the other buttons in the panel work, but the applications menu just doesn't.
Any clue?

PS I'm launching xfce with gdm by the way.

You need to use the one for your installed kernel. If you're using the final VL 7.2 version, it will be version 4.4. Check by using command "uname -a" in a terminal.

Staying in the terminal, become root by command "su" and enter your root password. Next, "slapt-get -u" and then "slapt-get -i kernel4.4-stripped-src". That will do the job faster and easier.  ;D

You need to install some of the kernel sources first. Search gslapt for "stripped-src".

Thank you. There are three ones in Gslapt as pictured. What's to do next? Shall I try --ignore-excludes?

We talked about this in IRC last night (read "this morning"), and we hacked it into a working condition. Today, nightflier dropped into the channel and straightened me out on the xinitrc difference between STD and Light:

There are several ways to get from a terminal session to an X session. Two of those ways are fairly standard:
  • Edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, or link it to an existing xinitrc.<DE> to select the system-default X session. Users wanting something else then write their own ~/.xinitrc. 7.2 Light does this.
  • Place a .xinitrc in /etc/skel/, so newly created users have one. The version in skel starts the usual DE, of course. Users change that by editing. 7.2 Standard does this.

Slim's notes suggest providing a ~/.xinitrc somewhat like its own template. You did that, which overwrote the existing, working ~/.xinitrc. And now you know a lot more and had more fun than if everything had gone smoothly first time.

For someone looking in on this, what finally got the session to start with needed auths was to replace the end of Slim's "login_cmd" line with . /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.xfce. But that left no choice of session either at login time, or by a regular user's edit of ~/.xinitrc.

How 'bout this?:  Think of Slim as a startx substitute. Read startx(1) and write an /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.slim that works as that manpage describes, Allow for a "system-default" session to be started if no parameters are given, and for startup of the indicated session when one is. Hint: xinitrc.* are in the same directory. Don't get in startx's way, nor in gdm's.

I have just installed Vectorlinux in Virtualbox. There is no full size screen available - maximal size of the display is 1024x768. Not 1280x1024.
I have tried to install Virtualbox Additians, but there was a failure - "The headers for the current running kernel were not found".
The question - how can I install the missing headers. The system is VL-7.2-STD-FINAL (32 bit)?
