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.

for micro
My top 3 in order of preference.


For micro, are your keybindings still close to its defaults, or have you customized them more to resemble another editor you've used?

Have not customized key bindings.  I use it from a c9 instance (ff window), so key bindings are a bit messy to begin with there, so I just use the default settings.

CTRL+s = save
CTRL+q or esc = quit

I have reinstalled VL-Light 7.2. rc2 on my old Dell SX optiplex 270 machine. I will wait with updating until the final version comes out. Thank you very much. It's running smoothly.  :)

Very good.  :)  Be advised that doing a full upgrade on the current version may affect your network connectivity. Hang on for a few days until we get that straightened out. At least don't upgrade the package "NetworkManager".

Ignoramus you're not. 7.1 is starting to show its age and struggles to keep up with the fast changing software world.

Although it is not labelled "done" yet, 7.2 is in much better shape. How about testing the latest version? Find it here:
