Personally I still like this panel as it works vertically

horizontally

without application launchers

or with a second panel or dock

I agree a single row with a few less items looks better, the xfce limitations start to show with the vertical panels, text and digital clock are lost unless you go with the wider panel

Did you compare the md5sum to make sure the download was
not a problem?

Hello,
I am new in this community so I am not sure where to address my question.

Well I downloaded VectorLunix 7.0 , burned it on a CD (with verify option set).
However booting failed: the error message was: /mnt/sr0/X.trz Package is corrupted.
I burned a new CD (with verify option set and also no complaints) but still
again the same error-message appeared.

Has anyone a explanation or suggestion to solve this problem.
I don't think that the distribution (VL7.0-STD-GOLD.iso) is corrupted.

 Angry

I like the single row panel. Thank you for the insight!

A new custom panel for Vector 7.1
This right side panel includes all you need to get started with Vector linux.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/y7nnd5z4xfjvjbm/panel.png

You can right click any application on the wisker menu at the top and add it to the panel. You can add a dozen of your favorite apps and still have room to open them all and minimize them. minimized apps are slightly grayed to avoid confusion with launchers.You can also right click and move the apps if you like.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6n38w48aho74h0g/panela.png

Or you can organize your apps into sub menus of existing app launchers or create new ones.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/b5sjqn2f0z2jo9i/panelb.png

you can right click the panel for panel preferances and make the panel a single row or muliple rows to add more stuff.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/scxxnogprjr9r29/panelc.png

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cf84zawm6xnu2uj/panelcb.png

Or add a new panel and include a standard menu and clock then right click your favorite applications on the menu and add them to the desktop for a classic look. items on the panel can be right clicked and moved even between panels, volume and notifications for example could be moved to your new panel.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cxthpufczgf9t5/panele.png

This panel as a default stays out of the way of your customizing your desktop while provideing access to new packages, settings, files and frequently used apps with a single click, reducing wear on your mouse buttons.

It also includes a button at the top to change the date and time, an optional timer plugin to wake you after a heavy night of customization and log out or shut down buttons, along with standard features like volume, notification and windows switchers. You can even auto hide the panel providing a blank slate for what ever you would like to do.

It appears there was a security advisory on the dhcpcd package which triggered a rebuild of our package.  The resulting package is being fixed now...  The Next ISO will have a fixed package.  In the mean time, you can revert to this p ackage

http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.1/packages/Sbin/dhcpcd-5.6.7-x86_64-2vl71.txz

or wait for the new package on untested and install it on your 2.2.5 installations.

Remember to removepkg dhcpcd first or run upgradepkg /path/to/your/downloaded/dhcpcd-5.6.7-x86_64-2vl71.txz to replace the existing package

If you have an ip address that is in the proper subnet.

Then there are only two areas to check.

Make sure using iwconfig that the connection is associated with the AP,

next make sure the routing is correct. As root route -n will show the
routing table.

Depends on the printer. I've had great luck setting up Epson, HP and Samsung. Canon? Not so much. Drivers are an absolute pain to come by.
