If you're a fairly regular 7.1 Light user, and have not installed a larger browser like firefox, chrome, etc., please say so in a reply.

He's probably not doing this as root.  The other logical explanation is that he's not doing this at a VL shell at all

What about issuing the command   env PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:$PATH slapt-get -u

Does that get you anything?

As you said 'a long shot'. Got that slept-get equals command-not-found.

Some good news is I may soon be able to burn a dvd [soho]. Will see.

I need some clarification on the workings of usb identification in kernel 3.18.

I use UDEV rules to identify usb hardware devices on physical ports based on the attribute "KERNELS".  The format is "BUS-DEVICE", which shows as "#-#", or "1-1", depending on the bus and device numbers.

In VL 7.0 / Kernel 3.2, the bus number would always stay the same.

In VL 7.1 / Kernel 3.18, the bus number seems to be a random number between 1-3 (at least on my hardware).  The device numbers are at least the same.

I was able to modify my rules to make my system work as intended, but would like to understand why the bus numbers are changing.  Can anyone provide insight on the changing bus numbers?

@roarde   Does not launch from panel correctly unless right click select properties.

The properties setting is determining the default behavior whenever you click the icon from the "panel". This is the default behavior if you add the "app" from the panel settings.

If you want the old behavior of being able to choose when clicking on the icon, go to your menu, find Screenshot, right mouse click on it and tell it to add to the panel. You'll then be able to select the behavior when clicking on the icon.
