Hi Veki, I think we spoke over IRC, but for the record:

* The MacBook iSight camera requires a firmware
* You need to get it from Apple and extract it using the isight tools from the repository

These detailed instructions in the Ubuntu wiki look useful:

Please post back if you find issues, the isight firmware tools are in the untested repos, thanks to Wigums

This should be a driver issue. Whats the model of the webcam? Most of them use one of two drivers: uvcvideo and gspca.
Actually, usbvideo is pretty popular as well.

Is there any detection utility which can help in that?
It's probably (internally) connected by USB. If you open a terminal and run the command 'lsusb' you will get a list of USB-devices connected to your computer.

Last week I installed RC2.3, and while it looked a lot better than RC2 I still have some issues with it.

This is the second installation where I just 'lost' the Xfce Desktop after a while (same thing happened on RC2); I boot the computer and login as my everyday user, only to be greeted by a panel without a 'running'  desktop. I can still open programs from the menu, but they don't show up on the panel and apparently they can't be moved either. I haven't yet located the correct command to start the desktop myself.

While the 'Session' menu lists both Awesome and Fluxbox neither wants to be booted; Fluxbox doesn't seem to be installed, awesome is though. With a new user, XFCE looks alright, though I guess it's just a matter of time before XFCE is b0rken there too.

I'm an italian user and I have many doubts.
First of all, sorry for my english : I used Google translator.

I installed Vector Linux 7 Gold and I like it but I do not know the slackware language.

So, after the installation, I would like to install the prg with which they are most accustomed to.  I found some of them, like  Avidemux and K3b, in the package manager and then I installed them normally, but (first issue) K3b find it in the Media section but will not start. How do I fix it?

Other else, like qBittorrent and WinFF, there aren't in Gslapt and then I want to know if it is possible, (second problem), how I install them by the terminal with all the repository.

The trash application does not work (third problem). When I delete a file there is a window that says : "Can not find or create trash directory". How do I fix it?

Finally, I found Firefox installed and I installed from Gslapt Thundrbird but they are both in English (fourth problem). Is there a way to make it in Italian?

Thank you for your disponibilty

Device drivers are added to the kernel. Device drivers are called modules since they are modules of the kernel.

That Trust Cam should already be installed and recognized by the kernel.

You will need software (a program) to use the camera. One of the programs to use the webcam would be Cheese.

As for the modem you have not supplied enough information.  You claim it to be a Ralink wireless modem. Without
exact information (Name, Make, model and version number) it is impossible to give anything further that would be

problem risolved, now boots from hard drive, please, administration, add such a thing to the page where you suggest to add to the bootable usb drive a folder from image of live cd called VL......  So, also add: boot folder must be added too, then lilo and everything else installs perfectly well.  Wink If it ask for the file to replace like syslinux.cfg, don`t need that file. that is all.
