Happy new year to all those peaceful citizens of the world.  To those others, especially to those religious cowards who would do innocent children harm, may you have a miserable new year and die in your own vomit.

How do I go about creating a desktop launcher for Firefox 34.0.5? Or better yet - How do I go about installing in in Vector Linux 7.0?

No, because what would happen (or more accurately WOULDN'T happen) was that I would go to print something, and nothing would happen, or I would get an error message something to the effect that the printer wasn't responding Sad.

I've got VL 7.0 Gold dual-booting on a Compaq CQ56 laptop with Windows 7.  The laptop has a 2.3GHz V140 AMD processor, 2Gb of RAM, and ATI Radeon HD 4250 Graphics. 

I've noticed that holding down the backspace key only backs up one character at a time and sometimes doesn't work at all.  The delete key frequently does the same.  In addition, I'm finding I can't copy & paste into some applications - like Facebook on Firefox.

Everything works perfectly in Windows 7, and in Linux Mint (using a live DVD), so I know it's not a hardware issue.  I've been dabbling in Linux for a while, but am still very much a noob.

I've been doing some searching, both here and on the Web, but while I've found several possible explanations, the steps given to resolve them don't ever seem to apply to the version of VL I'm using.

Any thoughts or tips will be gratefully accepted.  Thanks.

I check the Vector store monthly for the version 7 release and always walk away sad. I wish I had time to help.  So for now I'm still Slackin!

Understand. Try using "xev" and see what happens when you press the keys.

Not sure about 32 bit but on latest 64 bit GUI installer asks for administrative password on same page as user password, one line down or above.  If you put in administrative password at that point, use it as your root password.


I must have missed that. Will check again.
Solved by making me sudo then make root PW.

Healthy & Happy New Year

Well I gave the description of the keys on the left to describe that the keyboard has extra keys, but it's the actual function keys, (F1-F12), that aren't working.  Sorry should have been clearer.
