Fresh install from VL-7.2-STD-B1.iso.  So I don't like the Whisker menu.  No problem, remove it and replace it with the old Application Menu.  Now a problem, after rebooting the Application menu does not work.  Clicking on it results in a flashing, no menu pops up sometimes the whole panel disappears.  Put Whisker back, everything works fine.  Need a quick fix.  Thanks

Vectorlinux is proud to announce the first beta release of the 7.2 version of its standard and light versions. The release features light a minimal desktop version using icewm and seamonkey as its base of operation. The standard version is xfce based with the lastest firefox version as the browser. Both versions can be installed with our semi automatic gui installer or thru a text based installer depending on your needs. We feature all the latest linux based software from kodi to libreoffice all easily installed with our gui or text based package manager. We are using the latest 4.4.14 lts kernel for the best hardware support and system speed. Please give this a try and submit any bugs you might find so that we can make our final releases as perfect as possible. Last note for the diehards we are systemd free. Many thanks to all the developers that made this possible you know who are and long live Vectorlinux!

Yes.  I can reproduce it.

Try adding this line to your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc

Code: [Select]
then run "slapt-get -u; slapt-get -i lxde-meta" atain
let us know if that fixes it.

I tried to install the complete LXDE package (not LXQT) on VL "Light" 7.1, but gslapt responds with this pop-up error message:

  Excluding lxde-meta due to dependency failure (lxde-meta: Depends: lxsession).
I can't find a package called "lxsession" among those listed as available. 
The lxde-meta package version is:  1.0.2-i586-1vl71
The source is:

Can anyone else reproduce this error, or is there another "main" package I need to install first in order to get the "mature" version of LXDE?

what version of vector linux are you running?
we do not have dvdrip in 7.1 or 7.2 and it hasnt been
developed since 2002 it seems. that doesnt mean it wont
work but being so old we may not be able to package it.
ill try.... see what happens

would it even work on todays DRM?

The kernel is not standing still, now up to 4.4.13

Rather than posting direct links to moving targets, this is where the packages will be found:
