Sorry that I do not have similar hardware for testing. Do you found any error messages in the log files?

Running on RC1 32 & 64bit in vbox...both can detect my HP P2055dn network printer automatically...test print work fine...

Pita, pls provide printer model.

Epson LQ-300 and Brother DCP-385C both connected to USB port.

Both print in Slackware, Slackel, Salix, Tails, TCl, Mint.......latest versions.

In my last post I mentioned that I never got a response on my various printer problem
reporting during Beta testing. That is not correct, there was one response .

Hope my word did not confuse you about updates/upgrades. It is my personal practice of not running system wide update/upgrade and update/upgrade packages for what I want.

Since you are running VL in vbox, you can play with it to get more familiar. But running a system wide update/upgrade with testing repo enable is highly not recommended. Only install/upgrade packages that you want from the testing repo and disable it afterward.

VL does not provide auto update/upgrade function like Ubuntu, so for important update/upgrade will be announce in the forum.

So basically your saying I just about never have to do the " MARK ALL UPGRADES" then " APPLY"?

Yes, that's my practice, the exception (every rule has one) being that I update everything (WITH TESTING OFF) after a fresh install. "Never" is a tough word.

Lyx and etmtk installed fine, though I had to use xfce rather than kde, and I had to update a couple of the etmtk dependencies.  Yate still won't work, from VL repository or  I believe it has to somehow be yate-qt rather than yate, but, for the life of me, can't find a yate-qt to download.

If you have anything called mkisofs -- and you probably do -- it's a later version or a mimic thereof.
'which mkisofs'
If that doesn't turn up anything, install cdrkit from the repos. That contains genisoimage and should create a symlink '/usr/bin/mkisofs', which will work fine.

I think I understand... * Scratches head and gives the puzzled look*

So basically your saying I just about never have to do the " MARK ALL UPGRADES" then " APPLY"?


Right now in my VM ( VirtualBox) says all upgrades are waiting:

2 things of Cario
lx panel ( LXDE)
and XFCE updates
( like xfce power mgr and lxde this and that)

and lots more...
