"sbbuilder" means "SlackBuild builder". So one would run QupZilla.SlackBuild as root to do the fetching and the building.

Sbbuilder does a great job of turning out a properly formatted VL-style SlackBuild. In the case of a browser or such, an actually useful build is usually several edits on down the line yet.

BTW, anyone have a working "surf" on VL?

Here's another link. It's still Ubuntu-specific, but it cuts out a lot of the extra wordiness of the "official" page, and I think that makes it easier to follow. With isight-firmware-tools in VL repo, shouldn't be hard to adapt.

A wild idea: @ The Headacher - if you create another user and do a diff -r between the one who lost the desktop and the one who still has it, does anything show up that could be XFCE-related? Or even X-related, considering that neither awesome nor want to work? Ok, first you need to verify that at least awesome works with a fresh user, then install fluxbox and verify that. Btw... after you have installed fluxbox, pls check if it suddenly/magically works for an old user who lost his desktop.

I think in the direction that somehow during usage a configuration file gets corrupted in such a way that either the desktop / window manager refuses to start... Hmmm... there could be something unusual in your ~/.xsession-errors, do you see something. Maybe something that isn't there with a fresh user?

Thanks, everyone, for you efforts in trying to help me out with this, so am I correct in assuming that as of right now there is nothing available for Linux that is compatible with Flash Player 14.0 or higher?

Doubtful it's going to happen. VL 7.1 is due to go RC3 very shortly and is extremely close to going final. You're better off going that route.

Can anybody upload newer GCC
in version 4.7.x , 4.8.X. 4.9.x   for vector 7.0 64bit to test repo?
current gcc on vector 7,0 's too old, many software can 't be  operated with gcc 4.5.x series at all.

thanks in advance!
