 :)You might want to take a serious look at the PaleMoon browser. I don't know how good the 64-bit version is, but the latest 32-bit release (27.2.1) is excellent. If you looked at in the past, you should try it [again]. This latest release is definitely the best one yet IMHO. I've been using it since 2014, and never once did I seriously consider returning to Firefox. It was originally forked from Firefox 24, so it gives you the very best of what Firefox once was (but it's also very well maintained & up-to-date). Extensions can be added, and ALSA sound (as well as OSS v.4) works just fine (so does the Flash plugin). Here's the URL:
Check it out. It sure beats Google Chrome & similar monstrosities.

Again. php.ini is where the extension will be called. You may have more than one copy floating around on your system (it happens).

Not sure what we want to do about this. Rumor has it Firefox can be recompiled with ALSA support put back in, but from what I'm reading in that whole train wreck of replies, it may break more things.

Where are we at with Pulse Audio support within the distro?

Thought I had already mentioned this:  when I send my browser to localhost (aka idlegion39), it opens the index file.  but if I try to open wp-admin/wp-install.php, I get
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
Apparently, just installing and running mysql is not enough!
I can find no place in the httpd.conf or mod_php.conf files that refers to mysql.  There several in php.ini but they seem to be setting variables.
Any suggestions?

If you would like to try some local hacking, open a terminal and issue these commands:
Code: [Select]
su -
mkdir -p cups/src
cd cups/src/
cp /usr/doc/cups-2.2.2/cups.SlackBuild .
sed -i s/2.2.2/2.2.3/ cups.SlackBuild
chmod +x cups.SlackBuild
cd ../
upgradepkg cups-2.2.3-i586-1vl72.txz
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups start

Long version: In a terminal, become root. Make a directory "cups" with a sub-directory "src" and change to it. Copy the script for building cups from /usr/doc/cups-2.2.2 to this location. Edit the script to change the version number from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3. Make the script executable, then execute it. Script will download sources, create the package and place it in the directory above "src". Change to that level and upgrade the package. Finally, execute the start command for cups.

If all goes well, you should now be able to use the "Manage Printing" from your menu, under "System", and hopefully get your printer working.

Another good catch!  :)

CUPS won't start on my system either. Stay tuned for updates.
