Perhaps I'll do the same, I just got tried of constant crashes with xfce4 on vl6. Maybe I should have just downgraded the xfce as people suggested and saved myself all this hassle. Steven
I had reinstalled xfce4-4.4.3 since I did not like version 4.6.1.
A while ago I tested VL7-Live-RC-1.7 and what I checked worked. Internet connected
w/o me doing anything, found my printers, skype passed test, Abiword opens
.doc files correctly. As for sound when I booted with th webcam connected to
USB I could not get alsa working, therefore no sound except for skype which 'thinks'
the webcam has sound
. Booting with webcam disconnected gave me alsa with
sound. Then connecting webcam and making the necessary changes in skype
all worked. There is a way to go around this as a thread in forum will show. Forgot which one.
One has to add a line in /etc/modprobe.d/sound
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory
