VectorLinux 7.0 GOLD - LiveCD - Problem after install of Glabels
« on: December 02, 2011, 07:51:48 am »


I am trying out VectorLinux 7.0 GOLD's LiveCD.  I searched for Glabels, because I'll need that software on my Desktop.  I installed Glabels.
After Glabels was installed I plugged in my Centon 4 Gig Flash Drive, and now all the Folders display without Icons, and appear as TEXT,
the same as the Files.  If I don't have Glabels installed The Flash Drive's Folders & Files appear correct.  What is going on?

I've also tried to get my Laptop's Display Resolution greater than 1024 x 768, but that isn't an option.  I can't find any Hardware Drivers
to install, or anything to allow me to enable the higher Display Resolution.  Is it possible to install something I've missed to increase the Resolution,
or maybe I'll have to do an install to Hard Drive before that option is available? 

I also can't install VectorLinux 7.0 GOLD in Virtualbox to test the Software.  I was hoping that would work, allowing me to give it a test drive.
Am I missing something?  How can I test this version without doing a Hard Drive Install, or is it possible?

Thanks.  I really like this Version and I am on a quest to locate a Distro that will replace Ubuntu, since the switch away from Gnome 2.x.

as root in a terminal run the following command...
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

I will look into the fix for this later this evening. glabels will have to be repackaged.
Thanks.

stretchedthin,
Thanks!  Using
Code: [Select]
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime fixed my resolution problem.

I'll be waiting on the update for glabels, whenever you have some spare time.

THANKS!

Now that you have done the update-mime-database bit you can go ahead and use gLabels, it should be fine now.
The problem we fixed occurs only at install.
I do need to fix it though for other users who install.
