Excellent. Thanks 1000000.
the package was installed, and all I needed was to add it to the panel (right click on panet, then add...). very simple job. Also the ability to change languages via the keybord was easily done via the properties of the package (right click on icon). Now I can switch languages on the fly as I am typing.
So far very impressed with v7.0. seems to have detected everything on my old thinkpad R40.
I would say that this request can be closed
