I hooked up another hard drive, and this time I got to Desktop. I inserted a USB thumb drive, nothing happened, so I guess I must get HAL or VL-Hot.
I installed xine-ui and xine-lib with Gslapt, but xine does not appear in Multimedia menu. What must I do to get xine in the Multimedia section?
Same for VLC. Also, VLC has a misplaced volume adjust feature. The speaker icon + volume adjust are superimposed over a button, just under "Navigation".
I tried abiword from terminal, it seems that libgucharmap.so.6 is missing. That lib is not available from Gslapt with testing and patches enabled. EDIT: Abiword working now, following advice of nightflier.
I cannot use the login dialog (xdm?) to change from JWM to Fluxbox. Some problems with the cursor (stuck), once cursor is in password field.
Having trouble with VL Forum session verification. Must log out and log in each time I bring Opera browser to this site.
In VL 5.9 Std, there is a Run dialog from V-menu. When an app is started from this Run dialog, there is only an instance of the desired app. However, when the app is started from terminal, the terminal must be present for the app to continue. So if there were a Run dialog from Start in JWM, then an instance of terminal wouldn't be required in addition to the app.
Ach! I can't believe we're using K3b in Fluxbox.
In Fluxbox, gmplayer is missing openal library.
VLC not playing a .FLV from "Open with" dialog (in JWM). Xine plays .FLV passably, good AV sync.
I suggest we drop K3b from VL Lite. MyBashBurn or Grafburn would be much more suitable to a project like this.
