 :) Yes, I too am dying to see the Vector SoHo 5.9!  I know you guys aren't a big organization, and things take time... but I will be checking this site frequently!

I liked this release but could not find the corresponding installable version.  Is there one?  The only 5.9 version used Xfce which I hate!  The 64bit version uses this and I found that I could not install my printer.
Please give me, and others, the choice of desktop environment.

there are some wm/DE in the repos. you can get kde from slapt-get if you installed vl-std or vl-light.

I don't know if slapt-get kde package will be sooo fine tuned as the one in vl-soho

Please be patient Nobby, there is indeed a SOHO in the wings (I believe) and check for its release on a daily basis. The VL SOHO team want to get things just right, especially this time as they will ask us to part with some cash for it. This will be my third VL SOHO, with each version a marked improvement. I'm sure it will be worth the wait (and certainly worth the money if the Preview is anything to go by).

Yes, I didn't like XFce initially... but the longer I use it.....it kind of grows on me. I installed KDE, on my 5.9 standard, from the 5.9 repositories with Gslapt but it is not as nice as the Preview, as Kidd said. We just need to be patient.

I prefer to set up my printer with the KDE Printer set-up tool but have you tried VASMCC > Services > CUPS Printing? That did it for me.

VL 5.9 SOHO is coming there are many working hard to make sure it's a first class release and as bug free as possible.  as far as your printer install in std.  go to any browser and type http://localhost:631 and follow the instructions.
