VL 7.2 Light Rc2
« on: March 21, 2017, 04:54:42 am »

Hi Folks
Installed the Vectorlinux light 7.2 Rc2 32 today.

I have an issue with the nm-applet, when clicked it shows available networks, however when one is selected it fails to pop up the password dialog. and the icon simply spins for a bit and stops.

one can enter the password manually but it takes 30 seconds or so for the wifi security tab to appear in the edit dialog.

If manually entered it connects, relogin and reboot is reconnected.

if deleted the issue returns.

Otherwise I like it so far. added leafpad to the ice panel, updated gslapt and added gimp and pysol, updated menu and unchecked the check for updates box in smplayer to stop the nag.

then naturally added fluxbox and feh

the included xdg menu maker and scrot along with a menu edit link and feh for easy wallpaper made for a simple alternative.

Is the nm-applet issue just me?

Anyway nice work

Cheers

I have seen the NM applet issue, still trying to figure out whats going on. I think it may be a service without permissions or similar. I will keep researching.

The NM issue was figured out and fixed in B2, released after RC2. Yes, I know that is backwards, but we decided to match STD in versioning, and haven't been able to remove the old ISOs yet.

You should be able to fix this issue simply by creating a directory in your home dir, called "~/.cache". Let us know how that works.

Speaking of ISOs.. you will see B2.1 as well. It is experimental and has a small issue where you need to select "icewm" from GDM. It will be rebuilt and replaced once a new version of icewm makes it into the repo.
