Youtube was one of my prime sources for finding out real-world information about VL, and it had a great influence on my decision to go with VL as my next main distro.

I love hearing this stuff.  I've been a little slow of late, so I'll try and pick up the pace. For those who have not subscribed or clicked the link on the desktop
here are three of the latest.  They are all related.

if you want to go full screen double click on the player window to use Youtube interface.

Changing / Adding style themes to your Vector Linux box
Changing / Adding icon themes to your Vector Linux box.
Changing / Adding fonts to you Vector Linux box (over 6800 fonts

Couple new tutorials since last post.

You can find them on the Vector-Tutorial link on the VL-7.0 desktop or if you like the option to go full screen I'll include the youtube links below.

Installing VMware Player on Slackware based OS's
  ***Note you need to have the kernel-sources installed before hand.***

Here is the latest YouTube release.

There is a bit of an easter-egg hidden within the latest release of Vectorlinux 7.0, and it is certainly something you never would expect in a Slackware based system.  What is it? The Arch Build System.  It's a big chunk of that huge selection of packages that Arch is famous for.  This can be a big deal if you learn how to use it as it can give you access to thousands of additional software titles.

Tonights tutorial.
Synergy. Control multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse

It's inevitable.  Eventually you will end up with more than one computer.  If you were smart enough to hold on to the old one, here is a way you can now use both, or 3 or 4, with one keyboard and mouse.   This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors.

Check out the Video here.

Back at home from working on the road and got another tutorial in the bag.

GDM, the Gnome Display Manager and the login window.

This tutorial is a first for me where I have set it up so you can click to navigate to anyone of six topics all involving the login window.
1. Changing the Default System Session.
2. Enable automatic login.
3. Changing the look and theme.
4. Login to another user from the current users session.
5. Adding Sounds to the login Window.
6. See the launching of an example fluxbox session.

"New themes and customization of the GDM Xfce4 login screen"

This tutorial demonstrates how you can add new themes from Gnome-look.org to create new looks for your login screen.  It even shows how to use what you find at Gnome-look.org as templates to create your own login screen.

With VectorLinux-Light 7.0 fighting VectorLinux's way up the ranks of Distrowatch, the idea behind todays tutorial is to help promote the release and act as a guide to anyone using the text installer for the first time.
Vectorlinux-Light 7.0 highlights and install.

Also posted today.
File Sharing with Thunar and SSH on your Local network.
