Congratulations on the light release. Nice desktop theme. Clean icewm menus. Good choice in ice gil theme. I was curious - I know how to launch urxvt with transparency and I know how to launch urxvt with tabs, but so far I've been unsuccessful at launching urxvt with both options. Can you give me a hint please? Thanks.


Here you have an example for a ~/.Xdefaults for urxvt. HTH

URxvt.tabbed.tabbar-fg:   8
URxvt.tabbed.tabbar-bg:   0   3   0
URxvt.keysym.C-Delete:   perl:matcher
URxvt.matcher.pattern.1:   \\bwww\\.[\\w-]+\\.[\\w./?&@#-]*[\\w/-]
URxvt.matcher.button:   1
URxvt.scrollstyle:   plain
URxvt.transparent:   true
URxvt.internalBorder:   2
URxvt.perl-ext-common:   default,tabbed
URxvt.scrollBar_right:   true
URxvt.shading:   20
URxvt.perl-ext:   default,matcher
#URxvt.fading:   40
URxvt*reverseVideo:   true
URxvt.blendType:   alphablend
URxvt.borderLess:   false
URxvt.scrollBar:   true
URxvt.scrollTtyKeypress:   true
URxvt.urlLauncher:   firefox
URxvt.pointerBlank:   true
URxvt.pointerBlankDelay:   3
URxvt*color12:   #6661ee
urxvt.font:   xft:Liberation Mono:pixelsize=14
urxvt.boldFont:   xft:Liberation Mono:bold:pixelsize=14

Hats off to you guys!  Vector Light 6.0 is awesome!

I have a lot of older computers, I have used several small/light distros of Linux on them, but this has got to be the best.

This is coming from a guy that had Damn Small Linux and Anti-X on everything, including my newer systems. 

I got turned onto Vector v5.9 Standard and loved it.  It is fairly light, but when I started messing with Vector Light v6.0, I was amazed.  You guys even have Google Gadgets in your packages I can download. 

Awesome!  Great work!

Have Vector Light v6.0 running on the following systems:

PII class
PII DUAL 350mhz, 768mb RAM - Runs great!
PII 400mhz, 512mb RAM - Runs great!    (My garage radio, used for streaming radio)

PIII class
PIII 1.1ghz, 512mb RAM  - Runs fast!
PIII 600mhz (Celoron), 768mb RAM - Runs Great!

PIV Class
PIV 1.8mhz, 1gb RAM - Blazes!  (Home Office PC)

Vector Light v5.9 and v6.0 are complete OS's.  They work great for work stuff and would be perfect for a business that has older hardware. 

I am also happy to see I can download Gambas for Vector light.  I write code in Gambas. 

Again, GREAT WORK!  Very pleased!

I've been using it on a 400MHz Celery (384Mb ram) for a couple of weeks and it runs flawlessley. Much better than Ant-ticks/Me-piss (the unfortunately-named 'intifada' release) and without the stupid 'EULA'.

Wow!  Great release! VectorLinux 6.0 Light works perfectly on my old Compaq Evo laptop. P3 800 mhz proc, 256 meg ram. I'm tempted to run it on my P4 2.4ghz proc, 1 gig ram  that has VL 6.0 Standard currently on it.

I've been a long time anti-X user being partial to rolling release distros but always seem to keep coming back to Vector Linux.

Keep up the good work,
