Success (I think)!
With sbbuilder I built fontforge-20090408-i586-1vl60.tlz on VL 6 Light. I installed the package on my VL6 Standard Deluxe partitions on two computers and FontForge is working in both. However, there is no fontforge.desktop file in /usr/share/applications. How can I fix that? Is every VL package supposed to include a *.desktop file?
Thanks, everyone, for all the help so far!
The easiest way would be to include the .desktop file in your build Script. with sbbuilder use the --xdesktop flag it will create a .desktop entry in the build script that you can then edit for your particular build. You will have to know where the program places it's Icon though.
keep at it . Good work!
