First of all i am using vector linux for 2 weeks. my past experience is not so good but i know the very basics. Everything was working fine untill i connect my laptop with an external monitor. i assume that was the start of the problem.
after i am typing my username name and password the following message appears:
Could not look up internet address for vector.linux.vnet.
This will prevent Xfce from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding
vector.linux.vnet to the file /etc/hosts on your system.
and it is giving me two options : try again or continue anyway.
i am choosing to continue. now i have the desktop with no theme everything is white instead of black (the menu bar background colors and the icons also changed) and i cannot start some programs like : gspalt , vl-hot-config (are they xfce dependent ? )
i checked from the task manager for the xfce tasks and they are running:
o Window manager (xfwm4)
o Panel (xfce4-panel)
o Desktop manager (xfdesktop)
o File manager (thunar)
o Session manager (xfce4-session)
