KEYBOARD SWITCHING DIFFICULTIES
« on: May 22, 2009, 03:22:09 am »

Hi, I used VectorLinux  a while  ( 1 week) now since my main (1,6MHz-Dell notebook broke.
Heard it should work fine with older laptops!
Now i borrowed an old Llatitude "CPt" PII 464MHz, 1999 model and  installed a VL  5.8 Stnd on it.
As a first partition on its 20 GB hard drive I have a Win2000 on FAT32, DamnSmallLinux on second part and VL on third now! Of course I like it a lot! Have also an separate USB-320GB /home HD and lot of space on it so i don't need more space than 6GB for VL. 5.8 Stnd
 Most of it works fine,  I use Xfce and simultaneously would like to use 3-4 different languages layouts, now I have just Swedish lang, I need English, Serbian and French!
HOW CAN I GET IT TO WORK TOGETHER WITHOUT TO MESS UP WITH "VASM" EVERY TIME I NEED TO CHANGE?
I used to use GNome or KDE before, now is Kfce light.
Some good advice? Geeks, experts:...???


Thank you all Vectors, unfortunately, not everybody of us has a P4 DuoCore!

Just curious, why not VL6.0 light or standard?  I don't believe 5.8 is being supported any longer. The improvements to the 6.0 versions is considerable.

Good luck.

Thank you "budulay" for the tip about KEYBOADS again (I forgotten allready) and VL-5.9 vs 6.0 also, but I have no long time yet to live (uncurible cancer) and it's a time race now between morphine shoots and slow SeaMonkey tascs in my 5.8's Xfce or icewm, my life's dusk is coming soon!
Please help if u can!javascript:void(0);
Should appreciate a lot to "know how" adding some more spelling checkers for other languages than english (inbuild)!

Thanks a lot
