For the flash plugin, I believe the folder is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ (or /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ for 64-bit)

This is where you want to copy the libflashplayer.so file

As for mounting the USB-stick, what desktop environment are you using, KDE, XFCE or something else?

I don't really know about fluxbox.

What you would have to do is search for how to create a launcher in fluxbox.

What would work is to do this:

Code:
okular &
in the console. Then, the program will not close when you close the terminal.

Jdownloader works fine here. Don't forget to install Java, you will find it in /extra on your DVD.
You don't have to use konsole to start programs, just do a right-click on a free space on your desktop and you will get a menu.

By default, Fluxbox does not support icons on the desktop, but there is a little Fluxbox utility called FBDesk you can use to put them there.

See the Fluxbox wiki to learn how to do that, how to customize your wallpaper and startup programs, edit your menus, and much more.

I love the elegant simplicity of Fluxbox.

If you have a full Slackware install, you can use the KDE wireless thingee under Fluxbox (indeed, you can run any of the included programs under Fluxbox. I haven't used KDE for a long time, even though I use many KDE applications, so I don't remember what it's called--KDE lost me with that Akonadi monster.

I would suggest that, since this is a different issue from the one in your first post, you start a new thread about it, including what you have tried. You might also search in the Slackware forum.

Alien Bob's wiki has a page on wifi in Slackware, but his site seems to be down right now:
