Also, jdk-7u45-i586-1_microlinux seems to be outdated ATM as well...

... Or you can just upgrade Niki's package as he provides all you need to build 2.1.
Thanks for the info! This might be a sign that the microlinux-repo will be updated soon

You can upgrade it yourself as well. As indicated in the SlackBuild you can put in the same directory a new source tarball and either (re)move the old one or give the filename of the new one as the first argument of the SlackBuild.

Sorry I'm a bit behind with all this. ATM I'm teaching Linux (Slackware, heh) full-time every day for a company in Montpellier. Plus, I'm facing a lawsuit for google-bombing a far-right journalist. I'll keep you posted.

Good for you Niki. Maintaining a wonderful, helpful distribution, while teaching Slackware to the corporate world, and destroying right wing propaganda at the same time. Let me find out you have a superheroes costume in your closet! We need more men like you in the world. Bravo!

No problem, niki, keep up the good work!!! Meanwhile, if needed, we might switch to alienbob's repo to get high-priority updates for JDK and flash-player. OK?

[SOLVED] How to integrate latest google-chrome as a preferred application with MLED-14.1?

The problem in 1 sentence: due to numerous random crashes I experienced lately, I uninstalled mozilla-firefox, installed google-chrome [1] (built via fakeroot using ruari's latest-chrome script), then edited /usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop accordingly [2], but XFCE's "Preferred Applications" dialog doesn't show google-chrome as an alternative web browser [3].

[1]
Code:
 33.0.1750.152 (Official Build 256984)
[2]
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Web Browser
Name[de]=Webbrowser
Name[fr]=Navigateur Internet
Comment=Access the Internet
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Exec=google-chrome-stable %U
Icon=google-chrome
Terminal=false
Categories=Network;X-XFCE;X-Xfce-Toplevel;
OnlyShowIn=XFCE;
X-XFCE-MimeType=x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;
[3] only "Links Text Browser" and "Lynx Text Browser" appear in the drop-down menu for "Web Browser". Previously I tried alienbob's chromium build that integrated just fine with MLED-14.1 at that point, but due to problems with the flash-player plugin(s) I decided to go with the latest google-chrome (which works better in that respect IMHO). I know that I can choose google-chrome-stable in "Other...", but I need to know what am I missing to make things JustWork(tm)

EDIT: With the help of a thread at the Ubuntu Forums I managed to resolve the issue: 1) I edited the google-chrome.desktop file and removed the superfluous sections (making the file more similar to exo-web-browser.desktop), 2) I set Google Chrome to be my default browser (via the button in Settings). Now there is a corresponding "Google Chrome" entry in the "Preferred Applications" settings dialog.
