Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, this is a testing box I'm working on. I am running a custom kernel, maybe something broke in my kernel compile. I will do another full install then try LXDE again. Which is the best option, use your prebuilt packages, or try again with sbopkg ?
I just did a fresh clean install of Slackware 13.1 and used sbo package with your queue to install LXDE. while checking things I found PCMan still does not find a usb drive. However, if I open Thunar or dolphin from the menu both list the drive and will access it. I had not noticed that behavior before, it didn't cross my mind to check. Maybe I did a fresh install for nothing.My output of /var/log/packages does match yours now.
I just discovered it is now mounting usb drive under /media/disk. I do not however have an option to safely remove or unmount. It doesn't show in the side panel of PCMan as it does in Thunar. I don't know if that is normal or not.

Reason: Additional information
On a separate note the latest version of lxpanel for Slackware64-current is back to battery applet not reporting correctly, while AC is not connected. I opened the batt_sys.c and it looks like the patch (Bug3006059)
[lxde/lxpanel] / src / plugins / batt / batt_sys.c is now coded in there. Did you revert both line 150 and 215 to pre-patch to fix last time?
