Since I use mostly fluxbox, I did not have the time to search for a solution, but my xfce config file must be corrupted. Bottom panel simply disappeared, but I won't annoy you guys, just an observation. I will look for a solution when I have the time. Not critical. Tks

For example, it is convenient to have Firefox as a package, but not necessary. Thus, if dropping it releases resources that can be used elsewhere, then why not do so? Slackware does not disable the Check for Updates command like Arch does, anyway.

It may seem convenient to have a slackbuild for Eclipse, but there are so many official packages that it can be also treated as a drastic reduction in options. More so since Eclipse handles self update and feature management nicely. I guess the set of Eclipse packages in Arch is a step in the wrong direction, leaving Eclipse on its own completely must be a step in the right one.

Actually, come to think of it, postfix and courrier imap might be nice if they came with Slackware. They're both simple to configure, and there's a *ton* of how-to guides that are current on the internet. They appear ( I have no actual data ) to be heavily used and so, they might be nice addition's to the inventory.

Solved the problem with XFCE. I don't know what happened, but I had to remove all of xfce ~/.config and ~/.cache files and then reinstall XFCE and the panels came back. What bothers me now is why, every new XFCE session I start, I have to go manually to system settings to change my keyboard layout. It doesn't make a permanent change in "KDE keyboard layout switcher". In KDE it works fine, I always have an icon to change my keyboard layout. In XFCE, no.

I hope you never see the problem...

Because if you ever have the misfortune for any unforeseen reason to have your system shutdown without running lilo immediately after installing a new kernel, you'll understand all too well what the problem is. It's just annoying to have to remember each I upgrade my kernel to have another console open ready to run lilo as soon as the new kernel has been installed. And frankly, I don't think lilo is anywhere near as convenient as grub for installing and maintaining multiple kernels (for testing or any other reason) on a single system. It would be nice to easily keep the old kernel in place while having the choice to boot a newer kernel without having to edit lilo each and every time you switch from one kernel to another. It simply would be safer.

But I realize that there's nothing that will ever convince any of you that anyone has any right to think outside the box that Pat built.

Well. At least we agree on something!

This quote that you have for your signature is the foundation of what I believe. So I commend you if this is actually something that we share in common. Difference doesn't mean better or worse. It only means different. That we have different opinions is very healthy. I encourage everyone to explore the horizons of their imagination and be bound to as little as possible. Mental confinement is the worst prison to live in.

I've explored the horizons of my imagination many times, and fallen over the edge once or twice.

To be equally motivated to universal knowledge... That's where communication begins.

It is only important that you fall in love with your commitment to exploration. As long as more parties share that commitment, each of them will have something truly valuable to contribute to the equality of knowledge. Because the sad fact is, that we can be equally ignorant and be bound to communicating only upon our mutual ignorance. So fall as many times as you need to. Just never give up on the process of exploration in every possibility imaginable.

Hm, a compelling reason to purchase more box-sets of Slackware.
