checked that and it is "joined up" connected.
So I'm online in Evolution but still greyed (grayed
) out button. funny but Thunderbird works fine.
I've decided to re-install Slackware and not go for Dropline Gnome this time.
It will give me much needed practice in setting everything up from all the great install-guides out there.
Just as a matter of interest, what other versions of gnome will integrate with Slackware?
EDIT reinstalled 24 hrs later with GSB 2.20 and everything is fine.
