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.

Haven't done anything, except installing Adobe Reader (from SBo) on one of the machines (the one I have now access to and the one the screenshot shows). The other one runs a still pristine MLED; I'll check it later and will update this post if I find a difference.
EDIT: I have checked now and can confirm that the about:plugins page in Firefox is the same on the pristine MLED 14.1 system.

Reason: Add details
Ooops. Sorry. I took this for granted, but I should have explained this in more detail. On the other hand, the old Brasero was a bit buggy, and the upgraded version seems to work perfectly.
No worries! After upgrading brasero (I must admit that I haven't used it so far, so I am not aware of the problems you mention) I was wondering if I need all the new gst* packages, but after trial-and-error I found out that these were needed indeed
A cosmetic glitch: the tooltips for the two workspaces in XFCE are in English *and* French. So the tooltip for the current one says 'Current workspace: "Espace de travail 1"', while for the the inactive it is 'Click to switch to "Espace de travail 2"'.
How can I make these to be consistently in English?
I wasn't aware that MLED already shipped pysetuptools and I installed a newer version of it as a dependency for another package from SBo. Now slackpkg upgrade-all says that:
Checking local integrity... DONE
You have a broken /var/log/packages - with two versions of the same package.
The list of packages duplicated in your machine are shown below, but don't
worry about this list - when you select your action, slackpkg will show a
You can (B)lacklist, (R)emove, or (I)gnore these packages.
Select your action (B/R/I):
What would the recommended action be in such a case?
In fact I am more inclined to keep the package provided by MLED (the one tagged "microlinix") for consistency. The fact that led me to seek a more experienced opinion was the significant difference in versions, i.e. 0.9.8 vs 2.1... I hoped to get niki's point of view about what the "official" solution would be, so until he jumps in with his recommendation I'll remove the newer package and keep fingers crossed
