1  Damn Small Linux / Other Help Topics / Mouse Configuration on: September 24, 2013, 05:47:16 AM
First, I am 99% impressed with the new release candidate of Damn Small Linux.  My only issue is with the mouse configuration tool, which does not allow the definition of a single or double-click behavior.   In older releases, this could be done through the icontool.lua program.  Is there a way to do this at the command line?  Perhaps through .xinitrc? 
2  Damn Small Linux / DSL Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Your favorite lightweight apps? on: February 09, 2013, 01:13:55 PM
Lots of 'em.   I like apps that do what they are supposed to and don't waste processing power.

Beaver is my editor of choice, and Nano in a shell, so it's great to see these retained in the new release candidate.     

Would like to see a gxine.dsl for GTK+.  I was able to install Xine.dsl through MyDSL, but this version of Xine has some trouble with fullscreen mode on my Celeron Mendicino machine, while gxine works well in Puppy, on the same machine.   It presumably would also do so (or better) in DSL, so a .dsl extension for that would be nice to see.

No matter what distro one uses, Flash for YouTube will soon be an issue since Adobe is ending Linux support and YouTube will inevitably update its requirements.  Luckily, I have become accustomed to downloading YT vids through KeepVid and such, and playing them back through Xine, or through the DOS DUGL Player which runs flawlessly in DOSEMU.  Perhaps a look at gnash is in order.   It would be nice to see a Linux substitute for Adobe.
