Posted by ardyandkari on Feb. 26 2006,05:15Hello,
i just downloaded elmo.dsl from the mydsl icon and i cannot run it...maybe im just dense or something, but when i double click the elmo.dsl icon in the file manager, the computer goes nuts and starts printing "----end of output----". im sorry if this has been covered before, but i searched for elmo and couldnt find anything...
Posted by cbagger01 on Feb. 27 2006,05:14You should be able to activate it by highlighting the file and then push the MYDSL button in the middle of the file manager (Emelfm).
It should then appear on the DSL main menu (Right-Click on some unused part of the desktop)
