How are the myDSL extensions supposed to work?
I saved the files onto my USB key and used emelfm to get to them but they don't seem to load up.

Open an xterm terminal by using the right-click menu or clicking the desktop icon. Then, enter "mydsl-load path/to/mydslfile.dsl"
Make sure it says dsl as the user in the left most part of the xterm command line prompt. This means you are under the user "dsl" which is how dsl apps must be loaded.
