On my Frugal grub install, USBview functions flawlessly..
I have the run option in the top of myDSL menu after installing.
Click on the name, USBview, and the app window pops up onscreen.

I run my frugal toram, so I never use an /optional area.
When I tried this, I got doubled 'myDSL' menus, with others non-functional.
Root placed extensions continue to function correctly at boottime.

I have been using a directory called '/storage' , which mirrors the mirrors.

I will test without the /toram' option, and feedback...

Likewise, please test alsadebs.dsl for proper loading,
and the 'ALSA Install" feature working in your myDSL menu.

Let me try to explain how it is currently setup.
Lets start with a working example:
Extension name scite.dsl

rule 1. Given an extension name the menu item must be the same basename i.e,

Now the following rules apply to the internal menu label i.e.,
[exec] (Scite) {.......}

rule 2. Must be different from the menu item name from rule 1 else optional loading will fail.

rule 3. The leftmost word of the menu label must be unique. Use _ to achive result if necessary.


Now for extension USBview.tar.gz
menu item is /tmp/ - passes rule 1.
internal menu name is USBview -  result fails rule 2.


Suggestion for new firefox, use menu label such as Firefox_1.0.4 will make it unique and obvious to the user which version it is.

This has been this way since version 0.7.1
Hope this clears things up.
