where are tools?

there are no tools for study, not in menu or no place?

fantastic system, beautiful characters, but...

Dear Faging,

Appreciate your fantastic work. The Chinese characters are so beautiful that makes daily jobs on the computer full of joy and peace.

However, I experience one big problem that menu and icons become blurred and cloudy after a few hours of working on the slax6 operation system. While the background image resolution was good. I have no idea.

The other systems like ubuntu, puppy, slitaz, and even windows xp work fine. I think it is not a hardware issue.

Since I was not able to take a shot of the fuzzy menu and screen, hope you understand the problem described above.

Best Regards

I downloaded the latest version of Slax 2 days ago.
Today 12.April.2011.
I faced the same problem you encountered!!!

How do you solve the problem?

John from Malaysia.

Slax is not stable when you

Slax is not stable when you run it as livecd. I suggest you use Ubuntu, which is more stable. You can copy the stardict dictionary files to your Ubuntu. copy the dic folder (under usr/stardict) to homefolder/.stardict/dic

I use Ubuntu 8.10 for daily works.

You may visit slax.org and find the answer there.

Good luck!

Please share the lzm module without the whole slax

I've slax already, and I don't want to download it again. Please, make the additional module (lzm) to be downloadable.

Chajei input method ?

How can I switch the input method to Chajei in your live CD ?

Thanks

I will put Chajei input next

I will put Chajei input next release. For now, you can go to Slax.org and get some help there.
