    Knoppix V6.7.1

    Klaus Knopper has published a new Knoppix version: KNOPPIX 6.7.1 / ADRIANE 1.4 - Live CD / DVD

    These comments are based on my brief recent acquaintance with the
    Knoppix 6.7.1 LiveCD and LiveUSB built from the LiveCD.
    I got my non-Adriane English iso at
    ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/

    Klaus' 6.7.1 is certainly a very generous upgrade of Knoppix 6.7.
    A major consideration, I think, may have been going back to IceWeasel
    for reasons affecting the Adriane suite of programs. In so doing,
    however, Klaus has somehow retained an avenue to obtain Chromium
    if desired and upgraded many key elements of the distribution
    at the same time.

    The new distro has a 3.0.4 Linux kernel, a 6.0.2 IceWeasel browser,
    LibreOffice 3.4.3 with all its bells & whistles and Adriane 1.4-4.
    Mine boots to on-line in 59 seconds, same as Win7 start-up time
    on this laptop.

    In making my LiveUSB, I chose not to re-format my 6.7 LiveUSB. This
    may be the reason that my 'Install Components' does not offer to d/l
    additional fonts. I had these fonts on the 6.7, now I don't, and
    I don't have the option to install them either. What I gained was a
    small benefit of not having to re-install a few comfort-files I usually
    keep on mnt-system side of the USB. My advice: do the re-formatting.

    My Synaptic says Chromium is 'installed', but Chromium-Browser is not.
    I suspect there's not room enough for both Chromium and IceWeasel
    browsers on a normal CD which also has LibreOffice with all its extras.

    Strange behaviour of LXDE menu

    I like the panel at the top of the screen. But if I select 'Panel preferences => Position: top', I have no LXDE menu, only an empty frame at the left edge from bottom. This doesn't occur with 'Position: left, right or bottom'

    There is no difference, when I upgrade the LXDE stuff from stable to testing.

    Hi, Werner

    I confirmed your observation when first posted;
    however, I like mine at the bottom, so I didn't comment then.
    Sorry.

    I'm sure KK would like to know.

    Thank you for your information.

    I think it is an error caused by Knoppix; in the LXDE forums nobody described this behaviour. In the meantime I also asked at "debian-knoppix@lists.debian.org". Perhaps KK or anyone else has a tip for me.

    Upgrades available to 6.7.1

    .
    There are some upgrades available to Knoppix 6.7.1 now in Synaptic.

    Since I use a smallish LiveUSB, I don't do wholesale updates.
    I only do selective updates that I expect may have some significance.

    I would expect that
    IceWeasel 6-something to 7.0-1 is probably is worth switching-to; but
    LibreOffice update from 1.3.4.3-1 to 1.3.4.3-2 may not be worth the effort.
    Just judging by the version syntax.

    I note that
    NetworkManager update from 0.8.4.0-2 to 0.9.0-2 is possible;
    I hope someone will give us an informed opinion on this one.

    Comments on other hidden gems, and other opinions are surely welcome here.

    I've found the cause of this strange behaviour; it is the testing version of "lxpanel". After downgrade to stable version "0.5.6-1" I have the menu at my preferred position.

    Hi, Werner.

    This may be too late, but here goes:

    Have you investigated the Desktop Preferences pop-up GUI to make your menu appear?
    That is: Right-Click (on desktop)>Desktop Preferences>Advanced tab>Show Menus.

    That might be worth a try.

    This doesn't show the menu at top and it is a well known bug.
