Firefox wastes space on the KDE iso and the new KDE menu is standard. If you are stuck to the old menu you can simply change that yourself.

I've only had the time to do a basic mode installation with beta7. These are my comments so far:

* An empty kplato entry is shown in the menu when doing a BASIC install
* Why isn't the terminus font used in konsole? It does support accents in greek letters.
* Is the kwebdev package needed in BASIC mode?
* Why is JRE in BASIC mode?
* The background is not the correct one. This is the background of the gdm/kdm theme, not the desktop background.
* Packages are not upgraded to their latest versions.
* The rootuser-settings package should not include any other files except the root user settings in /root. Most of those files are already in other packages, why put them in there again anyway?
* The desktop icons have an exclamation mark on them and the 1st time you launch them you get a message asking you if you should launch them. I would also like to have the desktop folder transparent widget thing.
* What is the salix_set_kde_langs package? And why does it include usersetup? It should certaily not do that.
* The default konqueror start page should be http://www.salixos.org/start. This can probably be set in skel.
* Could the shortcut icons in the taskbar be moved to the left, next to the menu button?

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Best choice is a GTK theme, that resamples Oxygen more or less. Sadly Firefox is a prog that has sometimes problems with these themes.

1) .kde have to be in rootuser-settings, .dmrc also b/c in kde root/ is different. So will have a different rootuser-settings and not conflict with the old one and call it rootuser-settings-kde
2) webdev is needed b/c of konq-plugins so b/c konqueror is in basic webdev is there too. i will put it in full and see if konq-plugins are functional.
3) salix_set_kde_langs set the lang in kde when a new user is created. I will remove it from usersetup. I will do it differently or user will do it by himself.
4) kplato-work is a bag of kde i will remove the .desktop to not shown in at all in basic.
5) ok prefer the default desktop folder transparent widget
6) i will take care of the rest too.

Also i found a way to trim the livecd size about 60MB so will feet in a cd.
But i left out of space in my hard disk :D and i have to take another disk to create the livecd.

Of course. But I'm talking about all the other files in the rootuser-settings-kde package, like wallpapers etc, that shouldn't be there.

I don't think konq-plugins should be installed in basic mode either. Just in full would be fine.

The place to do this would be localesetup and or usersetup I think. I have no problem patching them to also support kde, but we'll have to see how to do it properly. You should not create hacks like this to solve problems yourself, everything should be done in a standard centralized way.

1)so i will remove set_kde_langs package and will see it in the future.
2) Also in salix-update-notifier in line 48 where is && $SUCOMMAND gslapt --upgrade have to be
&& $SUCOMMAND "gslapt --upgrade"
It will be a new version upload to the repos with this above correction?

You are talking about konq, system-settings, konsole and dolphin shortcut icons.

The others with the clock to be to the right.

Just to be sure.
