Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project


    • Section Articles complexes: add example(s), rephrase. English version kinda hard to understand too.
    • remove the note about templates that are not working for french, when solved.
  • To make < key > not interpreting what's inside teh tag, try enclosing the character in single quotes. for the - key you must type Minus.

(Grabbed from the ML discussion between mattfillpot and alienbob). Maybe add it to the tutorial (if it isn't yet)?

<key>'c'</key> // <key>Minus</key>
  • Add a 'tag handling' part in teh tutorial ?

Special french chars

To be used with the US dead-key layout and a configured special key.
I use the left Win key (keycode 133 = Multi_key) in the ~/.Xmodmap file.
ç: , + c
é: ' + e
è: ` + e
à: ` + a


Step-by-step for noobs: where do I start ?
This is not a complete guide, but rather helps you getting started with the basics. The goal here is to allow a clean and secure system browsing the internet. Once you get your internet connection working, this wiki will answer ALL your further questions.

1. install: follow complete'n'existing install guide
2. WM basic guide
3. setup basic firewall
4. setup network connections (to consult this site !)
5. setup a browser (needed, as FF's workin out-of-the-box ?)
6. install hardware/software, configure the system and everything else: use the wiki HOWTOS, articles, …

In general, you want to configure your hardware first. Then your system (boot files, etc), then only the software.
