>>Install the gnucash slackware package from http://www.linuxpackages.net<<

That's where I got it, it doesn't work. I've been fighting with this for some time. I'm not the only one.

>>Add "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" to the mouse input section of your XF86Config. That information is readily available on the Net<<

Okay. It seems there is always some configuration to do after the initial install with anything. No bash, I'm just relating my experience.

>>
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

Thanks, will try it.


>>Never heard of lilo not installing during a Slackware install<<

No offense, but you must not have read too many slackware install forums. This is a very common problem, and has been for some time. BTW: I have installed several linux distros on my system, only slackware gives me this problem. Although, it's easy enough to fix.

>>Don't blame gnome for that. That's a problem with your X setup, or the driver itself.<<

Maybe, I think there are ways to speed up dropline-gnome, but I don't know how.
