Maybe try :
sudo /usr/bin/pndrefresh.sh
If it works, you have to create an icon for this, like I did for Xfce, and also launch this command at KDE start if you don't want to press it.

I finally got around to installing -current to take a look at bluetooth. Wifi does not seem to work out if box. (Nm gives a "firmware missing" message.)

Will work on it more later.

Maybe better try with 14.2 as it's the next stable, anyway the bluetooth fix should be the same.

Should be only a wifi warning, it works according to my latest test.

I had the same problem with -current as already written, so I use a stick. I guess its better to use a stick as internal wifi is also very slow in earlier versions.

Stick didn't work for me either, but I did not test if I had crashed the usb host or not. Will try again though.

Ah so 14.2 has the same bluetooth problem?

The old stick that is working in 14.1 (using now) and I guess in 14.2 no longer works in -current, but I have another one that works. Maybe try another one.

I unfortunately only have one wifi stick. I'll try 14.2 and see if Wifi works there for me.

I have a problem with the USB host in 14.1 as follows :
when unplugging the wifi-stick or eth adapter without disconnecting first or switching off USB sometimes I get the message "USB disabled". Then I try to enable again (toggle) and the same message is coming so no more USB. Solution so far is to reboot, but this will hang when shutting down, so I have to do a hard reset and then at boot fsck is running. So this is a time consuming process. Is there something I can try that will help (USB again without reboot)?

Thanks for help

14.2-rc1 is on the way.
I'm currently uploading it, should be finished in one hour.
I corrected a few things, like using ktsuss instead of gksudo thanks to a script from notaz, and updated the base distro with the latest packages.

As said in the post above, I finally reached the 100% hardware support, like in previous SL4P releases.
Some may notice that Xfce startup is a bit slower than 14.1 and downward. Can't do much about this.
Also new evince/document viewer badly handles pdf with large images, so I now use xpdf as default viewer.

I'm now using 14.2 daily, everything is stable as you would expect from Slackware.
