  • fixed several xlunch issues
  • updated to latest Debian stable

  • add rfkill so users can switch on/off their wifi devices
  • make xlunch in Slax search for icons in /usr/share/pixmaps too, else many apps won't show up in the list
  • if there are more rows with icons in xLunch, next row is displayed at the bottom of screen, should be on top
