69 <p>
70 From spring 2011 the new way (and tool) to configure the system is TazPanel.
71 It is a CGI/web interface with a themable user interface from where you
72 can control your entire system, this includes package management, adding or
73 removing users, creating Live systems and much more. Each page provides
74 a small description to help you manage your SliTaz system. To access the
75 panel you can use the menu entry in "System Tools” or this url:
76 </p>
77 <p>
78 <a href="http://tazpanel:82">http://tazpanel:82</a>
79 </p>
82 <h3 id="network">Network connections</h3>
84 <p>Open Tazpanel and go to the
85 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/network.cgi">Network</a> tab. This shows a basic
86 overview of your networking interfaces and their states. To configure your
87 Ethernet device, mouse over the Network tab and select
88 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/network.cgi?eth">Ethernet</a>. From here you can
89 configure your device to use DHCP or a static address. To configure Wireless
90 devices, mouse over the Network tab and select
91 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/network.cgi?wifi">Wireless</a>. Here you can select
92 a network to connect to. When you click on the desired network, the Connection
93 box underneath will be appropriately filled in. Next, enter your passphrase or
94 leave the field blank for none. Finally, click the Configure button to apply
95 settings.</p>
96 <p>
97 More detailed information can be found in the Handbook:
98 <a href=""
99 >Network configuration</a>
100 </p>
103 <h3 id="apps">Applications</h3>
105 <p>
106 To have a list of all graphical applications, you can use the SliTaz menu button
107 at the top left of the screen. To have a list of command line tools, you
108 can open a terminal and double press on the tabulation button. Tazpanel provides
109 a nice GUI for package management through the
110 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/pkgs.cgi">Packages</a> tab. To retrieve a list of all
111 installed packages, open Tazpanel and navigate to the
112 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/pkgs.cgi?list">My Packages</a> page. To install new
113 packages, you must have a network connection, the DVD of packages or a USB storage
114 device containing any downloaded packages. Naturally any package management
115 can also be done from the command line using <code>tazpkg</code>.
116 </p>
119 <h3 id="office">Office suite</h3>
121 <p>
122 The SliTaz packages database provides a variety of lightweight office applications.
123 All of these packages are easily installable in a few clicks through the packages
124 manager in Tazpanel. SliTaz also provides a simple way to install the powerful
125 LibreOffice suite: just search for "LibreOffice” in the packages manager, double click
126 on "get-LibreOffice”, select the "Auto install non free package” checkbox, and click
127 Install.
128 </p>
129 <p>
130 To have a lightweight office suite: just use Abiword as the Word processor, Gnumeric as a
131 Spreadsheet and Homebank for Bank Accounting.
132 </p>
135 <h3 id="multimedia">Multimedia</h3>
137 <p>
138 Most SliTaz flavors include a wide range of sound card drivers, a volume
139 mixer and a light audio player to easily listen to any MP3 or OGG files. The Sound
140 card is autodetected at boot time and audio support works out-of-the-box
141 on many systems. If you manually add a new user and can't listen to audio, please
142 check that the user belongs to the <code>audio</code> group. For any other trouble, please
143 check the full documentation and/or use the <a href="">forum</a>.
144 </p>
145 <p>
146 Videos using common HTML5 codecs such as WEBM or MPEG4 can be watched out-of-the-box.
147 Other videos can be watched by installing one single package or using a dedicated
148 LiveCD or LiveUSB system. The SliTaz team have packaged some of the best video players
149 available under GNU/Linux:
150 <a href="">mplayer</a>,
151 <a href="">xine-ui</a> and
152 <a href="">vlc</a>.
153 </p>
156 <h3 id="root">Becoming Root</h3>
158 <p>
159 By default, SliTaz doesn't have its desktop running as root administrator:
160 it asks for a root password (default <code>root</code>) for any superuser work.
161 Therefore, it is safer and more secure. To become root in an xterm, simply
162 type <code>su</code> and enter the root password. To run a graphical application
163 as root, use <code>subox</code>. For example, to run leafpad as root you
164 would run <code>subox leafpad</code>.
165 </p>
168 <h3 id="install">Installation</h3>
170 <p>
171 SliTaz can be installed to a hard disk or on an USB mass storage device using the
172 <a href="http://tazpanel:82/installer.cgi">SliTaz Installer</a> in Tazpanel. The installer makes a full HD install.
173 SliTaz won't function in memory (RAM) anymore like in Live or Frugal mode and
174 everything is persistent.
175 </p>
176 <p>
177 To generate a LiveUSB system, you can use the "Tazusb LiveUSB Tool” from
178 the "System Tools” menu or <code>tazusb</code> from the command line. More
179 information can be found in the SliTaz Handbook:
