OK got it working with blender in Slacko 5.3.1
Will provide details later
Basically . . .
Install accelerated driver (ATI, Intel or Nvidia)
get Openshot 1.4 SFS, Blender SFS
change location of Blender in preferences (somewhere in /opt)
Blender can be used for animated titles will see what I can do . . .
you need xfce SFS for reliable use
rename any xfce to xfce.sfs otherwise boot loader will not see it
go to prompt
type xwin startxfce4
