    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Oh yeah… I’m really confused. This has been an adventure that I really don’t want to repeat. BUT, with these new instructions and using wget, I now have a Waterfox folder located in my Home Directory. Then you say: “When the download is complete, follow the rest of the instructions to...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Yeah, Wiz… I am a big fan of Manjaro. I used it for many months and it worked on my crappy Lenovo better than anything. Of course I was getting a lot of flack from my “Minty” friends saying that Manjaro would break my machine and, with my limited skills, I wouldn’t be able to fix it. But it was...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    So this the command I enter into the Terminal: wget https://gist.github.com/angela-d/5f6760f5512e8b8029aeda3cbb1d26dd//storage-waterfox.netdna-ssl.com/releases/linux64/installer/waterfox-...en-US.linux-x86_64.tar

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanx Wiz: URL I get. It's your use of the term "link" that has me scratching my head. I have the Waterfox Package downloaded in Downloads. Do I click on that? Do I need to Extract to Downloads? Do you mean the "link" in the above post? This has me wishing for the Arch AUR... Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanks Wiz, that is the browser I'm trying to install. I have downloaded the package but the instructions from GitHub are flying way over my head. "Download Waterfox for Linux; Right-click & copy the URL" Click on what??!! Newbie alert!!! And after four years too. I am finding the Zorin...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanks @JasKinasis, I've had no trouble running Extreme Download Manager on my ThinkPad/Zorin 15. I get the core-dump notifications and delete them. Still have not tried XDM on the dual drive Clevo. I wanted to install Waterfox Browser first. But I can't even download the package. I get download...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    I got a little ahead of myself with installing Extreme Download Manager. I haven't got the Waterfox browser installed yet. Thanks for hanging with me... Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    No scorpions here, thank goodness. But have seen the odd shark cruising past the boat. We have an understanding. I don't bother them... they don't bother me. Barracuda, on the other hand, are delicious! Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanx Vrai... still not sure I actually need Java. Like I said, XDM seems to run fine but I keep getting the Java Core Dump messages when I use it. So something isn't quite right. And the odd thing, I don't think Zorin includes Java as part of its install. So why am I getting the Core Dump...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    One other point regarding Extreme Download Manager. On the Lenovo ThinkPad/Zorin, when I use XDM, I keep getting a message in Home that Java has performed a Core Dump. I don’t believe Java is installed on Zorin, so maybe for XDM it should be installed. Not sure how that works! XDM works just...

    Ohh, about me?

    Thanks for the welcome @Nik-Ken-Bah and the trick to using a Service Manual is not let anyone see you reading it! More impressive that way. Thanks for being a bud, @JasKinasis. I leave the promoting to my publisher. She's better at it and frankly, I don't have the time. Have a book coming out...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    I like your BUT, Wiz. Oh-h, that doesn’t sound right! Anyway, a neat trick when using the Terminal. And thanks for all your work. If memory serves, I think this is much the same procedure I used to install XDM in Mint on my single drive ThinkPad. I do remember having trouble downloading...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanx, Wiz... New Years Day and the bars are all closed. I'm sitting on the sidewalk! Have copied your post and will have a closer look later, on the boat. With the sun on the screen, I can't make out much. Talk with you tomorrow, Katie

    Setting up a dual drive for the first time. Help!

    Wiz... good to have you back in my corner. And to have your blessings for my dual drive install. A singing fridge? On a boat everything sings. I have more chokes than the Boston Strangler! I buy those ferrite noise suppressors by the case. I'll look at posting attachments and do better; I...

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanks, @JasKinasis. That's really good to know. I'm still pussyfooting around with this dual drive system but so far, I love it and in a big leap of faith, I've started transferring files. Suppose it'll take a few weeks for me to be totally comfortable, but I've come to expect that. Best, Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Wiz... ten days without power? I thought that only happened in the DR. Nice thing about living on the boat; I make my own! Doesn't help with wifi, though. Good to have you back, Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    Thanks @Vrai , that sounds simple enough. I'm probably making this more difficult than it is but right now, I'm taking baby steps. Katie

    Installing Packages on a Dual Drive System

    My new, dual drive system on the Clevo (Zorin/Gnome), seems to have been successful and I am very pleased. But being this is all new to me, I wonder about installing Packages. Most of what I need is in the Repository. I figure the computer is smart enough to know where to install something like...
