    Updating Linux.

    They do indeed, as does Synaptic Package Manager, which is another (GUI-based) option for running Updates. Note to helpers, the OP is on LXLE unless he has changed it. For seven years, with Debian-based distros such as yours, I have been running a Bash script out of Terminal. It reads as...

    setting up firewalld on lite

    G'day @66Drew66 and welcome to Apart from the good advice you are getting above, I also have the following, this for after you get your problem solved: Linux Lite by default has a product called Timeshift installed. If you had run Timeshift first thing after a successful install...

    Rock Roxx

    Wow, this is Freaky Sunday! I was just over at Members Intros, reading David G's revelation that he can't jump, which prompted me to look up and link Van Halen's "Might as Well Jump", then came over here, and blow me down, find Tobey posts the above. More Van Halen Chris

    copy packages between hardware

    I have read that article you linked to, and I question the use of rpm. rpm is Redhat Package Management, as used by Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Fedora, centOS &c. As I understand it, you are on Ubuntu 21.10 'Hirsute Hippo' on the desktop and on a Debian of some description on the Pi (you...

    Today's article is about Ubuntu Restricted Extras...

    I've whacked the mole for a 5 anyway, but it might also be worthwhile distinguishing between this metapackage and ubuntu-restricted-addons ? Wiz Avagudweegend

    How do you specifically install a GTK-PPP tar.gz in Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

    In Australia we call that "fixed wireless", and Elaine and I have the small, unobtrusive, antenna on our roof. In Virginia there is VABB who provide that service, Vicky, and you would be in the NLOS (non-line of sight) category. Check it out at Chris...

    Anybody have any idea how to code this thing?

    @Repondeo it does not appear that you wish to take advice offered above seriously, and this thread is in General Linux, while your ramblings appear to address just about anything other than LInux. I am locking this Thread while I deliberate on whether to delete it. Thanks to all Helpers, as...

    Install package on different architecture

    OK, Ta for that. With Pi's and ARM I go out of my comfort zone, so I will likely defer to Pi users. You haven't said whether the Pi is Running a Linux, if so which? and Whether it has internet connectivity? If yes to both, then you could likely download the package straight to the Pi...

    Install package on different architecture

    Not really - is not the most user-friendly site for navigation, just useful once you get the hang of it. I'll come back to that. At your earliest opportunity, can you please post the output of (my comments preceded by a hash) dpkg --print-architecture # and dpkg...

    looking for advice for distro.

    Nicely done @old timer :) I have been busy the last 2 days and have only logged in while I am installing LXLE, writing this from Seamonkey. I have been using it since version 12.04 (in amongst my stable of 60+ Linux). I have always had a soft spot for it, and for its LXDE desktop environment...
