hi, thank you for replying. I left microsoft years ago, though I also have a
Mac that someday I'd love to put the full Trisquel version on. For now it's
on a VM there.
I saw the packages in Synaptic, read a few of the properties to be sure what
was involved. Some have a description that implies it's the actual full
program. My files are backed up, so I'm ready to do it. I don't understand
much techno but I manage ok with help. I forgot how much memory I have but
it's about 2 GB I think. What is fluxbox? Before doing anything I have to
delete what I have, except Trisquel Mini, because I have no backup program or
startup disk. Whatever I nstalled also has something called openbox, and
something else, starts with an L. My poor machine is a netbook I hardly used,
it had microsoft on it, I got help converting it almost a year ago, using my
Mac to correspond with someone who guided me on a messenger program, also
helped me set up the VM there to test Trisquel to see how I'd like it.
There's no need to PM, though I really appreciate the offer, maybe this will
help someone else, too.
