+AJ Reissig Thank you AJ it's just the menu or menus I liked have gone..And those that were there don't install...JLT had this issue as well..Gno menu went..Now I haven't been in Gnome for ages and most of the download menus didn't work last time around which really is pants..It's like KDE months ago loading apps from QT4 they just don't happen..Which is why I asked because what's there doesn't always install..Oh P5 on Arch is incredible QT really is that good at bloody last :-) Many thanks AJ

So let's talk Linux and this is purely my point of view..There are only two DE that are up with the big guys..that look really professional..that could be on the market right now..And one in particular that makes Mac and Win look like a pile of crap because this DE is so so different..If I could have a business selling computers with this DE on it people would drop Mac and Win like a stone because it's so beautiful and I would make money..I'm glad these guys did go to a rolling release model..If you still don't know what this DE is here's a hint..A number 23 and 30 lol...

More daunting than installing LFS more terrifying than climbing Mt Everest and more horrendous than falling out of a plane..I have given myself a challenge to spend one night in spooky land WINDOWS..aaaaahhhhh please don't all scream at once I know this is bad but with hard hat on and the best constitution I can muster I walk once again into the unknown..I do this for all my Linux friends..I may come back a disheveled man but I promise I will come back and bring tails of woe of demons and monsters..Scares the hell out of me

So possibly non info but anyway here goes..Having bought 25 RW DVD's for next to nothing my first one has given up the ghost after 101 read-writes that's pretty good..All ISO's from 1Gb to 4Gb..I punish USB sticks and they usually last 10 runs only..DVD's yes slower but are my preferred means of installation they are reliable..See not much really but still interesting

I have come across a wonderful tool in Linux for downloading content from the BBC directly as MP4 files, god I wish I'd known about this last year for the F1 oh well, it's available for Ubuntu and Arch and possibly all the others. It's very fast at downloading as it doesn't buffer..If anyone wants this give me a shout and I can send details :-)

+Linux Lady05 Winter Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install get-iplayer
get-iplayer --refresh
get-iplayer -g number of programme you want to download

Arch
get_iplayer 2.94-2
get_iplayer --refresh
get_iplayer -g number of programme you want to download

Make sure your terminal can see all the lines..I set mine to 4000 but it's no where near that so don't panic

So here goes one more install of Manjaro and you know what it's screwed up like Ubuntu 16.04..Both are as bad as each other which is slightly upsetting..I wanted it to work badly..Broken packages were the main issue..And as for Octopi it's a complete waste of time..Someone once said stay true to your heart Arch it is PERIOD
