New install of Kubuntu 16.04 and I'm completely lost
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:21:22 pm »
What have I stepped into!!!!!!!!!!!
Am I using the Linux equivalent of Window$10 or what!

It's completely changed, I can't find anything!

Where's Muon Update Manager
..... Muon Package Manager

How do I find stuff to install which I easily found in Muon Package Manager.

I ended up installing Synaptic Package Manager but might remove it and install Muon as it deals more with Kubuntu.
Good idea, thanks Mark.

I think the reason I ended up installing Synaptic was 'Discover' came up blank when searching for 'muon'.

muon should be installable, because it's in the 16.04 repos.

Well, as I said in my last post, 'Discover', the new 'installer medium' does not show any results when searching for 'muon'. I had to install muon using the commands in terminal.

Well "Discover" is either dumber or smarter then .. depending on your viewpoint :)
