Can someone direct me to instructions on using Synaptic Package Manager 0.84.3ubuntu1. Everything on YouTube must be out of date. Nothing looks like what I have which is a recent install from the Zorin 15 Repository.

Much thanks,

Bryan

Much thanks, Malware Removal. I downloaded the file and will have a good look tonight. Might be just what I need...

Hey Malware Removal:

Thanks again for the information you sent me. In the screen shot, I’m using the Search Function in SPM to find Waterfox Browser. After searching, you see that Waterfox shows up in the column to the left. Now, as I understand it, I have to Mark it for installation. But how? Some instructions say double click on it. Some say check the box… there is no box and double clicking does nothing. Under Packages, the Mark for Installation is grayed out. In Help, I don’t see much in the way of instructions when it comes to using the Search Function and marking a package for install.

What am I doing wrong here?

Hello b. cripps,

 

Unfortunately I can't answer your question, but I'll research it a bit more.

We might do better finding help here,

or even posting a question to that forum might be a good idea. I'll look a bit later. Have to go out for a bit..

Just to finish off, thank you once again, Zep. It would appear that SDM is working just fine. But Waterfox does not come up in any of the repositories. SDM can't find what's not there!!! So not sure what's happening here, but SDM works fine for me, just not for this download.

Once again. This is a good article, Zep... not directly related to my problem, which I think I have figured out, but worth reading and I have copied it to a file for future reference. Thank you for looking into this and sharing.

All best,

Bry
