Hi Gilles, Derek and Peter,
Thanks for your responses. I had not appreciated what a good idea
appimages were/are :) For that reason I have avoided them. However,
having now informed myself it looks like this is the way forward and
will re-install Artful at the next opportunity and set about downloading
my first *.appimage file :)
I wonder though how this system of packaging will affect the future of
Linux Distros in general? Will they become less or more flexible for
all? At the moment I get updates automatically for all chosen
applications. IN the future it may be more difficult to locate the
package I need and, also to keep up with updates but...on reflection, no
more so than with the dreaded Windows 10 system I suppose ;)
Every day is a School day!
Many thanks again.
