  • Linux Lite: 4.4 64bit
I'm a retired IBM Systems Engineer with over 50 years of IT experience but unfortunately none in Linux. However in a triumph of ignorance and superstition over science and technology Linux Lite (LL) was successfully installed running under Virtual Box (VB) 5.2.26 on my PC running Win 10. The screen desktop appears OK but when SOME menu items (software updates) are selected NOTHING HAPPENS - nada, no launch, no err msg !! Rotten thing to do to a nice man like me. What am i doing wrong ??  How is this fixed and why is there no err msg ?  (luckily one of the games will run so that i can stay busy while waiting for your response).

The version of LL is (i think) 2.6/3.x/4.x (64-bit)

REALLY Bewildered Bob

I'm confused too. Which version of LL? No support (updates for 2.xx series). You should be able to run the 4.xx series fine if you're on Windows 10 like you say.

Thanx for the help. LL 4.4 has just been installed and appears to work as advertised running until Virtual Box.
