  • Linux Lite: 3.2 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E7500 3.0GHz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel 4 Series Integrated Graphics
Everything seems to be ok with that.  I get "Linux Lite 2.0 LTS \n \l" and "Ubuntu 14.04 trusty Linux Lite 2.0".  I didn't have to change anything in leafpad.

Any other suggestions?

Strange.  I'm not sure what else might be causing the problem.  Maybe someone else has better idea.

Obviously, something changed.  I don't know what.  I'm sure I hit 'y' thinking that was what was needed for the updates to take effect.

I've been poking around on various threads and the thing that I find interesting here is "the answer is always  no" in the particular situation of a config file update. So, if the answer is always no, why would you ask the user what to do? Especially since most of the people you'd like to get on board or not going to be technical?

See here:  http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=180818#p941559.  Same answer applies to Linux Lite as Mint in this post.
