I've also added you to the Dev page on the LL website - https://www.linuxliteos.com/code.html#devteam
Welcome aboard :)
Great. Thanks for adding me to the list. Such an honor. :)
Misko, do you think you could find a way that makes a check if an application is installed, then displays that application in bold if it is installed?
I can make the script to check if an application is installed but bold part is impossible due to zenity's limitations. I could make a column, let's say "Status" or "Installed" which would show if the application is installed or not. That way it would be easy to separate installed applications from those which aren't.
The other option is this:

You didn't mention should I use checklist or imagelist?

Checklist is preferable. I'm thinking of contacting the Zenity team to see if they are interested in adding features to their software.
Would be nice to have another column titled 'Status' to the right of Category that says 'Installed' and 'Not Installed' for each application. This will increase the overall width of the window so I will in future shorten the Descriptions. Cheers :)

There is no need for that. I can split the Description into two lines.
So far...

Would like to keep the window so there is no need for any scrolling, splitting the Descriptions would increase the height. I like that Status column :)

Take your time, love your code :) Do you have a github account? I think it's time you started publishing your code so we can get it out to people more efficiently for 32 & 64bit.

I've just opened a github account. Forked lite-software, made changes and then used a Pull Request.
I've never used github before, so I hope I did this right. :)

Could you please redo the 64bit one, seems incomplete in regard to Steam.

Steam is now on the list. It's ready for review.  :)
I couldn't do this sooner. It was very late last night.

I would like to include the same options in Remove Additional Software (check for if a program is installed or not)
Thank you misko, there is no rush to do these things, enjoy your free-time. The community appreciates your efforts :)

The new Installer shows the staus of the Restricted Extras package as Not Installed on my system.  I thought I'd installed it previously, but I installed it again.  The Istaller reported that the install was successful, but it still shows the status as Not Installed (after re-opening the Installer).  I then repeated the process again, with exactly the same result.  Is this a bug?

Hello bobw,
if you restart Linux Lite does it still say it is not Not Installed when checking again ?

Hi bitsnpcs.  Yes - I've tried that now and it's still showing status Not Installed.
