Those screenshots look really nice @Jerry  :) I haven't even been able to try/install LL 4 yet, let alone 4.2...this freaking internet issue is driving me crazy! :(  I'm definitely going on a trip this weekend  to someone else's house with a working wired internet and download LL 4.2 ...can't wait to try it! :)

Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Sorry, 5 minutes later and I already have a question:

When I run  systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled, I see some weird instances running:

network-manager.service                     enabled       
networkd-dispatcher.service                enabled       
networking.service                                enabled       
NetworkManager-dispatcher.service   enabled       
NetworkManager.service                       enabled   

So  network-manager.service  is different from  NetworkManager.service ??
I know they are, but why would someone need BOTH running?

And how about  networkd-dispatcher.service  and  NetworkManager-dispatcher.service ??
I know there's a small "d" letter there as well as the small caps/large caps, but why are both to be running?

I'm guessing one of the instances might be superseding the other or something like that??

You could quite easy Google each service to see what it does. You probably see the word network a lot and attribute that to repetition. Suffice to say each service is unique and necessary. Cheers.

Redshift is a nice addition to Lite Software, testing it for the first time tonight . And it comes fully translated for us non-English LL users.

Tried this last night for a few hours........A nice addition to the Distro.

Just when I thought Linux could not get much better, the Linux Lite team pulls out 4.2.
Thank you for all the people who work hard with Linux Lite. You make a difference!

@Jerry, I have 21 partitions and 2 RAID1 volumes. My /etc is highly customized,
my /lib/systemd/system is very customized. This box runs kernel 4.19 with
Linux Lite 4.0

Is it safe to upgrade to LL 4.2 with this kind of configuration?

----

Sorry, I think the answer is that people who mess up their own LL systems like me, have to live with the results :)

Gz bro! Same here, just finished installation and made the updates. No problems at all, as usual with LL.

I have one issue though, which is not related to Linux Lite but the Linux wireless subsystem.
If you are not from the United States of America, please check what the command "iw reg get" says.
For me it always says either:
Code: [Select]
country 00 or
Code: [Select]
country US which are wrong, since I'm in Europe and
some of you are from other regions. Country 00 is always wrong.

One might think this is not an issue since the wireless network works fine. However, if we are accurate, it is a
legal issue, since every country has it's own legal radio frequencies which are available for civilians.
As I said, this is not an issue with Linux Lite, it is an issue with the Linux kernel, or better yet - the lack of it at
the moment.

I am not going into the details of this thing, since it is very simple to fix. You only need to know the abbreviation
of your country: For example, if you live in France, the abbreviation is 'FR'. It is usually just two letters.
So, assuming that you live in France, you would do the following to fix the regulatory domain:

Code: [Select]
sudo iw reg set FR
And you may then verify that the radio frequencies are correct for domain 'France' by commanding:

Code: [Select]
iw reg get
which should now begin with FR instead of '00' or 'US'


If I may help, please ask in this topic since I seem to be blocked in other areas here

Cheers!

I still cannot update LL. It insists that I am up to date with version 3.8. I am using v 4.0 which I installed from the final version, not the beta one. I was getting some replies about this, but they have now disappeared. Although I have used computers for many years, and Linux exclusively since 1999, I still find this forum the most difficult one to use that I have ever seen. I have tried everything that I can think of, but to no avail. I think now that I have two options. I can stay with version 4.0 until version 5.0 arrives. Or I can look elsewhere for a different distro. I don't want to go for the latter since I think that LL is the best distro that I have ever used. Please, can anyone come up with any suggestions? By the way, I am stuck with lite-upgrade-series3 and I do not know how to install series 4.

Replying to my own post. I have tried running head /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxlite.list. The result I get is deb http://repo.linuxliteos.com/linuxlite/ citrine main

I am wondering if citrine is wrong and should be diamond. Is that correct?
