My screen is loading up unreadable on a  HP laptop. I loaded Lite three times to be sure.
I tried to post here with a picture but that will not work, if anyone wants a picture please email me.
I am also getting the wrong characters when I use shift plus a number.

if you have a youtube account, then take your smart phone, use the camera thats on it , record from start to finish of your HP laptop, sometimes watching something in video gives more of a idea of what might be going on, thats what i did , on my Asus desktop 64bit PC, it would show a funny mixed image while booting up, also shows it when i restart it, after it finished it was fine, but does this every time , so i decided to do another fresh install of Linux lite 5.0, but before i did that..... i disabled secure boot , (dont do this) the results were the same, a few days later , i re-enabled(turned back on) secure boot, it still was the same, ha ha , just me messing around on my pc, it never did this on Linux lite 3 or 4 series , so maybe when the next update for example linux lite 5.2(or what ever) it will get fixed. it happens,

Is it possible to have the battery percentage below firewall in the widget?

I'll consider adding that in the future, no promises though. It's easy to just add more and more to that Widget but there needs to be a limit.

Anyway for the user to add such stuff if s/he prefers to? Thanks in adavance

Sorry to see that Cherry Tree won't work with it. I have TONS of chapters of notes in Cherry Tree. But if it won't work, it won't work.

I installed Zim and will give it a try. The advantage to Cherry Tree is that it runs on Windows and also Mac (I have those OS, too), so the data can be swapped from machine to machine easily by just copying the CherryTree data file.

[Later] Looks like Zim will run on Windows and Mac, though I imagine my old Mac's OS is not supported. Biggest hangup for me with Zim is that the colors (font, background, etc) are not user-changeable, and it boots up with defaults that are hard to read on my customized LL system.

Hi, again! :)   
Glad you found something that works!

I installed Zim and will give it a try.

I took a look into this piece of software.
Sounds interesting.
The idea that crossed my mind is IF it exports in .xml, maybe all your work might be portable.
I took a quick look at Cherry Tree.
It's quite very advanced so, I guess even if you open an .xml, some formatting will get lost due to the lack of support in the Zim core app.

Since I'm the visual kind of student, Cherry Tree looks to me more convincing that the Slackware aproach found in Zim...
On the other hand, making a dual boot machine for the sole purpose of having Cherry Tree...
Maybe if you make a heavy use of this, a better solution would be to get back to LL 4.8, until Cherry Tree gets ready for the Ubuntu 20.04 version.
This often happens, I'm also waiting for the FSLint to release a suitable version for Ub 20.04...

[...] [Later] Looks like Zim will run on Windows and Mac, though I imagine my old Mac's OS is not supported. Biggest hangup for me with Zim is that the colors (font, background, etc) are not user-changeable, and it boots up with defaults that are hard to read on my customized LL system.

https://zim-wiki.org/manual/Help/Export.html

Now, comparing the two, I guess it's too much of a trouble to use Zim.
It's easier to revert to Lite 4.8, then move back to LL 5.0 when Cherry Tree gets ready for 20.04.
As far as I could figure by now, too many compatibility problems between the two.
I would also opt for Cherry Tree instead of anything else.
The more I read about, the less I can figure out how to replace it... Way too complex and... "All-In-One"...
It's more of an Archive management tool than "Note taking".
Plus... runs on whatever OS?! I'd have a hard time myself to give it up!

Best thoughts! :)

Yes, i decided to just stick with 4.8, since it works for me. Maybe Cherry Tree will address this; seems like the dev would be under some pressure (even if only internally) to do this.

Zim isn't bad at all, but the lack of user-control over colors is a real problem on my system. I suspect that won't bother people who have not changed the way LL looks.
