Upgrading to ultimate

:grinning

How do you install the ultimate edition once the OS is up and working.
I have tried sudo pacman -S ultimate without success.
Other versions are installed and I would like to try the ultimate version, however, due to its size I cannot burn it to a normal dvd.

Install on lite the >extra packages from the list

Improved Feature List?

Thank you. I am an intermediate when it comes to linux. Not a programmer at all. I am slightly confused regarding how to install the ultimate version in its entirety. Is there a simple command?

The Ultimate edition simply has a larger selection of pre-installed packages, as identified by >extra in the above list. You can install all of them, some of them, or none of them and add applications only as you need them.

Thank you. I take it that you just type extra and then the program. Is that correct?

Thank you once again. This is by far the best in my opinion, of all of the operating systems I have tried. Works and looks good straight away. Congratulations.

I am also having a issue with upgrade to ultimate on dr46onized version it asks me which apps I want to install but didn't install anything. Plzz help

Someone reported this as well a few days back but didnt actually give information on error messages / selections in the assistant / circumstances.
Is this happening when Alacritty opens to install packages after selecting?

1 Like

I have the feeling this user may not even know what alacritty is. @Lakshya_rao if you don't know it's the terminal program used to run the commands in.

Welcome to the forum BTW.

I know what it is :grin: It didn't help me get anything installed, though. Had to drop back to my scripts for Arch installs. I chose things like libreoffice fresh, and inkscape, and kolourpaint, and gimp, and no asian font support. Can't remember them all, but I thought it was pretty good selection - if it had worked! basically, the term showed up, asked for authorization, and disappeared with no result. No further entries were chosen as 'none'. Very strange, I thought...

Initially it was giving error about snap then I installed snap and tried again then it was something like added to symlink.

There is probably a typo in one of the package lists which makes pacman fail. Ill try to track it down later. :thinking:

Excellent - I was sure it was a minor issue - do you need a likely package list of choices? (I could step through it again to see what I probably did.

Yad is nifty - but it doesn't error-check!

The application enables systemd services after installing the corresponding applications which gives "created symlink X" if successful.

I am in advanced conky meltdown mode right now - so it could be a while at least! (propagating multiple files across multiple distros can take time!)

Here's a list of choices I made - if that might help - I went with a (simplistic) script I use on Arch builds to fill in the holes..

List of choices

NO to mirrors
NO to update
YES to upgrade to Ultimate
No to Asian fonts
LibreOffice Fresh select
Firefox, Brave checked
First 4 (nextCloud, BitWarden XDMx2) + FileZilla
Telegram, Discord
Thunderbird
Audacious, Audacity
SMPlayer
GIMP. KolourPaint, Inkscape, ImageMagick
Kid3, SoundKonverster, (no conky 'cos I build my own with lua, audacious no nVidia)
VSCode
Virt-Manager

If I can get my head cleared I'll take a look - probably a typo somewhere on one of the packages that the writer doesn't have (at a guess) - so the writer will know best from my list which is unusual for them, and a possible trigger :grin:
