The first day downloaders are advised to install two packages
« Reply #16 on: October 26, 2019, 07:18:34 am »
The first release of sparkylinux-201910-x86_64-cinnamon-remix.iso was found to have two packages less than what it it should. The 17 users who downloaded the iso at the 25 of October 2019 are advised to simply execute: sudo apt install gnome-system-monitor sparky-aptus-upgrade-checker. They do not need to reinstall using the corrected iso. The sparkylinux-2019.10-x86_64-cinnamon-remix.iso that is hosted at sourceforge has already been replaced by the corrected iso. I sincerely apologize for this fault.
