Jade Desktop

I have just installed Sparky and fancied the Jade Desktop.  However,  using Xterm I input :
sudo apt install sparky-desktop-jade
E: Unable to locate package sparky-desktop-jade

Similarly I get the same message for:
sudo apt install jadesktop    and also  gufa

Could someone tell me what if anything I am doing wrong Please.


You might not be doing anything wrong.

Looking at     we can see that it is in active development - the announcement for Sparky was about 50 weeks ago. 

  As root "apt -s install sparky-desktop-jade" fails as does "apt -s install jadedesktop"

E: unable to locate package. 

"aptitude search jade"  yields no results that are relevant. 

I myself if I was interested would try it out in a virtual machine first.  For this specific example the Manjaro version would probably be my first try.  If you are newer to linux, to be working on a more cutting edge distro (although it is set up to make being on a rolling distro as easy as possible) and to be using a "geeky"  niche and minimal Desktop environment is having to learn two different tasks at the same time. 

Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


Hi paxmark1,

Thank you for the reply and advice.
When I have set up Sparky a little more I will install vb and try Manjaro.
I'm not  a geek with oodles of Linux knowledge but I have been using Linux for sometime now.
