Thank you...always nice to know the origins. Main thing is, it seems to
work without annoyances.

At the moment, under Mint, because it was the only OS variant that would
install correctly on this laptop (Dell XPS 15). But Enlightenment and
Terminology are installed from additional repos from niko2040 because
the main once are seriously out of date.

That's good. I moved to Enlightenment quite a few years ago so I haven't
checked back to see what others offer. Perhaps it's because E has it as
the default, but on others it's a switchable option.
