Okay thanks. I will take a look at Lubuntu and see if I can run all the
current packages that I need on it. It may well be suitable, given the
fact that this desktop is 9 years old and short of RAM and even disk
space now. It's nice to be using Claws now, all up and going. It sure
is lightweight; it's not even using 100K of memory at present.  lol
