How to use usm guy?

Post#1 by morice69 » 09 Nov 2016, 19:12

Hi, I would like to use usm guy
I launched usm, and reboot
updated it, and updated every repo and I try to search an archive manager to install it.
Without success

So I try to install by guy the abiword: it fail because no word match.
In fact I cannot find other package than this

However usm is realy updated because

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -v
 You are using USM version:  3.1.9
and

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -g abiword

 The following items were found.
 Choose an number to confirm. 
 ctrl+c to quit

1) abiword-3.0.0-x86_64-1rl.txz	     3) abiword-3.0.1-x86_64-1_slack.txz
2) abiword-3.0.0-x86_64-1sl.txz	     4) abiword-3.0.1-x86_64-1ponce.txz
