Re: Download Problems

I had trouble downloading Buster even a week after it was released. Kept aborting after a few MB.
I then tried torrent DL and that worked first time.

I believe the first update/upgrade is now close to 200MB.

Re: Terminal Shortcut CTRL-ALT-T Stopped Working

I found that using obconf to set multiple desktops will cause ALL desktop shortcuts to stop working in addition to [CTRL] [Alt] t.
[CTRL] [Alt] [F2]
[Windows logo key] or [CTRL] [Esc]
etc

I believe this also happened in Stretch as well.
I have not found a way to fix that other than a reinstall OS.
