[EN] Advice to convert MOW to Shoulders of Giants

I should like to freshen my always kept updated Master of War version to Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.
What is the proper way to change the artwork & other tweaks rolled in with the newer release?
Please advise.
Thank you!

If you do a nala search or apt search giants you should find all the artwork and settings. Other than that if you have been full-upgrading you should be good.

I will do as you aver.
I've never used nala only apt, apt-get, or aptitude, always full-upgrade (unless just adding a package or so between upgrades) . Perhaps time to check out using nala.

Nala is doing the same things as apt but has a couple extra feature I like. Multi download and the history function mostly.

I think nala is crap. Apart from the fact that it looks colorful, it can't do anything that apt can do anyway.   :)

Not true. A couple things that come to mind that nala can do is simultaneous downloads from multiple repos and the undo feature of nala history.

@eriefisher
It remains the same, nala is crap!    ;)


@hickamoungthesticks
Take the new ISO (kde/plasma is up to date, the others will take some time.). You'll save yourself a lot of trouble, and, with apt you're right, the recommended way with siduction.    8)
