Sadly my Ubuntu install was borked after attempting to upgrade to 17. After this experience I thought it best to look at other options. I previously had used Arch, Fedora, and others. I gave Linux Mint a chance a while, back and once again it was time to give it a whirl. Using a USB drive I booted my old install and grabbed what files I could and copied them to an external drive. After repartitioning it was time install. It worked fairly well and then it was time to load back up a few key applications:
After installing curl GitKraken started working. Spotify, and VS Code worked without tweaking. PcGen didn't run from the .sh file but looking at the last line and executing it worked. I had to install pip for Python 3 and update it to get the old blog engine working.
