I was surprised upon upgrading from Linux Mint 18.3 to 19 that apps I had installed via the Software Manager were no longer available--I had thought that was one of the advantages of upgrading in-place.
Anyway, I went to reinstall some of these, and in most cases, that was no big deal. However, when it came to Peek (the animated GIF capture tool) this is what I got:
So...what happened to Gnome, that it needs to reinstall that? I don't even have enough space left for something like that. I thought MATE was based on GNOME, and on the main Mint login screen I have the option of a MATE or Xfce desktop--and they both work--so wouldn't that imply that GNOME is still available?
If so, why should I need to install another 2.1 GB of software to use one tiny, lightweight tool that worked fine under MATE in Mint 18.3? If not, can you explain what I'm missing?
