"rc.local" doesn't run by default anymore, so:

Which in turn may be useful or necessary to have /var/cache/apt/archives as a tmpfs, with this:

mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/partial 
mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives 
mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial 

chown -R _apt /var/cache/apt

QDirstat can have Dolphin as file manager, but not with the "&" after the command line

No need for Nvidia’s proprietary graphics drivers when running this new version...
