Flashlight/Torch

Why is it that all the other distributions have figured out how to use the Torch icon in the drop-down but Mobian still uses a stand-alone Flashlight app?

The torch icon moved to the drop-down quite some time ago. Are you using a pre Bookworm version of Mobian?

It works just fine on Bookworm.

The installer I downloaded was from here. Is there a more up-to-date installer? I also tried this and there's nothing:

Code:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt dist-upgrade

[edit] Never mind. I found some information about upgrading on the Mobian blog.

It should be more clear, that's for sure. I honestly didn't even know there was a mobian blog until someone referred me to it a few weeks after they upgraded to Bookworm. Before then I had spent a few weeks without any updates and was super confused.

The installer should be updated to install the latest. Anyway, it's all sorted now.

I think the reason they haven't is just because Bookworm is much more unstable than Bullseye so they want to give it a couple months for everything to settle down beforehand. Glad that you now have your flashlight working though!
