Installed 18.12 Pre Release 2 successfully on an HP 15 Laptop.
The reason I could never get past page 2 of the installs before was found - it was not seeing my language choice (American English) so I clicked on “Previous” and selected “American English” again just to see if that was keeping me from seeing the “Next” button activate. It was, because after I selected British English, the “Next” button activated andI could proceed to the next page and the rest of the installation.
OK, so it installed OK, but when I went to type "terminal"in the application list (Lower left corner of the screen) there’s NO terminal !! No xterm. How the hell do you start terminal to type in some commands ??? !!!
I did see a “terminal” selection when I right click on the desktop but that did nothing except ask me if I wanted to use xterm to open up some editing program.
I selected “bash” as my shell when installed, if it helps any to know that.
