up way too late here.   Did mint 18 kcd5 install, wiped out after seeing 
how bad kde5 is, now doing mint 17.3 kde 4 install.  Interesting note: 
the ubuntu ppa ham updates on mint 18 showed aprx in the package 
manager.  I added same ppa to this mint and aprx doesn't show up . . . 
its always a bugger.

anyway, VERY HAPPY about this post!  I am very much looking forward to 
getting aprx back on my ham shack computer and shutting down xastir!
