Are these two tools only available for antiX-17? or can I install these tools on my antiX-16.3 system?

you might be(come) the first person to test whether they are backward compatible.
Skimming through those scripts, I didn’t find anything that seemed NOT backward-compatible…
If you care to test, I guess the installation would require enabling antiX stretch repo in your sources list
and install “console-grid-gui” which provides antiX-cli-cc
(also depends on “cli-shell-utils”, so that will be autoinstalled also)
and “cli-aptix” (packagename is lowercase)
When you initiate the “sudo apt-get install console-grid-gui cli-aptix” operation, if apt reports that additional packages (other than “cli-shell-utils”) must be installed/upgraded… I would stop (cancel).
After installing those select packages, remember to disable the stretch repo within your sources list.April 27, 2019 at 11:28 am #20774Memberseaken64
Ok, thanks. I’ll do that and report back how it works, or not.

I installed both antiX-cli-cc and cli-aptiX on my antiX-16.3 box. I used following command:
“sudo apt-get install console-grid-gui cli-aptix”
apt did not stop and ask me to say yes or no. It just installed. But it seemed that it was only the packages you mentioned and nothing else.
I tested antiX-cli-cc and it starts up and the menu comes on screen. But I can only go one menu deep and nothing actually launches. And I can only use “q” to quit. I cannot use <Enter> or <b> to go back to main menu. “q” quits to the command line. So, it appears that antiX-cli-cc does not work.
However, cli-aptiX seems to work just fine. I updated and upgraded and did some searches. I have not tried to install a package yet.

Here’s the only additional wrinkle I can think of:
package “cli-shell-utils” is a dependency of antiX-cli-cc
the dependency declaration(s) are unversioned
You mentioned “did not stop and ask me to say yes or no. It just installed”
which suggests that cli-shell-utils is already installed.
Use “apt policy antiX-cli-cc” to check the installed version of cli-shell-utils.
If it’s not v0.3.16, you can temporarily enable in your apt sources.list
and retrieve the newer version, then retest.
