Re: Ride-on mower battery...

Also a hint after you get your new Battery. Disconnect it if it's going to sit for a week or more. On my old Sears Rider something kept draining the Battery even when it was off. Also good Idea when you put the machine away for the season to disconnect it. Good luck.

Re: Why so few webrowsers? Any other recommended repos?

you can download opera from their web page. https://www.opera.com then install it via gdebi, it will add a repository to your apt list to keep it up to date if you tell it to during install.
