Menu > Other > LX Terminal

Enter the command:

sudo apt-get install geany

Confirm the install and it will be added to the ‘Menu > Programming’ folder

    Ok, so this is awesome but? It says I have the newest install which is untrue. I have 1.33 and 1.37 is what I want to install. Is there a command line switch with sudo apt to get that version?

    What am I missing, what do I need to do to update to the latest/greatest? Additionally, to be in the “know”, lol, why does apt say I have the latest when that clearly isn’t the case?

    Any inf, will be greatly appreciated…
