    I just installed the latest version of Juno on my new Dell XPS 15 this morning. Desktop looks great. Kudos to the developers! Some feedback and one problem:

    - I initially ran into a problem whereby the Juno installer crashed during the partitioning stage. I had to reboot. disable Secure boot & switch to SATA in BIOS to fix

    - Other than the above, the install process was smooth.

    - I installed Thunderbird mail client from the AppCenter. It installed fine, but much to my dismay the keyboard up, down arrow shortcuts dont work.

    - I downloaded Skype, clicked on the deb package and was expecting Elementor to install Skype, but alas, the file association led to nowhere. I read some stuff on the Internet about having to install Eddie. This worked, but, I think for basic users, it can be a problem. Question: shouldn't it be possible to click on deb files to install programs out of the box?

    - I looked for Intellij in the AppCenter, but it was nowhere to be found. Then downloaded it from the website. Opened a terminal to run Intellij. However, found the terminal to be difficult to use since the space bar only works with Caps Lock On inside the terminal. Space Bar works fine outside of the terminal app. Any ideas on how to resolve?
