I think we're covered. > The reference to installoptionalpackage is simply: You'll have to run a command in Terminal: installoptionalpackage -h explains its usage. This has never worked for me. I end up finding an old link to the optional packages af http://haiku-files.org/files/optional-packages/ and downloading and installing the packages manually. it may be just me, but the installoptionalpackages has never worked as expected. might be that the help documentation is not enough.
