Re: Installing Lubuntu Questions
To your first question, most commands you do and the way you install stuff will be the same. Like to turn on your firewall.
Easy peasy. So for installing the things you want, it will be the same too. "apt-get, synaptic, software center."
sudo ufw default deny
As far as what was recommended by the first reply, that is an easy way to keep your stuff without having to do a reinstall, but it can take a bit of data up and give you doubles of certain things. Remember, UbuntuOne is a great way to back up stuff also, incase you ever did want to do a fresh install.
The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
