Xfce software

I had a friend put Xfce on my Lenovo laptop and I’ve found it has both Discover and Octopi installed.

Has the distro been updated and had these programs added, or has my friend added them?

Thanks for the reply. Octopi isn’t on he list either. I also found Pamac, and that too isn’t on the list.

If that’s true - you may want to consult your sysadmin friend.

PS. - Nice computer. <3 Thinkpad t480 - she’s a good one.

I bought it because I saw a mountain of YouTube videos praising it.

They weren’t lying.

It strikes me it’s the best value laptop available.

Without getting too far off your topic - I typed this from my T480s. I also love mine immensely, I’ve had it for years and it feels like I could use it for many more. It’s a fantastic linux laptop too. I can’t ever remember an issue with it. :hugs:

Good luck on your plethora of update/upgrade options you seem to have installed.

I am actually going to do a clean install to get rid of unnecessary junk and then configure things as I require. Hopefully things will then work as I want them to and the laptop will last as long as yours has.

Probably they checked a few boxes in the Setup Assistant post-install.
