Hi - I am a newbie to Linux. I spent some time getting somewhat familiar with Ubuntu last week and installed it on a friends laptop for them. Today I became aware of Linux Lite and because it seems to be more user friendly I am leaning towards replacing Ubuntu with Lite in order to better accommodate my friend who is not computer savvy. .......... Anyway, I learned on Ubuntu that the firewall has to be manually turned on. My question is what is the status with the firewall in Linux Lite? I have not been able to find it and I am wondering if it has to be activated by the user. If so, how do I do that?
Any help would be appreciated.
