FS#703 - Newbie questions ( forum do not accept those questions)

Sorry Elive forum tool does not allow me to post that and does not specify which words are not accepted....

In Ubuntu distros I am used to have a software that notify us of updates for the OS, kernel or the Apps I installed. How is it handled is Debian / Elive ? Do we need to keep our apps updated ourselves ? What about Kernel / ELive update ?

- New Kernel version :
is it better for us to not install more recent kernel versions available for Debian manually if there is one, should we wait that Elive team give us a go ?

- Installation manually of more recent version of software :
Is it ok if we install manually more recent versions of apps like libreOffice ? VirtualBox and so son...

are you ok with us using Snap or Flathub to install apps ? any comments are welcome.. for new users to linux, flat and snap are cool... But I don’t know all the cons...

ONe last question for today as I am doing final test in a VM

in Ubuntu, I could install language pack
I could leave Ubuntu in english, but have Livre Office 6.x in French ( for my wife)

I manualy install from the .deb files Libre Office 6.x ( seems the old version is still there too, but I don't care). I can't swtich LibreOffice to French as I did in Ubuntu and for me this is important

Only english (my default OS language that I want to keep in english) is avaliable in LIbreOffice (for the interface... not only the dictionnary)

TKs !
