I've just switched from Ubuntu to Lubuntu and I have installed Firestarter.
Is this advised? The reason I ask is because a whole load of Gnome related packages were also installed alongside Firestarter. As I understand it, Gnome is not part of Lubuntu. Should I be avoinding anything which requires Gnome-based packages now that I am on Lubuntu? Is there a better firewall to use with Lubuntu
Finally, after a clean install of Lubuntu, I had to go online to get Firestarter. Does this mean that my system was without protection during this period? Could someone have haxored me during this time?
