So I just installed a fresh new system with Ubuntu 20.04.
After applying all the updates I opened the Ubuntu Software-store to see that I had a whole bunch of software already installed in the form of snap-packages.
Most of them comes from the source: ubuntu-focal-main, GNOME developers etc. However some packages like the "Print Settings" shows up as Source Unknown. What does this mean?
I'm really hesitant to install packages from the Snap store for security reasons (since to my knowledge it's not really controlled and/or checked for malware, bitcoin miners, etc?).
I prefer to use apt-get and to download .deb packages from known sources.
So, I guess my question is: is it safe? Maybe I'm using the wrong distro if I want to stay away from Snap packages, but a clean installation of Ubuntu with default snap packages should be safe, right? Am I overly paranoid about this stuff?
