Network manager, mouse function & xfce desktop files are removed after software update.
can I get the uberstudent netwok-manager deb file for offline installation please?
As you mention removals from XFCE, check for the possibility that you still have network-manager installed but that what disappeared is just the nm-applet icon from the xfce4-indicator-plugin; you can use the dpkg
command to check for such...
damion@uberstudent:~$ dpkg --status network-manager | grep Status
Status: install ok installed
