Using Muon Discover, updated Kubuntu 14.04 to 16.04
Installed XFCE on Kubuntu.
"Network" in "System" doesn't work
Have been using Ethernet at a library, have wasted time researching.
Finally installed Wicd Network Manager which seems to work.
Why make it so difficult, I see something similar has happened with LXDE.
Also with Fonts.
Had to search around to get fonts bigger than miniscule.
Hello and welcome.
Xfce doesn't include any network managers. Most distros include one as part of their over-all experience. You've found one, wcid. Another common one is NetworkManager. I'm not sure what ' "Network" in "System" ' is or means. Perhaps its a KDE/Plasma app/utility? Not including an Xfce-specific network manager is not making it difficult, there just isn't a need to re-invent the wheel if quite capable Network Managers already exist.
Xfce font configuration options can be found at Settings Manager > Appearance > Fonts (for GTK font settings) and Settings Manager > Window Manager > Style (for the window manager).
