Update and Upgrade LB

I am getting an OMTech 60w machine this week, so I need to upgrade my software. My problem is my subscription expires in just over a month. Should I extend my subscription early then upgrade my software? I want to have another year of update access.

Renew before the license expires…

“If you renew before your license expires, we’ll add an extra two months.”


A little concerned here. I have just purchased a licence but I am running Manjaro and the check for updates doesnt work so my licence is already effectively frozen in time. I have another pc I am going to use in my workshop to actually run whatever laser I eventually purchase but am now concerned which version of linux to install on it. Is there a known L:inux distro in which the software update checker works.?

As far as I understand Linux is only officially supported on Ubuntu 16 and Fedora 28, quite old releases. I don’t know if the update checker works on those releases but I’d assume they do.

There’s nothing preventing you from simply downloading and installing the latest version even without the checker, however.
