Figured out how to get FF up and running, I think. But now I'm trying to figure out why when I click on a folder it fails to open.
Something tells me this is not going to end at all well.

Don't take any notice of that pair, Uvah, with a bit of persistence you'll pick it up soon enough.
On the Ubuntu home page there is a fairly comprehensive Q&A section, or forums for answers to less common problems.
I'm still using 11.10 I think. Is that natty warhal?
That would be Oneiric Ocelot ...
I would go onto the ubuntu site, Uvah, they are a friendly community. They have a lot information and help for new users.
Q: Why Ubuntu
A: It´s Soo userfriendly
Just Kidding Uvah.
It´s probably an insanly good idea to use that OS when skinning for Windows.
Uvah! You just aren't happy without computer drama in your life?
Ubuntu sucks. Why would you torment yourself? Operating systems are supposed to make life easier not stressful. Sure a wimpy computer may need help to run better, and its called a processor and ram upgrade!. Sorry , but all that is required to use ub seems like a step back to dos. My opinion , but still wish you luck with it. How about windows 98, It runs fast!LOL
There are times when I do know what I'm doing, not very often but it does happen. I want to learn Ubuntu is all. If I don't have my hands on I ain't learnin' shit. So...that said.
Thanks for your support.
AHEM!! whats all this about ubuntu....shouldnt you be baking?? hahha
Uh oh......I are so dead.
yes......... and yes!
you wanted to be cremated, didnt you?
I installed MacPup 528 on a very old Dell laptop (only 256mb RAM) and it runs great. The hardest thing for me (should not be an issue with ubuntu) was getting the wireless USB adapter to work. Take it all in small steps. A few things I installed required a reinstall of the OS but MacPup installs very quickly.
Firefox and Flash have been my biggest issues. Opera runs great on it. I managed to get Rainlendar installed as well as Dropbox. Check out Portable Linux Apps for a bunch of stuff. I found portable versions of apps that wouldn't install or run correctly otherwise.
DA has some nice 'skins' for Ubuntu as well, when you start customizing everything.
Thanks Po. Using Ubuntu now. No problem getting online.
install Rainlendar, Docky and Conky for a start.
do you think Roscoe would have taken your computer if it had ub on it!Might be good anti theft anyway!
Upgrading as we type.....
The desktop is pretty cool I think. I like the search window that opens up when you hit the top button, nice degree of transparency to it. I also tried the Ubuntu software thingy, looking for Wine. I got as far as the wine homepage and that's where I got lost. lol
You should be able to find it in the package manager. Make sure you update the packages.
Hey Po !!
I had to install the package manager. It lists some 38 thousand packages, 1000 of which are installed. I have no idea what I'm lookin' at.
