I got ubuntu on about a week ago. How do you open the programs? when I click on an installed program, a box comes up to go to the web to install it. I need to know how to use a program. I did get youtube to work after going to flash aid. thats about the only thing I got right. Thanks

What programs are you trying to use?

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

Assuming you use the default Unity...

Either click something on that panel on the left side or click the Ubuntu logo in the top left corner and look there.

It might mix applications that are on your computer already and that haven't been installed yet but you'd see which is which pretty soon. If you really want a particular one and it offers an install, you can simply install it.

From your previous post I take it you are using Ubuntu 11.04. Now, depending on your hardware and how you actually chose to log in you may be presented with two very different desktop environments:
