I'm beginning to think I'm just never going to understand
linux. 5 months and I'm still confused. I've downloaded 10 zip files to unbuntu 10.10. which I'm trying to figure out how to open. Seems if you look 10 places online for linux instructions you find 10 different answers! 5 months and I still can't update Java but that's a different day!
SO...... I looked for info and saw I'm supposed to install zip and unzip thru the terminal. I tried that and it's already installed. I've just updated to 10.10 if that matters.
-Looked for directions as to how to open the files and found:
-double click file
- click extract
-choose folder to unzip files into
-window will popup w/ progress bar
OK so all that went as it should have. It said something like extraction successful at that point. The instructions said I'd then see a button which would take me to extraction folder. That wasn't an option offered. So now I don't have any idea what I'm supposed to do next. I've tried several things and just end up feeling like a dog chasing it's tail. I'd really appreciate any suggestions. Giving up isn't really an option. Thanks in advance!
