    network and terminal

    total newb here. 2 questions.

    First: Installed 12.04LTS from CDROM. Its installed as dual-boot with WXP. WXP network works fine. Ubuntu says network is disconnected. Yes, its "enabled". I have enabled and disabled and unplugged/plugged the NW cable etc.

    Second - how the heck do you open a terminal window or get to command prompt? Searching in help only tells about altF2 which apparently wont give you the text response to the command entered. I tried to run ifconfig and could get nowhere.

    TIA...

    Re: network and terminal

    What network card do you have? Possibly a driver issue.

    To open a terminal, press Ctrl+Alt+T, or press the dash button (Ubuntu logo, top left) and search for "terminal".

    Have fun with that terminal, I think you'll find it's a little better than the default windows one.

    Yeah, I would, but the box cant access the NW. I had to paste it into a new document on a USB stick and then carry that to a working windows box to post it. Apparently the default text editor in Ubuntu removed all the carriage returns. Lesson learned, I will attempt to edit the txt to make it look right.

    Re: network and terminal

    sandyd looks up from tv

    To indicate a newline in text files, a newline indicator is used.

    They are different in windows & linux.

    Linux: '\n'
    Windows: '\r\n'
    I don't remember the ones for Mac.

    sandyd fixes text, and goes back to watching TV.
