    Commands not working in Ubuntu 12.10 LTS

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 LTS on a Dedicated HD, so that I could Test and upgrade my Joomla 1.7 Website for the "ratsoftobrukvictoria.org.au". System is Win 7 64bit. I then installed LAMP as a one click operation. I have returned to Ubuntu after about two weeks recovering from a Hack and Deface of my Joomla Site.
    I have copied and pasted many command lines into the Terminal, some with sudo and some without, none of which work and I receive this Message: "Sorry there is nothing that matches your search".

    Can anyone tell me what this is all about and what can I do about.

    I am completely new at Linux.

    If someone can provide me with a step by step instruction on how to set up and import my Joomla 1.7 into this Server, as an 80 year old Learner, I would appreciate it very much.

    Thank You.

    Hello and welcome to the forums

    It sounds like you are typing the commands into the Ubuntu dashboard search box instead of a terminal

    To open a terminal, you can use the Ctrl-Alt-t keyboard combo - or type 'terminal' in the dashboard search box

    I hope you are able now to run commands on 'Terminal' not the 'Search box' on Dash

    If this issue is solved, kindly mark this thread as 'Solved'.

    Thank you and enjoy Ubuntu
