View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] New Install

December 23rd, 2008, 07:32 PM
I have just finished installing Ibex on a Dell 1525 laptop and have run all the updates.

Is there a tutorial on what to download or install to make this as close as to xp without the crashes and BSD :) I have seen some where they say 7 things you should do after a fresh install. Was wondering if you could recommend the best site to follow.

This is for a friend and I want to make it as friendly and as simple as possible for her.

TO install programs, stick with the repositories, Go to Applications-->Add/Remove Applications and click the Show drop down and select All Availabe Programs or System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package Manager. Betwwen those two apps you shouldn't have to go anywhere else.
