View Full Version : [ubuntu] need help with adobe

August 27th, 2009, 04:42 AM
I just downloaded ubuntu today. I'm loving it, fooling around with it a bit but since i'm new to the linux GUI i dont understand all of this completely. I wanted to watch a video on youtube but i can't figure out how to install adobe.. And also how to get googleearth..

Also check your graphics driver is enabled:
System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

And, Welcome to Ubuntu!
