View Full Version : [ubuntu] Main Terminal Issue

January 30th, 2010, 05:34 PM
Could someone tell me the difference of opening a main terminal compared to opening a terminal within ubunto from the drop down?

I had to install some drivers and it recommended doing it from hitting cntrl+alt+F1 but it doesn't work for me :( . It just messes up my screen with an acid trip.. Is there perhaps another way? or is it really needed?

I'm not having any noticeable problems with my current set-up, internet, printer, graphics, all seem to be working flawlessly as far as I can tell. Manually installed nvidea driver 190 from start-up and it works great.

New to anything with Linux and just trying to learn and have fun with it and see what cool stuff i can do or learn from it :)
