Just thought I'd say hello. (Couldn't find a "Front Door" forum anywhere, so I hope I've not offended anyone by putting this here.)

I've had Ubuntu for a little over a month, after XP starting to chew up my computer. I've finally (I think) started to get the hang of it, and am quite grateful that it seems to have given my laptop a new life. (Still hoping to buy an iMac at some point since I do a lot of video and audio editing - I hope I won't be shot for saying that. :-P )

I've got a few questions (DVDs anyone???) but I'll search the forums first to save asking you questions you'll have heard a million times.

open the add/remove under the applications menu, go to the tab marked "other" scoll all the way down and enable ubuntu restricted extras ;-)

Greetings. :-)

You haven't made many posts, so it must be going pretty smoothly. Check out my multimedia and more how-to (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=661833). Hope it helps.

Try Kino, Cinelerra and Audacity. I'm sure there are others I don't know about, but these are a good start.
