i recently installed ubuntu but i have basically no experience with it or linux.i need a swap file and it didn't give me the option for that during installation. i have tried googling it but i have trouble following the commands because i am so unfamiliar with the terminal. i managed to make one but i couldn't make it's priority stay very low where i want it to. ( i have 4 gb of ram so i want it to have a very very low priority) can anyone tell me exactly what to type?

Try following this Swap Partition FAQ (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq#head-75ffcb00cefe143fc380f84d7ea9203f16a596d0) on how to create a swap partition.
