Basically, I do not know anything about Linux, I offered from my classmate that I should use Linux.

Since I am beginner, my friend suggested me to use ubuntu.

I use last.fm. :)

I try to install it, so I downloaded from the website.

And open it, then extracted then what?

I went here: http://simonsay.wordpress.com/2006/11/05/making-lastfm-run-in-ubuntu-linux/

Then,
I tried to follow it.

But I do not where to copy or move the folders.

mkdir? It says I don't have access to it.

I am so frustrated. T_T

Can anybody help this n00b?

Doesn't rythmbox have a last.fm plugin?
You could try with rythmbox.

Also windows files (like .exe's) don't natively work on linux.
Unless you downloaded a linux file to install it won't work.
If you tell us which file you downloaded from where, maybe we can help you.

Hey, welcome to the Forums! We're here to help in any way we can. Just a tip, when you try to mkdir in the location the site said, do this:


sudo mkdir followed by the path you want to make the directory to.

hope that'll help:D

If I use rhythum box, it automatically installs last.fm scrobbler? :s

Ijust checked and rhythmbox does have a last.fm plugin.
Just open rhythmbox,select edit and then plugins. Check the lastfm option and press configure.
From then you're on your own. I don't use last.fm so I don't know what you are supposed to do next.

If you want you can also install Last.fm easily. Just use Add/Remove (Applications -> Add/Remove). Search for it and install it.

There you will find a great collection of software to install with just one click. And that's the way you install apps in Ubuntu, using Add/Remove.

Or for installing more specific apps, not only the mainstream ones, you can use Synaptic (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager).
