September 21st, 2008, 03:42 PM
Hi! I'm trying to get started on ubuntu but am not quite sure how to do this. I bought a new net-camera and now want to use it also on ubuntu. but i do not know how to install anything from a cd or from somewhere else. i read something about a terminal but i can't figure out how to work with it. Maybe somebody here can help me or tell me a good page where to look?!

Thanks for any comment!

To install programs Click the top panel System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager-you can search there as well. For more info on ubuntu use the Ubuntu wiki see my signature. Welcome!

www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/installingsoftware should prove a worthy read.
