Re: How do you install a program in Ubuntu?
It gave one error message/warning which I'm not sure relates to, but that error/warning did not stop the installation. So yes, it's installed. It looks like you need to run the dpkg reconfigure command for this package, for some reason; in the terminal just paste this in:

1. It got the software from the Ubuntu repositories - it's a big online catalog of software that can be easily installed within Ubuntu. If you go to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager you can see the entire contents of the catalog.
2. You don't need to know where it all installed to. If you want to know, then it's available under Properties in Synaptic.
3. Video tutorial in my signature for this situation, but I believe this software probably just runs constantly; it's a server. How you interact with the server is probably discussed in the documentation on the program's website, or in the "man" page.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
