First I have no idea how ubuntu works, all I have heard is that it is a small platform OS and that is what I am looking for. Here is my challenge: I have a Toshiba Satellite L355, 2.8 gig ram, 154.4 gig hard drive. with a genuine intel CPU email@example.comGHz, OS type is 32 bit. I just installed ubuntu v.13.04 32 bit on it, I have not added any other programs or even any data, it should be a clean install. Now here is what I need to know:
I want to run a program called Livestream Podcastor and also a program called honestech vhs to dvd 5.0 deluxe
The program Livestream Podcastor is exactly that, it let's me livestream from my camcorder which is hooked up to the honestech box which is hooked up to a firewire connection in the express slot of the laptop. Now what I need to know is do I need to have any other add on's to make this work? I am pretty sure that the livestream podcastor is based on adobe flash.
I have the express card plugged in but not sure the computer see's it or not and have no idea how to check. At this time I am hunting and pecking just to see how things work, now in windows you have windows explorer where you can see all your drives and files, I haven't even found this yet in ubuntu, I wanted to see like the properties of c drive to see how much space I have but still haven't found that yet.
Any way any help would be most appreciated.
