    Re: I have one thread going on "New to UBUNTU" but this is more advanced.

    to install nvidia drivers, you open additional drivers application, select the recommended ones and install them. for example: https://itsfoss.com/install-additional-drivers-ubuntu/

    you can also add PPA if you wish and if you need some newer version. for example: https://www.mvps.net/docs/install-nv...-beaver-linux/

    just remember - new doesn't always mean better.

    You are definitely going about this the hard way. Can you give us some specs on the machine that you are trying to install the drivers on?

    It's all the same stuff as their other thread.

    Threads merged. Please don't create more than one thread for your question, it creates confusion for those trying to help.

    Re: Some noob questions.

    This is a technical help forum. Here, we deal with specific technical problems.

    What you are asking for is the equivalent of a course in Ubuntu. Even were the members here willing, the specific medium on which the forum is based is not conducive to such exchange.

    I recommend that you start with this website. The Ubuntu Manual Project is based on Xenial (16.04), but 95% of it is still relevant to Bionic. The book is licensed under a Creative Commons license, so is free to download and peruse at your leisure.

    After you finish with that, there are a ton of resources within the link in my sig: Resources for Newcomers.

    This is the reason for my reply. It is not possible to fulfill this request. It is like asking for "general information about how a nuclear power plant works…" There is no possible way for anyone to fill you in on a topic so vast. You must be prepared to do your own research. The links mentioned will get you started, but it is not reasonable to expect others to read your mind, figure out where the knowledge gaps are, then fill them in for you.

    Good Luck and Happy Ubuntu-ing!

    sigurdsk; Hello Again

    In addition to the most excellent advises given, May I re-direct your thought processes. This is open source where "you" have complete control over the operating system.
    Let's reset your thinking:

    Yep - correct - there is a learning curve -when you get beyond point-and-click- as "this ain't Windows". All of us have been there and we do understand the bewilderment and frustration. Give it some time and effort and you will begin to understand.

    We are here to help. As you have a question, open up a new thread on each separate issue that you encounter.

    open source !
    we are all in this together

    Happy ubuntu'n !
