    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Question Re: The Beginner Team has started

    I just downloaded Ubuntu last week. I need to get to servers that recongnize only Internet Explorer. I tried to download wine from their web site but their first instruction is to open a terminal window. How do I open a terminal window, what is a terminal window. Also, do you just copy and paste their codes into the "terminal window"?

    Re: The Beginner Team has started

    Wow Hello and thanks,
    I am a keen home user who is trying to to get to grips with stuff. I'm finding just getting my head around simple things like downloading, where do files go, how to you then activate the file/application.
    One problem with the forum I think a lot of total noobs like me find is that there are lots of different levels of knowledge out there and a great variety of ways to fix things!
    It's strange that part of me wants the simplicity of click and install Windows stuff and the other wants to get involved in the whole terminal thing.

    A good place to start would be installing a 2nd Gen iPod Nano. That would keep my wife happy and show her how good Ubuntu is! I think I've just about done it but it was very long winded and I haven't a clue what I did?!?

    Great idea! I'm greener than a sea sick lepricon when it comes to Linux, so I will take advantage of the help. Thanks!

    There is a plugin for Firefox called User Agent Switcher that lets you choose which browser it tells the web sites they are talking to. It won't help with malformed HTML or ActiveX, but it will help with a lot of sites that check for IE and then refusse to talk to you. In FF, go Tools->Add-ons and then get extensions (bottom right).

    To open a terminal, it's under Accessories->Terminal. Yes, you can copy/paste the commands which is much more reliable than re-typing them.

    Welcome to Ubuntu everybody.

    Re: The Beginner Team has started

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have spent about 10 hours a day for the past 3 days on Absolute Beginner Talk finding people who have had my same goals and frustrations so that I can fix things up. The community for Ubuntu is amazing, especially for a n00b with a 64-bit processor trying to (among other trials and tribulations) communicate with a Lexmark printer... ouch!
