I just received my new computer with linux! I am a complete beginner… I understood my computer uses gnome and this is about it… I looked on Internet how to install softwares and it seems I don’t have the Add Remove software application (at least I cannot find it…) and I can’t find any program installer either… Could anyone help me?
I am afraid I dont know what i am using, I have seen Linpus or something like this the first time I switched on…
I don’t have Software service, I have Gnome control center but I have been through its menu and there isn’t anything
Someone else on the forum mentioned having a Revo 3700 and it came with Linpus 9.5 pre-installed.
Is there anything in your menu’s called Package Manager, or YUM ?
BTW, if it is Linpus 9.5, I’d install another Linux distribution instead … Linpus 9.5 is based on Fedora 8 which is no longer recieving updates or security fixes … I’d suggest installing Ubuntu or Linux Mint instead.
I don’t know what is a terminal (and i don’t see anything with this name) and I don’t see anything you mentioned…
I have a lot of application already installed and even when I am logged in as “root” it doesn’t change anything.
My operating system is "Linpus Linux X Windows 9.5 100623 V1, if it helps…
I don’t mind to install whatever is better if I can! I tried to install chrome, skype and a new version of adobe flash and nothing happens! I can download but when I tried to install it doesn’t work…
Honestly… I have never heard of such a thing. I’ve heard of Linpus Linux though.
Would you be able to take a screenshot of your desktop please, it could help us further. Just look for the “prtscrn” (or similar) button on your keyboard.
Right from Agnes has posted, I’ve worked out that he/she is on Linpus 9.5. In which case, I’d personally advise you to move to Ubuntu/Mint as soon as possible, but leave that for another discussion. I’m not much of an expert, but I’m sure Mark will be able to guide you through to a solution.
I am more than happy to try Ubuntu as you recommended it… I ll put it on my key… It takes time to download so I ll try tomorrow…
I hope it will work… otherwise I ll bother you again with my questions!!! ;D
