I am actually in UBUNTU and my 1st round of questions after several hours new to this OS, are
I get a message saying :no application suitable for auto installation of this kind of file is suitable for this kind of file " whenever I try to open an .exe or any other kind of installer.
Sometimes I get a small box titled Öpen Files"but it contains empty space and I have no idea what to type in. SO:---
1.What do I put in it?
2. When I am in Nautilis File Browser, under DEV" I have may executable files but the owner is root , so how do I overcome that? Do I need to create a root account and how would I do that?
My usb stick with downloaded Linux exe files from Linux software, like clamwin,give me the above messages. The USB stick popped up amazinly fast when I stuck it in, then it dsappared. so how can I find it again? Where did it go? So I can try a .rar install of something.
I realize there is a lot of command typing, but I need to learn what to type and where. I am only a UBUNTU user for 4 hours so would you knowledgeable experts respond with simple language that I might EASILY understand and please be patient with me? Because altho it really is a fantasic OS, so far I am really, really lost.
This is just the beginning of thousands upon thousands of points for somebody.
Why do they push exe downloads, when you need to be a magician to open them?
How can I get the dollar sign to change to this # in the terminal ?
PS: how do I make the scree fonts bigger? I am afraid to try without being sure. I am using a very powerful magnifying glass right now.
