How do I play CD or install software in a Mac laptop
Posted on 2013-06-05
I own a MacPro laptop via my employer and have been using it for the past few weeks. In the past I was a Windows user. Problems mount up over time. I managed to install VMWare to obtain the choice to get Windows 7 for running some basic Windows program on the Mac PC.
Now I am stuck as I cannot install some basic software that in in the installation disk (cd or dvd) on the laptop as there is no cd/dvd drive in it. Also I was hoping to watch dvd movies on the laptop as I have quite a bit of dvd collection t home. But that is also impossible it seems as the laptop has no cd/dvd drive.
They keyboard is so annoying. The mouse-board does not have a right-mouse click option. The keyboard has a different button to the left of "Ctrl" button, causing the "Ctrl"/"Alt"/"Del" press as well quite a bit difficult for me.
Also for basic software installation, do I need to use "root" account? Or my login account with which I can sudo to install the software should work? I do not have access to the root account password.
In case you could help, I will appreciate. Thank you.
