  1. Ok, please bear with me. This is my very first day running Linux. I have installed xubuntu and want to install things in the following list...


    audio editing software
    open office
    .mp3 codec
    dvd codec
    a game


    But I followed the directions and no-go! So, can somebody give me a known working application to install on xubuntu, and walk me step by step into the process? One more thing. The Linux computer does NOT have an internet connection. So downloads need to be less then 1gb.


    thanks for your help!

    That'll be a problem since 99% of the time, the easiest way to install something is through Synaptic.

    Ok, so...... I need internet? If Ethernet is it plug and play like XP? See, I am 17 and I am not allowed internet in my room. I do have a wireless thingy I could use if I get one of those cheep Ethernet cards.


    Thanks for your help!
