What do you see when you open the terminal?
do you see a commandprompt like
Code:
user@netbook$
or something like that?
What is the game she wants to play?
Is it on the internet?

What happens when you type
Code:
dpkg
and then hit enter at the commandprompt?

Do you have a login and password?
try to use them at the commandprompt.

I have looked or info on the internet about this OS, but i'm unable to find information, except fot the users manual, which isn't very helpfull.
I hope someone here uses the netbook, and can give some help.

Just a thought:
Do you have flash enabled in the browser?
No addons, like noscript .... ?

I would also like to know the answer for this one. I tried to install adobe 10. It crashed... using gbedi 0.5.9. installer. ubuntu 9.1 maybe a little to much for me right. Will Fedora be more for plugins for common web browsing?
