Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just installed ubuntu 11 on my toshiba ac 100 and I can't get youtube videos to work.
It says i need adobe flash player and I tried to install it. I'm new to this OS.
I did sudo wget -O /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so http://kotelett.no/ac100/phh/Android...flashplayer.so
but it's not working.
Does anyone have any ideas what should I do?
I have no personal experience with this new ARM technology. I did a quick check of the Ubuntu and Adobe pages for you, but couldn't find a version for the ARM architecture, sorry. I think you will need to do some further research; have you checked http://ubuntuforums.org yet?
@tommcd, I also tried what you said and when i make sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer it says: unable to locate package flashplugin-installer. Do you have any idea why and what should i do?
The flashplugin-installer package is the flash package that is in the Ubutnu 11.10 repos and it is what I have installed on my Ubuntu 11.10: http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/f...ugin-installer
Make sure you have the multiverse repo enabled. You can check this in Synaptic Package Manger or in your Software Sources. The multiverse repo should be enabled by default though.
Can you run sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer from the terminal and post the complete output here.
