In your icon launcher ribbon there on the left of your screen you have an icon that looks like a paper shopping bag with fireworks click on it. that will be the Ubuntu software center. Most of the stuff you need to install in your computer are going to be in there.

To open a terminal click on the very first icon in that launcher, is like a black icon with a circle then a search field will open type there terminal then an icon that resembles a monitor will show, click on it and that is the terminal.

When you are running an application a temporary icon is placed on the launcher if you right click on it you can pin these applications to the launcher permanently I suggest you to pin the terminal there.

Good luck to you man! Enjoy Ubuntu

Hi

When a new person comes along and annouces they are an idiot "newbie" and they have downloaded programs ppl on here think they have gone on net downloaded programs as tar balls and then dont know what to do with them, I/we needed to find out how you downloaded them. Using the software centre is the best/correct way. IF the software is there.
