Ok guys, I have been looking for the Synaptic Manager for hours now. I read to use the Meta Key. Click on it. I found what should be the Meta Key it is bewteen the CTRL and Alt key with the house on it. I click on it and it brings up an app menu with Media Apps, Internet apps, More Apps, Find files etc. According to the reading materials it should bring up a "dash" not sure what that looks like but in there should be the Synaptic Manager?????

Thanks.
Bobby

Do you know what interface you are using? Is it Unity or Classic?

If it is Classic (see screenshot) you go to Applications (it's at the top of the screen) > System Tools > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager.

If it's Unity I don't know because I don't use it but I should probably learn soon rather than later.

Open the terminal then type:
Code:
$ sudo synaptic
No need to type the $ it just indicates that your logged in your regular user not root #.

Or if what you have is Gnome then it is under the menu System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager

Regards

Thank you. I feel bad to keep asking questions but when I put this and other things in the terminal it then asks for my password for bob:---but it won't let me type in that box. Once I get set up which will be when I get Flash in, I won't have to keep asking for awhile.

Thanks,
Bobby

Bob, mate, the terminal will ask you for your password but when you type it you wont see anything happening. It is a security feature so people can't guess what your password is. After you type it just hit enter and go from there.

Don't feel bad about asking questions, we were all noobies at one time or another. We all learn by asking and then doing it and practising what we have been taught. The important thing is later on we remember we were noobies and we help other new comers with their problems that we have learnt how to work through. To me, at least, Linux is about "paying it forward".
