The first and most important thing is to learn how to spell common English words.
I am still trying to run a "tremanal" to search for an "xserver" but there doesn't appear to be a "pakage" with that name. So "instad" of trying to do that, I realized the "proble" was with my typing, which the computer could not interpret. So I took a few minutes to learn how to spell the required commands, and suddenly everything is working again.
Computers are slavishly, strictly literate in a simple-minded sort of way, and possess no ability to grasp the meaning of lazily typed non-commands. r u getting it? WTF? OMG!
This may seem unresponsive and impertinent, but there is no chance for us to help you unless you accept a responsibility to press the keys on your computer keyboard in a particular way. Without that effort and discipline, your problems will multiply like starlings and the sky will grow dark.
