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.

You can get packages through software center also but it appears synaptic isn't installed by default in ubuntu but can be installed. I use it more than software center because it's easier to find what you're looking for. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto
did you read the link I posted? If you want to learn linux you better learn to search then read versus asking all the time. If there is a language barrier tell us. Not trying to be mean, just speaking from experience and trying to help.
I tried downloading the recommended driver, and although that made things work faster, it still did not give me the higher resolution I wanted and made my libreoffice crash all the time, which I don't know why.
I tried adding the resolution, but the terminal says that the command isn't valid.
