I don't understand Linux AT ALL


Decided to try Linux Ubuntu 6.10. Well lets just say the install was a breeze but that was about it. I'm trying to install the Linux ATI drivers for my system but I have NO understanding of the command...or whatever I'm supposed to do. Can someone give me some guidance here? Please understand Windows has institutionalized me and I have no idea what I'm doing with Linux at all. Where do I go to enter a command or script to get this driver to install?

Thanks

Welcome to LQ!

Try these instructions Here. Obviously, use the section for "Edgy Eft".

The commands need to be typed in a terminal window, which should be under Accessories in the Applications menu.

Have a look at the Ubuntu help site for heaps of other information on using Ubuntu.

I hope this helps
