What distribution are you using? Do you know the name of the package manager on your distribution?

Look it up in the literature that came with your computer. Or you could use Google to look up your make and model of computer on the internet.

Oh, that's tough one... You don't know what distribution you're using? Guys, is it possible to easily determine what distribution one is running?

Code:
cat /etc/slackware-version
works in Slackware. 'uname' is useless. Hmm, guess we lack a simple way to answer that question. Please prove me wrong.

Hei! Guess we are "landsmenn".

According to Wikipedia you are using Linux Xandros.

("landsmenn" means countrymen, fellow citizens in Norwegian)

I suggest we stick to English. I'm not sure, but the rules may prohibit all languages except English. Anyway, speaking English is kind of polite.

Besides, I have very little knowledge of Xandros. I'm a Slackware guy. So I don't thinks I can help, even if I write Norwegian. Of course, if some clever Xandros expert writes in English and you don't understand I can help translate.

Chech out this URL: http://www.xandros.com/products/gettingstarted.html

To install other applications

For some editions, you install an office suite (StarOffice® or OpenOffice.org) and other applications, such as Adobe® Reader and the GIMP graphics program, using the Applications CD. After login, simply insert the CD and follow the prompts.
Don't know if this is any help though...

But look at the screen shots and compare it to what you see on your screen. In that way you can verify of you're really using Xandros.


In Norwegian:
Se på skjermbilene fra linken over og finn ut om det virkerlig er Xandros du bruker. Da er du ett skritt videre i hvert fall.
