Unhappy I have tried to download WINE for my Ubuntu with no luck.


I have tried to download WINE for Ubuntu so that I can run Windows programs on my system. That is the final thing that I need to do to finally get rid of Windows.
The version that I tried to load was supposedly for Ubuntu, but when it went to install it went through the entire process and then said it could not finish loading. I do NOT have the reason that it gave, but I suppose I could go back and get it if necessary.

One other thing:
I can't seem to get my contact list to stay intact in my email system.
Does any one have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Can't help you with the contact info without more information about what program you're trying to use...

Okay, I have looked around and I am confused on one point.
I was told to load Automatix from Terminal. Where is "Terminal"?

Terminal is the command line. You probably just type "automatix"...
