Thanks everyone for looking at this posting. As with all new endeavors, one will try to do new things. I am using Ubuntu OS and having good luck with it. However, I have downloaded different software programs. I do not know how to install them!
Heres what I know have done!
I typed in from reading
sudo apt-get install build-essential
I put the iso cd into the drive as it asked and went thru some install process.
Heres what I think I have done.
I dont know
I am using the terminal program, is this the only way to run these processes? anything easier?
If someone can walk me thru an install of anykind, I can get an idea of how the process works. I have looked online and there is discussion of compilers and other programs.
I am getting used to the new terms and trying to keep things straight.
Thanks in advance and hopefully I can figure this out with your help
