I have installed Suse 10 with KDE on my laptop and I love it. It's so slick and smooth.
Because I am a complete linux newbie, I don't know anything about downloading and installing programs. I am use to windows with exe files.
I have managed to install Wine, but I don't really know how.
What I want to know, is what file do I download whne given the choice? I thought it would be cool to try the new GAIM 2 beta 3, so I went to the site (click here)
and am bombarded with a stack of files that I could download.
I understand that anything with src in the name means it is the source, or contains the source. Looking at those files, I also decided that no-gtk means no GTK library right?
I have no idea what i386 or Architecture type means at all.
So, question 1, what file do I need to download out of these particular ones?
question 2, in future, what file do I download when i'm presented with a lot of files (for another program)
On another note, I want to install Firefox 1.5. I currently have 1.0.8. I went to the firefox website and downloaded a file (probably wasn't the right one) but have not been able to do anything with it, even after I unzipped it (un tarred, however you say it :P)
So how do I update?
