JUST installed Kubuntu. What should I do now?


I just got it working, and I am so happy! It rocks! But... what do I do now? Should I go out and buy a book on Linux? Is there software I should install? And most importantly, are there any FTP's you guys reccomend?

Software: There should be software called Adept. Open it up, (with live internet connection of course), and browse the thousands of available software.

Ummm ... I suggest using it?

A book is always a good idea, have a look at rute (search our public
bookmarks for it).

As for the software: depends on what you want to do with it.

As for ftp: with Ubuntu you're most likely wanting to use apt-get,
not sure what ftp sites you're after ...


Cheers,
Tink

According to Adept, I already have an FTP. But I can't seem to find it...

What you do next depends entirely on what you want to do with it.

I agree. What was your purpose for installing linux. Use it for that purpose. if it was for experimenting then experiment.

I'd suggest you go to a commandline, and type
man -k ftp

Happy reading. Btw, I *highly* recommend you actually read the stuff
from the link I posted.


Cheers,
Tink
