This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have an acer aspire one zg5
i am a novice with linux, all was running great until some vids on facebook stopped working. i left it but now vids on youtube wont even work it says my browser is not supported. Seems i have deleted something maybe. I have tried downloading it again but i realy dont have a clue. If anyone could kindly advise me on this i would be most gratefull, i brought the acer as an x display and was not given a password
If you think you accidentally deleted something, then what all did you delete prior to this happening? And for the next time, please describe your problem in the subject line, and not "newbie help please." It is very annoying, and it pisses a lot of people off, including myself. Thank you for understanding.
Sorry i dont know what you mean by distro? the browser if i'm right was firefox, it seems to be there but i'm realy not sure what i have done. I will try the above and see how i get on. Many thanks
Sorry, i guess i should have read rules etc before posting,
I deleted firefox, cant seem to install it again, sinse doing this no vids work (youtube)
I have found the recovery disc that i didnt know i had, maybe i could use this although it looks like hard work, for me
I have now used the recovery disc, copied it to usb device so its reinstalled but cant made adobe work, i have installed it but videos still wont play, it says install adobe??? i havent got a clue, i guess i havent done something?
