First off, hello to all!
Now, here's my delima:
About a year ago, after much begging, my boyfriend partitioned my HDD and installed Slackware 10.2 onto my machine after I took interest in learning about Linux. Needless to say, he never really showed me how to use it. I only know how to login, start everything up, so I can get on GAIM and Firefox...and that's where my problem lies. I'm now sick and tired of Windows, to the point where I'm ready to throw my comp out the window, and want to switch to full on Linux - BUT the new HP wireless rechargeable optical mouse I got for Christmas doesn't wanna work, and nor do my speakers. I have to use the keyboard to maneuver as well as I can, and can't listen to music. I have no clue how to set up things in Slack, and my boyfriend is currently 1500miles away in the army, so he can't do this for me. :|
So, can anyone try to help me out? It'd be greatly appreciated!
