Newbie - Need Linpus Help


Hi Guys,

I got a Acer Aspire One (8GB, 512ram) with Linpus installed.
I couldn't get my printer installed on it so wiped it and installed XP, but it was too slow, so installed Linpus 9.4 from the Linpus site
(I couldn't find the recovery disc that came with the netbook).
It's a different version of Linpus to the one that came pre-installed.

I have a few problems:

1. I have no sound when playing BBC iplayer and Youtube through Firefox.

2. To play BBC iplayer full screen I need to download an Adobe program but when I try to install the .exe file it asks me to choose a program to be able to open the .exe file, but there isn't a program that can do it.

3. As Number 2 but when trying to install Firefox 3.exe

Can anyone help with these?

You cannot install .exe programs in Linux, since they are Windows programs. You have to look for a Linux version of the Adobe program (if any) and the Linux version of Firefox.
