It is just to point out that 10.04LTS Ubuntu package manager is not supported anymore so no new libraries will be installed from here on out. Translation for a NEWBY.
You are going to run into install problems with the latest download application installers off the web because your
libraries you have are too old to either install or run said application.
You will experience less grief installing and running a newer supported Linux version was my suggestion.
Installing a New Operating systerm is not as Hard as you may think it is and you will have learned something new
like a new language (which might make your BF a bit nervous) and that knowledge is yours and yours alone.
Nobody can take that from You.
