I am struggling bad with this new Ubuntu CE 8.04. I don't understand Linux at all I can't grasp the basics. Everything out there on the internet that I find (to me) leave a big gap. I have been trying to install things on the system and I have not been having any problems with the add/remove program but I have been having problems with other manual installations. One of the commands that I have been told to use in one of the installations is "make", "make install" and I don't know what to do with this. I have tried to use the sudo command and then nothing happens. One of the the things that I was trying to install is KDENLive and they said that I need to have a lot of other software install and I can download it and extract it but then there is no installation file. I found a config file and ran that but then I don't see anything else.
Installation has been the biggest problem and the biggest question for the last year or so since I have been messing around with linux. I was trying to use Linspire 5.0 until someone in these formus recommended Ubuntu and I am loving Ubuntu. I just need to figure out what I am doing in the OS.
I need to get some help with trying to find somewhere were I can learn the commands and basics of Ubuntu.
PS I am also still having problem with my Samba. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-samba-678176/
Thank you for your time.
