What's the point in saying that you know I won't agree with, why wouldn't I agree with you now since I understand what you are trying to point out? There was a communication gap.

Without getting into an argument with you over this, that wasn't a communication gap. If you had looked at the links, not saying you did or didn't, it should have been obvious what I was pointing out. The links go straight to the Official Debian cdimage pages and each DE has its own installation iso.d

Have a fun day

Yes, I didn't click the links before [I often don't click the links until the sentence gives a hint of what's in them], I read your first two sentences, which didn't say much regarding the links contents.

Hi all,

I have gone through the posts so I feel there are different suggestions.I think it is better if i go for Ubuntu as a beginner.My goal is to become a Linux user and then bend it to my own ways.It is good now I found a way to learn Linux .

Cheers

Know about open source.

Know about linux.

I think ubuntu is good for starters because most of the features are in graphical mode. Also if ur using ubuntu u dont need to go in search of packages. All the packages are provided in the Ubuntu Software center. In a click u can install all the packages u want.

@Rajat: I am not sure what you want to suggest by linking to your own blog in every post that you make? Stop advertising your blog here. And spell out your words correctly. SMS language here is deemed inappropriate.

It might be better if you put the links to your blog in your signature.

I know this wont be that popular, but IMO-

Dont bother with gnome. Gnome 2.X is on borrowed time, sooner or later you will end up struggling to find a way to run gnome 2.X. It might take 1-4 years, depending on the way things go and the distro you choose, but still, getting used to gnome now is bad idea IMO. Better of running Xfce, Lxde or KDE. At least they should be around for a fair while longer.

I'd also avoid ubuntu, especially if you do go with gnome. Gnome is still an option....for now. Ubuntu will be one of the 1st distros to cut gnome 2.X, they are busy pushing unity. Ubuntu has other problems, like the amazingly stupid dependencies some things have, eg plymouth (no, you cant remove plymouth at all if you want to have a system that will keep running).

Ubuntu isnt that good for learning about linux in general as well. You are better of trying a different distro, a lot of them might be a bit more difficult (depending on your hardware) but at least you will be learning something about the system, not how to run jockey-gtk, etc..

Debian sort-of has gnome as a defualt, but like k3lt01 said its easy to get KDE/LXDE/XFCE if you know where to look.

Anisha your words are very wise.

Obviously keeping everyone in the dark about things is a plot to allow forums to get a foothold on cyber society. mwahahahaha

"Knowing where to look' is just 'scroll down to the bottom of the CD image page' so its not hard at all. As long as you know they exist, or have a little curiosity then finding the other DE versions is really easy.

I cant remember how you get KDA/LXDE/XFCE with the DVDs, its been a long time since I installed debian from a DVD. IIRC they are all on DVD-1 though.

Hi all,

this thread has come so long, sometimes I feel I won't understand stuffs discussing here.Now I'm totally converted to Ubuntu(Never want to see Windows and Gates again ) I was trying to install flash player plug-in in Ubuntu 9.10.

I have downloaded the install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz file and untar it.
It contains libflashplayer.so file.
Then I was trying to install the plug-in, still I'm at a the fail end.

I would understand this is not too hard. I was trying several times at the end I I won't see any smile on my face.
It would be appreciated if somebody guide to do flash player plug-in installation.

Thanks

Nuwan Arambage
