Idiot's Guide in Installing Monitor and Nvidia Drivers and Flash Player in Opera


Hi! I just installed Ubuntu 6.10 and I am happy except that since I am a newbie, I find the interface a little bit overwhelming. Now, there are things that I want to fix in Ubuntu and i followed the ubuntuguide and for some reason I can not make it work or is It just me? Are the things we suppose to do should be done in terminal? Can someone show me the things that I should do "step by step"?

1. I am using a 7600 GS graphics card. How do I install the drivers? How do I know that the drivers are installed already?

2. How do I set the resolution? The drag down bar in Screen Resolution seems to be stuck in one setting? Should I install the driver for my monitor? I am using an LG 17-inch CRT.

3. I am an Opera user. My problem is I can not install the Flash Player correctly and I thin that you have to intall a component called Open Motif, how do I do this?

Install OpenMotif in Opera
Go to http://www.opera.com/linux/docs/plugins/install/motif/ to download OpenMotif openmotif_2.1.30-5_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-all openmotif_2.1.30-5_i386.deb
I tried the guide but to no avail. An error always show up. I tried Synaptic Package Manager and its always say: dependency is not satisfiable: xlib6g.

Here is the guide on how to istall Flash Player.

Installation instructions
.tar.gz installation
Click the "Download .tar.gz" link. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
Unpackage the file. A directory called install_flash_player_9_linux will be created.
In terminal, navigate to this directory and type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. Click Enter. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
.rpm installation
Click the "Download .rpm" link. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
Save the .rpm file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
In terminal, navigate to the desktop and type # rpm -Uvh . Click Enter. (Note: This must be done as a root user). The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
After downloading, it says that I should go to terminal and navigate to the directory where I saved the file, how do i navigate in terminal to go to desktop and run the program?

Sorry for these questions, I tried searching but could not find the right answer. I hope someone here is kind enough to teach a complete idiot to resolve my problems. Thanks in advance!
