The stupidest question ever

Hi, again.
When you guys give us newbies a code, where do I actually have to write it on?

congratulations on posting the stupidest question ever. I'm not sure what you win, but there are hundreds of others anxiously waiting, with bated breath, to steal your crown.

In deciphering the 'code' about the 'code', my telekinetic powers inform me that you are speaking of a 'command', and asking where you may place it.

A million readers just thought the same thing in mental answer.

However, you place this 'command' aka 'code' in a terminal. I am deducing that you are using KDE or Gnome, so you would open a terminal by right-clicking on the empty Desktop and selecting 'open terminal' (or something similar.)

Be aware that this 'code' may not work unless you are root, which means you first have to enter 'su -' into the terminal, and proceed with caution.

gotta go, got another call.

a bit over the top on the sarcasm but still helpful.
Asking stupid questions is alright since we are here to help but they probably belong in the newbie forum. Also try to make your title more descriptive. You will get better responses that way
