Hellooo Linux Community!
 
Hey everyone, thanks for having a welcome forum. It's nice!

I'm interested in getting linux set up on a desktop, and have been having serious difficulties, so I've come here to ask some questions! I hope I can find some help.

Welcome to LQ!

What 'problems'? UEFI? Maybe try 'in' VirtualBox.org
https://brb.nci.nih.gov/seqtools/installUbuntu.html
(Or even OSboxes.org pre-installed!)

Enjoy!

Here's a good book: https://edu.anarcho-copy.org/Against...negus-10th.pdf

Oh... it is a long story with error messages lost to the sands of time.

Let's see...

Started with a project to become more anon online. Went with Kodachi. Was a nice distro, cool tools, but not super set up for every day use. That's where my problems started I guess there were things missing from the distro that would have been included in popular ones like Mint. Stuff like GCC compiler was out of date for a particular version of Virtual box I was trying to load. was having a hard time figuring out solutions to all these errors.

Then attempted to get a different distro, and then my boot problems started. Eventually, I figured out I was in the wrong boot mode, legacy instead of uefi, but what was annoying was the one-time boot menu wasn't even listing my media under the uefi boot options. That's why it took me so long.

Then i got mint, then i got virtuabox, then loading windows onto it was blue screen after blue screen. service file-somethingorother, and a quota underflow error. Then i got VMware, and it's much better, have windows on there now, but it's telling me it's a 30 day trial. I thought they had a free version, but i can't seem to switch it. Guess I'll wait until it runs out and see what it says.

And now i'm just trying to learn more things about linux. over a month in total trying to get these things set up.
