There are many versions of ubuntu depending on the computer you are installing it on and its specifications. For computers with less ram you may want to install Lubuntu which only requires a computer to have 128 mb of ram and is similar to windows in the user interface design. You can also download a checksum (hashes) file to ensure you have the proper version attached is a link of the different type of ubuntu and information on checksums (hashes).

I would suggest putting a live version on a thumb drive which allows you to test the Ubuntu version on your computer before you wipe your hard drive. I have included links to sites that have helped me out when I started learning about Ubuntu

Ubuntu is one of the easyest linux distributions to install, it has a visual setup which is very easy to understand and follow very similiar to installing software in windows, the dvd or cd can also be used 'live' without changes to the contents of the hard drive to test it out before decideing if you wish to install it or not.

you can get ubuntu vrom the official website www.ubuntu.com

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Im unable to update my version of ubuntu thru auto update as it says my version is not supported anymore what can i do to update my system?


    Welcome to FixYa.
    You have to download and re-install the latest version of Ubuntu. Download from this link http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download
    Make sure to back up all your important files before doing the re-installation.
    Ubuntu is a FREE Operating System, though they are trying very hard to support its users, it does not guarantee a total complete auto support like automatic updates. You have to re-install everything when new release is available.

    I need it fo free ,Can I please?


    Ubuntu is a popular and free operating system you can use. Here's a download link to Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

    Unfortumately, for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS you need to pay. There is a older version of Mac OS 7.5.3 that is free though. Here's a download link for that: http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.5_Version_7.5.3/

    I have OS as windows xp.I have 1 GB RAM.Then I want to install the ubuntu and use it.I dono to install.My friends told that 1 GB Ram can"t access the installation well. Then what is the solution to install...


    Hello Sir,

    I am sure your system meets the normal requirement for installing and using the Ubuntu OS. So you dont have to worry about the system speed and perfomance. I have also sent you the link to download the latest version of Ubuntu OS 10.4 from the original website. All you need to do is download it and burn that image file using nero or any image burning software to the dvd and boot the dvd in your system and install it.

    I have an ASUS netbook that runs linux. I don't know linux, but was told to upgrade to ubuntu. I don't know how. Anyone know how?


    1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.

    2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).

    3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).

    4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)

    5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).

    6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.

    7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.

    8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.

    9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).

    10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)

    11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

    Good Luck!
