You have to download ubuntu here:

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Then burn the file ( it's an iso) with a burning program like Nero or whatever you have available.

That's the easiest way.

Here are other ways you can do it:

Let me know if any of this doesn't make sense.

Best of luck!

I have gotten Ubuntu onto a usb flash drive its started on my pc, but when I go to install it it says " no root file system is defined, please correct this from the partitioning menu". I have no clue how...


I do not remember the install menu 100% but did you mark your primary partition with an "/"? When creating your partition table, a small window pops up in which you can set it to ext4, ntfs etc. but you also have to mark whether it is a swap, root or a different kind of partition. This field is blank by default but if you did not put a "/" in it, the installer might not recognize your partitions.

Black screen on Facebook Slotomania and can't retrieve requests


Run this on the command line:



"sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin"


that should update it to the latest version.

Another one is
"sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer"

One of those will work.

I hope this helps :)

I have downloaded Ubuntu Linux 12.04 and am running it under wondows xp sp1. How can I delete windows and just run Ubuntu ?


Here is what you need to do:


1. Open 'GParted'. From the menus: System -> Administration -> GParted
2. Right click on the ntfs partition and select 'delete'
3. Right click on this deleted partition and select 'Format to' and select ext3. This should accomplish what you want.


If GParted is not installed, then open a terminal window and type


Code:
sudo apt-get install gparted
And then proceed with steps 1-3 specified above.


PS: Backup any data you need from the WinXP partition before you do this.Alternately, instead of formatting the XP partition to ext3, you could do this:
Using gparted, as described above:
Right click the XP partition and click delete.
Right click the Ubuntu partition and click resize
In the resize dialogue, change the settings to that it is as big as possible.
Click apply changes.


This is riskyer, so BACK UP EVERYTHING!!!!!! I do not take responsibility for lost data.
This however will be closer to "unpartitioning" the drive, what was suggested above will still result in it being split into two partitions, they will just both be linux partitions.

How can I download and open to install Yahoo messenger please?


empathy for ubuntu works with most messenger formats including yahoo. empathy is installed along with linux on ubuntu 10.10 so may already be installed on your system. ubuntu 10.10 is free and I guess you must now be out of your 60 day included support.
you might want to check out the ubuntu forums on the correct syntax to download and install programs in ubuntu
http://ubuntuforums.org/
the valusoft offering appears to be ubuntu 8.04 which is way out of date as we're on 10.10 which is the latest stable release and includes a software installer.

What is the best system to boost my Laptop Acer Aspire 3100 speed?


Judging by the specs, I would install more RAM. At least 1 Gb more and install Windows 7. Or, you can install Ubuntu Linux for free and see a noticeable speed gain.

en.kioskea.net/.../affich-107338-how-to-install-tar-gz-file-on-ubuntu
Go to this website above it has a tutorial of how to do it.

you need to download and extract the file, then you enter the folder that is extracted through terminal. Then you should see avaulability of folder src and file configure. if that is not the case i cant help you. but if those files are present then on the terminal you've opened type "./configure", after some lines coming and going, you should again type "make", and then at last "make install" then the program gets installed. if this not work as planned or some message shows to get dependencies you should get them first.
