How do you install the software to a ubuntu operating system?


Ubuntu is based on Debian and use .deb package system. You can't install Windows software.
If you are new to the Linux World I advice you to use the "Ubuntu Software Center" available on the latest releases:

http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/features/ubuntu-software-centre

It's very simply to use, just search what you need and select it: the system with download and install it for you.

How to Make Ubuntu Play MP3 Files


Because of licensing issues, Ubuntu is unable to play MP3s out of the box. We’ll show you how to play MP3s and other restricted file formats in about four mouse clicks.
The philosophy behind Ubuntu is that software should be free and accessible to all. Whether MP3 and other file formats are free is unclear in many countries, so Ubuntu does not include software to read these file formats by default.
musicplayer_001.png Fortunately, it does include a package that installs the most commonly used file formats all at once, including a Flash plugin for Firefox.
Note: These instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04. There are small differences for earlier versions of Ubuntu.
Play MP3 Files
Open the Ubuntu Software Center, found in the Applications menu.

Click on View and ensure that All Software is selected.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_001.png Type “restricted extras” into the search box at the top-right. Find the Ubuntu restricted extras package and click Install.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_002.png Enter your password when prompted.
authenticate_003.png Once the install is complete, close out of Ubuntu Software Center, and you’ll be able to play MP3 files! To confirm this, we’ll open up Rhythmbox, found in the Sound & Video section of the Applications menu.
sshot116.png Our test MP3 plays with no problems!
Note: If Rhythmbox tells you that MP3 plugins are not installed, close Rhythmbox and reopen it. You should not have to install anything extra through Rhythmbox.

Despite this extra step, playing the most common audio and video file formats – including Flash videos on the internet – is simple. All the software comes installed, you just have to teach them how to read your files.

I have a windows 7 ultimate.. i installed an Ubuntu OS..It showed that my windows is not genuine.so i entered my product key.. but still it shows an error code and doesn't get genuine...:(


Ubuntu 11.04 is the latest distro from Linux,Its pretty robust loading onto corrrupted windows and other systems and running perfectly after that.Best thing would be to erase the windows system if you dont like it and just run Ubuntu or any other system,your windows probably is genuine unless you live in the far east,so i wouldnt take much notice of the error message..look for the genuine Microsoft "Hologram" sticker on your software/software box.

My 900 HD have the license Window XP home edition but d running UBUNTU when it's booted up . How do I get windows to run and not UBUNTU.


Hello scot70, it seems you now have a "Duo Booting System," Ubuntu, and Windows XP.
What happened is that since the "Ubuntu is the "Last" Operating System installed on the Computer," it will be the OS that will "Load" [1st]!
All you have to do is 'change the "Boot Sequence," I could explain how to 'change it permanently, but I will give you the {short version}.
Once you "Restart the Computer," and it Boot-up; there should be a "Prompt Message;"
this 'message' should appear in the "Window of the Boot Options" everytime you restart the Computer from now on!
So, next time "Choose the OS that you want to "Boot-up [1st]. That would be the "Window XP."
I hope this information is helpful? Thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9"

How to install linux operating system


Hello
A free software operating system based on Linux was created and it was named Ubuntu. It offers all services needed by ISPs, mail servers, DNS servers, FTP servers, MySQL servers, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, and Firewalls. Red hat, Apache and Ubuntu are Linux software distributors. Ubuntu is widely used because it is free and you don't have to pay any licensing fee. Updates are also available for free and accessible online.
To install Ubuntu Linux software you can use the program "Wubi."
The first thing to do is to download Wubi to your desktop and then run the executable program. Then choose the drive in your computer where you want your installation to go. Wubi will place a file on your local drive. It will use this drive as a virtual hard drive. Most often the C drive is used for this purpose. Choose a bigger installation size to allow installation of other programs and storage of data. Choose your language. Type in your username and then your password for security reasons and for your installation to proceed. You will use this for logging on to your computer, installing programs and making changes to the system. Once you click "Install" Wubi will start to download the installation files. When the installation files have completely been downloaded, you have to reboot. Restart your computer. You'll see on your screen a prompt that asks you to select the operating system that you like-whether you like to boot Ubuntu or Windows. Choose Ubuntu. This will complete the installation of your Ubuntu Linux OS. Another way of installing the Ubuntu Linux software is by using:
An Ubuntu CD installer An Internet connection Everything you need to install Linux comes in one CD that provides a complete working environment. You can get the additional software you will need online for your installation. The available graphical installer makes installation easy and quick. Your computer will have Internet, drawing and graphics applications, and games after Linux has been installed.
Now your computer is ready to work to the max. You'll have it functioning the way you want it and enjoy its features as well. Working on a computer is as much fun as it is functional. You can now browse for information you need, play a variety of games and even listen to your favorite music and watch some videos.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Why i cant install messenger to my pc.. Linux ubuntu is my windows


Hello,
First of all, the programs made for windows can't be run on Ubuntu because Linux based operating system don't execute *.exe files.
Messenger programs like Pidgin, skype are already added in the repository of Ubuntu. You can select from the software management menu and install. Besides, you can also download the sources (tar balls) of various other messengers written fir Linux distributions, compile them and install. You need just to search on Google for all available messengers for Ubuntu.
It is advisable that you download a Debian package of the software because it is just like Windows .exe file to install it. Just, a click.
Let me know if you need any other help regarding installation of softwares on Linux.
We are always available for your help.

Regards.

Installing ubuntu on Raid 0


Ok I have Duo booted ubuntu a couple of times now. When you were partitioning did you use the automatic or he manual? Since you have two hard disks, I will assume you use a desktop and you know how to take it apart. So, if you did automatics the bestt I can tell you is to swith your hard drives around physically and if that fails try switching g the boot menu order. If you used manual partitioning then when you were creating the ext3 partition you did not type / in the text box labeled Moint Point (that's the best I can help you) I hope this has fixed your problem. GO UBUNTU
