First you will want to open Nautilus, the Unbuntu file manager. From here go to -Edit/preferences Then select the tab that says -behaviour Then clock on "Single click to Activate files" That should do the trick!

Can I get My Computer icon in Ubuntu 11.10


There is no My computer icon in KDE.
On the task bar click the K with the Gear. Explore the Favorites menu. Make sure that the Dolphin file explorer is there. By clicking Dolphin your Home folder will open.
You can also add a widget on the desktop. Point to some empty space on the desktop. Right click the mouse button then select Add widgets. At the bottom of the screen some windows open. In the categories, look for file sytem. Choose and enter. A widget of your home will be displayed.

One advice. I think you should run the Synaptic Package. Manager to make sure you get all necessary packages for KDE. In the QuickFilter text area enter KDE. All packages that relate to KDE will be displayed. Explore to see if there is something you need that was not installed.
Select all the packages you want. Any package required for the one you selected will be chosen for installation.

Ubuntu Desktop Edition CD Free shipping.


CD? Free? They sell DVD's. Try downloading it and burning. It should fit on a CD, and the cost is cheap. Free!

I do not like Ubuntu 11.10 can I go back to Ubuntu 10.10


Unfortunately, there is no "downgrade" path. The only way around it, is to re-install the version you want only after formatting your hard drive. Otherwise if it is only the desktop look that you are after, there are ways to get it to look and act like that of 10.10.
To get the classic Ubuntu interface:
First click the little screen icon top right.
Click System Settings at the bottom.
Then on the left hand side of the Control Center click System
Then Click Login Screen
Then click Unlock and put your password in.
At the bottom you can select Ubuntu Classic as your default session.
Close it and reboot.
Enjoy!!

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!
