Ok, thankyou for the help! Thats what I thought for viruses.
I am stuck on the "Turn on the Universe repositories." Step. The window window is titled "Software Sources" and has the follow tabs at the top: -Ubuntu Software | Third-Party Software | Updates | Authentication | Statistics- I clicked on all of them, and seen nothing that said Universe Repositories, and nothing about turning stuff on. I can screenshot any of it if you like/want.
You are in Software Sources. You need to go to Synaptic Package Manager. I think you clicked on the wrong thing (they're right next to each other on the menu).
And you're welcome!
Yes, Ubuntuforums.org is a great thing, as Spyder said.
Also, if you want to get a Screen Saver, go to System -> Preferences -> Screen Saver. I personally think Skyrocket is the coolest one I've ever seen. Has a lot of depth.
Also, System -> Preferences -> Desktop Effects has some fun things.
Finally, for an antivirus (just in case ;), as BlackSpyder suggested), here's how to install AVG Free (courtesy of the wonderful world of ubuntuforums.org)
1. In Ubuntu, go here
, and download the one for Debian-based distributions to your Desktop folder (/home/(YOURUSERNAME)/desktop). Depackage it.
2. Go to the terminal and type this:
sudo rm -r /usr/share/applications/avggui.desktop
3. Then, type this:
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/avg.desktop
4. In that file, add this entry:
Exec=gksudo avggui &
5. Save and exit.
Tada. Enjoy Ubuntu!
