    The Ubuntu Guide (http://ubuntuguide.org/) is an excellent guide and will help you get quite a bit setup. It is, though, for setting things up after install. If you are having problems with the install, you would be best to check the Ubuntu website.

    Hope that helps,

    thank you for replies

    For those who replied to my query:

    I am terribly sorry that I haven't replied quickly enough. Thank you
    all. I actually wanted to set up my wireless network for my laptop.
    Like I have said, I am using Acer Travelmate 290 with both Windows
    XP and Linux Kernel 4.10 running on my laptop. Unfortunately, being
    a linux Newbie, I don't have any idea how to approach this matter. If
    anyone could provide me with some tips, I would be more than happy
    to know. Thank you in advance.

    Sincerely,

    Young

    cannot open file nor install packages

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your replies again. I appreciate it.

    I found a tutorial on adding extra repositories and installing DHCP server for automatic IP address assignment. First of all, I tried to modify the file sources.list, but somehow I can't save the modified file. A warning window with message 'cannot save the file 'filename'. I also tried to install dhcp3-server, and the system wouldn't even install the server. I have no clue what to do now. Once again, thank you for your replies.

    When trying to change the sources.list file, did you do it as root? For example:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    If you didn't do it as root (sudo), you wouldn't be able to save the file.

    Hope that helps,
    Bryan

    wireless networks trouble

    Hello again,


    I went to system settings->networking and went through some configuatrion procedures. After the procedure, I typed in iwconfig on the terminal, and got the following results:

    lo no wireless extensions

    eth0 no wireless extensions

    eth1 unassociated ESSID: "young"
    Mode:Managed Channel =0 Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Bit Rate = 0kb/s Tx-Power = 20dBm
    RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
    Encryption key: off
    Power Management off

    sit no wireless extensions

    Am I missing something here? I made sure that the network would use DHCP to automatically configure the IP address. I also tried installing the dhcp3-server using apt-get (or aptitude) commands, but they both showed the same result saying that the dhcp3-server could not be found. I am right now trying everything to get the network up and working. Thank you very much for your help so far, almost forgot to mention.

    Sincerely,

    Young

    Hi Young,

    I don't have any experience with wireless in Linux (no need to set it up on my laptop) but it looks like it doesn't recognize your wireless card. I could be wrong but that is what it looks like from here.

    Thank you

    Hello Bryan,

    Thank you again for your reply. I don't use wireless card (using
    wireless router instead), but nontheless, I do have a same opinion as
    you do. Somehow, the whole wireless chip is not being recognized.
    Anyhow, thank you very much for your help.


    Cheers,
    Young
