NOVICE - Mandrak 10.1 ;and to Linux e
Oh help............puleeze.............here am I a novice escaping from Microsoft after twenty years of slavery and having awful problems. My Epiphany browser wont display emails on Yahoo in HTML and a search of the browser shows no reasonable help file index search. I´ve tried downloading Firefox and cannot get it to install because there is an error every time I extract the files to my Downloads folder. I managed to download a slide viewer gthumb2.6.5 but the shell command won t work on the ´confiugre´ and I have to click on the file itself in the folder then I cannot find ´make´ or ´make file´ in the gthumb folder to double click nor can I do it from a command line.
If windows MS does one thing it really spoils users by its simple ´instal´ or ´setup´ exe files.
Can anyone tell me where to start with this please............ANY advice would be welcome and if you could post your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org it would be most appreciated.
Kind regards and many thanks
