Is it just me or does ubuntu not want to do anythin?
Alright guys, So I decided I wanted to make the switch over to Ubuntu for general computing and day to day use.
I seem to have never ending issues with everything I try to do
First things first.
I cannot for the life of me get skype to install.
First issue was down to me being on the AMD64 platform, So I followed a guide to allow me to force 32bit architecture install, Then there were other installations saying Librarys were missing (there was a lot of them so i apologies for not typing them here), When I tried to install these, it was more errors and so and and so forth...
next issue, I cannot get unity 3D to start / run...
First time around i got errors to the effect of missing files, I reinstalled Ubuntu then I got errors saying here was no objects to apply(or to that effect) I really wanted to use the nice 3D visuals like the cube, wobbly windows etc. i have no unity 3D Icon in the control panel either?
next thing, May seem minor but some of my shortcuts do not work, Or maybe they are not supposed to.
In windows 7 on Firefox if I want to go back a page, I can press backspace, this doesn't seem to work on Ubuntu same when in picture viewer, pressing the left and right arrow keys do not change the image to the next one?
So far I have been a little scared to try anything else due to everything going wrong so many times.
I am using the latest build of Ubuntu 12.1 and have reinstalled maybe 4 times so far, currently I am on a 100% fresh install...
All help is totally appreciated
