After a week of trial and error and searching for answers I found this
and hope it helps. Since I am used to a Windows OS the Ubuntu set up is
foreign to me. I downloaded Ubuntu (newest version) to try it. So far, I
like what I see but what I do not understand is how to install certain
things. My Symantec Antivirus and a DVD player for two. I tried the
downloader with the antivirus and I just get an error message. I tried
the dvd player but on the website all I get is code to install.
I'm not a computer geek, but I'm not a novice computer user either. I
really need some help in some basics. I have read several help pdfs but I
still need some further assistance. I would like to get rid of the
Windows OS completely but b/4 I do, I need to understand Ubuntu.
Would really appreciate some assistance.
Like Gilles has already mentioned,
1. You would probably never need an anti-virus on Ubuntu
More info @
s-no-antivirus-needed However if you are still interested read
Also for Playing DVD's Ubuntu must have prompted you to install media
codecs wen you tried to play any .MP3 files, and if you did that then
you should be well off playing DVD's too without much tinkering.
And yes VLC is an excellent Audio / Video player.
And yes, ignore the sometimes irrelevant discussions on this thread ...
Welcome to the Linux / Ubuntu community
& RU d*_*b
Installing the Ubuntu Restricted Extras tends to install the codecs and a few
other odds and ends oft taken for granted by windows users. So that's
something I'd suggest as well
