Thread: New user help

  1. #1

    Default New user help

    Need some assistance, i downloaded the Live CD since i didn't really know the difference between it and the DVD. In order to install while running the cd i need to run the "liveinstaller" icon? Aside from this, im using a rosewill USB wireless adapter and its not being detected, what can i do to have access to my internet? I decided to take the leap and learn Linux on my own and im really going to need some help. I alraedy went over the newbie section and did some readin there.. also got a copy of the one page linux manual. All help is greatly appreciated.

    Which distribution you downloaded?
    Lets assume, you have 11.1. It will not detect it like that way to show any notification to you.
    There is a network manager in the panel bar down right corner at the screen. right click on it and see, is there any wlan0, wlan1 showing. Make sure your USB adapter is plugged in correctly.
    Linux[openSUSE, KDE], PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, Tech News, etc :

    You really need to bite the bullet and install. But if it were me I would use the DVD and probably choose Gnome, unless you are a KDE fan like me.
    You can't really do much with the device as it is, you need to be installed.

    You may find some install help in my howto's

    I heard that Gnome is more stable and bit uglier looking, lol. I removed the USB wireless adapter and plugged it back in while running the live cd and the two lights indicating activity on the device didn't even turn on so im guessing is not working properly or even being detected. I'll my self the DVD and install Gnome as you suggested. I just dont want to install and then not have internet thanks alot though for all your help. I will read over your suggestes articles.
