With Win 7 I just click a link, download, run download, hey presto, updated. With the Linux I was presented with three different download options, with three different methods of installation, none of which I could get to work. All of them involved going into terminal and entering instructions, no click and sit back
Adobe discontinued Flash on Linux at 11.2, but they have a partnership with Google. So the only way to get the latest is to use Chrome. (You want the .deb file -- think of it like a Windows .msi or .exe installer.)LagerDrinker wrote:What should I be using for Flash? The adobe plugin or is there something better?
Most things. Thunderbird and Pidgin and VLC and Dropbox and LibreOffice and Shotwell and Clementine... and even Steam, now... but Flash isn't one of them.Was I doing something wrong and there is actually a more user friendly way of installing things?
You'll never need a 32 GB root. I'd suggest 8 for a normal user, or 10 with multiple desktop environments (most of it will be /usr and /opt). But /home should be as large as possible, and on its own partition.Any comments on whether I've got that bit about right would be appreciated.
