Ok, well here's a brief description of these directory structures for you :
/bin - Binaries - This is where many of the executable files or "Programs" are stored. The programs are installed in this directory structure by the installation of application "Packages".
/boot - Operating System Boot Area - This is where you will find the operating system boot loader (Grub) and the actual kernel of the operating system.
/dev - Devices tree - This is where the operating system kernel builds a list of usable devices on the system at boot time.
/home - Home DIrectories - this is where you will find the Users Home Directories ... your home directory will be in this directory !
/etc - System configuration files - In here you will find many system configuration and startup/shutdown control files, go very careful if you edit any of these, the results
can be disasterous !
If I download a driver or a file how do I assign them, how do I open them or work with them.
It would appear I will need cli skills which at present I am trying to learn
I am 70 but am willing to work hard & learn quick.
I am sure once I ge the knack it will be easy & enjoyable
Well if you use the Linux Mint Package Manager you won't have to do any of the hard stuff as it will do it all for you !
Have a play with the package manager, install a few applications and you'll see what I mean
There is also the Linux Mint Software Portal, again it will do all the hard work for you ....
I hope this helps ...
