Hello there

Postby Edd443 on Fri Feb 01, 2013 8:52 pm

I'm a complete noob at linux, but I'm fascinated for how fast and reliable it is, so I want to learn to use it easily.
I've already posted some entries in this forum but I don't know why no one has repied yet. Maybe I'm doing someting wrong...
I like reading tutorials, so a good way to help me is sharing easy to follow articles and links with me.
I always try to be respectful when I post. If something looks offensive it's probably due to my limited command of English.
I hope I'll learn using these forums.
cheers

What do you do when you make a mistake in Ubuntu or Linux Mint? How do you take it back? That's my biggest fear when I try to use linux!

Welcome and yes can't take an hour or a day or two or not at all.
Depending on issue and those reading can answer your questions.
After a day I usually post a "bump" in my thread to refresh to top of new posts.

Also since Mint is based on Ubuntu. Be sure to join their forums also for places to get and find help.

Hang in there as will take a bit of time & patience to get the most out of Linux.

Yes, I could see that (and I replied back). Thank you!

A "bump"? do you mean making a comment on one's post? if not, how do you make a "bump" in order to refresh to new posts? I need to know because I asked this and NO-ONE has replied yet:
